About This Beer
This Barrel Aged Stout really does clock in at an unbelievable 22% ABV!
Even for River North — a brewery renowned for their high gravity, oak-aged Dark Beers — that amount of booze is completely bonkers. And it’s only the beginning of the story. The RN crew went all out to celebrate a decade of craft greatness!
The brewers barrel aged this beast three separate times, meaning they aged it in bourbon barrels, then transferred it to different bourbon barrels and aged it again! After that, they moved it into Colorado whiskey barrels and allowed the brew to age even more!
Every sip brings swirling eddies of chocolate and caramel, with ripples of oaky vanilla and roasty coffee. But, as you might expect, the strongest current in this brew is undoubtedly whiskey. Bold bourbon flavors flow through every drop, but it still, somehow, drinks shockingly smooth.
