Nearly black pour with lasting caramel colored head. Aroma is strong coffee, chocolate, ashy roast. Flavor caries the aroma as well as vanilla, alcohol, toffee, and some chili.

Rum, vanilla, cocoa, and coffee present on the aroma, and all follow onto the palate. Finishes with some heat from the chiles. The rum barrels impart a nice sweetness to the finish as well.

28/III/14 - 12Fl. Oz. bottle @ De Hopduvel (Gent) - BB: n/a (2014-314) Thanks to Bobochamp for sharing the bottle!

Clear dark brown beer, no head. Aroma: lots of coffee, mocha, burnt caramel, but mainly just coffee. MF: no carbon, full body. Taste: mocha, burnt caramel, bit sweet, little sour, metallic touch, bitte rhops. Aftertaste: coffee grit, some caramel, bitter hops, bit sweet, alcohol burn, more coffee. Could not detect the rum in this one. I guess the basic beer from which they start (the regular "Bomb!") is just too overpowering both in roastedness and in hop bitterness.

At big Sethís going away party on 11/2/2013; was an awesome day! Pours black with gray cream head. Aroma is smooth roasted malt, toasted smooth, beautiful soft rum and chocolate notes, that meld together in a perfect way. Taste is fuck yeah, beautiful roasted malt, soft complex toasted malt, a hint of rum barrel. The flavors blend together into a complex arrangement of fantastic malty and full flavored notes. Love this shit.

jsquire (3346) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - MAR 29, 2014
Dark beer with a short lived brown head that shrank to a lasting ring. Big nose of alcohol, chocolate and some pepper heat. Very creamy mouth feel. Chocolate, vanilla, sweetened coffee and a lasting simmering pepper heat in the finish. Lots of booze, but not nothing intrusive. It sure doesnít drink like 15%.

Bottle: The aroma consists of moderate-heavy chocolate, coffee, light molasses, and a touch of rum. It pours a dark brown with a touch of orange highlights around the edges of the glass. Itís has a minimal tan head that fades to a thin ring. The flavor starts with a moderate-heavy chocolate with a touch of molasses. The finish has light roasted coffee and a hint of rum. Itís medium-full bodied with soft carbonation and mouthfeel.

I'd like a little more carbonation, but otherwise an awesome stout in the vein of bcbs. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Aroma is chocolate, coffee, raisin, vanilla, caramel, and a touch of spice. Appearance is black with a light brown head. Good lacing. Taste is chocolate, coffee, vanilla, coconut, ripe fruits, caramel, and a hint of chile on the end. Full body with semi-low carbonation. Overall complex and just outstanding.

Salmoniform (269) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - FEB 25, 2014
Poured from bottle to glass. Dark black hue with fizzy brown head. Aroma is chocolate, cold pressed coffee, soy, cola, roasted malt, caramel, figs, ethanol. Mouthfeel is fantastic with a full body and high carbonation. Taste is sweet throughout but not overly cloying, slight astringentness and CO2 sharpness following balances the sweetness perfectly. Overall this is a fantastic chocolate bomb with a nice coffee essence to balance. A slight pepper burn in the back of my throat but not overwhelming at all. VERY nice!
