I really like modern times, but f*ck them for charging 30 dollars for this bottle. Anyone with this i encourage you to take it back and demand a refund

While this beer is not awful, it hardly commands its enormous price tag. Very little rum nose, and hardly any rum flavor compare to the other beers in this release. Obvious nice viscosity of monsters park series, with a gentle smooth flow, very dry for 13 percent and hides it well. However overall this is a decent stout, but im shocked they charged this much

Thanks to Wowcoolman for sharing this one at the LA Beer Talk bottle share.

Pours an opaque black with a foamy dark khaki head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, cocoa powder, dark fruit, rum, and wood aromas. Taste is much the same with cocoa powder, dark fruit, rum, and wood flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of roast and wood bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a very good beer with great dark fruit and rum barrel aged aspects along with the base beer.

Serving type: bottle.

L-pours black with a 1 finger mocha head.

S- smell is Rum, rum and more rum. I did get some slight dark chocolate.

T- taste was lots of alchohol. I am a huge fan of Rum Barreled stouts but this one could use some time. I got a slight fudge brownie in the middle of the sip.

F- nice thick viscous stout.

O- Overall a solid beer. I think some time will make this beer that much better.

Of course everyone wants to chase out the variants however this is fantastic!

When you hear rum barrel aged alot of people get scared away THINKING its going to be extremely boozy and way over the top....

This isn't the case with this guy.. This is a perfect combo of dark chocolate liquid syrup mixed with a perfect barrel edge thats fantastic to drink!
