Has a medium-full body with a creamy mouthfeel, and slightly boozy, bitter, semi dry, roasty finish. overall, a tasty and smooth imp. stout.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Sea Monster pours black. Pitch black. A small tan head forms but quickly disappears. Right off the bat youíll notice this beer has a really sweet nose to it. One of the sweeter stouts Iíve smelled in a while. Itís the dark chocolate doing itís thing. A decent amount of roasted malt and a smaller amount of coffee. The taste is more of the same. The sweetness cuts through everything else. The coffee leaves a bit of a bitter ending that sits at the back of the throat. Mouthfeel was really nice. It was more towards a heavier, thicker mouthfeel. A little bit on the flat side. Just goes down your throat with ease

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber to stella artois chalice- Probably sat on room temp shelf for quit a while. Blackish plum with some hidden red highlights.Short head ,ring of foam little lacing.
Smell of sweetness, dark chocolate,mildly bready pastryness,light coffee,some dark fruit, a bit of butter and very subtle but noticable hops.
Taste is somewhat sweet at first with dark roasted malt pretty roasty but not too much,somewhat smooth but the roast roughs that up some. More coffee in taste than darkchocolate and a bittersweetness overall,lingering coffee flavor and the bittering seems herbal but somewhat a citrus grapefruit. A bit tangy finish.Maybe some coffee astringency in the finish.

This doesnít smell as great as it tastes. Lots of thick chewy characters, but not too alcoholic in the flavor. Just a slightly off aroma.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at Publich House Temecula. Thick viscous black pour. Aroma is of chocolate, coffe and alcohol. Very thick on the palate, but drinkable. Comparable to Speedway Stout in that way. Dark chocolate notes on the finish.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bitter yet balanced. A bitterness based on coffee and hops. Black with red highlights, and lace sheets. Great roast, coffee aromas. A sipper. Another great creation from this brewery.
