VANCOUVER, BC – R&B Brewing has announced the release of a new limited edition beer that is well-suited for the approaching winter months.
Ursos Arctos Russian Imperial Stout is a 10.4% abv and 85 IBU strong stout that R&B head brewer Rod Hughes describes as follows:
We wanted to produce a full flavored Russian Imperial Stout with complexity in dark malt character that was well balanced. The beer was produced using a double mash technique. Complexity of dark flavours was enhanced by a 12 hour boil time and two months of conditioning time. We are extremely happy with how this beer tastes right now, and it will continue to develop with aging in the bottle.
Ursos Arctos will be available in a limited run of 650 ml wax-dipped bottles at the R&B retail store, and at select private liquor stores on the Lower Mainland. It will also be on draught at R&B Ale & Pizza House (54 East 4th Ave., Vancouver) and Devils Elbow Smoke & Ale House (562 Beatty St., Vancouver) while quantities last.
