Things are about to get dark at the GLB retail store this Friday as we welcome back two returning favourites and introduce you to a new behemoth of a beer.
At 12pm, Harry Porter, Harry Porter & the Bourbon Soaked Vanilla Bean and our 30th Anniversary Russian Imperial Stout (with Cold Brewed Coffee, Vanilla and Cocoa) will all hit the GLB retail fridges.
To complement the release of these three dark beers on black Friday the retail store staff will be offering complimentary samples, chocolate brownies and an assortment of blue cheese to customers throughout the day, beginning at 12pm. (while supplies last).
Our latest 30th anniversary beer, aged in various bourbon barrels for approximately 9 months and weighs in at 11.9% and 70 IBUs, will be sold exclusively here at the brewery over the weekend before it makes its way to select LCBO stores across the province early next week.
The 650ml gold leafed bottles will retail for $15.50 and are limited in quantity.
The pour of this complex Bourbon Barrel-Aged Russian Imperial Stout looks slick and oily as it enters the glass, black as midnight. A dense mocha head sits gracefully atop the liquid offering a stunning visual. Whether your glass is right in front of you or across the room, aromas of chocolate, bourbon, espresso and vanilla fill your realm. They intertwine and mingle nicely. The first sip is one you’ll remember as a flood of bold flavours attack the palette. Molasses, fig, bourbon and aged wood play alongside notes of refined coffee, creme brûlée, warming alcohol and weathered plum. Velvety, bold, luscious, and soft. A long finish leaving behind a spider web of lacing. Let this one breathe. Lie some down to age. Embrace the boldness and enjoy the ride.
Also coming back to the retail fridges is favourites Harry Porter and Harry Porter and the Bourbon Soaked Vanilla Bean. Both will be available in 473ml cans and are as delicious as always.
