12 Fl. Oz. bottle
Served in a snifter

This beer pours black and is topped with a fleeting head.

I get dark chocolate and coffee aroma.

The flavor is dark chocolate, anise, and hints of coffee in the aftertaste.

Full bodied with a smooth mouthfeel

The coffee faded. This is not exactly a fresh bottle. I liked the vanilla the best of the bunch.

I had the deconstructed bomb chili flavor and was not impressed because it didn’t have enough spiciness. I am also not particularly impressed with the coffee flavor in this one. Pours dark brown. Smells of date, cherry, molasses, alcohol. Tastes sweet like cherry and chocolate and just a tinge of coffee towards the tail end of the aftertaste. Not enough coffee for my tastes. I prefer something stronger like peche mortel. Mouthfeel is medium thick. Overall not a bad beer it’s just not as flavorful as advertised.

Poured from a bottle - like the others ,dark as night with minimal milk chocolate head leaving a ring of bubbles and scant lacing.Nose is muted dark roasty malt and espresso . Taste follows more or less with a bit of a step up on the espresso flavor. Finish is smooth, almost creamy with a bit of woody aftertaste. Mighty fine.

Pours pitch black with a 2 finger thick foamy tan head that faded in average time and left minimal spotty lacing. Smells of burnt coffee, dark chocolate, cocoa and smoked malt. Very basic for a BOMB! variant but still a fine smelling imperial stout with rich malty complexities.

Tastes like it smell with burnt coffee grinds, dark chocolate, cocoa powder, roasted malts, chili peppers, earthy tones like peat moss and faint charred wood. The coffee is very strong and really tasty, with hints of vanilla and piney hops as it fades very dry. I didn’t think there were peppers used in this brew, but it seems that way. The chocolate dynamics work well with the burnt coffee and trail like bittersweet chocolate and a touch of booze heat. A real treat for a coffee lover, this was very enjoyable overall.

12 ounce bottle pours an ink black with minimal head & lacing.

Smell dominated by coffee, with some faint chocolate coming through.

Taste is predominantly coffee (as expected). Nice chocolatey malt taste is there. Straight forward beer with minimal complexity.

Nicely carbed but a little thin.

Overall a solid, easy drinker.

12oz bottle. No dating information found.
Black colored body, with a red mahogany back lit edge. Firm tan colored head. Leaves behind some patterns of small lacing spots.
Aroma of sweetened coffee and chocolate malts.
Taste is strong with coffee, with a sweetness throughout. Good base of chocolate malts, with a spiciness similar to cinnamon.
Medium thick mouth feel, with some smoothness. Has a detectable alcohol burn. Good carbonation.
Lacking in complexity, this beer shows its strong coffee component. Good enough.

L: Dark espresso brown to black. With a barely a head fading instantly to a some bubbles on the glass and no lacing.

S: Most apparent is a smell of wet stone, followed by cold brew coffee, a little roasted malt and cocoa.

T: The coffee is just okay. There is a sweet burnt sugar quality as well. Otherwise similar to the standard BOMB!

F: Thinner than the traditional BOMB!, that said I've never aged those this long. Carbonation is nice.

O: Not a bad beer, but I'd stick to BOMB! or the BA version.

L: Poured from a crowler to a pint glass. Had a coal black color and a thick, opaque consistency. There was a half inch of foamy / fizzy, tan-colored head that quickly dissipated. Sparse lacing.

S: A very nice aroma of coffee, roasted malt, chocolate, and molasses.

T: Tasted of a good amount of roasted malt (subtle, but present throughout), some mild molasses notes (not a big factor), a ton of coffee (obviously), and bit of chocolate as well. This is a big, robust, and forceful flavor. The coffee is incredibly strong, but the other elements support it well. It's not overly complex, but it still works.

F: A good amount of carbonation with a silky smooth finish. Full-bodied.

O: If you like coffee stouts, check this beer out. Drinkable.

A 12 fl. oz. bottle with no clear bottled on or best before date. Poured into a snifter glass.

Appearance: Dark dark brown in colour with a thin mocha brown head that dissipates quickly and leaves only sparse spotty to no lacing.

Aroma: Roasted malts, chocolate, coffee and light nuttiness.

Taste: Roasty malts, roasted coffee, sweet chocolate and toffee with a hint of bitterness on the finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium to full bodied with soft carbonation.

Overall: A nice Imperial Stout, but I prefer the original Bomb! more. Having said that, this was the best of the Deconstructed lineup.

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.
