Saint Arnold Brewing Co. will be releasing Bishop’s Barrel 9 next week.

Based on the Houston, Texas-based brewery’s popular Pumpkinator beer that was first released in October 2011, Bishop’s Barrel 9 is a 12.9 percent ABV imperial stout that is brewed with pale two row, caramel and black malts along with cascade and liberty hops. Pumpkin, molasses, brown sugar and spices were then incorporated into the beer before being aged in both Woodford Reserve and Willett bourbon barrels for over seven months.
