Coconut B-BombCoconut B-Bomb
Notes: This year’s release of B-Bomb is aged in 12-year-old American Oak bourbon barrels and is a blend of 9, 12, and 24-month old barrel strength Winter Ale. This special edition adds toasted coconut to complement the bourbon, oak, cacao, and leather notes achieved from B-Bomb’s extended barrel aging and barrel blending. Each barrel contributes a different note, and combining each barrel to create a coherent tone is a distinct art and true pleasure. Please do enjoy this unique barrel-aged ale today but know that Coconut Edition B-Bomb will age gracefully for years to come. Don’t Be Afraid To Be Abominable.

Schiuma cremosa e bel colore beige, corpo ebano con riflessi amaranto. Profumo di caffè e cioccolato, tosature di malto e cocco, vaniglia, caramello, prugna e ciliegia, lieve tabacco e bourbon. Ingresso goloso con melassa, frutta secca disidratata, cocco e vaniglia e accenno di liquirizia, successivamente le note delle tostature ed una delicata amaricatura assieme alla componente etilica placano la dolcezza. Finale dove il cocco timidamente si riaffaccia accompagnato da un rubusto ed elegante abbraccio di bourbon. Corpo medio pieno molto vellutato con bassa carbonade.

A: The beer is jet black in color. It poured with a quarter finger high dense dark tan head that left a wide collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of chocolate and vanilla-like oak are present in the nose along with notes of toasted coconut.
T: The taste has lots of flavors of bourbon and associated vanilla along with notes of chocolate and toasted coconut. The alcohol is very well hidden from the taste.
M: It feels full-bodied and very smooth on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation. The alcohol lends some warming to the finish.
O: This beer does a very good job at blending the flavors together as no one flavor overpowers the others. It is also rather drinkable considering its strength.

2017 & 2018 batches were as good as advertised.

Not a stout, but close to that with complexity .

Not coconut suntan lotion, but just enough balance.

Certainly they are best fresh, not +1 year aged.

2019 vintage
Amazing stuff.
Very dark brown with a one finger beige head quickly fading away.
Coconut is very nicely present alongside the barrel notes of vanilla and reinforcing the notes of coconuts.
It's about toffee and cocoa.
Overall it's very balanced.
The mouthfeel is not thin but not too thick either, preventing this to be a cloying beverage.
A wonderful brew
