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!

JustDrinkIt (261) - Arizona, USA - FEB 12, 2014
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.

dfinney23 (2937) - Houston, Texas, USA - OCT 20, 2016
The only minor negative about this beer is the thin fizzy head that quickly disappears. Cocoa and more aroma. Taste starts coffee the a big burst of cocoa powder and the faintest bit of chile. Toasty, roasty darkness and other delights. Wonderfully oily, coating the mouth with lingering deliciousness.

Probably best beer I’ve ever tried. Full of chocolate, coffee, almost no alcohol in taste. Extremly complex. Pure awesomeness.

Dark brown opaque body, almost no head, almost no lacing. Lots of vanilla, some cocoa, caramel, coffee, rum barrel, coconut, and anise. Medium to full bodied, slick mouthfeel, muted carbonation, fairly sweet, not overly boozy for 14%, lingering finish with some heat.

McWorta (1530) - LUXEMBOURG - AUG 27, 2016
Black with a chocolatey head and good lacings. Aromas of roasted malts, bitter chocolate, coffee, vanilla, treacle, brown sugar cane, wood, toffee and a light spicey undertone develop. Softly carbonated, smooth and full bodied. Lightly chocolatey cocoanut-vanilla - treacle sweetness with a nice roasty bitter edge. Lasting finish, rather complex and highly enjoyable.

ibrubeer (306) - Omaha, USA - AUG 18, 2016
12 oz bottle @ Tapwerks. Aroma is slightly sweet, a little peppery. Black color, with minimal head. A huge spectrum of flavors, yet perfectly blended. Full bodied, ultra smooth mouthfeel. A delicious imperial stout!
