Fremont Brewing Bourbon Barrel-Aged Dark Star

There's never a wrong time for a barrel-aged stout. But the more temperatures begin to dip, the idea of a rich, high alcohol beer is even more appealing. Bourbon Barrel-Aged Dark Star from Fremont Brewing in Seattle is one of the better BA stouts around, and still somehow manages to fly under the radar. This year's release is a blend of 18,12, and 8-month versions of their Imperial Oatmeal Stout aged in 12-year-old Kentucky bourbon barrels. It has an inky black appearance, is full-bodied with a touch of sweetness, with a smooth and warming finish at 14% ABV.

  • Schlafly Imperial Oktoberfest Beer

    It's tougher than it should be to find a good Oktoberfest beer made by an American brewery. Thankfully, choices like Schlafly Imperial Oktoberfest are available. The brewery ferments their Marzen for several months, just like the German brewers who created this seasonal style. They add plenty of Munich-sourced malts and German hops to the brew before it's bottled in these 750-ml bottles with a swing-top. It's malty, lightly sweet, and bold enough to share at 8% ABV.

  • Firestone Walker Mocha Merlin Stout

    Just in time for the fall season, Firestone Walker takes a legendary beer up a notch with the addition of coffee and cocoa nibs. Velvet Merlin is already one of the best oatmeal stouts in the country, and with the addition of Colombia La Granadilla blend coffee, it's ready to challenge java forward stouts as well. The milk stout version of the original Velvet Merlin recipe also sources cocoa nibs from Ghana to the brew rather than using processed chocolate. Available on draft and in 12oz cans throughout the fall and winter seasons.
