SHELBURNE, NS – Boxing Rock Brewing has announced that the 6th annual edition of a winter seasonal favourite is now available for pre-order in advance of its release later this month.
U-889 Russian Imperial Stout (9% abv) is named after a German submarine that famously surrendered to the Royal Canadian Navy off the coast of Nova Scotia just after the end of World War 2. It’s described as follows:
A Russian Imperial Stout with Coffee and Vanilla. Dried dark fruits, chocolate, and mocha all make an appearance in the aroma of this beer. Take a sip and enjoy flavours of vanilla, espresso and rich malt character. Smooth, dark and rich, this beer is incredible paired with chocolate desserts of all kinds.
The 2018 vintage of U-889 will be released on November 30th, but can be pre-ordered now at a discounted price, with six 650 ml bottles available for $55 (regular $63), and 12 bottles for $100 (regular $126). Orders can be picked up at the original Boxing Rock location in Shelburne, or the recently opened off-shoot on Charles Street in Halifax.
