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.

Fantabox (18) - USA - JAN 31, 2014
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

Hammy78 (942) - Dundas, Ontario, CANADA - APR 27, 2016
Bottle from my main man Justin in Rochester. Pours absolutely opaque, with a tan head that doesn’t stay long or leave any lace behind. Nose is a sweet coffee blast. Tastes sweet, roasted malt, a little bitter chocolate, quite sugary, toffee, brown sugar, raisin and without a doubt coffee bitter. The peppers show up very subtly. This stuff meets the hype.

Douberd (4300) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - APR 26, 2016
(Prairie Bomb!) Bottle 355 ml at home, many thanks to rouhlas! Served into a snifter, ABV 13% Black coloured body with a good sized and quite thick dark tan head sitting in top, good retention. Aroma has lots of coffee grounds, lots of chili peppers too, milky chocolate as it warms up, faint alcohol. Taste has more chocolate and cocoa, vanilla, well hidden alcohol, hints of chilie peppers but not a big burn, light coal, more chocolate on the finish. Medium thick body with good carbonation, slightly sticky on the palate. Pretty good.

dnicolaescu (1623) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - APR 24, 2016
BOTTLE 12 OZ. Pitch black with a beige head. Tons of coffee and cacao in the nose, that, along with the sweetness and the hot peppers, makes it feel like a liquid chili-flavoured chocolate. The taste is super big! Sweet, but only moderately so, molasses, dark caramel and coffee followed by a moderate bitterness that is half hops and half cilies. The alcohol just adds to the spice. Despite all the intensity, the body is quite easy drinking. An excellent beer.

Shag (2765) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - APR 23, 2016
Pitch black with a minimal beige head. Aroms is coffee, espresso to be exact, chocolate, and a hint of chili peppers. The chili peppers not there much in the flavor just sweet chocolate and more espresso. Overall this sweet not boozy or hot. Nice.

Bawelt (374) - Lyon, FRANCE - APR 20, 2016
Juste extraordinaire. Nez complexe, parfaitement équilibré : café rond, chocolat noir, chocolat blanc, vanille, biscuit, poivron, piment. En bouche, un bonheur : très chocolaté, caramel, café très rond, piment juste ce qu’il faut pour relever sans arracher ou occulter le reste. Rien à dire : on a ce qu’on attend, tout est maîtrisé.

FraekkeFyr87 (249) - - APR 20, 2016
The aroma is full of coffee, chocolate, vanilla, caramel, cocoa nibs and tar. The color is pitch black. The taste is full of chocolate, coffee, cocoa nibs and chili peppers. I love the balance between the chili peppers and the chocolate and coffee notes. Westbrook take notice! This is art in beer brewing! Wow! What an amazing beer! Looking forward to taste more from this amazing brewery!

Aroma of chocolate, spicy peppers, and vanilla. Nice and clean flavor of chocolate with a prevalent but not distracting pepper taste. Full body.

Tognetta (621) - São Paulo, BRAZIL - APR 15, 2016
Negra avermelhada, bastante turva, espuma marrom de pouca formação e persistência, com muito esforço e agitação é possível criar um creme (fabricada em 03/2014). Aroma intenso de café recém colhido, álcool presente e facilmente perceptível, chocolate amargo. Notas mais doces e licor de chocolate com o aumento da temperatura, complexa. Paladar de médio/intenso dulçor, álcool bastante presente. Corpo licoroso, baixíssima carbonatação. Final alcoólico, doce, achocolatado, café em segundo plano, vanilla fica mais presente com o tempo, longa persistência do sabor. A ausência de carbonatação foi a decepção, teria mascarado o álcool e melhorado a percepção do paladar. Vale experimentar mais fresca.

elbernays (1112) - Dublin, IRELAND - APR 15, 2016
Bottle from Saveur beer. Pours oily black with little or no head. Vanilla, oak, wood, whiskey, chocolate nose. Flavour is treacle sweet with oak, tobacco, whiskey vanilla finish. Full bodied, full on flavour fantastic beer

varanid99 (894) - AUSTRALIA - APR 3, 2016
Black pour with a thin tan head. Massive, dark chocolate/cocoa aroma, coffee, vanilla, sweetish but not cloying aromas. Taste is smooth, mocha, almost milky, hides the alcohol well, caramel, almost milky flavours, with a little heat from the chilli at the end. Sweet, slightly roasty, coffee bitterness, thick, creamy mouthfeel. As it warms up the booze is marginally more noticeable but all of the other flavours come up a notch too. Holy shit.
