The Three-Eyed Trout resides deep within the gulches of the Schuylkill river until its annual migration to just outside the brewery, hoping to get a sample of this rich, hoppy warmer. This Stout is made with the same malts and hopping schedule of our popular Double IPA with the addition of roasted barley and chocolate malts. This comparatively, is more robust and velvety melded with copious citrus back-tones from the west coast hops. 66 IBU’s.
Formerly a summer seasonal and at 10%.

Apparently this one is back, although the latest ABV listing is more like 7-8%. Nice looking blackish color with foamy tan head. Aroma has quite a bit of coffee with toasted malts, chocolate and licorice. Taste is a strong blend of dark coffees, with some chocolate, dark grains, and other dark/sweet flavors. Pretty chewy - overall pretty good.

KSBF. Deep blackish color, with aroma of malt, chocoff, slight licorice and dark fruit. Tastes malty, with chocolate, slight coffee, slight cherries, and some oak and vanilla. Very complex and well balanced. Manayunk has its hits and misses...this one was definitely a hit.

KSBF 04, Medium sized, lasting, dark brown head, fair retention. Almost black with some ruby edging. Roasty, Chocolatey nose, grainy. Med/full body, chewy. Medium sweet maltiness, plenty of roast, mild coffee notes, hints of caramel and chocolate with some light vinous notes. Dry roasty finish that lasts. Manayunk brews some very nice beers. Oh yea! 10% ! Ya would,nt know it! HEHE.

GABF 2004: Barely transparent with a thin light tan head. Aroma is sweet and roasty with a touch of acidity. Body has a sweet sticky maltiness and decent complexity, but could be a bit thicker. Enjoyable and smooth, this is a decent imperial stout.

Red-black body with tan head. Aroma is sweet, chocolate, roasty, some coffee. Taste is sweet chocolate, roasty, vinous. Full body. Good beer, but the elements didn’t work as well together as I wanted them to.

egajdzis (5898) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 4, 2004
Poured an opaque black color, crimson edges, a tan head, and nice lacing. Aroma of chocolate, roasted coffee, dark fruits, and a little hop. The taste was full of sweet chocolate. vanilla, coffee and toffee, some fig, lightly peppered, and a slight alcohol finish. Soft and creamy mouthfeel. I’ve never heard of a summer imperial stout, but wouldn’t object if more people made them like this.

TAR (2595) - Marshall (Asheville area), North Carolina, USA - JUN 3, 2004
Maple-bordered ebony. Thin, dense-bubbled, tan head. Heavy notes of roast, fudge, toasty esters, tangy/earthy hops, and roasted barley in the nose. Whispers of creamed plums, cotton, cocoa, mixed berries, and light airiness. Creamy carbonation. Medium-bodied. Flavorful blend of roasted malts, chocolate fudge, and grapefruity hops. Dried fruit twang offsets some of the malt richness while caramel and chalky black malts caress the hop bitterness. Fairly minerally, as well, which controls the gooey fudge richness. There’s just enough alcohol and seared malts to dry it out as it finishes thickly malted with an assertive backbone of bushy, earthy hops. Hop and fudge notes continue to shine through long after the swallow. This is top-notch stuff.
