HALIFAX, NS – Propeller Brewing will be releasing the 2010 edition of their winter seasonal Revolution Russian Imperial Stout this coming Friday December 18th.
From the press release:
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 a whopping eight percent alcohol content, with a deep, rich, black colour. The taste of alcohol is well masked by the intense hop bitterness, extreme roasted malt and dark fruit notes.
Propeller Revolution will be available at the brewery’s retail store, as well as select private liquor stores in Halifax.
