BREWER’S NOTES | First brewed by the British for Catherine the Great, Empress of Russia this beer style is as rich in history as it is in character. Aged a year in Woodford Reserve barrels and a recipe heavy in roast and dark malts this 10.3% stout has an assertive backbone. Suggestions of dark dried fruits add complexity and peat smoked barley lends a scotch-like nose.
