ST. THOMAS, ON – Railway City Brewing has announced the upcoming release of the latest in its Barrel Reserve series of limited edition barrel-aged beers.
Vanilla Bourbon Barrel-Aged Stout is a 6% abv and 33 IBU stout with the following description:
Indulge in this drop dead gorgeous deep ruby/mahogany coloured brew with a small but lasting off-white head. To the nose, scents of charred oak, vanilla, and bourbon are on the forefront as notes of dark fruits such as black cherry and plum, maple syrup, cinnamon, and gooseberries follow. To taste, smooth coffee flavours, dark chocolate, and burnt oak dominate the palate, then fall away to reveal a vanilla and subtle nut flavour. This is a medium bodied brew as a result of the bourbon barrel fermentation. It has a clean yet lingering tannin-like profile as it leaves a dry finish.
Vanilla Bourbon Barrel-Aged Stout will be released on Saturday March 18th at 11:00 AM in the Railway City retail store in downtown St. Thomas. The release is limited to 200 bomber (650 ml) bottles selling for $8.95 each, with no purchase limit.
