Prairie Artisan Ales Paradise

Prairie Paradise. Prairie Artisan Ales, Oklahoma.

Imperial Stout brewed with coconut & vanilla. 13% Alc. by Vol.

Utter blackness, under a beautiful, smooth, clean tanned head.

In the nose: starts quietly at first, but the flavors are slowly unfolding. Dark chocolate, sweet coconut, and a side order of vanilla. Enticing. Lovely.

In the mouth: Whoa. Flavors hit forceful and fierce, right from the start. A tasty combination, pleases the palate before the heat turns on. With each new sip, the deliciousness is chased by the alcohol burn. Pretty nice nightcap. Expensive (7.49’s what I paid), and plenty boozy. Have this as a once in while treat before you turn out the lights.

Here's a little inside info: It’s about to get really hot outside. How about a cold glass of refreshing Imperial Stout. Yep, you heard that right. Brand new to our line up is Prairie Paradise. We took a stout, gave it a hint of vanilla and a good deal of toasted coconut and created one season defying, genre bending brew. Imperial stouts are usually thought of as a cold weather beer, but here the coconut and vanilla blend push the image of the stout into a year round, all season style.
