Smells like the poof of dust when you open a pouch of chocolate
milk mix. If that's not descriptive enough, then f'ck you. But seriously, great nose on this beer, medium thickness on the mouthfeel but completely flat. Chocolate, rye, vanilla? Better than the regular but the flatness is weird.

650 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Black body. No bubbles. Looks flat.

Smell - Rye whiskey. It's pretty distinct. Some black patent malts. Fudgy.

Taste - Chocolate. Fudgy. Molasses. Nice rye component. Very sweet. Overly sweet, I'd say. A little chalky int he finish.

Mouthfeel - Flat. Medium heavy.

Overall - It's a decent flavor, aside from the chalkiness. Where's the carbonation?

Massive love to an awesome guy, who threw this bottle at me randomly after a beer at Churchill’s late this fall. Now people all the way across the country are giving me stuff with “rye” inscribed on the label. My reputation. It groweth. Split with my wife, 22 oz. bottle.

The pour is dead, flat black; someone has beheaded my beer. A search party has been sent for the nose: even after much warming & swirling there’s spare malt, sweetness.

Monster’s Park - Rye Barrel Aged appears to be distantly related to a nut brown ale. Intense nuttiness up front. Malt sweetness, but the barrel is subdued to the point of unconsciousness, other than the oaky dryness. A bit of sluggish earthiness runs through the mid-palate, with a derecho of cherry sourness. That doesn’t seem good. The incipient unpleasantness grows as it warms. Heavy. Borderline undrinkable.

There appears to be something in the early stages of wrong here: the barrel is almost undetectable, & a sharp fruitiness is developing. The aftertaste…well, it really sticks around. Obviously not as intended, & that makes me sad.

Going to catch up on several beers. This one was dark, rich and complex. Liked the rye barrel character.

Completely still, could have been a cool beer but that really held back all areas...

This beer would be pretty good if it had at least some level of carbonation. There was zero. MAJOR FAIL modern times!
