Black color with tan head. Aroma has spicy coffee notes, dark chocolate and roasted malts. Taste follows, mostly roasty and coffee forward, quite bitter on the aftertaste, almost no sweetness overall. Almost full bodied with medium carbonation. Probably the best of the deconstructed variants.

From the Bomb deconstructed pack and my first one from the series
poured into a teku Jackie O's snifter from the 12 oz bottle. This beast
pours a rich coal black with a nice of tan foam that subsides to a thick ring,
thin light layer, and displays some nice lacing with each sip. Nose of coffee
and char with some bittersweet cocoa and touches of marshmallow cream.
Flavors exceed by presentation with rich coffee and char over a bed of dark
fruits and dark breaded malts with a touch of vanilla and marshmallow
cream wafting amongst woodsy earthy malts. Very nice mouth feel; full body,
rich, smooth, medium light carbonation, and an aggressive bitter malt
char note on the rear.

An excellent little bomb, but will agree with brother Bluejacket74, I like the
original bomb a bit better with it's balanced qualities even with the chili
notes in the original. Overall a SOLID brew from a great brewery!

Cheers and Happy New Year!

12 ounce bottle, can't read the stamp on the bottle but I'm sure this was a 2018 vintage bottle. Served in a snifter, the beer pours dark brown/black with almost an inch tan head that stayed around a little while. There's also a good amount of lacing. I like the aroma a lot, the brew smells mostly like coffee and roasted malt, along with some bittersweet chocolate and caramel. I think the taste is similar to the aroma but there's also some vanilla, dark bread and charred flavors noticeable too. Mouthfeel/body is medium/full, it's slick, smooth, a bit creamy and has a moderate amount of carbonation. I still like regular Bomb! more than this, but this is definitely my favorite of the 4 brews in the Deconstructed Bomb! series. Definitely worth picking up! Bought this as part of the Deconstructed Bomb! 4-pack.

Served in a snifter glass from the bottle.

Appearance: Thick deep almost black body with a heavy tinted dark tan head rising roughly three quarters of one finger's length. Drops to almost nothing after two to three sips.

Smell: Like the title, heavy coffee bean and warm brown sugar to go along with it.

Taste: Espresso, caramel and cream all in one shot. Its a touch sweet but well offset with snooth bitterness. The molasses aren't too overpowering and hits you just right.

Mouth: Sticky beer with semi thick body and medium carbonation. Feels a bit like fudge and coffe lingering in your mouth.

Overall: Good brew, definitely would like to get it again but I have only seen this for sale within the dour-pack. Well worth it and you shouldn't hesitate if it crosses your eyes. Salud!

We let these Deconstructed kegs sit for about 6 months before the tap takeover, looking forward to see how they’re tasting. Prairie Tap Takeover, Loosa Brews, Tuscaloosa, AL.

Pours deep and dark, almost black. Pretty viscous, but not much head to speak of. A small ring of tan foam sits on top.

Surprisingly, the nose on this gives me a lot of vanilla and chocolate, with only subtle roasty coffee. Sweet, with an almost iced coffee nose throughout.

Much more roast in the flavors, with a lot of coffee coming through right away. There’s definitely an off flavor coming through of garden soil. It comes through immediately then fades away just as quickly. The finish has that coffee returning, along with a dark chocolate sweetness. If not for that weird dirt flavor at the beginning, this is very good.

Smooth, creamy, warm. Subtle booze and a lingering stickiness. Great feel to this beer.

12 oz bottle poured into Central Waters snifter.

Deep black thick pour with a nice beige head of 1/2 finger. It sticks around and recedes a little bit but mainly stays frothy and full.

Aroma is mostly of roasted malts and peppery coffee, with slight chocolate and vanilla. Faint caramel.

Flavor has a lot of cacao nibs/chocolate, followed by peppery coffee and rubbing alcohol. Faint oak and floral vanilla. Boozy burn and cheesy chocolate remain the palate. Comes off as incomplete or a not-yet-tweaked homebrew recipe.

Feel is heavy, creamy, and very burning. Nice parch on the finish.

Overall, not a fan. Last of the D/C BOMBs for me, and I gotta say the Chili was the best.
