UVB-76 Bourbon Barrel-Aged Imperial Stout Series


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, we brewed a massive 11.9% 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 flavour to this dark and complex stout.

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.

BORIS is super smooth, rounding out this robust imperial stout with the addition of hazelnut flavour and vanilla beans.


Each of these UVB-76 bottles are available 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 is also available for purchase online from the Wellington Brewery online store with $13 flat rate shipping anywhere in Ontario.
