Prairie Artisan Ales - Evil Twin Brewing Bible Belt Imperial Stout
Hello beer lovers and welcome to another edition of the NorCal Beer Blog's brew review.
Tonight’s featured beer is Prairie Artisan Ales - Evil Twin Brewing Bible Belt - Even More Imperial Stout Aged On Coffee, Vanilla, Chilies, and Cacao Nibs. I picked this bottle up at Caps & Taps in Dublin. As I’ve said many times before, please visit local shops and support them. The guys at Caps & Taps (here) are really cool and if you go in there tell ‘em you heard about them here.
From the Prairie Artisan Ales website: “Let’s face it – we love big, flavorful stouts. As luck would have it, our friend Jeppe at Evil Twin Brewing feels the same way. We decided to brew a beer together that took elements from our favorite stouts we each produce to come together as one beer. Bible Belt takes elements we love from Prairie Bomb! and combines them with Evil Twin Brewing’s world famous stout, Even More Jesus. The end result is a smoky, spicy stout that is sure to please the pallet.”
Let’s get started!
Appearance: Pours jet black with a thin tan head and nice lacing.
Aroma: Cacoa, coffee, dark and chocolate malts, vanilla and a touch of chili powder.
Taste: Exceptional blend of coffee, chocolate, vanilla and just the slightest touch of chili. The fudgy sweetness is over the top delicious and, dare I say…perfect.
Overall: Full-bodied, smooth and tasty, Prairie Artisan Ales - Evil Twin Brewing Bible Belt is great. The 13% ABV is well hidden. If you happen to find this one, pick it up. Fans of the style will greatly enjoy this.
