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.

piscator34 (2046) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - FEB 8, 2015
On draft. Near black in colour with moderate carbonation. Aromas are of Kahlua filled dark chocolates. Tastes like a lightly carbonated Black Russian cocktail, with notes of smooth coffee, dark chocolate, vanilla and vodka. A bit of chili heat creeps in at the back end. Heavy bodied with a very mellow mouthfeel. I understand why a lot of raters are into this one, but I kinda miss some of the more aggressive roast notes that other coffee aged Imperial stouts have. It’s just a little too smooth for me.

Pours a thick black with mocha head. Aromas are dominated by coffee with notes of bakers chocolate. Dark fruit too. Flavors are strong coffee, dark chocolate with a nice mild warmth at the end. Luxurious mouthfeel. Phenomenal stuff.

wedgie9 (2501) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 2, 2015
Tasted in July of 2013 from a bottle with the Nashville crew, and many times subsequently. Pours black with a thin brown head that leaves a thin collar. The nose is very complex with tons of milk and dark chocolate, molasses, coffee trending to expresso darkness, light vanilla, and some chili spice. The flavor is a bit lighter much spicier than anticipated, with all of the molasses, chocolate, coffee, and very light vanilla balancing. The body is massive with average, but smooth carbonation, and a long complex and spicy finish.

Orange wax bottle courtesy of the kingly tderoeck (Thanks again!). The pour shows an oil slick black with a very sparse but dark coffee foam. The nose shows fresh chocolate and vanilla with pronounced notes of espresso. The palate immediately shows the chili spiciness but quickly dissipates and only adds a dash of heat. Highly carbonated and light bodied. The flavors shows abundant dark chocolate with coffee beans and a light vanilla whisper to freshen the dark flavors. The finish once again shows the chili spiciness on return but only to tickle the tongue so as to invite the drinker for more. In short, superb.

12-oz. Thanks so much, A! Pours jet black with a dense and creamy dark tan head that sticks around forever. Big heavy sweet roasty coffee and dark chocolate nose, Sticky thick heavy body with soft carb. Not as much coffee on the mid palate as on the nose--dark chocolate and roast and some black licorice showing. Long earthy sweet roasty finish.

small 12 oz bottle, I’d prefer this in a bomber, or a growler, or a 3 liter magnum, or a 5 gal bucket, or a swimming pool. Nose was a bit unimpressive with a bouquet of dusty cacao and some faint chili peppers. Taste was very chocolaty with chilies very subtly blended for a exquisite drinking experience. This shit is the Bomb.
