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!

Bottle. Thanks to Werckmeister. Black body nearly no tan head. Aroma is old grass, cocoa with ash and roasted malts but also some dried fruits and some liquorice. Taste is roasted malts with chocolate and also some herbs and coffee maybe also some liquorice. Aftertaste is roasted malts bitterness with also some malt sweetness in the background and some nice balanced hot chillies. Nice one.

Nutty aroma. Dark black. Lots of vanilla. Coconut abounds. Hints of coconut rum. Its like a Malibu Rum stout, in a good way. Very good actually. 13% Alcohol is hidden. Thx GreatDane1632 for helping me cross off this want!

355 ml bottle shared by Werckmeister at RB Tasting Linz thanks a lot!
Black body, with a small, dense, creamy, dark beige head.
Aroma of espresso, dry cocoa, wood, some liquorice, some spices.
Tastes of espresso, chili, dark chocolate, wood, some liquorice, dry cocoa.
Full, oily mouthfeel, with a soft carbonation.
Finishes hot from the chili, dry, roasty, with coffee, cocoa, liquorice.

Tasty. The nose is really lovely, while the taste has a bit too much hot chili for my liking. Would be amazing with less chili, because of the lovely espresso and dry dark malt notes. Overall not among my favourite Imperial Stouts, but unique and complex nonetheless.

UPDATED: JUL 12, 2015 Bottle @ Saturday night tasting - The Stein & Vine. Noire huile de moteur, col absent. Arôme superbe note épicée, rétro chocolaté. Léger vanille en rétro. Palais est chocolaté, malté, profond et épais au niveau du cacao, fini chocolaté, barrique, note de toffee avec une chaleur perçant en fin de bouche. Le tout reste ponctué par de belles notes de vanille. La chaleur est là mais reste plaisante.

12oz bottle in a taster at Plan Bee. Pours black with a beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, burnt coffee, light rum barrels and vanilla, and some spiciness, plus light notes of spice/dark fruits. Flavor the same with too much burnt coffee. Average texture. If all the coffee in Prairie’s beer tastes burnt, I feel bad for people who want good coffee in that area. Learn how to roast coffee then how to utilize it in beer.

Growler. Opaque black with a frothy tan head, rapidly diminishing. Big malt-forward aroma of roasted grain, char, coffee, chocolate, chili, smoke, alcohol, vanilla. The flavor is moderately to heavily sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes moderately sweet and moderately bitter. Medium to full body, velvety/syrupy texture, moderate carbonation. Hot alcohol and hot chili pepper make this hot, though not hot enough to be drain pour. Besides the heat, there is taste of coffee, vanilla and chocolate.

Obtenue depuis la réserve d’une cave parisienne, gentiment cédée pour le nouveau venu qui vient de loin ... C’est épais. C’est assez abracadabrant au niveau du chocolat qui fond littéralement sur le palais ! J’aurais sans doute aimé plus d’expressivité du piment; mais, en effet, c’est une bière qui scotche bien ... ! ... Une bière dessert, une bière récompense en quelque sorte. J’aurais sans doute plus apprécié le truc en plein hiver que sous cette petite canicule estivale ...

(Prairie Pirate Bomb!) Bottle 355 ml, no wax. Into a taster, ABV 14% Pitch black colout, tall and thik, dark brown head with great retention. Aroma has coffee, chocolate, red peppers, a little bit of spices, light vanilla. Taste also of vanilla, roasted malts, coffee, chocolate, red peppers and a little burn from them, well hidden alcohol for a 14% beer, brown sugar, subtle rum. Thick body with soft carbonation, creamy and smooth on the palate. Great beer, very complex and yet balanced.
