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.

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

Bue en bouteille de 33cl. Couleur noir pétrole. Fine mousse beige peu persistante. Nez chocolat à fond. Palais explosif. Arômes intenses de chocolat, vanille, épices, café. Un délice. Sublime.

One of the best RIS out there. Oily with rich palate. Dark chocolate, smoked and dried plum and hot chili in the background. Well balanced and delicious.

Alengrin (4081) - BELGIUM - FEB 29, 2016
Highly acclaimed, flavoured imperial stout from Oklahoma’s Prairie Artisan Ales, tasted at Struise’s shop in Brugues. Creamy, medium thick, pale yellowish beige, more or less stable head over a black beer with slightly ruby-hued edges. Amazing and mouth watering bouquet of milk chocolate, vanilla, roasted paprika, cappuccino, marzipan, coconut, fine coffee, haemoglobin, Belgian chocolates, stewed beef, brown sugar and fairly strong paint- or varnish-like solvents, however drowned in this big maltiness and spiciness and therefore not in the least disturbing or off-putting. Rich, thick taste, intense but refined candied sweetness (dried banana, coconut, dates, marmelade) with soft mushroom-like umami aspects and basic sourishness, soft carbo, layer upon layer of sweet, thick, viscous and oily maltiness, caramelly, deliciously and intensely chocolatey and eventually mildly roasted with sugared coffee flavours, absolutely divine retronasal vanilla and bell pepper rather than sharp chili peppers, no real chili pepper burn but certainly spicy and tangy in the end, on top of ongoing chocolate sweetness and warming, bourbon-like alcohol drying the end phase without becoming tiring at any point. This is absolutely delicious; in terms of style, it clearly belongs to the sweeter, syrupy end of the imperial stout scale, with an overall result that seems in fact closer to imperial porter than imperial stout. Whatever the case, this is a masterpiece of American craft brewing, as far as I’m concerned.

bottle - Pours black with an aroma of dark roast malt, coffee, chocolate, peppers, and alcohol. The flavor is intense with all the elements I noted in the aroma blending together in a tasty, balanced way. The alcohol is noticeable but minimal for a 13% abv brew. It’s full bodied with some bitterness in the finish. Excellent beer.
