Bourbon barrel aged Imperial Winter Ale with cinnamon and coconut

This year’s release of B-Bomb is aged in 8–12-year-old American Oak bourbon barrels and is a blend of 9, 12, and 24-month old barrel-aged Winter Ale. This special edition adds cinnamon and toasted coconut to complement the oak, cacao, leather, toffee, and dark coffee notes achieved from its 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 Cinnamon Coconut B-Bomb will age gracefully for years to come. Don’t Be Afraid To Be Abominable.

sampling a cellar temp 22 oz bottle of this beer and pouring into my snifter. Beer pours a dark stout / black coffee color and no light passes through my glass.
I do get a dense creamy beige head of 1 cm on the pour and this sticks around as a pretty solid and dense surface covering.

Aroma is dark chocolate, cinnamon, some woody root notes almost like ginger and a bit of toffee note too. Never any hop notes and the ABV is hidden here as well.
First sip reveals a medium body with very fine and tingly carbonation. texture is smooth and only a little bit of a coating on my palate with each sip.
Flavor is dark chocolate, toffee and brown sugar with a good bit of cinnamon. The cinnamon is earthy and rooty notes not fake and burny like Big Red gum.
Still no hops nor any ABV hints on this beer, which is probably dangerous. Im really enjoying the cinnamon playing with the toffee and dark chocolate, works very well together.
This is a tasty treat that I will savor for the rest of the evening. Very glad to try this one!

poured from a beautifully gold-waxed 22oz bomber into a perennial snifter. pours dark brown, kind of right in the middle of an imperial stout and a barleywine. bourbon, oak, leather, molasses, sweet coconut and light cinnamon on the nose. taste follows with the bourbon and cinnamon providing some spice but the coconut makes for a sweeter finish. not crazy, pastry stout sweet but it’s definitely there. thick, full mouthfeel. this works perfectly. the base is less sweet than an imperial stout or barleywine would tend to be and so the the coconut addition doesn’t drive it into overly sweet territory. the cinnamon and bourbon barrel also helps balance things out. really excellent b-bomb variant!

Dark syrupy pour with a large amount of foam risen.
Getting notes of burnt brown sugar, dark fruit, malts, bread, caramel, chocolate, cinnamon.
The taste follows with a very sweet burnt brown sugar/ burnt toasted coconut to lead with malts, dark fruit, cinnamon, chocolate, vanilla.
Feel is full bodied, thick, not quite syrupy but on the edge. The ABV sips around 11%.
Overall this was a great brew! Worth a try for the quality but the price point is a one and done for me.

4.29/5  rDev -4.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25
Look: Black with dark brown on the edges. Leaves no lacing.
Smell: Sweet vanilla, brown sugar, cinnamon, roasted malt that is dim in the background of the upfront sweetness.
Taste: Follows the nose with added bourbon. A TON of brown sugar/molasses up front that evolves into vanilla oak sweetness. There is a ton of really sweet cinnamon and this tastes a lot like The Bruery's Bakery. The end is a lot of alcoholic bourbon and cinnamon. The malt character is overpowered by the sweet notes.
Feel: Full and thick. You can tell it's a dark 13% beer which is great.

Overall: This is an expensive beer and it is not really worth it in my opinion. This is far too sweet for me, but I appreciate the barrel character and I think a sugary molasses kind of beer like this is better aged than not. Something to share with your friends on an occasion if it's accessible for you, but not something to seek out.

Pours oily pitch black with a finger of mocha foam reducing to a nice ring leaving sheets of lacing behind after each sip. Nose is cinnamon sticks, sweet vanilla, coconut, milk chocolate, bitter coffee, caramel and roasted malt. Taste follows suit perfectly with a sweet coconut and vanilla initial expression followed by a spicy cinnamon note and finishing melted milk chocolate. Not much barrel expression. Feel is silky, oily, and smooth. Excellent.

Bottle Date: 2021
Palate Contaminants: none

Dark brown. Not much light at the edges. A bit of fine head, but not much lacing.

Nose has lots of cinnamon and sweet, dark dried fruit. And it is amazing. The balance and intensity is virtually perfect. Start with Cinnamon Toast crunch, subtract the bread/malt, add raisins, and you're more or less there. Moderate-heavy sweetness holds everything together. I mentioned raisins, and dates are the other main dried fruit.

The taste brings up things that were present in the smell, but more in the background. Smoke and dark wood are up front, maybe it's toasty coconut. Sweetness is still moderate, but it has competition. Bitterness is light-moderate. I'd say it's honey-ish, but most of the dried fruits are dialed way back. Alcohol is present, but it's overwhelmed by everything else.

The aftertaste is pretty intense, with smoky molasses, as well as raisins, dates, and prunes. Like I mentioned, alcohol is definitely detectable, and it actually seems to increase in the aftertaste. Light-moderate carbonation, and it is fine, yet slightly prickly.

4.63/5  rDev +3.3%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.75
Appearance: dark brown with little but creamy dark beige foam.
Nose: toasted coconut, cinnamon, molasses, light tostaure, vanilla, wood and bourbon. Very pronounced and elegant mix.
Taste: coconut and cinnamon first and foremost then brown sugar, vanilla, delicate toasting, light coffee base, oak and persistent ethyl tone that embraces a good floral bitterness in the finish. Cocoa aftertaste.
Body: full, round and velvety with low and fine carbonation. A drink that begins very bite and is immediately dried by a generous ABV and a nice decisive hop without exaggerating.
All the elements are in play as if they were soloists but at the same time they are amalgamated in the service of a fabulous beer.

Black, thin between foam.

Cinnamon.

Coconut seems like it curbs cinnamon from getting into red hot territory. However they did the cinnamon is just about perfect. Strong note of milk chocolate is prominent, makes it seem more like a stout.

More notable bittering hop would keep this from being so pastry.
