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!

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.

toxichop (597) - South Gate, California, USA - JUN 16, 2016
Pours black with a nice lacing for a head. Smell of rum, vanilla, coffee, chocolate. Really sweet smell but it is not a mess. Nice chili presence as well. Taste is really good. Noticeable chili heat, then comes in the vanilla and cacao. A bit of licorice, with almost no coffee at all. Mouthfeel is thick and syrupy. Very little carbonation. It ends warm with chili heat. Overall really nice BA stout. Alcohol is hidden very well.

Bottle at home. It’s jet black and with essentially no head, and man does it smell delicious as soon as the cap’s popped. There’s a little bit of chili, a good amount of coffee, and a ton of chocolate and rum. The flavor is like a fudge brownie dipped in a cup of buttered rum, with some vanilla and oak taste from the barrels to round everything out.

Koelschtrinker (16252) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 5, 2016
Voluminös malziger Antrunk, mild holzige Rumnoten im Hintergrund. Milde Rauchigkeit, steigende Süße, die aber immer angenehm bleibt. Immer wieder sind scharfe Noten vorhanden, die wohl vom Alkohol kommen aber eher pfeffrig schmecken. Erstaunlich süffig, mittellanger Nachhall, Noten von Kaffee und erneut Rum. 9/13/11/12/13/12

pfc514 (119) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - MAY 19, 2016
Pours black with a thin, bubbly pale brown head. Aromas of chocolate, vanilla and some faint rum. Very smooth flavor that runs from chocolate to faint chile heat at the end. Very balanced and slightly boozy, but not in a bad way, especially for 14%. A very very good beer.

Pirate Bomb! has all the complexity and tastiness of Bomb! but with some added Caribbean goodness thanks to the rum barrel aging. The process has enhanced the elements of vanilla, coconut, and chili which were already present in this beer. The latter works wonderfully with the dark chocolate malt flavors. There’s a hint of rum in the form of toasted sugar, and there’s plenty of booze warmth and sweetness. This is a black beer worthy of its black sails.

Bottle. A- Chilies, chocolate fudge, coconut, vanilla, brownies. A- Black color, black liquid, brown head. T- Chilies, fudge, espresso, coconut, vanilla, rum, P- Full body, average texture, average carbonation, complex finish. O- Yum. The rum barrel aging did some nice things for this beer. The chilies seem to stand out more and the cocoa gives off a more fudge like taste. Surprisingly not boozy. Maybe the best of the Bomb! variants. Tasty as hell.
