A winter warmer? The base beer, which is really pretty similar, is called an American Strong... I’d call them both really big, nicely crafted barleywines. But of course none of that really matters at all, the bottom line is that this is a very fine beer. It’s quite pretty, with a very coffee tone that includes a robust crema head. The aroma is subtle but rich, dominated by caramel malts and cinnamon. The taste certainly does offer a warming-in-winter feeling, with comfort food notes of biscuity malts, spice and boozy coffee. It does lack a bit in the necessary balance of all these enjoyable flavors, which is a task best left to a couple more years in the bottle.

On tap at Imperial on Alberta for their Fremont event.

A very dark brown with a dark brown head with good retention and lacing, this looks solid. On the nose, this has coffee, cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla, bourbon, mild oak char, and heavily toasted oak. Coffee character is similar to Dark Star w/Coffee with medium roast, chocolate, coffee, mild berry notes. Excellent creamy palate with alcohol well-integrated on the finish. Excellent.

One of the most balanced coffee beers out there, as well as one of the most creative, balanced use of cinnamon. Fremont is the leader in how to best utilize barrels, and this beer epitomizes this. So lucky to live in the NW. It is worth the hype if you can get it.
