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.

Tap. Thick black with one finger head. Bitter dark chocolate, black licorice and lots of roasted malt. Not really my thing, but it’s really well done.

tricksta_p (3016) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - JAN 14, 2016
Bottle at home. Aroma is oats, dark malt, roast, chocolate, dark fruity notes, liquorice, some coffee, hint of vanilla. Flavour is moderate to medium sweet with some roasty bitterness in the finish. Body is medium to full. This is no Victory At Sea, but it’s a delicious Imperial Stout regardless.

SpongeRuiner (1092) - Michigan, USA - JAN 9, 2016
Very dark pour. A frothy mocha head. Bubbly lacing. A chocolatey oat nose with a slight hop bitterness. Fresh roasty oat flavor with a smooth chocolate flavor. A little hop bitterness goes along. Hidden alcohol with a solid drinkability. Pretty good.

bulldogops (1681) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 3, 2016
Rating #1558 20.03.2015 - Birthday Brew Tour Stop #2 - Beautiful dark brown pour with a fairly foamy tan head with mild lacing. Aroma is chocolate, coffee, espresso. Taste is bubbly mouth feel, bold earth and coffee layered with hints of vanilla and chocolate. Amarillo hop bite provides bitterness that rounds this out and keeps the abv in check.

ebone1988 (1034) - Dearborn, Michigan, USA - DEC 31, 2015
Aroma is oatmeal, roasted malt, some chocolate and coffee, light. Appearance is black, poured a decently large light tan head, and poured thin. Taste is sweet malt, roasted malt, dark fruit, oatmeal, coffee, chocolate, some bitterness, the booze is very well hidden. Mouthfeel is oily, medium body and carbonation. Overall, it?s just ok.

halfonit (1303) - Fall River, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 15, 2015
Pours pitch black with a caramel colored head. Aroma is of roasty/toasty malts, wood, booze, and a little bit of coffee in the background. Nice and heavy palate. Flavor is of big time malts. Nice toastiness and nuttiness. Bittersweet chocolate and oak also present. Leaves a big toasted malt and chocolate finish. Yet another good beer from these guys.

@ Basunen 15-11-14: välsmakande men ganska enkel. Tydlgia rostade toner, lite söt lakrits gott men inte bäst. Lite tunn munnkänsla.
