Bottle from the Pig (and on draft also.) The pour is deep black with slight mocha head. Oily. Aroma is chiles, dark chocolate, chipotle, cinnamon, vanilla, cocoa nibs, and rum barrel. The taste is at first the chipotle and chocolate and then morphs into the rich vanilla and graham cracker crust. FInish is some booze with the rum barrel. Super thick mouth and body. Absolutely delicious!

beczka, Czeska Baszta. NIewysoka ale mila, cziemno kakaowa i zostajaca obraczka do konca. brudzaca nieco szklo piana. Samo piwo praktycznie czarne, ewidentnie geste przy nalewaniu - moze gdziestam przeswitywalo czy cus, ale kto by tam patrzyl... bo od razu bez przyblizania nosa czuc intensywny aromat, bardzo fajny, klasyczny - sliwki (i pewnie inne ciemne owoce tez) w czekoladzie, kakao, kawa, palonosc lekka, faktyczne slad wanilii... piekny aromat. SMak rowniez ma to wszystko - tyle, ze nieco w innych proporcjach - palonosc wychodzi bardziej do przodu, wanilia sie chowa, reszta zostaje na swoich miejscach :) kwaskowte (mikrozarzut: az za bardzo), slodkawe, goryczka prawie niewyczuwalna, alkohol jako rozgrzewanie gardla, chilli czuc jedynie w posmakach, i cale szczescie. w posmakach tez pojawia sie jakas taka drewniana nuta. piwo nisko wysycone, oleiste, kremowe, gladkie, lepkie... i pewnie iles innych przymiotnikow ;) odczucie w ustach przy przelykaniu megafajne. piwo klasa. wlasciwie to: Klasa. :)

Wow.. Czarne nie przejrzyste. Piana drobnopecherzykowa szybko opada. W aromacie czekoladki z rumem(!) oraz lekka kawa. W smaku wspomniana wczesniej czekolada z rumem, papryczki, alkohol lekko rozgrzawa prze?yk. ?wietne piwo!

2014 bottle. Aroma - rum barrel, vanilla, chile. Appearance - motor oil, small to no head. Taste-Vanilla, coffee, rum, slight drying chile heat. Palate-Thick, viscous, lingering. Overall- An excellent beer, one of my favorites, the faint chile heat lasts until your next sip. It doesn’t take long to want another sip.

12 oz. bottle shared by Chris S. Thanks again, Chris! Pours an opaque midnight brown with a finger of dark tan that leaves some spots of lace in the glass and settles into a film. The aroma has notes of chocolate, vanilla, roast, pepper, dust, oak, coffee, and a little earthy spice. The flavor brings more of the rum sweetness and booze, which helps round this out; vanilla, caramel, raisin, oak, coffee, chiles, and cacao. Medium-bodied, with medium carbonation and a dry, roasty, spicy mouthfeel. Nice improvement on the regular Bomb. I’m just not sold on the universal praise for this series, though.

stoutnick (665) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - FEB 20, 2015
Black oil like pour, no head. Aroma is pepper from chillies, rum and raisin. Taste is strong peppery quality up front, big dark chocolate , bitter coffee. Almost no barrel, very dry finish. As it warms the barrel looms out more and more. Overall, the chillies dominate a little too much here; needs more balance especially with some more pronounced barrel character.

On tap at the Hoppy Pub, Thessaloniki. Pours black with a creamy light brown head. Looks great and delicious. Aroma of cocoa, chocolate, some coffee and vanilla. Mouthfeel is silky with full body and low carbonation, liquorice.Taste if chocolate, vanilla, coffee, rum and some gentle burn in the throat from the chilli. No words ...An amazing beer !!!
