A Note on This Beer
***This beer is over 50% gone!***
Dark Beer fans have been swooning over River North ever since Paste Mag dubbed their Mr. Sandman Stout #1 in a blind taste test. It even beat out Three Floyds, Hoppin’ Frog, and Fremont!
Now, the Denver brewery has taken that champion Stout and amplified it into a boozier version, designed to age for up to two full decades! That means, if you currently have a toddler, today’s beer could be their 21st birthday present.
This is Vicennial: Barrel-Aged Shadowman. Add a bottle of this 15.5% ABV monster to your cellar, and your Stout loving friends will gawk in amazement when you pull it out.
And this edition — aged in 4x World Whiskies Award-winning Breckenridge Bourbon Barrels — will only get smoother and more nuanced with time. Although, it’s already delicious as is. The impatient folks who have opened their bottles rated it a massive 4.34 on UT!
This oil-black pour enrobes the palate with avalanches of rich dark chocolate, mole spice, traces of sweet caramel, and a hint of tobacco char. The finish reverberates with echoes of silky smooth milk chocolate and maple syrup, leaving a lasting impression on your tastebuds long after your final sip. Its decadence will only deepen in your cellar, developing leagues of luscious dessert flavors.
If you choose to hold onto The Shadowman, it will mature into the crown jewel of your collection. Save it for the most special of occasions, and let your friends marvel at how its luxurious strength beautifully stands the test of time.
Or, open it now and treat yourself and a worthy pal to something special. You might want to pick up a couple of bottles so you can do both.
Rated 4.34 on Untappd!
