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.

Overall flavor is dark and sweet, roasty and lingering, clean yet bitter and respectful keeping me interested throughout the whole experience. Flavor alone makes this highly worthy a try.

Marsiblursi (3076) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUL 27, 2012
(Bottle) Pours black with a creamy, nougat coloured head. The aroma holds black currant tea, tart blueberries, tart fruits, herbs, citrus, pine, wood, creamy chocolate, cocoa, mild espresso, liquorice dark bread, and asphalt. The flavour is light to medium sweet, tiny acidic with notes of black currant, citrus, herbs, cocoa, chocolate, asphalt, coffee and tar-ish ash. The mouthfeel is soft, round and fairly velvety with a light carbonation. Lots of black currant, balanced American hops and aggressive yet smooth roast on the finish. Medium to full bodied.

Slipstream (2464) - USA - JUL 23, 2012
Sweet, grainlike aroma with some herbs and a dash of lemongrass. Rich, chocolatey pour. The flavor has lots of dark chocolate, pumpernickel, and toasted malt, and a touch of bourbon - very rich and superbly balanced. The hops are present but don’t overwhelm. Another excellent brew from BP - this is up there with Victory at Sea.

Ktwse (4051) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 21, 2012
Pours black with a fairly small tan head. Aroma is standard imperial stout fare: roasted barley malt, coffee, dark chocolate. Similarly the taste, with only a hint of bitterness and a sweet, thick long finish. Body is rich and oily. Not as big a fan of this as I am of their IPA:s. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
