Reviewing Pirate Bomb! from Prairie Artisan Ales out of Krebs, Oklahoma.
2012 vintage bottle served in a Kuhnhenn snifter and enjoyed on 12/30/13. Review is from iPhone notes.
Appearance: Murky black-brown in color. Pours a finger of tan head that settles to a thin ring around the glass. Not much lacing or retention. 4/5
Smell: Rum, vanilla, cacao, and coffee grounds. No chili pepper. A little booze. 4.5/5
Taste: Tastes just like it smells, with a prominent vanilla-forward rum flavor. Delicious mix of rum, chocolate, and vanilla here. Maybe a hint of chili pepper towards the finish, but there is virtually no coffee or chili pepper flavor here. 4.5/5
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, light-plus carbonation. I wish this brew was a tad thicker with a touch less carbonation. Good balance, but sweet-leaning. Oily, slightly creamy mouthfeel. 3.5/5
Overall: A really nice beer that does not have as much nexus to the base beer as expected. The vanilla-y rum is done quite nicely.
Cost: $8 for a 12 oz bottle.

This beer hits first of sweet chocolate and coffee melded together wonderfully. It rounds out with vanilla and cocoa as the coffee and roasted notes linger throughout. Then an aggressive pop of spiciness hits the back of the throat. A strong, yet pleasing amount of spice.
A really thick and smooth body.
While the rum casks do not really come through, they must be an element that smooths the beer out with vanilla notes. Definitely one of the best stout variants around.
