Texas pours that rich dark color. Has no head. Smells of chocolate molasses with a hint of coffee. Reminds me of a Baltic Porter without the dirty dishwater flavor. Tastes like chocolate and molasses but with a thinner mouthfeel. It lacks the heat from the peppers but overall smooth and delicious. Bottled 10/02/2020.

L: Pours black as night with no real head at all.
S: Smells rich of sweet toasted malts, cocoa, coffee, dark chocolate, hot sauce.
T: Follows the nose, the chili pepper flavoring is surprisingly not overbearing.
F: Full-bodied, light carbonation, warming...
O: Just not a fan of the chili pepper, overall though, it's great.

4.43/5  rDev +6%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Appearance: Very dark brown in color, with small, quite dense, and persistent tan head. An unbroken and slightly irregular circlet adorns the glass wall. Eventually, the head collapses to a ring about the glass wall and a scattering of foam on the surface.

Aroma: Dark caramel, molasses and an abundance of bitter chocolate dominate the aroma, with ginger, licorice, cinnamon and cloves. Wood, sweet alcohol and vanilla are also prominent.

Taste: Opens with a wave of molasses and bitter cocoa, soon followed by sweet and warming bourbon-like alcohol. Mild coffee notes present a pleasing undercurrent, balancing the overall sweetness. Interestingly enough, the chili peppers are quite subtle, presenting only a hint of heat, although this likely enhances the flavor more than I realize. I am made to think of an imperial chocolate stout with a slightly more aggressive presence. The taste draws to a luxuriant close with ample bitter chocolate, bourbon, coffee, cinnamon and wood. The bourbon notes linger on, very pleasingly, well past the end of the taste.

Mouth feel: Very smooth and soft, with the fullness of whole milk, perhaps even a bit syrupy and just a hint of carbonation.

Drinkability/notes: Very well done, a nice counterpart to Christmas Bomb! We Texans should feel gratitude to Prairie for this exclusive to Texas offering. I wonder if Oklahoma BAs dart across the Red River in search of this gem?

Presentation: Packaged in a stubby twelve-ounce brown glass bottle with a pry-off crown, served in a Prairie Brewing tulip. Bottled on 10-19-2020. 03/16/2021. Cheers LJH!

I find it amazing (and baffling) that Prairie would tease the Texas market with this beer, only to release it in some jerk-off holiday 4-pack with their typical gazillion dollar price tag.

The beer is fine. Taste is only slightly different than regular Bomb!

Thankfully, I found a bottle shop that was willing to break-up the holiday 4-pack and sell all the contents individually.

12oz bottled 10-1-20, opened 2-6-21.
1/2" tan head, limited retention and settles in as a cap then a ring.
Black with zero visibility. No lacing.
Coffee with cream, vanilla is subtle and milk chocolate comes on late.
There's a strange "old" grain note as it warms...not appealing but luckily it doesn't carry through to the flavor.
Chocolate, subtle coffee notes, tasty vanilla, some boozy heat and also chili heat late.
Seems thinner than it should be, potentially medium + for a Imperial Stout? Subtle carbonation and a smooth mouthfeel.

I haven’t bought a Prairie beer in a hot min due to their ridiculous pricing, however I snagged this one due to the cool bottle.

Same Bomb thickness I remember from the OG. Maybe a bit more chocolate on the taste on this variant. Good,beer, just not something I choose to visit often and certainly not something I would continuously buy at this price point.

Overall, fuck Prairie.

Well it is international stout day today so I decided to do a side by side comparison of the BOMB! and the new TEXAS BOMB! Both are Imperial Stouts aged with Coffee, Cacao Nibs, Vanilla Beans, and chilli peppers, but the TEXAS BOMB! uses Texas coffee, ABV 11.20% and the BOMB! is ABV 13.00%. The flavor is mild roasted malts, chocolate, some coffee and perhaps vanilla and peppers. None of them are particularly boozy but the BOMB! has a little bit more of that as well as a bit more coffee flavor, whilst the TEXAS BOMB! has more of a sweet chocolate flavor. The taste is pretty similar but I prefer the BOMB! as it is less sweet. I tend to like my stouts less sweet. They both have a nice chocolate and coffee aroma, the TEXAS BOMB! has more chocolate in the aroma. They are both full bodied and creamy. They are both great.

Look: black with a thick mocca colored head

Aroma: roasted malts, chocolate, coffee

Flavor: mild roasted malts, chocolate, some coffee and perhaps vanilla and peppers.

Body/Overall: full body, nice, great beer for slow sipping
