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!

Sigmund (6117) - Tau, NORWAY - MAY 10, 2015
On tap at Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. Pitch black colour, low tan head. Aroma first of fusel alcohols, then molasses, rum oak cask, vanilla, coconut, chocolate and roast malts. Rich and warming mouthfeel. Outstanding flavour, medium sweet and roasty, no sign of fusel, otherwise all the delicious notes from the aroma are repeated and strengthened here. Nice chili heat in the finish. Perfect!

maekchu (3044) - Hirakata, JAPAN - MAY 6, 2015
Bottle. Thanks to mike12da. Serious coffee and chocolate nose, rum, some light chile peppers, and fumes. Thick dark brown. Chocolate, very rich with hints of vanilla, chiles enter in mid palate, and the finish is a bit rough (though satisfying) with the chiles tickling the tongue and throat. Medium-heavy body. Creat blending of all flavors. They got the chile/burn level just right on this one.

daje (2834) - NORWAY - MAY 6, 2015
Fully black body with a minimal tanned head. Aroma of rum, cocoa, coconut, roast. Complex taste of vanilla, chili, dark malts, toffee, soft coffee bitterness, massive vanilla and choco aftertaste with just a tad heat from the chili. Close to perfection!

KyotoLefty (8492) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAY 5, 2015
Bottle. Huge nose or coffee, chocolate, caramel, raisins, milk, booze. Also vanilla and chili, which comes out more as it warms. Motor oil with lace. FLavors of cocoa, apples, vanilla, cherry, peppery chilis in the finish. Excellent.

Not bad but I think prairie bomb is still superior. I'm not a huge rum fan though

chimpgibbon (456) - London, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 28, 2015
Bottle at Cask P & K. 400th rating deserved a special one. Little heavy on the chilli at the and, but the rum character makes this for me. Super smooth also at this ABV. Big coffee in the middle, big vanilla, then the booze and chilli in the finale. Touch sweet but top gear.

tomekboniek (365) - Warsaw, POLAND - APR 27, 2015
Baczka. Barwa czarna, nieprzejrzysta. Piana beżowa, drobno pęcherzykowa, utrzymująca się do samego końca. Niesamowity, intensywny aromat wanilii, kawy, czekolady, palonych słodów przy mocno zmrożonym piwie. W smaku olbrzymia słodycz. Kakao, wanilia, rodzynki, orzechy. Istne bogactwo smaku. Trunek grzeje w przełyk, wyczuwalne gryzące przełyk papryczki ale dosłownie przez chwile. Wysoka goryczka, niezalegająca. Niesamowicie gęste, aksamitne a zaraz gładkie. Trunek doskonały o niesamowitym bukiecie i smaku. Do długiej degustacji.
