First exported to the Baltic Sea region in 1781 by the Barclay-Perkins brewery, it was brewed for more than 200 years by the Barclay-Perkins brewery. It became the preferred beer of the Empress Catherine II who ensured a regular import of this beer for the Russian imperial court, hence the new name of Russian Imperial Stout.

The perfect match according to Martin Thibault, Les Coureurs des Boires
This voluptuous sipper of a dark beer seems to have been tailor-made to accompany a scary movie – you know the one that pushes you to snuggle up on the couch? Around dinner time though, the beer’s velvety body and its chocolaty intensity accompany game sausages and blue cheeses most admirably. Globetrotters out there might even see a pairing potential with a spicy satay sauce because of the stout’s roasted coffee and nut allusions. Surely a plateful that is worth the trip!
10% alc./vol IBU 70. Extra strong beer well balanced and not heavy. Strong bitterness with a coffee and chocolate aroma.
