Frost Quake Beer Review

frost quake_wellington

This Guelph-made barleywine has bold bourbon flavours

Brewery: Wellington Brewery
Style: American Barleywine
ABV: 9.8%        IBU: 85

Feeling the need for a tasty brew after an evening of pouring beer samples for others, I found I could not resist this tempting label. I quite enjoy a good barleywine and bourbon barrels are nothing to sneeze at either so I had to take a closer look. When I realized it was a Wellington brew, I decided it was a solid choice and promptly took one home for the evening. And I was not disappointed, not one bit. Warm and full of dark fruit flavours, it is a robust brew sure to warm you up on the coldest of nights.

Imperial Russian Stout | 24 Days of Beer #12

Day 12-Wellington Imperial Russian Stout

This Imperial Russian Stout is rich enough to help you stay warm in the coldest of weather

Brewery: Wellington Brewery
Style: Strong Stout
ABV: 8%      IBU: 42

Wellington Imperial Russian Stout pours black with a short tan head that dissipates quickly. Strong toasted malts and coffee dominate the aroma with hints of chocolate, vanilla, and licorice coming through as well as just a touch of spice.

The flavour opens bitter with strong coffee and malt notes and just a touch of chocolate sweetness. A light spice and strong bitter character follow with more chocolate and licorice notes. Strong carbonation and a lasting spicy bitterness make this stout somewhat prickly despite the thick body
