This beer seemed easier to get than the other BB releases. Smell was great as the Wild Turkey came through easily. Taste was very boozy, but I think it will calm down a little as the beer mellows with age. Mouth felt warm with spicy bourbon fire breath , but overall this is another fantastic release in the BB series from SA.

Saint Arnold Bishop’s Barrel No. 5 has a thin, cream-colored head, an opaque, brown appearance, with little beige chunks suspended throughout, and some lacing left on the glass. The aroma is of rich, very sweet, brown bread crust, strong bourbon, some vanilla, coconut, and alcohol. Taste is of bourbon, vanilla, coconut, brown bread crust, lots of alcohol, dark-roasted malts, and a bit of hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium and not cloying, and Saint Arnold Bishop’s Barrel No. 5 finishes semi-dry, surprisingly mellow, and rich. Overall, this is very well done and more drinkable than one would expect for such a high-alcohol beer. It is really delicious!
