TORONTO, ON – After several months of planning and a pre-release party last month, Great Lakes Brewery has announced the long-awaited release of 25th Anniversary Robust Porter, the first of four limited edition beers to be offered this year to mark the important milestone in GLB’s history.
The following tasting notes are provided by the brewery:
This porter is brewed with respect for its past but with some modern inspiration. The Robust Porter pours a luscious black with a thick mocha layer of protection that invites the drinker to the glass. The rich but gentle roast malt character and chocolate notes are picked up on both the aroma and the palate and are best expressed when the beer is not too cold.
Great Lakes 25th Anniversary Robust Porter is being released in a limited run of 2000 wax-dipped 750 ml bottles, retailing for $9.95 per bottle. It is available now at the Great Lakes retail store, and will be on shelves at 53 select LCBO outlets across the province later this week.
