About This Beer
If you have a toddler, this beer could be their 21st birthday present. Seriously — River North designed Vicennial: Barrel-Aged Shadowman to age for up to two FULL decades.
In all honesty, I’d have to bury my bottle in my backyard to even have a chance of keeping my paws off this 16.9% ABV monster for that long.
But the reality is, this edition — aged in 4x World Whiskies Award-winning Breckenridge Bourbon Barrels — will only get smoother and more nuanced with time. Which is a hard concept to grasp, considering it’s already incredibly delicious as is!
Shadowman’s oil-black pour enrobes the palate with avalanches of rich dark chocolate, mole spice, traces of caramel, and a hint of tobacco char. The finish reverberates with echoes of silky smooth cocoa and maple syrup, lingering long after the sip.
