Bottle share: Opaque almost no head, oily. Nice pepper but not overpowering, roast, chocolate, Leathery and a touch earthy. I like the Bomb more than this.

Bottle at Churchkey courtesy of me! Thanks. Bottle suggested by Eric. Seemed to fit in with the Ales from the Darkside theme at one of CK’s frequent events. Poured into 8 shot glasses and shared around. Color of 10W/40. Aroma of fruity burnt espresso. Taste is big woody, tannic burnt coffee with a subtle edge of pepper. Decent. Big.

12 oz. bottle, huge thanks to travlr for sharing! This is pretty serious stuff. Black pour, small dark beige head. Nose and flavor definitely have serious vanilla and booze rum character, but it works so well in tempering the aggressive adjunct notes of the base beer. The barrel seems to almost act as a membrane through which Bomb! refracts into a much more nuanced whole. The chili, coffee, and vanilla are still there, but less overwhelming. Lovely stuff.

solidfunk (4784) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - JAN 26, 2015
UPDATED: JAN 31, 2015 Very nice. I like rum and I like bomb so this is good for me. Pours black with good head and lacing. Some spiced twist here. Rum dark chocolate and espresso. Some wood. Bitter finish with some booze. Thick pour verging on syrupy but surprisingly unboozy tasting for style. Bottle at Churchkey thanks to Travlr.

Procent (246) - POLAND - JAN 22, 2015
W aromacie uderza bardzo mocna kawa, świeżo zmielone ziarna, bardzo intensywna, drugie w kolejności są papryczki chili nadające ostrości, w tle gdzieś lekka wanilia. Barwa czarna, nieprzejrzysta, piana znikoma. W smaku także kawa, niesamowicie intensywna, świeża, do tego mocniej niż w aromacie chili, ale jedynie podkreślające ostrość, smak, a nie narzucające się, jak np. w serii AB: z Brewdoga. W tle także paloność, wanilia, ogólnie słodycz. Piwo jest bardzo dobrze zbalansowane, goryczka średnia, dużo ciała, konsystencja jest gęsta, ziarnista, niczym gęste kakao. Odczucie w ustach to zdecydowanie najmocniejsza strona tej kompozycji. Dobre rzemiosło, ciekawe doświadczenie.

visionthing (3236) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 21, 2015
On tap at Schouskjelleren, Oslo. Pretty much black body, at least that’s what it looks like in the basement. Beige head. Lovely complex aroma with vanilla, roasted malt, cocoa and hints of coffee, toffee and more chocolate. Sweet and extremely flavourful with nice roasty notes, hints of wood snd vanilla and a certain chili sting in the end. Well balanced, smooth and simply delicious!
