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.

Pours black with light brown head. A strong chocolate, coffee, and vanilla aroma. A great taste of chocolate, coffee, vanilla, malts, and oak. A dry aftertaste from coffee and grains.

Saeglopur (1612) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - MAR 19, 2016
355 ml bottle from BeerLovers Vienna, bottled 21/5/15.
Pitch black, oily liquid, with a tiny, coffee-colored head.
Aroma of chili, pepper, espresso, liquorice, cocoa powder, wood, dark chocolate, vanilla, dark fruits.
Wonderful, complex, dense taste, with the same aromas and a great balance between sweet, roasty, dry, some booziness and a medium hot spiciness.
Full, oily mouthfeel, with a moderate carbonation.
Finishes warm, quite boozy, medium hot, medium dry, roasty, moderate bitter, a bit sweet.

Very tasty! Quite hot and peppery, but well integrated into the heavy, complex, roasty-sweet malt body, with lovely, dry coffee notes. Drinks quite smooth despite the booziness, which isn’t too overpowering. Really characterful and also well balanced sipper, while not among my very favourite style examples.

CacheManyHose (555) - HONG KONG - MAR 14, 2016
Last of the five beers Matt bought back from Sam Diego. Opaque black pour, small dark tan fizzy head. Smell is huge: black coffee, dark lightly spicy malt, slightly roasted chilis, chocolate, vanilla, stone/granite, herbal bitter finish that's astringent/heavy, almost like paint. Taste is dark roast malt, moderate to heavy spiciness, sweet lightly syrupy booze, chocolate, herbal bitterness. Body is thick, bitter, stony, slightly chewy sharp finish. Huge, complex, gets richer and spicier as it warms up, chillis give the nose a nice roasty warmth. Excellent, deserves its high rating.

HKdIPA (633) - HONG KONG - MAR 14, 2016
Bottle from SD at home in HK. Really nice looking - thick black pour with dark mocha brown thin head. Aroma is huge vanilla, milk chocolate, plum-like ancho chili. Lots going on. Taste is similarly complex - huge chocolate coffee bitterness followed by booze followed by chili heat in the throat. Lasting dark chocolate/espresso bitterness with boozy warmth, enhanced by the chili. Palate is rich but a little bit powdery. Wow as it warms it gets spicier. Very nice use of chili. Really good complex imperial stout, only disappointment is texture.

Lodgewick (62) - Finland, Espoo, FINLAND - MAR 13, 2016
Bottle at home. Pours black with medium beige head. Aroma is espresso coffee, chocloate, vanilla, some roastiness and a hint of alcohol. Unbelievable taste! Sweet coffee, chocolate, vanilla, spices and chocolate sour and bitter aftertaste with bite of chili and spices. Full body, very high viscosity. Huge beer!

AndresTM (434) - Texas, USA - MAR 12, 2016
Subdued dark chocolate, iced coffee, earthy hops, burnt/caramely malts, and a hint of peppery heat in the aroma. In general not as intense or interesting as it should on paper be -- then again, I split the bottle, which for some reason always results in an underwhelming aromatic experience. Thick and silky mouthfeel. Medium-bitter in the mouth, with the peppery heat blending well with the prickly booze. Residual sweetness from all the barley. Very good, but I need to try it again.

VDuquerroux (1133) - Airvault, FRANCE - MAR 9, 2016
Bottle, 12fl. oz. Home. A shining black night beer with light brown hues on top ; small beige head ; poor retention. Black chocolate, coffee, vanilla, roast, toast, pepper, light herb. Medium to heavy sweet, round, light warming, light dry refreshing wind. Full body, light to medium oily texture, soft carbonation, spicy warming chocolate coffee lasting finish. Overall, a truly delicious elegant imperial stout ; BOOM ! Beware, aromatic bomb !! Highly drinkable :)

screigh (625) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - MAR 8, 2016
Pours a black color with red ruby highlights. The thinnest of heads. Sweet malty rich aroma. Taste reminds me a bit like Dark Lord. If there is any pepper taste or heat it is very, very minor in the finish.

YogiBeera (2567) - New Jersey, USA - MAR 5, 2016
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.
