Barrel Aged Nightmare Fuel
River North Brewery
A Note on This Beer
Just as the chill begins to settle around the Mile High City, something stirs in the heart of Denver’s brewing district.
It’s River North’s Barrel Aged Nightmare Fuel!
Awakened from its 9-month slumber in freshly emptied Colorado whiskey barrels, BA Nightmare Fuel flows with rich notes of woody molasses and caramel. Sip deep into its coffee-brewed depths, and you’ll discover powerful apparitions of dark fruit, fresh-tilled earth, and roasty chocolate!
The name may sound spooky, but it takes very little time to realize this limited release is all about cozy warmth. After all, Nightmare Fuel’s dessert-like mocha character comes wrapped in a boozy 12.5% ABV!
This is one Nightmare you’ll want to keep revisiting, but be forewarned — the brewers craft this annual treat in highly limited amounts, and dark beer-loving craft fans zoom in fast. In River North’s own words, the bottles “tend to vanish like ghosts!”
The discerning palates at Craft Beer & Brewing give BA Nightmare Fuel an impressive 95/100!
