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.

Thanks to pushkinwow for this. Pours black with a small frothy beige head. Aroma is roasted malts, coffee and chili peppers. Taste is suprisingly not that hot. The palate is clean with roasted malt, light coffee and dark chocolate. Tiny hint of burn in the end but nowhere close to the nose.

A deep dark stout with a thin brown head. In aroma, loads of hot pepper, pungent and musky, jalapeno, very nice. In mouth, a smooth fruity chocolate malt with light pepper, light vanilla, surprisingly surprisingly balanced and smooth, very nice. Bottle from pushkinwow.

bottle thanks to OKbeerFan. thanks to Mrs. Homer for making me open it. poured into duvel glass. nose of strong chocolate and coffee with some vegetal notes. pitch black in color with a medium brown head. Taste is initially all chocolate with some coffee mid palate. the heat from the peppers seems to come out in the finish and mostly in the throat. the peppers seem to be a bit vegetal and taste ’green’. heat is just about right, doesn’t mask or over power the other additives to the beer, but the base stout seems to be a bit lacking. overall, very good, but a lot going on in the beer. the coffe and heat seem to clash a bit, but otherwise a pretty solid beer.

Bottle; Pour is dark brown, with a fine bubbled, one finger dark khaki head into this snifter. The pour retains fairly well, with some sticky lacing present here. The nose is dark chocolate and chocolate cake initial; roasty coffee notes moving forward, with caramel and dark fruits presenting themselves to a hint of booze and I suppose there’s a chili note here. It’s feint. I wouldn’t have commented on it without it in the description. The flavor profile is robust initial; cacao, vanilla, roast rounds it out nicely. There’s mild bitter moving to cake, caramel, and again, a hint of chili. The moral of the story is that the 14% is hidden well here. I’m not exactly impressed with the brew as it is - Pirate Bomb was another story.
