Wow, this is unreal smooth. Mild rum, not overwhelming at all. Great mouthfeel, light heat. Chocolate, thick, dark fruit. Just an amazing beer, worth every penny!

Very true to the original bomb but had its own style. Does not have the same bite of original Bomb. Very thin head but not affect taste. Boozy but smooth. Overall a verty smooth beer. This is a great beer to take your time with.

32oz growler poured into a snifter

A- pours jet black in color with a small foamy dark tan head that reduces to leave nothing behind

S- aroma opens up with fresh coffee, along with aromas of cinnamon, pepper skin & nutmeg. Dark chocolate fudge notes mix with the rum barrel to give notes of brown sugar, molasses, vanilla & oak

T- big burst of fresh coffee up front with the sweetness form the rum barrel immediately making a presence. Mid-palate brings notes of cinnamon poking through, along with more sweetness, brown sugar, black strap molasses. The finish brings just a touch of pepper heat, along with roasted malt and more molasses sweetness

M- medium body with moderate carbonation leads to a foamy mouthfeel that turns creamy into the finish, slightly warming alcohol on the linger

O- quite interesting how much sweetness is added by the rum barrel. At times the sweetness tends to overpower the adjunct ingredients. Alcohol is hidden pretty well for 14%

Black with little to no head. Definate chocolate, Coffee, vanilla, and peppers on the palate, and a weaker version on them on the nose. Rum is dominant on the palate as well as the nose. Great mouthfeel. As good as the regular Bomb, and better than the rest of the variants that I've had.
