A Note on This Beer
Alewerks’ Café Royale Imperial Coffee Milk Stout aged in Bourbon Barrels is vanilla cream brulee crusted with maple brown sugar and spun with potent notes of whiskey spiked Vietnamese coffee.
Each of these flavors has a real ingredient that drives its presence home with a dramatic flourish. The barrel aging brings the whiskey, the coffee delivers the carob-braised java and the lactose sugars supplies the cream. It’s complex, milky and rich – making this 8% ABV juggernaut roar like a 12 percenter.
Aging in multi-gold medal winning Virginia Gentleman Bourbon Barrels imbues this heavy Stout with sexy cinnamon spice and hues of sweet caramel vanilla. The woody bourbon sting hits high upfront and warms everything it touches with blushes of chocolate soaked berries and fudgy espresso.
In addition to being a dark beer beast, Café Royal is a ratings monster— 4.33 on Untappd, 94 on Beer Advocate, 99 on RateBeer. Craft beer fans across all sites praise its supreme boozy decadence. Indulge in its massive flavor depths and when you do, drink it out of a flask.
