Odell Brewing Co. will be releasing its first new 12-ounce packaged beer in over a decade tomorrow.
The beer in question is named Jolly Russian, a 13.3 percent ABV Russian imperial stout that has been aged in rum barrels. According to a post on the Fort Collins, Colo.-based brewery’s Facebook page, the imperial stout is the same beer as Russian Pirate, a 13.3 percent ABV Russian imperial stout aged in rum barrels that was first released as a draft-only option late last year.
“Dark as night and thick as the raging sea, this brew boasts notes of coffee and cocoa with waves of oak, spiced molasses, dried fruit and vanilla from the planks,” reads the beer label.
Jolly Russian will be packaged in 12-ounce bottles and is scheduled to be released during an event at the brewery on Sept. 30 with a two bottle per person limit before heading to retailers across Odell’s 13-state distribution footprint.
