12oz bottle, opened alongside the other Deconstructed bottles. Dark cola brown body, half finger white head, minimal retention and no lacing. Smell is vanilla bean, a bit of marshmallow, milk chocolate, a bit of roast and touch of espresso. Flavour follows, slightly more marshmallow shows through, although certainly not a massive amount. Balanced with roast, a bit of dark chocolate, milk chocolate. Minimal earthy bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium fuller bodied. Good carbonation. Mild but not overbearingly sweet here. Probably my second favorite deconstruction. Goes well blended with the Coffee.

I was sitting in my backyard, talking to my old dad, and drinking the Deconstructed Bomb, vanilla flavor. It is tasty and great for slow sipping. It is not really a hot weather beer but it is delicious.

Look: black with a thin mocca colored head

Aroma: roasted malts, chocolate, vanilla

Taste: The flavor is roasted malts, sweet chocolate, and vanilla and it is creamy. It's like having a dessert in the hot desert.

Feel: full body, creamy.

A: Poured into a snifter to a black beer topped by a finger and a half of dense tan head which fades slowly to a collar around the edge of the glass with minimal lacing
S: Smells of vanilla and chocolate with some roasted malts and coffee
T: Taste is very sweet and vanilla forward with dark chocolate, charred wood, coffee and roasted malts. Swallow is more vanilla, chocolate, light char, and coffee with some slight burnt sugar
M: This beer is thick and slightly velvety on the palate with soft carbonation that is adequate for the style. The abv and style also ensure that this beer has a drying finish.
O: Overall this is a really nice beer with some solid vanilla notes. Flavors are bright and balanced as well which keeps this one from becoming a vanilla bomb. Definitely worth a try if you're into the style.

Having had samples of a few of these, this one wasn't hard to figure out. The nose has vanilla covering up roasted malts and coffee and chocolate malts. But it's vanilla for sure.

The beer gives way to a bit of roast and malt but gets a huge helping of vanilla. Rich sweet and powerful vanilla.

This one brings a lot of nice smooth creamy body. It's nice.


It's too much vanilla for me, but if that's your thing this is wonderful.

This was a fun one in that the smell was not what was tasted. Smell was a vanilla.... wait for it... bomb. Sweet wafers and vanilla beans came to mind. The taste however was a malt bomb, with only slight hints of that aromatic vanilla. Go figure. Overall very drinkable, especially for the abv
