yngwie (14146) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 20, 2014
Bottle. A very dark brown beer, clear-looking and topped by a small, dense, light tan head. The aroma has some caramel sauce, some booze and chili and quite a lot of coffee, vanilla and cocoa. There’s dark sugar, caramel sauce, chili and coffee in the flavor, with vanilla and dark sugar. It’s full-bodied and warming with a soft and pleasant carbonation. Lasting finish with a tad too much booze. The sweetness of this beer goes well with the alcohol level and the chili. Sure a nice one, really, really nice. 141220

bhensonb (11531) - Woodland, California, USA - NOV 10, 2013
Bottle at Gallery II: Beauty From A Barrel. Pours very dark brown/black with little head. Aroma is like scotch bonnet coffee! My nose is now clear. Med body or better. Flavor is chili/coffee - tho not a lot of capsaicin - considering the aroma. There’s dark malt and maybe wood. Quite an experience.

Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured a black color with an average frothy brown head that lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy roasted chocolate, coffee, vanilla, hot spice, wood and alcohol aroma. Heavy dark sweet toasted dark chocolate malt flavor with a heavy dark sweet and small alcohol bite finish of long duration. Full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. This is a standout beer.

hopscotch (9556) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - NOV 2, 2014
Bottle... Pours pitch black with a fleeting, creamy, khaki head. The bouquet is of huge, rich, deep-roast coffee interwoven with fudge and vanilla. Full-bodied with nearly-expired carbonation. The flavor is a bold marriage of bitter, 85% cacao chocolate and hearty, Cuban-roast espresso. Finishes burnt, bitter and acrid. Bottle provided by biggsbowler!

adnielsen (9478) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - DEC 24, 2014
Bottle @ home. Christmas Eve 2014 with jcnielsen. Thanks to HeyKevin. Pours a black appearance with a thin brown head. Rich burnt chocolate, dark chocolate, vanilla in the nose with lots of roast. Thick mocha chocolate, light caramel, some spiciness, roasted coffee flavor with some vanilla near the finish. Similar to the newer batches of Bomb which just don’t seem as vibrant and have a stronger char element. Still pretty good.
