ST. THOMAS, ON – Railway City Brewing has announced details of the next release in its Barrel Reserve series of limited edition barrel-aged beers.
Bourbon Coffee Stout is a 5.9% abv and 28 IBU stout infused with Yellow Catuai coffee from local coffee roasters Las Chicas Del Café, as well as dark caramel, and then aged in bourbon barrels for two and a half months. The resulting beer is described as follows:
The Bourbon Coffee Stout appears dark brown to black with a roasted hazelnut halo topped with a frothy mocha head. Rich and complex notes emanate from the glass including dark Belgian chocolate, fresh espresso, oak, bourbon and maraschino cherries. Oak immediately greets the palate before revealing a velvety blend of dark chocolate and espresso falling to a dry dark cherry finish. Similar to its flavour, the mouthfeel begins medium to full bodied before gently descending into a pleasantly tannic dryness derived from the oak barrels.
Bourbon Coffee Stout will be released tomorrow (Saturday May 27th) at 11:00 AM in the Railway City retail store in downtown St. Thomas. The limited run of 650 ml bottles will be selling for $8.95 each, with no purchase limit.
