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.

This beer is unique. Cocoa and chili peppers in this brew especially if you allow it to warm. Enjoy.

Sweet chocolate pepper aroma. Very sweet. Lots of chocolate and vanilla flavor with a mild peppery bite. Up there with the best.

Bottle from Tanakaya. Poured into a tulip pint. Pours a very deep, dark brown with a small and thin toasted brown head. Huge aromas of chocolate milk, vanilla, coffee grounds and a hint of alcohol as it warms with a slight chilli burn. Medium body with a nice rich flavor and slightly creamy mouthfeel. As it warms up, everything really stands out and becomes more pronounced. Overall sweet, but the bitterness and spice also get a chance to shine as well. Long complex finish that leaves your mouth with a little chili burn sensation. Everything I want in an Imperial stout.

Bottle, black opaque beer, brown sugar colored head fades to a ring. Aroma is coffee, cocoa, raisin, faint metal, vanilla, chilis. Taste is vanilla, coffee, cocoa, bourbony booze, chilis, faint metal. Palate is rich, not syrupy or thick, carbonation good, a touch sharp. This is a bit sweet. I also wonder at the ratings...it’s good, but not that good. Pretty boozy, too sweet.

MarkoNm (1192) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - APR 5, 2015
Pours a pitch black color, topped with a fairly small but lasting dark beige colored head. Very noticeable coffee aroma, some roasty notes and chocolate later on, and some mild vanilla scent some time later. Taste starts with some dark fruity sweetness, followed by strong coffee bitterness and some chocolate presence. Finish again coffee. Complex, with slight feel of alcohol. Creamy and thick. A bit too coffee-liek for me, but still very tasty.

The pour is this beautiful black with a very thin tan head. The aroma is coffee but I?m not getting much of it, little stuffed up so that could be the reason. The taste is malty, caramel up front & then ends with this pleasant fruity, like a fig, chocolaty, coffee taste. Amazing beer that is really balanced. Would recommend!

Black pour with brown head. Aromas of chili peppers, vanilla, burnt malts, brown sugar. Full bodied, creamy, alcohol well integrated. The peppers provide a nice lingering heat without being over the top. Some sweetness and big roast. Tasty.

bartzluke (201) - Oklahoma, USA - APR 1, 2015
12 oz pour from room temperature bottle in Spiegelau stout glass. Black and opaque. Strong, tan, lasting head. Beautiful beer. Nose is roasty-- chocolate and coffee. Perfectly creamy mouthfeel with minimal carbonation. The oatmeal is a great touch. Taste is simple awesome. Flavors really develop. Chocolate to coffee, roastiness and a little burnt underneath. Well balanced maltiness and sweetness. Little bitterness. Ends with a bit of little chili bite. Warming with some lingering alcohol as well. Surprisingly hidden, considering the abv. Great beer.

PorterPounder (6041) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAR 28, 2015
Tallahassee, Fl - Quick N Save - 12 oz bottle. Pours a thick black motor oil-like pour, tight, mocha colored head that hangs around a while, very light lacing. Aroma has a nice presence of cacao nibs, a touch of Kahlua, hints of licorice. Flavor is bold and delectable, sweet espresso notes, some roasted notes, a touch of fennel seed. Thick, sticky mouthfeel. Thanks to Aaron at Quick N Save for the tip on this excellent beer!
