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.

Bottle at home. Pours black with medium beige head. Aroma is espresso coffee, chocloate, vanilla, some roastiness and a hint of alcohol. Unbelievable taste! Sweet coffee, chocolate, vanilla, spices and chocolate sour and bitter aftertaste with bite of chili and spices. Full body, very high viscosity. Huge beer!

AndresTM (434) - Texas, USA - MAR 12, 2016
Subdued dark chocolate, iced coffee, earthy hops, burnt/caramely malts, and a hint of peppery heat in the aroma. In general not as intense or interesting as it should on paper be -- then again, I split the bottle, which for some reason always results in an underwhelming aromatic experience. Thick and silky mouthfeel. Medium-bitter in the mouth, with the peppery heat blending well with the prickly booze. Residual sweetness from all the barley. Very good, but I need to try it again.

VDuquerroux (1230) - Airvault, FRANCE - MAR 9, 2016
Bottle, 12fl. oz. Home. A shining black night beer with light brown hues on top ; small beige head ; poor retention. Black chocolate, coffee, vanilla, roast, toast, pepper, light herb. Medium to heavy sweet, round, light warming, light dry refreshing wind. Full body, light to medium oily texture, soft carbonation, spicy warming chocolate coffee lasting finish. Overall, a truly delicious elegant imperial stout ; BOOM ! Beware, aromatic bomb !! Highly drinkable :)

Pours a black color with red ruby highlights. The thinnest of heads. Sweet malty rich aroma. Taste reminds me a bit like Dark Lord. If there is any pepper taste or heat it is very, very minor in the finish.

WOw. what a treat my hosts give me here in Oklahoma. Coffee liquor nose, roasted. Dark Chocolate, chocolate covered espresso beans, on the first sip you get chili, and it does explode on your first sip too. the chili mellows out. Dry not sweet, very long aftertaste. It is really amazing!

A rumos hordóban érlelt főzethez korábban már volt szerencsém, annak a változatnak a képe pedig még elevenen él bennem, így könnyedén összehasonlíthatóvá vált a kétféle típus. A maradandó emlékeket a kalóz-verzió eredetisége, vad és izgalmas, mégis elegáns vonalvezetésű ízvilága garantálta, jellemvonások tekintetében így az alap-főzet sem okozhat váratlan meglepetést. A lehengerlő, mégis ismerősnek ható aromaszerkezet a kakaóporos, kókuszos, őrölt paprikás vonásokkal ez esetben is gyönyörűen felépül; a telt, sima és bársonyos, gömbölyű alapokon nyugvó test a vaníliás, kávés, tejcsokoládés jegyek biztosította krémes réteg, majd a megkapóan éles, pikáns, paprikás fűszeresség talaján emlékezetes formában teljesedik ki. Miután a rumos érlelés jótékony hatását alkalmam volt megtapasztalni, nem mondom, hogy a létező legjobb kombináció, ami a rendelkezésre álló komponensek felhasználásával elérhető, önmagában azonban egy kimagasló minőségű, utánozhatatlan stílusú imperial stout megtestesülése.

Woo Hoo! we got Barry to try this beer..... you grumbling momo! He looked confused after his first sip. Yes, I know, I spent good money on a beer that used coffee, and a good bit of it. I found it pleasant and not overwhelming due to the cocoa and muted Chile tones. Nice and astringent at start with warming and sweetening by finish. I agree that the 13% just is hard to believe.

Bottle split three ways with pals. Poured to stone mug. Looks like my morning coffee...but better. Brown thick head. Nose is all about the coffee. Palate is a ping pong match between the light and sweet coffee and the warm Hershey kiss from my jeans pocket. Lips are sticky. Finding all of the 13% is tough.

Thanks to dhatton. Pours inky oily black with a small dark tan head. Aroma is dark chocolate, espresso beans, vanilla, peat and earthy. Taste is acrid bitters with mild sweetness. Medium bodied, silky smooth and a little heat on the finish. Excellent Imperial Stout.

Draft at the Stone Pour it Black Event. A very good beer, but among all the giants I had at this event it actually didn’t stack up. Hard to believe
