A Note on This Beer
For craft fans with a lust for luxuriously rich and boozy Dessert Beers, River North offers you their brand new, limited-edition Vanilla Avarice:
Every potent sip of the 9.5% ABV treat is like a spoonful of melty gelato doused in bold Italian espresso!
The boozy beer specialists at River North brew this Russian Imperial Stout with a Belgian-style yeast and 100% whole bourbon vanilla beans — a type of rich vanilla named after Reunion Island (formerly ‘Bourbon island’) in the Indian Ocean.
From this combination, it boasts a legion of luscious vanilla sweetness, complemented by a tantalizingly dry and roasty base.
If you’ve never heard of River North, that’s because their beers hardly ever leave Colorado. But they’re a must-try for Dark Beer lovers — they nabbed First Place in Paste Magazine’s ‘Top Imperial Stouts in the Nation’ Blind Tasting!
And here are a few suggestions for how you can enjoy today’s top-tier Stout decadence:
- After-Dinner Delight: Get a bottle and pour some up for dessert — the sweet and dry mocha beauty is a tastier after-dinner digestif than your standard cup of coffee!
- Weekend Warrior: Whip out a bottle of Vanilla Avarice on the weekend and turn your Saturday into a Satur-YAY.
- More Stellar in the Cellar: Store a bottle in the cellar for a few months and give your future self a richer brew with mellowed-out vanilla sweetness.
Because, whether you drink it now for a mocha sundae dessert or cellar it a while for even more silky smoothness, Vanilla Avarice will have you living the lifestyles of the rich and boozy — and loving it.
