Prairie Artisan Ales Bomb!

Prairie Bomb!
Imperial Stout aged on coffee, cacao nibs, vanilla bean & chili peppers. (I'm guessing this is a Coffee/Chili/Vanilla/Cacao "bomb"?)

Utter blackness, rich cocoa/tan head, a good 1/2" sitting pretty on top.

In the nose: chili pops out first, coffee next, then cocoa fills in next....sweet, hot, rich, immense.

In the mouth: sweetness first, coffee follows, then comes the heat. Nicely integrated hugeness--a calamity of flavors that somehow comes together. More sweet, more chocolate, more coffee, more huge. The chili becomes a little more subdued as the other flavors commingle.

Has alcohol arrived yet? Oh, it's only 13%, is it? It's slowly, inevitably becoming apparent.

Boom, boom, boom...it's a BOMB!

Oh, this is tasty. The chili heat takes a back seat at first, letting the other flavors shine.

Tremendous beer, simply amazing. Astonishingly good.
