A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away . . .
The craft Jedis at Fremont Brewing developed three masterful brews with tastes so powerful, they’re coveted by craft fiends all across the galaxy. Known by the codename BBADS, Bourbon Barrel Aged Dark Star is an epic collection of Bourbon Oatmeal Stouts that Darth Vader would have given up the Death Star for.
Why would an evil villain surrender his galactic superweapon? Because the powers of the dark side are no match for BA’s Top 5 Rated Oatmeal Stouts in the World! Fremont is one of the top-rated Dark Beer makers in the country, which means the force is strong with this one.
And, we’re granting you access to all three chapters in their carefully cellared 2018 BBADS trilogy, just in time for the holidays! You can drink them side-by-side while sailing through space on a wintery night, or give them as a gift to your favorite droid or Stout fan.
If I were to find this bundle under the tree come Christmas morning, I’d probably plant a big ‘ole wet kiss on the person who gave it to me, before cracking open the first of this delectable collection!
Here’s the breakdown on this bourbon barrel-aged saga:
2018 BBADS: This 13.6% ABV Oatmeal Stout is a blend of 24, 18, 12, and 8-month old vintages of BBADS, aged in Kentucky Bourbon Barrels. It’s a thick, roasted chocolate sipper complemented by swirls of oaky vanilla, wrapped in the gentle embrace of caramel bourbon warmth.
2018 BBADS Coffee: A robust coffee and bourbon-laced tiramisu cake sequel, with the same avalanche of flavors as the original. Smoky molasses and creamy coconut strike back, wrapped in a velvety body and a surprisingly semi-dry finish.
2018 BBADS Spice Wars: Get ready for the return of layers of oaky bourbon deliciousness, amped up with cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, ginger, vanilla, and clove. Roasted and chocolate malts, smooth oats, and warm, inviting gingerbread spices blend together for a taste so smooth, the 13.6% ABV is almost undetectable.
How’s that for simplifying your holiday shopping? As for me, I’ll be grabbing a bundle for each of the Stout-loving rebels on my list. But, even trilogies this epic must come to an end. The last time we offered a BBADS bundle, it disappeared at light speed! So, grab some quickly, you should.
Coffee BBADS is the #3 Rated Oatmeal Stout on BeerAdvocate; the 2018 vintage is rated 4.4 on Untappd!
Original BBADS is #4 on BeerAdvocate; the 2018 vintage is rated 4.4 on Untappd!
Spice Wars BBADS is #5 on BeerAdvocate; the 2018 vintage is rated 4.32 on Untappd!
*We’ve done our best to procure as many bottles as Fremont was willing to part with, but we apologize in advance for not being able to accommodate everyone! Check back for upcoming holiday treats, though we can’t promise they’ll be as merry as today’s bundle!
