A Note on This Beer
River North Brewery’s Mr. Sandman Imperial Stout is ranked the #1 Imperial Stout in the World by the beer experts at Paste Magazine. It beat Surly, Perennial, Founders, and a hundred other dark beer behemoths in a blind taste test.
Apart from hanging out in their taproom or hitting the bottleshop circuit in Colorado, drinking this 11.9% ABV dark ganache cocktail of roast and booze was merely a dream -- until now. We’re bringing you the nation’s top Imperial Stout and its Whiskey Barrel-Aged friend in an exclusive pairing:
- Mr. Sandman - Paste’s tasting panel went on to say this smooth ride of bittersweet baker’s cocoa with hints of raspberries is “one of those rare beers that comes along and no one at the table has anything negative to say about it.” It’s so intense yet melds the 11.9% ABV in its silky chocolate richness, so we too are finding it impossible to be critical. (4.16 on Untappd).
- Whiskey Barrel-Aged Mr. Sandman - Layer in sweet vanilla and caramel notes from 10 months in Utah and Colorado-bred Whiskey barrels, a 13.2% ABV, and the refined chocolatey character of the original, and you have this beer well in mind. First time leaving the taproom, too! (4.35 on Untappd).
The saying goes “if you will it, it is not a dream.” The dream is reality now that we’re partnering with River North, bringing the #1 Imperial Stout and its barrel friend to your tastebuds for the very first time. But with only 150 cases made of each version, don’t sleep on this treasure from Never, Neverland.
