Snowed in With Some Bomb!

christmasbomb

Christmas Bomb! is an imperial stout aged on espresso beans, chocolate, vanilla beans, and ancho chile peppers with winter spiced added. All the flavors meld to create a truly unique beer. The peppers add just the right amount of heat to compliment the intense coffee and chocolate flavors.

Final Rating: 4.59/5

look: 4.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a Prairie dino glass.

Pours a deep, inky black body with a 2 finger dark mocha head that reduces slowly to leave some lacing and retention.. very nice looking!

Big aromas of coffee, dark chocolate, dark fruits, roasty malt, and slightly spices.. very nice and inviting!

On the tongue it’s big, bold and flavorful, lots of milk chocolate, semisweet chocolate, dark roasty coffee, dark fruits, vanilla beans, with slight spices on the finish.. rich, creamy, low carbonation, and super balanced and actually very easy to drink. This is amazing!

Overall I was pleasantly suprised at how awesome this beer was, the reviews do not reflect my experience, this was one of the better stouts I’ve had. Super bold, rich, flavorful, and balanced. Would seek out again!
