Zlotta (2762) - Hagen, GERMANY - JAN 12, 2017
0.355 l bottle from Bierkompass, bottled in October 2014. Pitch black with a thin, frothy, quickly diminishing, brown layer. Sweetish, quite roasty-malty, a bit spicy aroma of dark chocolate, coffee, licorice, vanilla and a touch of rum. Very sweet, malty, moderately roasty and slightly spicy taste of dark chocolate, coffee, licorice, praline and vanilla as well as hints of rum and toasted coconut, followed by a very long, heavily roasty-bitter, quite peppery-spicy and hot finish. Full body, creamy to oily, almost syrupy mouthfeel, flat. Wow! Damn tasty, very intense but the flavours match very well, barrel-aging is nicely subtle, maybe just a bit too much of the chilis. Great beer!

stevoj (4554) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JAN 8, 2017
12oz bottle courtesy of Darrell. Black pour, small tan head. Robust heady RIS aromas; chocolate, roast malts, molasses, booze, wood, vanilla. Taste piles on with all of these, one flavor blending into the next, some coffee too. Damn tasty.

Adamsville (287) - Quebec, CANADA - DEC 31, 2016
Apparence : Noire, lger col brun sans relle rtention ni dentelle, carbonatation plutt faible.
Nez : On reconnat la signature Bomb! : chocolat noir qui sannonce sucr, ou peut-tre vanill, notes rties et de caf.
Got : Entre chocolate, assez sucre, pice des chilis (plus prsents que les autres versions que jai bues). Une touche de caf vient contrler ce sucre en deuxime vague pour laisser place une finale sur des notes grilles, boises et dalcool. Larrire-got est domin par le sucre et le chocolat, mais bien intgrs par le travail du fut. Intensit leve.
Sensation : Corps moyen, effervescence plutt faible, lger numbing de lalcool sur la langue dans une longue finale. Chaleur dalcool en poitrine.
Bref : Encore une fois, je suis charm par certaines qualits que je retrouve invariablement dans les Bomb! ou encore dans les Prairies en gnral : une intensit des saveurs couple un quilibre marquant entre celles-ci. Bien que dans cette version, le ct pic est plus prsent en entre que ce que je me rappelle des autres (ou est-ce lapport du fut de rhum?), tout comme lalcool, la signature chocolate de Prairie demeure la trame de fond. Besoin dune amlioration? Jaurais pris un peu plus de corps, notamment sachant (et ressentant) que cette bire titre 14% dalcool.

Bottle split with Scarlett, at the Porter with Linh and mom. Pours a deep black body with no head. Nose reveals intense barrel character and melted brownie. Mouthfeel is full bodied with notes of rich dark chocolate, wood, alcohol burn, light sharpie marker and soft spices.

beer_queue (134) - California, USA - DEC 27, 2016
2016 vintage, 15% ABV. Pours black/dark brown, not absolutely pitch black; some alcohol legs & spotty lace. Big rum aromas on the nose, some cacao, toffee, & coffee follows. Tastes like it smells with rum notes taking over the arrival. Middle is the dark roast coffee & chocolate truffle combo. Finishes with a lot of booze, soft spiciness, and sweet dark sugars (caramel syrup & dark fruits). Thin body and smooth texture; hot with booze but not astringent. Strong alcohol but doesnt taste anywhere near 15%.

tightslice (1156) - Redwood City, California, USA - DEC 20, 2016
Bottle from Whole Foods Market in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is fudgy chocolate, brownies, coconut. Taste is fudge and coconut. Very natural tasting and sweet but not cloying and dangerously drinkable. Booze is extremely well hidden. Need to try side-by-side with the original to compare the Rum contribution.
