Now this is absolutely incredible - loads of chocolate, almonds, vanilla, coffee and cocoa in aroma with just a hint of chilli. Taste is almost just as good with chocolate pralines, almonds and vanilla coming in at first followed up by a tiny bit of spiciness from chilli. Incredible beer and one of the best that Ive had (top 3 for sure).

Bouteille à la maison. Robe noire et texture visqueuse, sans mousse et même presque menaçante. Dès la capsule sautée, je renifle de profondes arômes de chocolat noir pimenté émaner du goulot. Du verre par contre, émanent des arômes beaucoup plus complexes et raffinées. D’abord l’équilibre entre la barrique de whisky et les épices est fabuleux. Le chocolat demeure présent, mais celui-ci n’est plus l’élément central. Un amalgame intelligent et finement tissé de desserts sucrés et épicés. Je ressens une profonde chaleur m’envahir lorsque je m’envoie une lampée de cet intense liquide. Les épices, l’alcool de la barrique mais aussi l’alcool de fermentation. De la vanille, de la cannelle, du cacao pimenté, un wisky vieux et brun. Mouthfeel profond, texture riche, plaisir garanti.

Intense chocolate, cacao, barrel flavours, bourbon, but more on the dry side. Dark brown, small, frothy, beige head. Light bitter. More dry cacao, dark chocolate, rich and creamy texture, sweet dark fruits, prunes, blackberries, soft carbonation, full bodied. Very nice Impy, but I prefer the aroma of the non-BA version. Keg at MBCC Red Session, Copenhagen.

think I found nirvana. this has to be one of the best overall BA imperial stouts ever. deep roasted malts, chilis, cinnamon, vanilla, oak, bourbon, and coffee on the nose and the flavor is all that and some. truly deep flavors of all the scents on the nose. the chilies vanilla oak and bourbon are amazing.

Sample at MBCC 2017. Dark malty smell with chocolate and a roasted aroma. Similar taste with bourbon. More boozy then the regular Bomb, the original was better.
