A Note on This Beer
Counting down the days till your next Tavour shipment arrives? Here's a delicious stout we think you might like.
In the 9 years since River North opened their doors, they’ve taken over the craft brew scene.
Where do I begin?! These dexterous brewmasters won Brewery of the Year at the Best of Craft Beer Awards, opened 3 taprooms, AND won numerous medals. Plus, they’re still having a blast doing what they do best — brewing up ultra-tasty beers!
Today’s one-of-a-kind Anniversary 9 Imperial Stout is a culmination and celebration of all that hard work. They went completely nuts with this sumptuous brew, loading their Stout base with 9 lbs of real coconut per barrel. Then, they aged this Mounds-like confection for 9 whole months in locally-sourced Whiskey barrels.
The result is a chocolatey, coconutty 12.5% ABV Stout, laced with luxurious ribbons of whiskey-sweet booziness.
Early taster @E.A. says it tastes just like a “Girl Scout Samoan cookie dipped in an Irish coffee.” @Justin N. even goes so far as to declare it the, “Best beer I’ve ever tasted!”
River North says this one’s for the “coconut lovers, whiskey lovers, and stout lovers.” You get the picture — pretty much every dark brew lover can find something to covet in this Imperial Stout!
The kicker? To round out their 9-year theme, River North bottled 99 cases total of this coconut bomb. Chances are high this will be your first and only chance to snag a sip for yourself, because a 9th anniversary only happens once!
With Tavour, it's easy to beer it forward! Just head over to Tavour.com/gifts to send a gift box or gift card to the craft beer lover in your life. Cheers!
