Brew Bus Brewing (Tampa, Florida) has officially announced that it will be unloading both barrels on Tampa Bay Beer Week with the limited release of Double Barrel-aged Scorched Earth Russian Imperial Stout on Monday, March 5.
It is well known that you have to go big during Tampa Bay Beer Week, and the overachievers at Brew Bus are doing just that by releasing 16 oz. cans of a double barrel-aged treatment of their 12.5% ABV Scorched Earth. Rocking a base of “roasted malt flavors with caramel and dark fruity undertones”, this Imperial Stout has been “aged in rye whiskey and rum barrels and then, in true communist fashion, blended together to create an army of esters and aromas unparalleled in weaker beers.” Although this bad boy may be “big and bold”, the nuanced Double Barrel-aged Scorched Earth “boasts an arsenal of flavor that won’t leave your palette smoldering in ruins.”
Double Barrel-aged Scorched Earth Russian Imperial Stout will officially release at The Brew Bus Terminal & Brewery at 4 p.m. on Monday, March 5. This Limited Release will be sold in 2-packs of 16 oz. cans for $20 (no limits have been set at this time). As an added bonus, the Brew Bus brewing team “will be bartending this event and will be on hand to chat and answer questions” about Double Barrel-aged Scorched Earth and the brewery in general. If you find yourself in the Seminole Heights area on Monday afternoon, be sure to swing by the brewery, get your hands on some Double Barrel-aged Scorched Earth, and raise a glass with the folks at Brew Bus in celebration of Tampa Bay Beer Week. Prost!
