COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Sea Monster Imperial Stout is a new version of an old favorite. This hearty stout is black as the abyss and clocks in at a whopping 10% ABV, a real monster. The flavors of roasted coffee and bittersweet chocolate are complamented by a velvety smoothness from the addition of un-malted barley and oats. Colombus and Amarillo hops help to balance out the huge malt character of this flavor bomb. Be careful the alcohol is well hidden and will sneak up on you if you don’t watch out. Like most scary monsters, it can be a little intimidating, but have no fear.

valpoaj (707) - Valparaiso, Indiana, USA - MAR 10, 2016
Tap - Pours black - nice deep brown head that recedes slowly. Aroma is quite nice with a solid dose of bittering hops...lots of coffee, some chocolate (dark), malts obviously evident. Flavor is similarly tasty with a strong bitter component - not a bad thing in any way...coffee and chocolate are still apparent, but nothing really ’stands out’...this kept it from a higher rating in this category. Palate is medium to full bodied, not overbearing, and hides the alcohol nicely. Nice offering!
