I've heard nothing but good about it.
Can't speak for the IPA's, but their Mirror Pond Pale is really solid. Only thing I've had of theirs, but it was well above average.

Rum Barrel-Aged Monsters' Park Release
Modern Times Beer is stoked out of our frickin' gourds to announce the release of a gnarly new barrel-aged beer. Monsters' Park--our hulking, cantankerous 13% ABV imperial stout--was aged in Nicaraguan & Caribbean rum barrels for 6 months. Three variants were also created: Caribbean Rum w/ Vanilla Beans, Nicaraguan Rum w/ Coconut & Cocoa Nibs, Nicaraguan Rum w/ Rum Barrel-Aged Coffee.

MONSTERS' PARK AGED IN NICARAGUAN RUM BARRELS
Black as oil and thick as blood. A vigorous pour produces a two finger, deep brown head. The mouthfeel is very full, with healthy carbonation. The aroma pops big time: major notes of molasses, oak, chocolate, and brown sugar waft out of the glass. The flavor is very powerful but exceptionally smooth, with dark rum & milk chocolate leading the charge, followed by vanilla-y oak, caramel, dark chocolate, and molasses. The finish lingers for days, with sweet malt and rich rum dominating. Extraordinarily smooth and rich for a 13% ABV beer. The roasty intensity of Monsters' Park is a beautiful match for the sweetness of dark rum. Bottles available: 140 (one barrel didn't pass QC which is why the number is so low). Price: $28+tax & BPT fee. Bottle limit: 1

MONSTERS' PARK AGED IN CARIBBEAN RUM BARRELS
Same appearance & mouthfeel as the Nicaraguan version, but the Caribbean rum brings a much different character to the beer. Where the dark Nicaraguan rum is all about molasses & chocolate, the Caribbean rum is fruit-forward, complex, & spirit-heavy. The aroma sings with oak & tropical rum, with a roasted, chocolatey note behind it. The flavor starts with the fruit-heavy rum character, followed by vanilla-y oak, chocolate milk, and toast. The rum returns in the finish, coating the tongue with bright spirit notes, before transitioning to a rich caramel & chocolate character. A very unique & delicious beer. Bottles available: 800. Price: $28+tax & BPT fee. Bottle limit: 2

MONSTERS' PARK AGED IN CARIBBEAN RUM BARRELS W/ VANILLA BEANS
We used vanilla beans from Madagascar, Tonga, and Tahiti to produce this stunner of a beer. The aroma pops with vanilla, oak, and chocolate. The flavor is loaded with vanilla--both from the floral end of the vanilla spectrum and the "vanilla ice cream" end--tiramisu, and dark chocolate. The finish is very rich; the vanilla makes the whole thing substantially more dessert-like. Exceptionally decadent. Bottles available: 750. Price: $30+tax & BPT fee. Bottle limit: 2

MONSTERS' PARK AGED IN NICARAGUAN RUM BARRELS W/ COCONUT & COCOA NIBS
This beer is not subtle. It pours pitch black with a menacingly dark head that dissipates very quickly due to the fat from the coconut. The flavor and aroma are completely saturated with coconut & chocolate, but blend harmoniously with the strong dark rum & roast malt notes. This beer is explosively flavorful and completely coats the palate with coconut, milk chocolate, toasted bread, dark honey, and roast malt. Truly amazing. Bottles available: 800. Price: $30+tax & BPT fee. Bottle limit: 2

MONSTERS' PARK AGED IN NICARAGUAN RUM BARRELS W/ RUM BARREL-AGED COFFEE
Truly one of the most unique and exciting beers we've made. For those of you who tried City of the Dead, this takes that experience to 11. Barrel-aged coffee aroma positively leaps out of the glass, combining with the molasses-y Nicaraguan rum character and dark roasted malt from Monsters' Park to produce one of the most complex aromas we've encountered. The flavor explodes on the palate: toasted marshmallows, milk chocolate, bright coffee, oak, and brown sugar-soaked rum. Incredibly flavorful. The barrel-aged coffee lingers for days, mixed with a big barrel character and loads of milk chocolate. A remarkable beer. Bottles available: 625. Price: $30+tax & BPT fee. Bottle limit: 2

Modern Times' Black House just showed up like everywhere in SF. I didn't get much out of it. But I'd love to get my hands on that Monster Park vertical, that sounds awesome.

Deschute's Black Butte Porter is like the go-to Porter in NorCal, in lots of (shitty) bars it's the only dark and non-Guiness beer on tap.

I wasn't super impressed with black house but it's the only dark beer the missus likes. The monster park Nicaraguan rum barrel and it's variants sounds damn good though.

Fresh squeezed IPA is good. When I worked at bevmo one guy came in every week to buy out our entire stock of it... every week for the whole time I worked there. So I had to start stashing a bottle in the back if I felt like having one :lol:

I've heard good things about the their Obsidian Stout, but haven't had a chance to try it yet.

The obsidian stout was always a little harder to find, but I thought it was better than the porter. Both of them were my everyday goto porter/stouts out there in Seattle. Wish they distributed here....

While Fresh Squeezed is good (not go out of your way good), I really think that Deschutes' best offering is Red Chair.

fresh squeezed and SN hop hunter are both examples of "fresh hopped beers" being made w Co2 extracted and frozen hop oil so they can make it year round.
