Saint Arnold Bishop’s Barrel No. 3

It’s that time again! As loyal Pint Jockeys know, every week we pick out a Texas beer that should be recognized by the craft beer community for just being so darn good. This week we were glad to get our hands on the coveted Saint Arnold Bishop’s Barrel No. 3. The third installment in the small batch, barrel aged series of Saint Arnold beers, No. 3 is as original as its predecessors. No surprise, Saint Arnold Brewing Company is still brewing up a loyal following while honing their elite craft beer.


The brewery tells us No. 3 is a Russian Imperial Stout aged for 12 months in oak bourbon barrels. The oak bourbon nicely complements this beer but be prepared for its taste (and the chocolate kick)  to stand out. It certainly isn’t overpowering and is remarkably easy to drink, but you’ll want to take your time with this sipping beer. In fact, no need to worry about your glass staying ice-cold; No. 3 improves in taste as it warms up. Black/brown in color with mild creaminess and carbonation, this beer gets two Pint Jockeys thumbs up!

If you’ve tried No. 1 and No.2, No.3 is still well worth your time. It is most similar to No. 1 (also an imperial stout) but with a longer aging time and a touch of creaminess. The brew is only available in bars and restaurants in Texas and Louisiana and only a limited amount still remains! Now go get your beer on and tell us what you think about this delectable brew from Saint Arnold. Cheers!
