DENVER — Cinnamon is a great addition to many things: coffee, tea, any kind of baked goods like cinnamon rolls (obviously), even pizza crust and roasts. What’s another great combination none other than beer with cinnamon?! River North Brewery is releasing an imperial stout brewed with three types of cinnamon this Saturday, July 31st.
Don’t be discouraged by “triple cinnamon” and think that it’s going to be overpowered by cinnamon flavors. This Mr. Sandman variant has been brewed with three varieties of cinnamon sourced from the far corners of the world: Sri Lankan Ceylon, Vietnamese Cassia, and Indonesian Korintje. These three cinnamon varieties make this imperial stout sweet and vivacious with cinnamon notes that will dance around your mouth and give you a pleasant warm feeling that might make you wish it was Fall and you were wrapped up in a cozy blanket.
An 11% ABV imperial stout with a smooth, silky body is perhaps the best breakfast beer paired with cinnamon rolls and a cup of coffee on the side. Not that you need to save this beer for breakfast as it’s also perfect with your evening dessert paired with carrot cake or a dark chocolate cake.
Triple Cinnamon Mr. Sandman will be released on tap and in 375ml bottles at both taprooms starting Saturday, July 31st. If you haven’t had any Mr. Sandman, whether it’s the original, whiskey barrel aged or another variant, you will be pleasantly surprised with this variety of River North Brewery’s well known imperial stout.
Peanut Butter Milk Stout Nitro also capitalizes on the success of Peanut Butter Milk Stout, which launched as a seasonal in early 2020. Due to consumer delight and demand, Left Hand quickly turned the popular new brand into a year-round offering.
The addition of nitrogen to their traditionally carbonated Peanut Butter Milk Stout combines Left Hand’s signature super smooth mouthfeel and hypnotic cascade with a flavor profile exuding peanut buttery bliss and notes of milk chocolate. “Nitrogen makes perfect sense for our Peanut Butter Milk Stout. Gas spec is an ingredient just like malt or hops, and nitrogen helps deliver that creaminess you crave from a peanut butter beer,” said Jeff Joslin, Left Hand’s Director of Brewing Operations.
“Our classic Milk Stout’s aromas of roasted coffee, milk chocolate, brown sugar, and vanilla cream are the perfect canvas for the rich and nutty flavors of peanut butter,” said Jill Preston, Director of Marketing and Hospitality at Left Hand. “Whether you are pouring hard from the bottle or enjoying straight from the tap, its pillowy head and velvety mouthfeel will caress your palate smoother than a spoonful of creamy peanut butter.” It’s an adult peanut butter cup you can drink.
Peanut Butter Milk Stout Nitro is shipping now in 6-packs of 12oz bottles and kegs. Check out Left Hand’s beer finder for locations nearest you and click here for digital assets.
