Beer pours a beautiful dark. The smell is chilli, chocolate, coffee, vanilla, and alcohol. The flavors are spot on with the smells. The mouth feel is slightly strong but this is a great beer. Overall a great beer.

Reviewed on 4/30/16, from notes

L - Pours oily black with no head.
S - I get lots of chocolate, coffee, and chili.
T - The flavors are a great blend of espresso, chili, some dark chocolate, and some vanilla. There is a nice roast flavor throughout.
F - There is a little more carbonation than normal. It has a dry finish.
O - This beer retains more of what bomb was as compared to BA Bomb. Nice rum barrel notes. Better balanced.

Black colour, small brown head that fades soon, creamy brown lace.
Aroma of chocolate, chili, coffee, dried fruits , vanilla, licorice.
Medium to full creamy silky texture, great carbonation.
Taste of chocolate, chili surfaces slowly, never being too strong, but leaving its flavour. Coffee, dried fruits, licorice. You can almost eat it. Exceptional

2017 bottle poured into a snifter. Opaque dark brown color with a minimal tan head. Smells like the regular Bomb! with lost of chili spice, coffee, and cocoa. Not much rum on the nose. This changed quickly on the first sip with smooth rum barrel up front followed by the base beer flavors. The rum made an appearance and then faded to make way for the coffee and chili flavor on the finish. Beautiful.
