Vanilla is subtle which for me is good, but I miss the chili heat. Bomb base is very present in both the scent and aftertaste. Small amount of cocoa still present. Vanilla does leave my tongue with a slight numbness after each sip for a minute or so.

Poured into a Lost Abbey long stemmed tulip. The standard dark brown body with a medium sized dark tan head which stuck around with moderate lacing. Smell was boozy chocolate with the vanilla becoming more prominent as it warmed up. Likewise the taste but even more so; when I first started it I thought maybe my palate isn’t very good for vanilla, but when it warmed the vanilla popped out. Feel is what you expect for a sipper like this.

The beer is still black, but there is at least the appearance of a head.
Aroma of vanilla, chocolate, and alcohol.
Mostly vanilla taste. Some chocolate. A little bit of bourbon.
Too much vanilla for me.

From Boxbeers. In Teku glass. Playing Avadon 3. Not as vanilla-forward as its name could suggest, but a great imperial stout with the abv really well hidden and pleasant chocolatey notes. Low on foam

12oz bottle poured into a snifter
A: Pitch black with a thin head that quickly settles
S: Cocoa, bourbon and a strong dose of vanilla
T: Matches the nose. The flavors complement each other nicely
M: Full-bodied, smooth, balanced
O: The vanilla in all of the Bomb! variations has been a nice component; it's even tastier when emphasized here

Pours an effervescent ebony with a sliver of tan head. Viscious, zero head retention & lacing

S: Vanilla, dark chocolate, figs once warm

T: A little smokeyness, char,dryness, carob, dryness, boozeyness; just a hint of coffee and peppers. Coffee & charred grain, just a little boozeyness & vanilla once warm, plenty of dryness. Finishes with charred, grain, a little woody hop presence & Baker's Chocolate & just a little vanilla

MF: Medium body, restrained carbonation, a little grainyness

Good, but not a good as the protype or some of its sexy spin-offs

12 oz bottle poured into a pint glass, a small sliver of head immediately turns into nothing, pitch black. The initial aroma is booze and vanilla, with some roasted chocolate. Some dark fruit and almond notes also come out after a few, when the booze aroma burns off (almost raspberry-esque). The taste is layered roasted chocolate and vanilla, dark fruits (plum/fig), and even some blueberry/raspberry notes? I have to be imagining those from the aroma, because I don't recall these from the base beer. The mouthfeel is dense, and there is a low, but present amount of carbonation. Overall, I found this to be a very tasty stout, though maybe a touch overly sweet, and it was interesting to try this without the other items present to see what the vanilla beans bring to the table when unencumbered (new multi-variable word used in a beer review, check). Looking forward to the coffee version sitting in the fridge, and hopefully finding the other two somewhere. If you mix all four,will it taste like regular Bomb?
