A Note on This Beer
Behold — the #2 Imperial Oatmeal Stout in the World!
After slumbering for nearly two years in their cellar, the legends at Fremont are re-releasing this massive 13.1% ABV behemoth. And today, you have a chance to snag one of the last bottles of the 2017 vintage in existence.
With earth-shattering scores of 4.42 on Untappd and 4.51 on Tavour, today’s Bourbon Barrel Aged Dark Star: Coffee Edition 2017 casts a dark and decadent shadow over the craft world.
This is the kind of elite Stout you could trade for almost any beer. It’s a piece of Dark Beer treasure that you only share with friends that have truly earned the experience.
Because from coast-to-coast, Fremont is respected — perhaps even feared a little — for their ability to seamlessly layer spiced, caramelly bourbon and sultry charred malts on top of a boozy, silky smooth profile.
In fact, it’s part of what earned them shoutouts from Forbes to Thrillist and the New York Times; a cabinet of medals from GABF, World Beer Cup, and North American Beer Awards; and a spot as one of Paste Magazine’s Top 3 Breweries of the Decade.
Oh, and you might want to consider canceling your plans once this beast of a brew lands on your doorstep.
Because once you dive into Dark Star’s rivers of chocolate ganache and oaky vanilla that swirl around waves of whiskey spice and freshly pulled espresso, you’re not gonna be able to stop until the bottle is dry.
