A Note on This Beer
If you’ve ever had a Long Island Iced Tea, you know it's a tasting flight full of spirits!
But, you won’t find this type of cocktail flavor expedition in many Stouts, or brews of any kind, really. It takes cunning craftsmanship to tame an arsenal of such boozy beasts.
The beer world is lucky the high ABV experts at River North took on the challenge with today’s Long Island Mr. Sandman Barrel Aged Stout. Their original Mr. Sandman took 1st place in Paste Mag’s blind tasting, beating out hundreds of the world’s top-rated Stouts!
To create today’s Long Island variant, the brewery took their champion dark beer and barrel-aged it in a blend of Gin, Whiskey, Tequila, and Rum Barrels!
Not to mention, they amped it up with zesty orange, as well — it wouldn’t be a true Long Island without a little citrus, now would it?
It’s quite impressive how they wove all of that distinctive liquor character seamlessly into a bittersweet, dark chocolate-covered orange Stout.
It’s fit for the menu at a fancy speakeasy — or a date night dinner at home.
