Named after the patron saint of Barleyís, this is a big Imperial Stout that pushes alcohol to the State limit of 12%. If you can get it in the cask or firkin, youíll be experiencing the joy of barrel-contioned ale--conditioned in a retired Jack Danielís barrel. Perfect autumn sipping ale.

Pours a deep brown/black with a nice thick tan head. Malt taste of coffee and a hint of chocolate. Solid stout where the 12% ABV could sneek up on you. Very drinkable. draft at brewpub

Tap at barleys. Wow. Dark black pour with little brown head. Thick as oil and good hearty nose. Smooth and hides the alcohol. Very balanced and only thing I'd change is make it a bit more sweet. Great imperial stout overall. ---Rated via my mouth

draft- hot, hot, heat. certainly has the roast as well, but plenty thin, and not really a super enjoyable drinking experience. Maybe the jamaican jerk wings had something to do with it.

T3. Nose is sweet and musty. Stone fruit. Taste is overly fruity and creamy. Bleh. Not my favorite.

Bomber at Toncatcherís T3. Pours an amber-brown color with a small beige head. The aroma was sweet with brown sugar, malts and something vegetable. The taste was much better than the nose, there was a good chocolate base with sweet malts and some red wine. The mouthfeel was full and smooth. Overall: A very tasty RIS, would like to try a bit more of this when Iím sober.

Served from a bottle at toncatchers T3 tasting! Thanks to stefanje, lagunitasfan, weeheavysd, fordest, wetherel, alohac and of course toncatcher for suppling the house and grub. Thanks to Jon for bringing this in a GROWLER!!! Jeez would have liked a bigger sample. I only got an oz. Just kidding. A pretty good Imperial Stout.

One of my all-time favorite beers. Havenít had it in a while, but Iím worried because Iíve had some bad batches of beers I love from these guys recently. Black pour with a thin beige head. Malty aroma with coffee, chocolate and some alcohol. You really have to let it warm to get much in the nose. Malty flavor with alcohol and chocolate with a coffee finish. Great beer.
