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.

Imperial stout with the addition of oatmeal helps smooth out this monster. Abv is well hidden, too well. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cybercat (3800) - Georgia, USA - FEB 1, 2015
Pours warm coffee-brown with a thick head on the light side of tan. Aroma has roast malt, mocha, molasses, and subtle toffee notes. Flavor is, WHOA, a monster! Bold smoky, quality coffee, semi-sweet chocolate, roast malt, molasses and caramel flavors flow across the palate and leave a lasting impression of a world-class RIS. Thick, heavy texture has decent fizz, and goes down the pipes well. Challenge this monster.
