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.

Kolsvart med litet brunt skum. Doftar och smakar massor med choklad, kaffe, vanilj och lite chili på slutet. Riktigt fyllig och bra!

Pours black with one finger of pale khaki head. An aroma of mocca spreads out from the glass on pouring. Intense and creamy bouquet with milk chocolate, sweet vanilla and lots of black coffee. I get a lot less chili peppers on the nose in this compaired with the Pirate Bomb (funny because the only difference is supposed to be the rhum barrel ageing). Full bodied palate, creamy, big and quite delicious. Again less chili than in the Pirate Bomb. Long finish with notes of coffee with cream. Awesome stout as expected. It's only natural to compare this with the Pirate Bomb which might be even more expressive, but I think this comes across as more harmonious and integrated. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

sherm1016 (1255) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 22, 2015
12oz bottle received as an extra in trade. Pours a thick, jet black color with a thin tan head. Aroma is vanilla, chocolate, maybe a little ancho pepper. Heavy on the palate with light, creamy carbonation. Flavor is sweet, malty, chocolate, coffee, vanilla, some nice chili pepper heat, with a sweet, chocolatey finish. Very nice. Would love to be able to get this regularly.

This is fantastic!

A deep, deep brown almoust black beer with a three finger high, beigebrown head that dissapears fast and leaves no lacing on the glass.

Nose: Wow! This IS a bomb... Coffee, dark chocolate, vanilla, anchor chili, brown sugar, molasses and Turkish Pepper.
Taste: Sweet roasted malt, espresso, brown sugar, vanilla bean, chili, cocoa, dark fruit, oak, licorice... this is a complex taste!
Body: Full body with a complex texture. Light carbonation. A nice "sting" from the chili (but not too much - As we say in Sweden: "Lagom") - This is a beatiful, complex, tasty, big beer and still easy drinkable!

Nie wiem do końca, co zrobić z tym RIS-em. Z jednej strony bardzo ciekawy eksperyment, bo nuty wanilii przechodzą tutaj płynnie w chilli, czekoladę i kawę, z drugiej - połączenie tak odrębnych światów działa dość uderzająco na nozdrza i podniebienie. Brawa za odwagę. Bardzo interesująca rzecz, ale nie jestem pewien, czy chciałbym powtarzać.

Bottle. Pours a dark brown-black with a ring head, a slight swirl of tan foam, and complete opacity. Nose is vanilla, chocolate, coffee, peppers, and spice. Incredibly heavy and rich on the front of the tongue, with the peppers dominant on the mid-palate; the coffee stays strong all the way through, with vanilla and chocolate remaining as an undercurrent. The finish is spicy and hot, with clove, cinnamon, and smoke. Pretty darn good.

This is close to perfect. Great balance between the espresso beans, chocolate, vanilla beans, and ancho chile peppers. No harshness or edge usually associated with chili beers. All flavors get equal time. Similar to Abraxas. Not overly heavy dispite the complexity. Loved it.
