Fremont Brewing Bourbon Abominable Winter Ale

abominable11% ABV. Winter Strong Ale (2012) from the Fremont Brewing Company in Washington. I received this beer as a surprise gift from a beer aficionado. Pours a dark brown/almost-black appearance with a half inch off-white head that dissipates within the next minute. The nose picked up oaky vanilla, light undertones of licorice, figs, mild chocolate, and bourbon. The flavor packs a nice, smooth, but a wallop of bourbon heat and goodness along with some caramel, chocolate, chocolate malts. Medium to just pre-thick mouthfeel with a nice stickiness to it. Nice, smooth, and warming backfinish with some pleasant bourbon heat. I was sure glad this beer was classified as a winter warmer because this bit a piece of Hardywood GBS (and the bourbon version as well) from behind for the all-time winter beers I’ve had to date. A really nice job by Fremont Brewing!
