Very nice imperial stout with chocolate from beginning to end. Vanilla is a definite flavor but no chili pepper taste, just a slight resinous-spicy hot finish at the back of the throat. Almost oil-black with a tan head.

Omg I’m in love! Pours pitch black w/ the tiniest tan head w/out much lacing. The aroma is pure melted chocolate. The taste is chocolate galore & is absolutely exquisite on the palate. It’s soft yet so robust w/ flavor! It’s like drinking a Hershey bar but better! Absolutely fantastic!

L: very dark, tiny highlights around the edges. Small tan head.
S: oh man. Delicious big complex aroma. Chocolate slightly stronger than the awesome coffee and vanilla notes. It smells rich and inviting.
T: wham! Nailed it. Flavours all there not overpowering each other, but sitting harmoniously. The vanilla sweetness aligns with the peppers which give a roasted warmth.
F: the body is intense, the alcohol is not in the taste but in the feel, warming the chest and throat.
O: damn. Not only the best imperial stout but maybe the best beer I’ve had the pleasure to drink. Insane.

Smells of chocolate, leather, alcohol and soy sauce. Poured black with little to no head. Thick and astringent palate. Cocoa nibs and the alcohol are the dominating tastes. Good beer but I don’t think it’s really all it’s hyped up to be. I had been hoarding this beer waiting for the right time to drink it but it’s not worth waiting to share with anyone.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Deep chocolately opaque brown, minimal tan head. Big lacto sweet notes, light vegetal pepper notes. Quite sweet, light spiciness. Fairly hot, medium chewy body, long aftertaste. Quite good.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from a 12 ounce bottle. The aroma is chocolate, spicy, peppery, coffee. The flavor is less peppery, warming, coffee, chocolate. There is a strong sweetness, sugary. Good beer but I find it to be out of balance. I cannot tell if the pepper notes are only from the peppers or if some of them are from the coffee.

Theres a reason this is called Bomb! This comes off the nose as chocolate, coffee, some spice (floral,), maybe some nuts. The taste is bonkers. It hits everything it says it does. A great beer and definitely worth the price of admission.

Pours pitch black with a small brown head. Smells strongly of chocolate, coffee, roast, and lightly of peppers. Taste is chocolate, coffee, hints of chili pepper heat. Full-bodied with a smooth, silky texture and soft mouth-carbonation, Prairie Bomb! finishes with a soft lingering pepper heat and soft coffee acidity.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Appearance: pours with practically no head, I did see hints of a tan head, the beer is intensely black, even on the edges
Aroma: coffee, chili peppers, chocolate, smoke, dark roasted grain, smells good
Taste: chocolate, coffee, on the sweeter side, alcohol warmth, slight coffee bitterness, the pepper is discernable but it's not hot at all
Palate: very thick and heavy mouthfeel, soft carbonation, coffee aftertaste
Overall: this is really good, I was worried that the very high abv would dominate the taste but it's actually very well hidden, nice complexity and very well rounded
