A Note on This Beer
Dark Beer fans fall all over themselves for a taste of Mr. Sandman. It’s the brew that won Paste Mag’s Imperial Stout blind tasting, beating out almost 100 other beers from top breweries around the country!
It doesn’t get better than that! Unless, of course, you take that winning brew and let it slumber in Whiskey Barrels for up to 10 months.
That’s exactly what the Stout masters at River North did to make today’s Whiskey Barrel-Aged Mr. Sandman!
It has all the roastiness and molasses-like caramelization that impressed Paste’s judges in the original, with added layers of oaky vanilla, bourbon sweetness, and a touch of barrel char. All those barrel notes roll right over the incredible 13% ABV, softening it into super smooth drinkability.
And, you all love it — last time we managed to sneak a stash out of Denver, you rated it a towering 4.21 on Tavour!
If you missed it back then, now you can find out why your fellow Stout fans went so bonkers for it. Just be quick, this limited-release behemoth never hangs around for long!
