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: FEB 6, 2015 My Bottom Line:
Coffee, milk chocolate, spicy suggestions, vanilla and roasted cereals are harmoniously organized before pepper heat seals this treat of an Imperial Stout.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A slice of foam tops the impenetrable darkness.
-Chili pepper flavors only appear after the malts and residual sugars have done their work. A nice way to balance out a gargantuan brew.
-This is quite refined for a dessert brew with so many components. Definitely more refined (to me) than Hunahpu, for example.
-Effervescence is soft and the mouthfeel is quite comfortable.
-There is a very soft/quiet middle in this brew which makes the product much easier to approach despite its potency.
-This is 14% alcohol?! It’s amazingly hidden.

UPDATED: MAY 22, 2014 Bottle... This beer rocks!… Pours tar black with a small, creamy, tan head. Good retention. The bouquet is a decadent mélange of brownies, vanilla, mocha, roasted tree nuts and cinnamon. Medium to full-bodied and creamy with tingly carbonation. The rich, robust flavor is a malty swirl of fudge, espresso, cinnamon, vanilla and spicy-warm chili peppers. Lightly bitter, charcoal finish with lingering vanilla and chili pepper warmth. Thanks to landhoney for providing this luxurious, world class vanilla Bomb! I love it!

Pretty much stands up to all the hype. The aroma is an explosion of chili, vanilla, mocha. I swear I also smelled algae or kelp of some sort. The flavor delivers a lot of vanilla and just a hint of chili, but not really any spiciness going on. Alcohol is hidden pretty well and all and all is a decadent, syrupy treat. Tasted like a chili, vanilla fudge tart.

Bottle thanks to Darrel. Pours out jet black topped with a tan head. Nose is nice milk chocolate roast spice and some vanilla. Taste is as the nose with lots of chocolate roast some spice. This is very nice.

Every ingredient shines and creates an absolutely amazing balance of flavor and complexity. I’d say more but it’s been said and I’m bowled over. Welllll done prairie.

Tap @ CBC14-yellow. Black with a tan head. Roasted jalapeno nose with dark chocolate roastedness. Full thick, but nicely bitter, body. Some jalapeno-y flavours again, some milky chocolate. Lovely stout.

CBC 2014, fad. Så cremet, så fed, så sort. Masser af choko og wiener melange. Blød som fløjl. Og med et diskret lille chili-bite til sidst.
