COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bomb! is an imperial stout aged on espresso beans, chocolate, vanilla beans, and ancho chile peppers. All the flavors meld to create a truly unique beer. The peppers add just the right amount of heat to compliment the intense coffee and chocolate flavors.

Dominant spicy aroma. Pepper pepper and pepper. The malt balances out he spice perfectly. One of the best spiced stouts out there.

Pours dark, dark dark. Choco-coffee aroma with hints of the vanilla beans, but not the peppers. Flavor is exceptional. Not bitter. Good cold, better as it warms.

Cunningham (6556) - Halden, NORWAY - JAN 2, 2016
Lovely beer to start a new year.
Complete black (surprise surprise) with a creamy beige head. Nice lacing down the sides of the glass. Quite rich and fine intensity in the aroma. Full body and a soft ish carbonation. Ok balance between sweetness and bitterness. A bit oily texture. Complex little devil, but not that much chili. And thatís good. Coffee, chocolate, roast and some spices. Well masked alcohol.
[Bottle from Systembolaget web order in Sweden]

Bottle to snifter, Aroma of coffee, chocolate, and a hint of spice. Taste just seems off, very little spice loads off coffee to the point nothing but a bit of a metallic flavor come through, will try again but not impressed with round 1

Bottle at home while visiting Jacksonville. pours a dark brown with little head. Lovely lightly sweet choc, vanilla aroma. Medium to full body, light carbonation. Smoky choc and coffee, rum and dark fruit, bitter coffee, sweet treacle, prunes... A treat.

355ml bottle (Alus Celle, Riga)
Beeeeeeeeenz!!!! Coffee, and chilli, quite a combo, double-bean! Some chocolate too. Then the sweet creamy tinned sweetcorn takes over, and it dominates for the rest of the time. Sweet slick palate, no carbonation, so itís almost slimy. Stale cold coffee, sweet, corny, some slight hint of chilli pepper. It doesnít say 13%, thatís the only positive thing I can say. Bonus point for that. Complete fuckup of a stout in almost every possible way. Only got the colour right.

ARH (1100) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 31, 2015
UPDATED: JAN 26, 2016 12oz bottle, poured into a snifter. The aroma is initially a sweet cherry which fades and reveals a caramel and chocolate blend. The aroma of cherry doughnuts is noticeable late, with hint of chili peppers. The appearance is an oily brown topped by a tan, dense foam head that has mild retention and leaves decent lace. The taste is highly sweet with a complimentary medium high bitter. The creamy texture is sticky with a dense fuzz carbonation. The full bodied beer contains notes of cocoa nibs, vanilla, and coffee. The smooth finish reveals a strong, sweet caramel with hints of vanilla and a mild dark fruit along with a mellow chili heat (overall, kinda like chocolate chip cookies with chili powder). The aftertaste is mainly cacao, with a mild chili, and vanilla combination thatís slightly cloying.

Pours a blackish brown with very thin light of brown head around the glass. Smells like chocolate and a slight hint of bourbon. Tastes of chocolate and vanilla. The ancho chili finishes at the end and on the palate. Awesome beer!

PabloZab (973) - Wroclaw, POLAND - DEC 29, 2015
Tap (Szynkarnia, Wroclaw). Barwa niemal czarna z subtelna, brazowa piana, praktycznie bez lacingu. W aromacie wyrazna gorzka czekolada podkreslona nuta chilli i wanilii ale w bardzo subtelnym wydaniu i subtelna nuta, ulozonego alkoholu, bardzo przyjemna. W smaku mega czekolada z nuta chili minimalnie pikantna na koncu jezyka i delikatnym slodkim posmakiem wanilii. Piwo o lekko oleistej konsystencji ale lekkie w odbiorze jak na swoj woltaz, mega czekoladowe, niebezpiecznie pijalne.
