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!

Incredibly heavy coffee and dark chocolate aroma and flavor. Easy to drink and no traces of alcohol in the flavor or fragrance. A little vanilla beers still in a very good way. This beer really has a perfect balance of what I think is the perfect imperial stout. Perfect bitterness that fills the mouth forever. I series uses the very ideal but this is a perfect beer under me. The second time I hand out maximum points for a beer. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

Holmen1 (3403) - Stavanger, NORWAY - MAY 26, 2015
Kveldens nest siste på M2 Cardinal mai-15, fra fad: svart som natten, og med lavt beige skum. Med sine 13% merker jeg med behag alkostyrken i aromaen, den er godt blandet med rom, kokos, sjoklolade, vanilje og mørkrøstet malt. Vidunderlig munnfølelse, dette er flytende konfekt uten å bli for søt eller klebrig. Varmende chili i avslutningen setter prikken over i’en. Så godt at det er rett før tårene spretter.

Tasted from bottle. Pours black with tan head. Great lacing. Chocolate and coffee aroma. Taste is big time chocolate. Some coffee and a little caramel but mostly dark chocolate on the flavor. Very smooth and well balanced. Mild bitterness and mild to moderate sweetness. Hides the high ABV incredibly well. Excellent imperial stout. One of my favorites. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Xenocyd (1) - Wroclaw, POLAND - MAY 21, 2015 does not count
From tap @ ZUP on 20.05.2015. Pours nicely, with brown head. Dark brown, almost black, clear. Aroma first chocolate, and roasted malts. After that some chilli and vanilla flavors. Taste makes clear that it was aged in rum casks - lightly sweet, smooth, much vanilla flavor, some warming alco. Overall a very good imperial stout, definitely worth trying if you can get it.
