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.

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. Fantabox

Sampled at ESBLS. Surprised I have never rated this one. A lot going on in this beer. Roasted malts, fruit, peppers, and spice. It is tempting to compare this to something like Hunahpu bit is its own beer and that comparison is unfair. This is good.

Aroma of chili, red paprika, licorice, milk chocolate, light coffee with faints of vanilla. Every component is present in its own, you can clearly feel chocolate, vanilla, and the taste of peppers with a lingering finish, this is very well integrated with a nice chili touch and without any booze. Really solid.

13%ABV. Imperial Chocolate Stout. Poured out of the bottle a syrupy black, 40ºSRM. Nose is sweet and full of rich cocoa notes, like dark chocolate. Some nice rich buttery, toffee like aromas. Nicely balanced carbonation. Palate has coffee, dark chocolate, cocoa nibs, vanilla, chickory, Finish is carbon, bitter hops and a very pleasant residual aroma of a dark chocolate lava cake, with hints of butter and flour. So nice. Goes on Favorites List.

Amazing beer that gives room to both the coffee, vanilla, chocolate and the, subtle, chili. What a beer.

Draft. Poured black with a short-lived dark brown head. The aroma picked up sweet molasses, cocoa, and lighter chili notes.. very decadent. The flavor found cocoa and other delicious black malts upfront, with cinnamon and peppery spicage following.. warm with great balance between spices and rich stout on the finish. Heavy-bodied with just the right carbonation on the palate.. great balance.. awesome!

Bottle into snifter glass, opaque deep dark brown (black) color with thin tan lacing. Aroma notes of heavy roasted malt, peppers, coffee, chocolate, tobacco earthiness, vanilla and wood char. Taste adds chocolate milk, almost chai spices, chili pepper, licorice, light coffee, bitter dark chocolate and some smokey ash. Heavy body, low carbonation, creamy, soft, rich with lingering pepper roast finish. A imperial stout with everything thrown in the tank, and it’s excellent.

Nische (1221) - Saltsjö-Boo, SWEDEN - AUG 11, 2015
Bottle from Systembolaget. Pitch black with quickly fading khaki head. Huge aroma of coffee with some leather, spices, liquorice and vanilla. Dry taste of coffee, chocolate, liquorice, vanilla and dry finish where the spicy peppers shine through at the back of the tongue. Lovely.

Excellent; super smooth. Don’t really pick up the peppers except maybe at the end of the finish. Some booze in there. Supremely balanced. Not so much a bomb as a velvet hammer.
