Vanilla Bourbon Barrel Mr. Sandman
River North Brewery
A Note on This Beer
I am 100% convinced today’s Vanilla Bourbon Barrel-Aged Mr. Sandman is the inspiration behind Metallica’s famous hit, ‘Enter Sandman.’ Just look at the lyrics:
“I tuck you in, warm within,
Keep you free from sin,
'Til the sandman he comes.”
Obviously, Metallica is preaching patience in waiting for today’s small-batch variant of the #1 Imperial Stout in the Country! This brand new brew is a rare treat, newly emerged from its vanilla-soaked slumber in Kentucky Bourbon Barrels.
“Sleep with one eye open,
Gripping your pillow tight.”
Another easy clue, because IF you’re lucky enough to score today’s bottle, you better be on high alert to catch any one of your friends who’ll be trying to steal a taste from your cherished stash. Especially since, outside the Denver-based taproom, Tavour has exclusive-access to this incredibly rare variant!
Take my hand,
We're off to never-never land.”
Again, totally about today’s pitch black pour!
You’ll be ditching the light stuff and diving headfirst into nighttime darkness-in-a-glass. Silky smooth vanilla sings an oaky lullaby on the palate while the malty backbone balances each taste for a not-too-sweet, not-too-bitter complexity. Oh, and if you’re wondering about never-never land, finish this 12.9% ABV bottle and we think you’ll see what Metallica is talking about!
Now’s your chance to taste this rare brew for yourself!
And you better not lie down to sleep before snagging a bottle of Vanilla Bourbon Mr. Sandman. Otherwise, you’ll be one of the many Dark Beer fans that almost got ahold of this brand new edition of the country’s top-rated Imperial Stout.
*To conduct further research and confirm my theory, here is the song today’s beer (most likely) inspired.
