We’ve saved a very classy ale for the last of our four seasonal brews of 2015, Scotland’s Year of Food & Drink. Bear is a velvety smooth Russian Imperial Stout, exuding vanilla, espresso coffee and bitter dark chocolate flavours.

It’s been six months in the making; barrel aged for three months and bottle conditioned for another three months. We’ve achieved 10.5% ABV with all the intense rich flavours you would expect from this majestic ale, perfect for savouring over the festive season.

There are just 2,268 bottles, so don’t leave it too late to get yours or to let your loved ones know it’s on your wish list.

We’ve received great feedback on our 2015 seasonal brews so far and we’ll be adopting Aurora, our Spring release, into our core range of products through 2016, in cask and in bottle sometime later in the year.

Let us know what you think of the Bear on Facebook or Twitter. Enjoy!
