Modern Times Monsters' Park Imperial Stout Aged In Bourbon Barrels
Black as oil and thick. A vigorous pour produces a two finger, deep brown head. The mouth-feel is very full, with healthy, prickly carbonation. The aroma pops...notes of bourbon, oak, chocolate, and toasted nuts waft out of the glass. The flavor is very powerful, with bourbon & roast malt leading the charge, followed by vanilla oak, caramel, dark chocolate, and those toasted nuts again. The finish lingers for days, with sweet malt and bourbon dominating. A seriously intense but very well-rounded barrel-aged imperial stout. The roast intensity of Monsters' Park is a beautiful match for the sweetness of bourbon.
