This is Monsters' Park, our hulking cantankerous imperial stout, aged in fragrant, oaky bourbon barrels. The Barrel character is immediately evident on the nose and only grows more intense in the flavor. Notes of vanilla, caramel and molasses meld with the huge roast character of Monsters' Park to create a veritable superhero of flavors (like earth, fire, wind, water, and heart, even). The beer's aroma and flavor reach their peak when the beer is allowed to warm up a bit, so don't get all antsy and drink it right out of the fridge.

Woody with cinnamon (which I strangely love in a stout). Pours black, no lacing. Feel is soft with medium carbonation. Overall, a great BBA stout to be had.

I had this beer on-tap in a tulip at Special Brews in Lynnwood, WA.

Appearance: rich dark black with a thin layer of dark tan foam. Color is outstanding.

Smell: very sweet with vanilla, Bourbon and chocolate. Lots of alcohol fruitiness; tons of depth and character. Great.

Taste: sweet, Bourbon, vanilla and caramel. Toffee notes as well. Plenty of alcohol heat - just what you're looking for in a Bourbon-barrel stout.

Mouthfeel: medium-rich body with a good carbonation and smoothness.

Overall: whoooo this thing has a lot of alcohol. It's good, but I couldn't drink a ton of it.
