Russian Imperial Stout
Catherine II, the 18th century Empress of Russia, is 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 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.
