Crack open a bottle of today’s Canadian Whiskey Barrel-Aged B.O.R.I.S. Royale Imperial Stout and treat yourself to the royal treatment. Its spirited, caramelly depth is even more layered than Hoppin’ Frog’s two-time GABF Gold-winning Stout, and this 2018 vintage is knocking the boozy socks off fans who rate it a towering 4.25 on UT!
Sip on B.O.R.I.S. Royale in front of a crackling fire to revel in the bittersweet chocolate and caramel whiskey riches that majestically unfurl. On second thought, with its 9.4% ABV, skip the fire -- this dark decadence will make you cozy all on its own!
No matter the occasion, this is your chance to savor the brew that won Gold at the World Beer Championships for its complex depth. The Ohio masters of big, bold beers have struck again!
Bring a snifter of Royale up to your nose and inhale deeply to savor aromas of charred stonefruit and almond-studded toffee. Let the first sip slowly unfurl across your palate as you begin to identify notes of dark chocolate fudge, rich brown sugar, sweet whiskey, and hints of vanilla. As Royale warms further, a touch of oak comes through, followed by a wave of lightly bitter coffee and char with subtle touches of marshmallow creme and dark fruit. Waves of smooth richness coarse through the full, chewy body, and a rich whiskey warmth lingers in the finish.
Lock the doors, grab a bottle of B.O.R.I.S. Royale, and all your cares will melt away. Or save it for one of those days when you need a little cheering up. Between its accolade-studded reputation and its endless warming depth, this barrel-aged beauty proves it’s always a great time to treat yourself and your customers like royalty.
