Flavoured imperial stout by Prairie in Oklahoma, one of the many Bomb variants; from a bottle at Bar Beenhouwer, thanks Meeki Meekio! Thin and open, mocha-beige ring on a pitch black beer with only about one millimeter of hazy 'burgundiness' at the edges. Intense, alcohol-propelled, desserty bouquet: hot chocolate sauce, vanilla cream, cognac, hazelnut paste, fudge, dried red chili peppers, coffee liqueur and cappuccino, candied figs, espresso, cashew nuts, touch liquorish. Dense, sweet onset, candied dates and raisins, very thin umami edge, softish carb with very full, oily, rather viscous mouthfeel; deep toffeeish, pecan-nutty and chocolatey, multi-layered middle, cocoa nibs, vanilla beans and coffee all constructing one dense structure of intense and lovely bittersweetness highlighted by peppery notes and a warm, cognac-like afterglow with lingering roastiness and 'chocolateyness' as well as some retronasal vanilla. As intense as other Bombs, I actually had this one after the barrel aged version but they are each others equals in both force and beauty. I will be very happy if I'm given one of these on my birthday...
