COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Weve aged our flagship strong ale in Heaven Hill Bourbon barrels for the last several months, and the result is a complex and fiery brew. Youll get notes of chile, chocolate, cherry, vanilla, and whiskey in this behemoth of a beer. On draught for a very limited amount of time; available in 750 ml Champagne-style bottles until they sell out!

zoucrew102 (1677) - - JAN 31, 2017
Bomber, 2015 vintage. Chile pepper aroma with notes of chocolate, vanilla, bourbon and a touch of coconut. Pours cloudy caramel colored with a thin tan head that has a little bit of retention and excellent lacing. Starts with sweet chocolate flavor as well as notes of vanilla and a bit of coconut. Finishes smooth with bourbon and a little bit of chile heat that warms along with the booze. Excellent beer for winter!

IrishBoy (4165) - Bakersfield, California, USA - JAN 23, 2017
Bomber from Tavour given to me by my daughter. Nose is chocolate, bourbon, vanilla, and a hint of chipolte. Murky rusty orange with a medium, lightly lacing, beige head. Flavor is big vanilla, oak, light bourbon, and a very light capsaicin heat. Nicely done as far as I am concerned.

Beerdrinker79 (2156) - Idaho, USA - OCT 19, 2016
22 oz bottle- Pours hazy burnt orange with a medium light tan head. Aroma is bourbon, toffee, caramel, vanilla, sweet, it doesnt scream chilies or chocolate, although they are there. The taste is oak, vanilla, cocoa, bourbon, apples, maybe a hint of chilies. Body is medium to somewhat light actually, carbonation is soft, there needs to be more chilies in here, that is why i bought this. Its okay, one and done type.

slowrunner77 (11289) - Reno, Nevada, USA - JUN 25, 2016
Not seein this one as a 95th percentile brew. The flavors and especially the nose just didnt come together enough for that. A muddled caramel brown color. Nose is peppery, though the chocolate and bourbon eventually come in a little. Body is smooth. Flavor is light pepper, malt and caramel with more cocoa and barrel as it opens up. Good enough, but not nearly as exciting as it sounds.

marcus (9837) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAY 27, 2016
On tap at Capitol Beer & Tap Room. Pours medium brown with a thick tan head and a fruity aroma. There is a strange dark malt flavor that starts fruity and sweet, then gets bitter. Peppery alcohol finish.

Bottle to tulip Consummation: Malty bourbon with a bite. Adjunct: Lots of plum in the aroma plus bourbon, sour grapes, and a touch of yeast; fizzy and sour mouthfeel with an aspirated cloud of alcohol; some cherry, chocolate and chili in the taste.
