A Note on This Beer
The Rusty Nail is back, folks!
Did your heart flutter at that? Did your taste buds go abuzz? If so, then you certainly know how special this annual release from Fremont Brewing is — that’s why every single vintage we’ve had on Tavour scored higher than 4.50! Heck, last year’s release nabbed a 4.82, which is practically unheard of!
If you’re sitting there wondering what the heck makes this brew such a standout, here’s the rundown:
- The Rusty Nail is an epic Oatmeal Stout made with brewer’s licorice, smoked barley, and cassia cinnamon bark. And, it spent 15 months in 12-year-old Bourbon Barrels!
- Every sip of this beast swells on the palate with layers of dark cocoa and spice, atop a finely-tuned whiskey profile. This year’s vintage clocks 12.3% ABV, though rich aromas of molasses, cinnamon, and vanilla cloak it well.
- Last but certainly not least, The Rusty Nail holds a PERFECT 100 SCORE on BeerAdvocate! That’s their official “World Class” rating, and it means it’s among the best of the best — literally, The Rusty Nail is the #2 Oatmeal Stout on the planet!
Obviously, a sip of this stuff is a must for any diehard craft fan, and many seek it out annually as a treasured addition to their cellar. Will The Rusty Nail 2021 be your year?
*Good luck trying to find this one in your local bottleshop! It’s so limited, Fremont Brewing is restricting it to two bottles per household out of their Seattle taproom.
