As part of their annual DecemBEER Series, Wellington Brewery has announced the release of four limited edition Bourbon Barrel-Aged Imperial Russian Stout variations. The UVB-76 series will be released on Friday December 1st, 2017 at the brewery and online while supplies last.
A wave of radio static is interrupted by a mysterious buzzing tone and occasionally a voice repeating the names: Roman, Olga, Boris, Mikhail. UVB-76, also known as “the Buzzer”, is a mysterious Russian radio station broadcasting continuously since 1973. Inspired by this cryptic transmission, Wellington has brewed a massive Imperial Russian Stout and aged it for over 4 months in first use Kentucky Bourbon Barrels.
Roman is the original straight bourbon barrel-aged Imperial Russian Stout. With rich coffee, dark cocoa, and smokey bourbon notes, this is a beautiful exploration of the combination of barrels and beer.
Olga builds on the UVB-76 base with the unique addition of star anise, adding a deep licorice and herbal flavor to this dark and complex stout.
Boris is super smooth, rounding out this robust imperial stout with the addition of hazelnut flavor and vanilla beans.
Mikhail takes UVB-76 to a new level with the addition of Mexican-style hot chocolate spices including cinnamon, cocoa, vanilla, and spicy chillies. It’s the perfect blend of sweetness and spice.
Each of these UVB-76 bottles will be available on Friday December 1st, 2017 at the brewery for $5.45 / 355mL bottle or in a mix 4-pack including one bottle of each variation for $19.95 including tax and deposit. The mix 4-pack will also be available for purchase online from the Wellington Brewery online store with $13 shipping anywhere in Ontario.
