Bad Apple Brewhouse Releases First in Planned Series of Barrel-Aged Beers


SOMERSET, NSThe Atlantic Canada Beer Blog reports that Bad Apple Brewhouse has released a new limited edition barrel-aged beer, the first in what is planned to be a series of beers that spend some time on wood before being released.

Barrel-Aged Black & Tackle Russian Imperial Stout is a version of the brewery’s original Black & Tackle RIS that has spent several months in whiskey barrels sourced from Nova Scotia’s Glenora Distillery. The resulting 11.6% abv beer is described as having strong notes of vanilla and oak from the barrel, combining with the espresso and cocoa characteristics from the original liquid.

Barrel-Aged Black & Tackle is available now in 500 ml bottles at the four private liquor stores in Halifax and area – Bishop’s Cellar, Cristall Wine Merchants, Harvest Wines & Spirits, and Premier Wines & Spirits – marking the first time a Bad Apple beer has been available via these shops.
