  • 12 ounce bottle served into a tulip glass.

    Pours opaque. Thin dark tan foam cover, dissipating quickly. Surprisingly lacing exists but quickly recedes.

    Aroma is tremendous. Cinnamon is what I perceive first but I think that is from the combination of brewing ingredients. Cocoa is the strongest ingredient. Don't know if they use powder but it seems like you are able to smell the powder as well. Pepper comes next. Vanilla is in the background. Chocolate cocoa powder surprise.

    Taste is almost as complex as the aroma. More muddied though. Each ingredient isn't as clear as it was in the aroma.

    Big body with a fair amount of carbonation. Alcohol is well hidden.

    This is a really good beer. Great complexity. Surprisingly easy to drink. The aroma is better than the taste, yet the taste is solid. The muddiness of the taste takes away from the drinkability. More available than it was originally. Try to get a bottle or three. Enjoy!

Beer Notes
  • Bomb! is an imperial stout aged on espresso beans, chocolate, vanilla beans, and ancho chile peppers. All the flavors meld to create a truly unique beer. The peppers add just the right amount of heat to complement the intense coffee and chocolate flavors.
