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 this version of our Russian Imperial Stout with semi-sweet chocolate and coconut, to create a sensual stout with an extra large set of mounds. We think Catherine’s Mounds would be proud to be represented by this stout... ale.
