Black Friday Is B-Bomb Friday At Fremont Brewing – UPDATED


It’s the most wonderful time of the year at Fremont Brewing Company.  After a successful Bourbon Barrel Aged Dark Star release on October 1st and their launch in Oregon State just 2 days ago, Fremont is ready to release their 2015 Vintage Bourbon Barrel Aged Abominable Ale – more commonly known as B-Bomb.

This rich, intense, caramelly, fruity, bourbony, vanilla-ish stout is one of my annual favorites and, now that I think about it, one of my very favorite bourbon barrel aged beers period.  In fact, my own personal craft cellar has a rather high preponderance of B-Bomb (and Darkstar) bottles in different varieties.  Last year’s Coffee Cinnamon B-Bomb variant was one of my absolute favorites.  I covet the few bottles I have left and save them for special occasions.


Here is some more information about this year’s Vintage from Fremont Brewing Company:

Description: This year’s release of B-Bomb is aged in 12 and 15 year-old American Oak whiskey barrels and is a blend of 24 and 12-month old barrel strength Abominable 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.

Down & Dirty: 2-Row Pale, Chocolate, Roast, Carafe, Munich, and Dark Crystal malts with Columbus, Willamette, and Golding hops.

Color: Deep black
Aroma: Vanilla, wood, caramel
Flavor: Cocoa, bourbon, dried fruit
ABV: 14%

IBU: 65

Bottle Limit: 6

Bottles of 2015 B-Bomb will go on sale on Friday, November 27th when Fremont Brewing opens their doors at 11 AM.  Then, at 5 PM, there will be an official release party with different B-Bomb infusions available on tap.  Fremont hasn’t yet shared what specific infusions will be available, but if I find out I’ll let you know.  Also, rumor has it that the Yeti will be making an appearance once again.  I’ll see you at the launch.

UPDATE 11/25:

Drink responsibly and stay safe out there.
