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.

Black pour with good viscosity. Aromas of chili peppers and vanilla. Taste is quite good. Starts with a thick mouthfeel from a classic American impy stout taste. Nice hopping that accentuates the body. It has hints of vanilla in the middle of the taste but ends with a spicy pepper and hop finish. I like this much better than ccb huna

12 oz. bottle from Tasty Beverage Company, Raleigh, NC. Pours black with a short brown head. Coffee is obvious on the aroma at first but softens to allow the chocolate and chile peppers to come through. The taste starts with espresso, then fades to chocolate and vanilla bean, and finally the chile pepper shines through but does not seem to linger or get in the way of the other flavors. The finish is warm from the alcohol although I suppose the peppers add some extra heat. I have had other stouts that added peppers that I did not care for but this is done right. Exceptionally done.

Brentv (462) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 24, 2015
From bottle. Pours opaque black black with almost not head. Aroma of coffee and chocolate and peppers. Taste is a rich mix of chocolate and chili peppers, no burn, but the hint of it is there. Not overpowering. Medium mouthfeel with very light carbonation. Only a hint of bitterness on the finish. This is a delicious and complex beer.

TET (1992) - FINLAND - MAY 24, 2015
A black beer, a head is small and brown. Aroma has strong black coffee, some salt liquirice, cocoa and vanilla, hint of chili. Taste is rich and smooth. Coffee, cocoa, salt liquirice and dark chocolate, some vanilla, hint of characteristic chilis. Warming in the throat and cheeks. Full bodied, slippery, smooth and pleasant in the mouth, low carbonation. Vanilla and chilis can be noticed but they aren’t dominating, just as it should be. This is so good that the glass is empty too soon. Highly complex but also greatly balanced. Brilliant beer.

DalzAle (2003) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - MAY 23, 2015
Bottle. Rich dark black pour, nice small amount of carbonation and an aroma of dark chocolate and some spice. Flavor is also dark chocolate, good strong coffee and some nice mild pepper spice on the aftertaste. A little much at $12 a bottle, but worth picking up.

Kolsvart med litet brunt skum. Doftar och smakar massor med choklad, kaffe, vanilj och lite chili på slutet. Riktigt fyllig och bra!

Lawger (213) - SWEDEN - MAY 23, 2015
Pours black with one finger of pale khaki head. An aroma of mocca spreads out from the glass on pouring. Intense and creamy bouquet with milk chocolate, sweet vanilla and lots of black coffee. I get a lot less chili peppers on the nose in this compaired with the Pirate Bomb (funny because the only difference is supposed to be the rhum barrel ageing). Full bodied palate, creamy, big and quite delicious. Again less chili than in the Pirate Bomb. Long finish with notes of coffee with cream. Awesome stout as expected. It's only natural to compare this with the Pirate Bomb which might be even more expressive, but I think this comes across as more harmonious and integrated. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
