Looks like the other variants - no surprise. Not much aroma. Faint roasty malt and faint chocolate. Not much pepper. The taste was better, with smooth milk chocolate, roasty malt, and faint char. The pepper appears fairly late in the palate with mild fruity notes and a subtle heat on the finish. Not as hot as I expected.

Look: Pours pitch black, with motor oil like viscosity. Barely a fingers worth of head, but with nice ring retention. Pleasant amounts of residual lacing.
Smell: Huge roasted malt and chocolate aromas. In fact, that is just about all I get on the nose. Slight hints of dates and figs, with slight nuttiness like pecan and walnut. As it warms, chili spice becomes slightly more pronounced, especially when I really get a big whiff on it. Chocolate/malts dominate the smell.
Taste: Chocolate and roasted malts are the superstars of the flavor. Notes of coffee, butterscotch, toffee and caramel also present in the background. Not so much chili pepper flavor, but more the heat feeling from the peppers, like pore-opening if that makes sense. Aftertaste is chocolate and malt, with smoked nuts. Slight dark fruit sweetness. Chili becomes less shy as it warms, and really balances out well. I am thoroughly enjoying this.
Feel: Medium in body and weight. Low carbonation with a nice sticky property which coats the entire palate.
Overall: This is really enjoyable. As I drink it, I get more "hot" from the peppers, but it is super smooth and likable. I thought vanilla was going to be my favorite, since I am partial to vanilla in stouts, but I prefer this one. I am very grateful to have tried. Cheers!

Poured into a DFH tulip. Smaller than expected brown head over a dark brown body. Smell has a pepper heat component over a boozy creamy malty aroma, very pleasant. I don't know if my palate was scalded last night by the cayenne onslaught of Ballast Point's Indra Kundira but this doesn't have the back of the throat bite that was distinctive in the full Bomb! But it still has a very pleasant pepper taste on top of the delicious base stout.

I was expecting to not enjoy this compared to the coffee variant but you can call me a fan. Can't wait for the vanilla and chocolate.

Almost unfair to drink it right after the excellent coffee spiked "B", but this base stout is so delicious, the drop off is minimal. Doesn't retain the creamy foam as well, and I really miss the coffee but I love the subtle heat of the chilies on the finish and the mild ancho flavor the chilies add to the start. The stout has a beautiful lush creaminess even without the film of bubbles the coffee version provided. I'm officially a Prairie fan.

Prairie Deconstructed Bomb Chili Peppers edition, 11.8% ABV. Pours black with a one finger brown head on an aggressive pour. Nose is chocolate, chili peppers and slight vanilla. Taste is predominantly chocolate and chili peppers, with a bit of a lingering burn. This essentially seems like regular bomb, with the chili peppers cranked up. They may have cranked up the chocolate too. Decent mouthfeel, overall outstanding. Surprisingly, this is better than the chocolate or coffee variants.

Bottle from the Deconstructed 4 pack. No heat from the Chili Peppers but the main flavor of the Bomb base stout is there. Decent, but without the heat its not worth the cost. IMO.

12oz bottle. Served alongside the other 3 Deconstructed bottles. Same colour- dark cola brown body, half finger offwhite head. Smell is astringent cocoa and pepperiness, milk chocolate, a bit of fudge. The base beer is the main thing I smell here, with the pepper adding a bit of unpleasantness (at least for me). Flavour follows; milk chocolate, touch of fudge, cocoa, light espresso and a fair bit of green peppery flavour and a mild peppery burn. Mouthfeel is medium lighter bodied, a bit thin, good carbonation. Easily my least favourite of the four Deconstructeds. This one I opted not to blend with the others because of its thin body and peppery spice.

Couldn’t find a bottled date. Poured into highball glass (best available). 12oz bottle. Bought from AJ’s market in Soquel CA. Drank in Michigan!

Pour: was splitting with friends so hard to say as pouts were small. But, dark brown, some head, lacing that lasted.

Nose: Not real pungent or in your face. Very subtle chilli.

Taste: great stout flavor with slight chilli burn on backend. Actually, surprisingly slight chilli relative to the constructed Bomb.

Mouthfeel: one of the better I’ve had or at least the best in recent memory. Rich, creamy, smooth. coats your tongue, oily, etc. Moderate carbonation that provides the beautiful head but still creamy. Like drinking a milkshake.

Overall: this beer is really good. Maybe a notch below constructed bomb and deconstructed over cocoa nibs but really good.

I drank the Deconstructed Bomb the chili peppers kind while grilling. It is tasty and great for slow sipping. It does not have a lot of Chili Pepper flavor, but I am not too much into pepper in my beer anyway. I thought it was pretty good, like the Bomb, but perhaps a bit sweeter.

Look: black with an inch mocca colored creamy head

Aroma: roasted malts, chocolate, maybe some pepper

Taste: It's roasted malts, sweet chocolate, perhaps some vanilla. There's not much of the chili, but I can taste it.

Feel: full body, creamy.

A: The beer is jet black in color. It poured with a half finger high dense tan head that died down but consistently left a short head covering the surface.
S: Moderate aromas of dark chocolate malts are present in the nose along with notes of chili peppers.
T: The taste follows the smell and has lots of flavors of chocolate malts with notes of chili peppers and hints of roasted malts. The chili is mostly in the finish and is more of a pepper-like flavor than something that is very spicy.
M: It feels full-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation with some heat in the finish from the chili peppers.
O: This stout drinks remarkably well for a beer that is 13% abv as just about all traces of alcohol are hidden from the taste. I liked how the chili peppers were noticeable in the taste, but in no way too strong or overpowering, which kept this quite drinkable.
