Day 3 Drink: Moylan’s Ryan Sullivan’s Imperial Stout

Ryan Sullivan's Imperial Stout was created in 1996 to honor the bagpipe player who appears at Moylan's Brewery & Restaurant in Novato, Calif., every St. Patrick's Day to play tunes to mark the holiday.

Moylan’s Ryan Sullivan’s Imperial Stout is black as a moonless night. A rich mocha head stays thick throughout and the malty aroma is very inviting. This beer gets its rich complex flavour from a total of nine different malts and has enormous flavors: roasted sweet malt base, touch of vanilla, espresso, fig and hint of cocoa in the finish.

True to it's imperial stout roots, Ryan Sullivan's weighs in at 10 percent alcohol by volume.
