HALIFAX, NS – Garrison Brewing has announced the release of a new winter seasonal brand.
Wintervention Chocolate Imperial Stout is a 10.5% abv beer that the latest weekly news round-up on the Atlantic Canada Beer Blog describes as follows:
This is a big beer, brewed with lots of Maritime Pale Ale, Chocolate and Munich malt. Hopped exclusively with Millennium to 60 IBUs, the beer was conditioned for a month on cocoa nibs, giving “rich, bittersweet chocolate aromatics, with dark dried fruits and vanilla underneath”, according to the brewery.
Wintervention is available now in 650 ml bottles at the Garrison retail store and private liquor stores in Nova Scotia. A portion of the batch has also been set aside to age in Buffalo Trace bourbon barrels for a special future release.
