Tan head. Black color. Bottle.

This is a straight up pepper bomb in a good way. Fresh jalapeño spice. Cocoa/chocolate and cinnamon. Spicy. Not as thick and syrupy as the calvados cake. Really solid and enjoyable. Nice barrel flavor. Lots of oak and bourbon.

This one pours a fairly dark black, with a small head, and not much lacing.

This smells pretty exceptionally peppery on the nose, with oak, high quality dark chocolate, nuts, coconut, maple, and vanilla.

I definitely wish there was a bit more maple, as this is definitely more peppery than I expected. It's not even spicy, so to say- it's just actually peppery in the a vegetable way. Alongside the pepper juice, you get some nice barrel-ish coconut, lots of dark chocolate, a bit of oaken spice, light bourbon

The apple brandy version of this beer is much, much better- but this is definitely not a beer I'd knock out of bed. It's quite peppery, but not actually that spicy. I with there was more maple syrup or vanilla, as they seem more faint than the apple brandy version. This is surprising, as the apple brandy version stil had those vibrant flavors even two years after release, and this current version is very fresh. I feel like I'm railing against this- and that's not fair- it's definitely taste. There's a killer chocolate malt flavor, and some nice spicy deep oak character coming through. I just definitely expect more out of this brewery for this sort of thing. It's still one of the better BA stouts you could have, just not the best.

This is medium bodied, fairly creamy, with a normal level of carbonation for the style.

This is quite tasty, but not to most upper of tiers when it comes to Voodoo's barrel program.

Bomber into a tulip appears black in color with a brown head that retains a finger tall.

Aroma is a little green at first then opens up with pepper and oak. It gets citrusy as it breathes with chocolate and roast.

Taste is bourbon, earthen and peppery upfront with a light citrus appeal before getting a spicy chili heat to the finish. The citrus chili flavor is quite upfront as it warms along with very mild barrel flavors.

Medium to lighter in body with moderate carbonation. Despite not drinking these recent gnvp releases all together, they all are unique with varying nuance.
