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.

(draft @ The Old Toad - Rochester, NY) Dark black pour with a thick tan head. Heavy roasted coffee and chocolate aroma with the lightest hint of vanilla and peppers. Flavor is a definite bomb. Heavy roasted chocolate and coffee notes, lots of vanilla and a ton of nice pepper warmth. [9/4/15]

Flaska. Svart öl med ett beigt skum. Dofter av kaffe, trä, rostad malt och peppar. Smakar detsamma, förutom att det finns en alkoholhetta med i bilden också. Oljig munkänsla. Lite för skarp i kanterna för min del.

Really wanted to like this. Waited to pair this with food that met some of its ingredients. My sis in law made some ice cream sandwiches with chilles in the cookie figured this would pair well. It would have, but I didn’t expect the strength of the coffee. Anyways.. Appearance- looks good pitch black. Smell- again fine. Coffee coming out though. Taste- with all the other favors it boasts all that really showed up was the coffee. Disappointed. A little heat in the back end from the chilles. No vanilla beans or cocoa nibs like I was hoping. M- felt fine on the tongue and nice to drink. Alcohol taste was discreet. Overall- just maybe trade your other one if the opportunity arises. You don’t like coffee and have had other coffee tasting beers that tasted better than this one anyway. Nice to try it, but let me down.

Bottle. Pours jet black with a thin layer of mocha foam. Aroma is an enticing blend of chili peppers, coffee, dark chocolate malt and toasted oak. Flavor is a mix of espresso, charred malt and dark chocolate liqueur at the start followed by notes of green chili, molasses and vanilla. Mouthfeel is silky smooth and slightly syrupy with more roasted malt and chocolate chili in the finish. Overall, a satisfyingly potent flavor Bomb.

Two 12 oz bottles shared by ebone1988. The pour is a nice light black with some ruby poking through and a thin collar of light tan head and no real lace. The aroma is overwhelmingly chocolate. There is a nice coffee and a good vanilla. The chilis are present, but relaxed, which is what I really like. The flavor is really good also. There is a dominating chocolate it's a powdered cocoa that controls it. The vanilla and the coffee are way overshadowed here. The chilis make an appearance on the far back end and sooth the booze that doesn't come through at all. The mouth feel is great. Thick and viscous with a soft velvety carbonation and a lingeringly chocolatey, roasty finish. Great stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at Beavertown Rainbow Project 2015, Tottenham, London. A black coloured pour with a medium beige head on top. Rich, chocolate, coffee, vanilla aroma. Tastes similar, very rich, chocolate, coffee, vanilla, hint of chilli. Hard to believe this was 13% alcohol. An excellent Imperial stout, glad to have found it at last.
