Thanks, Sach!

Big fan of Fremont’s barrel program. For my money, they’re right up there with the best of them when it comes to blending an incredibly smooth, complex but accessible big beer (stout, winter warmer, strong ale, etc.). This baby is an absolute treat.

The cinnamon and coffee are there in subtle notes that accentuate the malt and barrel flavors while adding a layer of nuanced complexity. Light holiday-spice kicks in on the back end and lingers on the palate. Coffee is present throughout but not overpowering, acidic or abrasive.

Highlight is the feel. So damn smooth it’s absurd. Velvety flavors of chocolate, oak, vanilla and flaked coconut coat the palate beautifully.

Love this one. Like a hearty beer and desert wrapped in one. FYI,Cinnamon makes me think of sweet but this is not.

I'm generally pretty sensitive to cinnamon, so I often find beers with it over the top and very cinnamon-dominant. The 2017 CC-Bomb is not quite in this category, although I do find it to be cinnamon-forward and lacking in the coffee. I also get a nice quantity of coconut. Pretty enjoyable, still, though my minority opinion is that I wish it was a bit less spiced.

Wow. In a word - decadent. A total dessert beer if I've ever had one. Can't get over the massive and overwhelming coconut flavor that I wasn't expecting however. Cinnamon up front, coconut on the finish. Coffee is pretty hard to find.

Unfortunately I generally dislike coconut in beers, and dislike it even more when there's no mention of it by the brewer.
