Catherine’s Passion

Russian Imperial Stout


Catherine II, the 18th century Empress of Russia, is said to have been the inspiration behind the creation of the Russian Imperial Stout, an intensely flavored, robust, dark ale with a noticeable alcohol presence. Legend has it that Catherine also had a voracious sexual appetite; she was known to have many lovers, but the story about the stallion was probably a myth.

We infused our Russian Imperial Stout with cocoa nibs and fair trade coffee, to create a sensual stout with an extra kick. We think Catherine’s Passion would be aroused by this stout…ale.
