A Note on This Beer
When we shared Whiskey Barrel Aged Mr. Sandman with you last year, you Stout-loving fiends couldn’t grab it fast enough! And once you tasted its luxurious, belly-warming depths, you rated it a colossal 4.24 on the app!
Like the craft connoisseurs you are, you agreed with Paste Mag, who called the original Mr. Sandman “a revelation” and named it #1 in their blind taste test, beating more than 100 other beers!
But I know the REAL reason you went crazy for this 12.8% ABV beast. You knew the best way to get through the holidays was with a bottle of whiskey-laced decadence by your side!
River North is once again ready to fill the Imperial Stout-shaped hole in all of our hearts. After resting in bourbon and American single malt whiskey barrels for 10 months, intoxicating aromas of oaky vanilla and rich cocoa waft from its inky pour. Layers of dark chocolate, molasses, and a whisper of barrel char round out each supple sip.
However, River North only bottled 199 cases. To land a bottle, you’ll have to be on the nice list — and by “nice,” I mean “faster than Santa’s reindeer on a sugar high!”
