About This Beer
In a Paste Magazine blind taste test featuring 102 Imperial Stouts, River North’s Mr. Sandman came out on top as the best Imperial Stout in the world.
It’s really no surprise, considering River North’s reputation as masters of bold, dark brews. Now, the Colorado crafters are back with this bourbon barrel-aged variant, made with real vanilla beans. Mr. Sandman, you’re bringing me the beer of my dreams!
Vanilla Bourbon Barrel Mr. Sandman begins with the beloved base beer, full of deep dried date and dark chocolate flavors — not to mention a dangerously drinkable 12.9% ABV! Subtle vanilla notes balance out the waves of rich bourbon in this coveted annual release, imbuing it with even more complexity.
