2016 Vintage Edition 1st Anniversary Special Release
From around the 18th century, breweries reserved the term 'Imperial' for only their finest beers - the best of these were exported to Russia and over time became known as 'Russian Imperial Stouts'. And so we introduce to you, our 2016 Vintage, 1st Anniversary Ale - The 'Frost' Russian Imperial Stout.
Named after local shipbuilding identity George Frost, this beer is rich, dark and complex. The combination of base and specialty malts delivers a brew that is black as night, robust and full bodied. With heady aromas of dark malts and a sweet alcohol spirit in the background, early tasting is showing roasted malt and dark fruit flavours which have been balanced by 60 IBU’s of bittering hops. Bottle conditioned, this commemorative small batch brew can be enjoyed fresh, or cellared to allow the yeast to continue the development of flavours.
STOCKS: Strictly Limited Release - Only a handful remain!
9.3% ABV / 36 SRM / 60 IBU
Only 400 bottles of this special anniversary brew have been made available! Each bottle is individually numbered and wax sealed for cellaring.
