At the time of this review Prairie Artisan Ales Pirate Bomb has the Oklahoma craft beer chasers in an absolute frenzy. This stuff is like gold right now as it's a limited brew sold only in Oklahoma - thank you Prairie! After watching a dude take the last four bottles of Pirate Bomb at one store, I rushed across Stillwater, OK to Du Laney's Retail Liquor and nabbed 3 bottles of my own. AND...they were at a discount! Woot!

I poured Pirate Bomb into a Chimay chalice as I felt it was well-deserved being national stout day and all. The thing is black and thick like lawnmower oil at the end of a long hot summer. An aggressive pour renders a sticky single finger cap of mottled dark brown foam, some parts lighter and others very dense and dark.

This beer is one of those complex brews that batters your senses from every angle. The nose - espresso, dark baker's chocolate, rum, cherry cordials, and dark fruit and chili peppers simmering in alcohol. Some hints of vanilla cookie as well.

Flavor? This is Pirate BOMB! Definitely a flavor bomb! Allowing it to warm a bit it's all about the robust fresh grind coffee, dark chocolate, and rum. I get cherries, vanilla, and some bittering hops as well. The chilies are present but faint - flavor of ancho and no burn. There is a slight vinous presence as well as a chocolate mousse in the aftertaste. BIG.

Massive slick full body. The mild carbonation lends itself to the silky feel. Very sticky. Candy sticky. Big alcohol dryness as well. You can get pretty lit with just one.

I was down right lucky to score this elusive beer. I can't give it a 5 because the rum and coffee are a little over the top, but I do enjoy that combination. I have not had regular Bomb, but I would assume those who don't like rum would prefer it over Pirate. This is sure to be a highly traded beer. Good job Prairie!
