Pours jet black on tap at North Park Flavordome. Sample taster was just enough.

Aroma is chocolate overload. Lots of bourbon. It is very reminiscent of bourbon county.

Taste is more chocolate, vanilla, bourbon, oak, and alcohol heat. Again has a very close bourbon county character, but there is definitely more of a alcohol bite. Mouthfeels are similar with maybe a bit more carbonation with the monsters park. Super pumped to finally try this!

Overall, this is a great beer and something I didn’t expect to be on tap. I would happily drink again. However, I still would gravitate to a bourbon county given the same character without the alcohol burn and high price. Will be excited to try the variants of this beer!it gets a 91.5/100.

Bought a couple of bottles a few years ago and have now had this beer fresh, as well as aged for one, two, and three years. This one has only gotten better with age. I just had my last one, unfortunately, which was three years old and the best one yet. This beer only gets smoother with age. Pours a very dark brown with just a bit of foam that dissipates quickly. Aroma of chocolate and roasted coffee with a bit of sweet dark fruit. All the flavors come together better as time goes on. Taste is dominated by dark fruit and chocolate with roasted coffee playing in the background. The 12% ABV is completely unnoticed as time goes on. Feel is on the plus side of medium. Overall, this is a phenomenal beer that ages very well and continues to improve as time goes on. I know that this beer now solely serves as the base for adjunct variations of Monsters' Park, but I would love for Modern Times to bring this back as a special release again. I would love to have the opportunity to buy a dozen bottles to hold onto for several years.

Pours black as night, with just a little bit of foam.

Smell is big and bold, notes of arrack, raisins and treacle.

Massive hits of coffee and treacle on the tongue, bolstered by some notes of raisins and nuts. Tastes almost like a mix of mostly stout and a little bit of a quad.

Mouthfeel is thick and oily.

Overall, a very good stout, balanced, yet massive. Would love to try some of the variants.

The 2016 has a sour taste that I never found in a bourbon aged Imperial Stout. Like all sours I don't know if I like it or dislike, what I do know is I had better.

L - Inky black body with a finger of light brown head

S - Sweet bourbon, oak, coffee, black licorice, cherries, raisins, leather

T - Bourbon first, but swept away by cherry cordials. Bitter dark coffee, wood, tiny bit of char, dark fruits.

F - Not the thickest BA stout, but still good. Absolutely NO trace of alcohol.

O - I think of the base stouts flavors popped more, the this would creep closer to the elite. Still a big bastard of a beer that can be sipped on and enjoyed for hours.
