Aroma of coffee and cacao, roast, with some faint raisin rum character. Taste is vanilla and a short lasting burning sensation, fudge, chocolate and an earthy quality, the rum character is very faint and gives more so this oaky brown sugar side to the beer. This beer has literally zero alcohol taste, without drinking anything before, supersmooth with a very nice thick texture, only lacking a bit more taste.

Pours out pitch black with hardly any head. Coffee is the main aromatic note, followed by some chocolate/vanilla and a very mild touch of rum. Rum was more apparent when straight from the fridge. Really gets overwhelmed by everything else as it warms. Chocolate makes a stronger appearance in the flavor with the coffee making a showing. Again, rum is very subdued as it gets warmer. Chile warmth in the throat. Ashy bitterness. Mouthfeel is full with a barely there carbonation. Overall, this is good, but I'd like more rum barrel.

Tan head. Vicious black pour. Some lace.

Flavor profile: Heavy dark chocolate and cocoa. The vanilla is apparent. The peppers stand out much more in this beer than brimstone bomb. Roasted malts and coffee. The rum flavors are noticeable and very unique. A much different oaky flavor. Some spice flavors.

Full bodied and rich. The right amount of carbonation.

Very flavorful beer. One of my favorite of the bomb! series.

A little rusty on reviewing since the had function.

A: single finger head dissipates quickly although leaves a thin layer of tan froth on a jet black body

S: lots of peanut butter dominates the nose. Additional notes include vanilla, chocolate, dark malts. Hasn't warmed up enough yet but as it does the barrel aging is more evident. The chiles aren't really there. The aroma is great but not what was expected or as advertised.

T: so after a few sips the rum barrels are well represented. I hope though as I enjoyed this one it would balance out. This one is definitly complex. Early on the barrel is best but as it's enjoyed the chocolate, vanilla and dark malts appear briefly only to be eclipsed by the chile heat in the finish. Interestingly the chiles have more of a heat releasing role than that of the pepper itself. Nice although rapid transitions of flavor.

M: relatively thick and oily feel as expected. Very nice degree of carbonation. Just right

Overall: certainly complex and worth the hype. I feel some other chile barrel aged stouts are more desirable than this but don't miss a chance to try it if you are lucky enough to do so. I feel fortunate to have had that opportunity.
