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.

Wow, it turns out I had a nearly identical experience with this one to GT2, down to exactly matching scores...nose has a pleasant earthy coffee character but also a bit of a bell pepper note. Taste is this but even moreso, really really earthy, tastes like the coffee flavor has been aging for a while and left behind a sort of unpleasant character, there are nice things here but also a difficult beer to get through even a 4oz pour of. I wouldn’t say this is a great stout, but it might just be a case of bottle variance rather than an inherently flawed beer. Will have to try again.

libertine (307) - rochester hills, Michigan, USA - NOV 26, 2015
Pours black with very thin brown head. Aroma is Heavy on the coffee. When I opened the bottle it reminded me of a pot of coffee that was left on the burner too long. Notes of vanilla, chocolate, and chilis. Flavor is coffee with notes of vanilla and chocolate. Getting the heat from the chilis right away. The chilis really compliment this beer. Medium/full bodied with a spicy bitter finish. Really good.

jercraigs (9070) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 24, 2015
2015-11-12. Black body with a decent sized tan head. 3+ Aroma has a load of dry roasty coffee character with slightly odd but pleasant cocoa and dark fruit undertones. Vaguely smokey, or is that in my imagination? 7+ Flavour is intense on first sip. Big sweet dark malt base, notes of cocoa, moderate hot pepper character. Hints at cinnamon? Smooth average plus to medium bodied palate, soft carbonation. 3++ Well done but not really to my own tastes. I think I would prefer it without the peppers but at the same time, it might be less interesting without them. 7/3/7/4/14-15 Bottle from Sherbrooke Liquor, Edmonton.

Poured into glass. Dark with minimal head. You get a huge chocolate taste with a nice finish from the peppers. Excellent brew.

cobaink2 (228) - seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 20, 2015
Pours inky black into a tulip glass almost no head. i do not like the vegetable overtones of this with this chiles, however others seem to love it. it is quite muted and blended. I must lay one down and see what happens later on.

Skinnyviking (8073) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 19, 2015
Draught at the courtesy of Rune. No head. Pitch black body. Hard roated malt coffee cocoa caramel aroma. Roasted malt dominated by coffee and choccoalate but with the addition of caramel a bit of vanilla and ending with a suitable amount of cwarming chili. Little hops bitterness, low carbonation, long sweet finish. Alcohol nicely hidden.

Draught, thanks to Inbreak for the recommendation. Bare naked surface. Jet black body. Fragile lacing. Coffee and black malty nose. Rich and warming flavours of coffee grounds and black chocolate. Prolonged ending with a delicate touch of chili. Full bodied. Delicious (Black Sensation at Mikkeller Bar Viktoriagade, Copenhagen 12.11.2015).
