COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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!

Flaska systembolaget. Svart kulör med jävligt minimalt ljusbrunt skum. Rostad doft med kaffe , mjölkchoklad och fat. Smaken bjuder pĺ en härlig blandning av vanilj, kakao och kaffe. I mun känns en härligt värmande alkoholtouch och i halsen känns en lätt hettande chilitouch. Tjock och fin i mun

There’s a lot going on in this one: chocolate, coffee, licorice, toffee and rum followed by a warming, growing chili heat. Smooth mouthfeel. Fascinating. Perhaps a little bit too much chili.

Bottle @ SB march 2015. Sweet vanilla & chocolate aroma. Pitch dark thick beer with a dark thick foam. Lots of roasted malt and chocolate and it ends with a little chili touch. Very nice stout, love the touch of chili in this one. Just fantastic!

Melker (234) - Varberg, SWEDEN - MAR 27, 2015
Bottle at home. Aroma of vanilla, cognac (I want to say rum tho), milk chocolate, coffee, really old apples, caramel. Medium bitterness and medium sweetness. Chilli is present when the beer is warmer. Nice texture, oily and thick. Pretty baked while drinking this, it?s friday.

Smooth as they come, like a fine wine. Creamy body shows very understated notes of rum cake from the barrel age. Body is dark as night, showing black fruit notes that weren’t evident in the regular Bomb, and this seems more textured and creamy as well, as it picks up similar chile spice notes underneath. Rich chocolate malt lingers long, spice is more understated and creamy as rum barrel flavors soften the 15% abv bite and add complexity.

Linnet (1229) - Karlstad, SWEDEN - MAR 24, 2015
Roasty, extremely rich, very salty, ashy, coffee, peppery, chocolate, ABV evident, acidic, vanilla, raisins. Black colour, no head. Very salty, not very sweet considering ABV, but still noticable, spicy peppery and lightly bitter. Considering ABV the mouthfeel is actually a bit thin, small, but a bit disturbingly sharp bubbles, peppery, salty and warming finish. Interesting, but not really my cup of Tea.

axl (145) - Lund, SWEDEN - MAR 23, 2015
355ml bottle. Pitch black with pretty much no head despite a rather aggressive pour. Aroma of chocolate, chili, coffee and hints of vanilla and rum. Taste dominated by milk chocolate and coffee with hints of vanilla followed by a nice chili bite and some oakiness. Light booziness from the high ammount of alcohol and rum barrels, warming mouthfeel. After a few mouthfulls the flavors really intermingle to create pure bliss. Very smooth and surprisingly light with medium carbonation.

Szemernyi habot sem fejleszt a kitöltés során, aromái azonban busás kárpótlást nyújtanak. Ehhez foghatóan mennyei kávéillatot talán még egy kávé esetében sem éreztem, a pörkölt kávébab és mesésen bársonyos vanília mennyekben köttetett házassága vakítóan káprázatos hatást eredményez. A paprikaőrlemény pikáns bukéja, a földes karakter komor jellege és a darált mák játékos megjelenése ha lehet, még izgalmasabbá teszi a kompozíciót, mely egészében véve akkor szól igazán nagyot, amikor az első kortyok a szánkhoz érnek. Olajos lenyomatú testének detonációja a legnemesebb imperial stoutok feszültséggel teli jegyeit repíti szét, kakaós-vaníliás, krémes hangulatok szurokfekete köpenye alatt ideális szénsavtartalmú keretben ízletes kávéfolyam kel útjára, melynek partjait perzslő és vibráló csípősség, pajkos alkoholosság szegélyezi. A rumos beütés ez esetben talán másodlagosnak mondható, a hordóérlelés jótékony hatása azonban minduntalan ott munkálkodik a parádés szerkezetben. Kevés ehhez foghatóan sokszínű és izgalmas főzettel volt dolgom az eddigiek során, imperial stout legyen a talpán, amely felveszi a versenyt ezzel a vadorzóval.

Basically, this is liquid dark chocolate. With chili. At 14%, it should probably be called "chocolate wine" rather than beer. Rum barrel influence is very delicate; maybe I’d taste a difference if I tried this against the non-barrel-aged version. Very tasty, I wish I could get my hands on more.
