From the brewer

This year’s release of B-bomb is aged in 12 & 15-year-old American Oak whiskey barrels and is a blend of 24 and 12-month old barrel strength Winter Ale. B-bomb achieves distinct bourbon, oak, cacao, leather, and dark coffee notes from its extended barrel aging and barrel blending. Each barrel contributes a different note, and combining each barrel to create a coherent tone is a distinct art and true pleasure. Please do enjoy this unique barrel-aged ale today but know that B-bomb will age gracefully for at least another 5 years. Don’t Be Afraid To Be Abominable.

A delight. Aged very well. Pulled in a more mellow bourbon flavor with hints of cinnamon and light fruit. Vintage from 2011.

A special beer for Emil's goodbye. Thanks Alex! Smoothed out with age, this was almost too cloyingly sweet. It was still good, but I really missed the bite.

Sweet bourbon smell. Taste starts sweet, switches to tangy bourbony cereal goodness, and finishes caramel molasses winter-warmer. Smoothly viscous but without being tacky.

Such a great smell--fine wood. Nice malt tackiness. Super pleasant wood finish.

Mmm. Just the right amount of wood - what a great finish. Not too thick, but still possesses a wonderful chocolate creaminess.
