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.

UPDATED: APR 12, 2015 Looks pretty. Nice black color nice head. The nose is bog on coffee and hot pebers. Not much sweetness on the nose. The palate is creamy and the taste is chocolaty, big on coffee and rather dry. As I recall a whole lot like Plead the 5th.. Would like to try Pirate Bomb! Tried this again and thought it was great - still a roasted/ashy core but also dark chocolate and sweet notes. Even better second time around.

Draft. Black pour, with a biege head. Lots of chocolate, vanilla bean, bitter roasted malt, earthy, coffee, and mild chili pepper. Alcohol is not really noticeable. Very nice stout.

Aarond (150) - Wilmington, North Carolina, USA - MAR 5, 2014
Bottle. Aroma is coffee, chocolate, roasted barley, vanilla, and booze. Appearance is black with with a khaki colored head. Very good lacing. Taste is chocolate, brownies, vanilla, coffee, malty bitterness, and then some heat at the end. Full body with moderately low carbonation. Overall a rich, complex, creative, and well balanced imperial stout. Very delicious.

Inbreak (2638) - Loddefjord, NORWAY - MAR 4, 2014
UPDATED: APR 10, 2015 04.03.2014, 0,35l bottle @ home:
Big brown creamy longlasting head. Aroma is rich and slightly sweet, espresso, dried chillies, chocolate pudding, dark sugar, vanilla, dark malts, licorice, caramel. Taste is slightly dry and burnt, espresso, dark malts, vanilla, cocoa, dried chillies, grass, licorice, burnt caramel, dark sugar. Longlasting mild bitterness, slightly thick syrupy mouthfeel, mice warming chili touch. Very nice. It’s just incredible how they have camouflaged 14% ABV to being around 6-7%.

Rando7 (774) - Iowa, USA - MAR 3, 2014
Bottle pours very dark brown with tan head. Aroma strong coffee with slight roast and dark chocolate. Taste roast malts with cocoa. I didn’t pick up much vanilla. Palate thick and rich. Finish mild dull roast and moderate pepper burn. Peppers integrated nicely into this. Alcohol very well disguised but a little more alcohol presence wouldn’t have hurt actually.

Pours black with soapy tan head. Nose is coffee, milk chocolate, hint of vanilla. Taste is coffee beans, chocolate, cacao, there's a tingle/spicy note in the middle and especially in the aftertaste that I'm assuming is the chili peppers, then ends with bitter coffee. Mouthfeel is thick and sticky, but not chewy/overly viscous. Sweet but not overly so. It's a really good well balanced stout. Not too much of anything, very solid beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

kidmartinek (3741) - austin, Texas, USA - MAR 3, 2014
Black. Alchy tan head. Aroma is mostly coffee with a hint of cocoa. Tastes like a 6.7% coffee porter so be careful. Quite an accomplishment for alcohol hiding, though I’m not so sure as y’all how great of an idea that is.

It poured a dark brown color with a tan head. The aroma was of vanilla, roasted malts, chocolate and mild dark fruits. The taste was of roasted malts, chocolate, vanilla and chili peppers. Mighty tasty.

Appearance - black. No head. Aroma - slightly sweet. Hints of chocolate. Terrifically light. Mouth - slightly more carb than the pour suggested. Not as oily and viscous but I would consider it low carb. Taste - very gentle start. Excellent chocolate malt flavor at the finish. Didn't detect any pepper. The gravity is well hidden. Tongue slightly tingles after some time. Not in your face but balanced well. Overall - this beer is fantastic.
