I'd like a little more carbonation, but otherwise an awesome stout in the vein of bcbs.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
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!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle shared by tom10101, thanks a lot Tommy! Pours a nice dark brown with a small "milk chocolate" head that leaves good lacing. Nose is of green coffee beans, alcohol, chiles and smoke. Taste is sweet but not cloying with dark chocolate, coffee , peppers and spicy flavors. The peppers are well integrated and add a fine touch to the drink. Body is full, mouthfeel really smooth with a medium level of carbonation. Can’t say I really felt the rum but it was really, really good.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
12-oz. bottle. Heavy green chile aroma with peppercorn, light cocoa, and boozy rum. Pours clean moderate brown. Much more spicy taste than the regular Bomb!, with medium-heat chiles accompanied by an vegetal tone. earthy coffee, and dark chocolate. Different but good, however I greatly prefer the standard Bomb! over this one.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
pours very dark brown with a small creamy beige head, good retention and lacing. roasted and chocolatey malts, chocolate syrup, coffee grinds - vegetal touch, although not too disturbing, warming alcohol, maple, vanilla, woodsiness, shy chiles. moderate to low carbonation, medium body - oily, silky, sticky and almost cloying, relatively short coffee and woodsy-grassy finish. a pleasant surprise - chiles actually adding a fun yet shy sensation. very good stuff.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle for rating #5900:   Pours black, thin to moderate foamy beige head, spotty lacing.   Big roasty nose, sweet, big time barrel aging, coffee, charred wood, and rum round it out.   Smells pretty tasty!   Strong sweet roastiness on the tongue, along with notes of rum, some vanilla and dark chocolate.   Pretty damn delicious!   Not a real heavy stout, body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Finishes with a big sweet roastiness, sweetened coffee, some vanilla and dark chocolate, as well as a bit of rum.   Also seems a bit woody too.   Hard to believe this one is 15%.   Smooth, flavorful, and way too easy to drink.   Great stuff!
