Ruby label



Black Ruby Imperial Stout (11.1%ABV) is a rich dark imperial stout infused with Dominican cacao nibs, roast coffee beans, and raspberries, bursting with intense roasted coffee and bitter chocolate flavours, rich velvety mouthfeel and lingering raspberry notes.

Best Before VS Vintage
Black Ruby has a Vintage on the label, not a Best Before date. Beer which has an ABV (Alcohol By Volume) at or above 7.3% ABV is packaged (like wine) with a Vintage and date of packaging. Like wine, beer packaged with a Vintage has no Best Before and does not expire, and like wine can be cellared, potentially for years. Beer which is cellared will likely change character, possibly losing some strong flavours and allowing other flavours to come to the fore.
