BURLINGTON, ON – Nickel Brook Brewing has announced the release of a second annual edition of Old Kentucky Bastard, a barrel-aged Imperial Stout that will be available at the LCBO for the first time this year.
Old Kentucky Bastard is a variation of Nickel Brook’s Bolshevik Bastard Imperial Stout that has been aged in Kentucky bourbon barrels for more than a year. The resulting beer is described as follows:
The rich chocolate, coffee and dark fruit flavours from our Imperial Stout are married together with the vanilla, oak and warming alcohol from bourbon barrels. Together as one,the result is an incredible blend of aroma and taste. Drink it today, or cellar it to enjoy later as it matures.
Old Kentucky Bastard is available now at the Nickel Brook retail store in Burlington, and will be released soon at select LCBO outlets.
