Pirate bomb is our beer Prairie Bomb! aged in rum casks. The flavor from the casks helps impart more vanilla and coconut flavors to the beer while helping to add more body and smoothness to the already explosive and expressive flavors of Bomb!

10.04.2015, 0,35l bottle @ home:
Small light brown creamy mediumlasting head. Aroma is slightly dry boozy, minerals, oak, dark rum, grass, espresso, dark malts, chili, chocolate, vanilla, dark sugar. Taste is mild and slightly dry, minerals, oak, dark rum, chili, espresso, grass, dark malts, chocolate, caramel, licorice, dark sugar. Medium bitterness, slightly dry mouthfeel. Nice one, but the regular one is way better. But it’s just as mild / balanced and easy drinking as the regular one.

I’m not a huge rum guy, but it definitely has it’s place. Fruity and boozy, mild run spice. A little more of the base Bomb is covered up than is ideal, but still - this is nothing but delicious. Smooth and warming. If they toned down the barrel influence a little it’d be otherworldly. Had with a Pirate Noir from a recent trade - and while I like both, this was significantly better.

From SF: Pours oily black color, clear, with tiny light brown foamy, unstable head. Visually low carbonation. Aroma: intense dark and roasted malts aroma, with notes of espresso coffee, cocoa nibs/powder, vanilla, cacao, coconut, milk and dark chocolate, vanilla, chilli peppers, oak, tobacco, rhum, inverted sugar/molasses, dark fruits... The same are flavors: very well, practically perfectly balanced: dominate malt flavors, eith notes of milk and dark chocolate, espresso coffee with sugar, cocoa powder/nibs, cacao, supported with vanilla, oak, rum, dried fruits, and chilli, which gentle steps forward in the end. Finish is sticky and slightly spicy. Body is full, texture is very soft, carbonation is low. What a Beer!!!

ippopotamo36 (1289) - Rome, ITALY - FEB 2, 2016
Bottle purchased at the Hoppy imp. in Greece, aged over a year and consumed in Kosovo. Pours burnt coffee bean (practically black with a dark brown highlight), no foam. Nose: totally coffee brandy, caffè borghetti, eggnog, a bit syrupy. Quite harmonious. Mouth: very soft carbo, some cherries, under spirit fruit, mocha, roasted (burnt) grains. The finish is a bit peppery and surprisingly dry (chili pepper rather than pepper). A very nice brew and I think aging made the difference.
