Propeller Revives Revolution Russian Imperial Stout

HALIFAX, NSPropeller Brewing has brought back popular winter seasonal Revolution Russian Imperial Stout for another year:

Propeller brews this unique ale true to its traditional roots; in the 18th century the English sent their brews via the Baltic Sea to the court of the Czars. To reduce the risk of spoilage Russian Imperial Stout was brewed to very high gravities and allowed to ferment on the long voyage. The result? A dark, strong and bracing brew. Propeller’s version weighs in at eight percent alcohol by volume and boasts a deep, opaque black color. It has tremendous body and mouth feel, with intense hop bitterness, roasted malt and dark fruit notes.

Revolution Russian Imperial Stout was released last week at the brewery’s Prop Shop retail outlet, and will be available starting this week at NSLC outlets throughout Nova Scotia. It will also be distributed once again in British Columbia, where it will be available via private liquor stores.

  1. Regarding the BC distribution thing — not quite sure what the local private stores in BC were up to last year then cause it was on shelves in quite a few places.

  2. Dave – my mistake, I misread the press release as saying it would be available in BC for the first time this year. I’ve corrected the post to indicate that this isn’t the case.
