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.

7/23/10. Big thanks to AskDrTodd for bringing this up to Tally! Big dark chocolate aroma with a hint of sour. Big chocolate aroma with a dash of coffee and hint of metallic notes. Can’t believe how drinkable this is for 10%.

DocLock (7502) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 17, 2010
Bomber from Smith’s, and get ya some while you can, because they are down to their last case and a half. Pours turbid black, with some ruby edges on the bottom concavature of my tulip glass, and 2f tan head that is well retained. Lokks just marvelous. Nose is roasty dark malt, cacao, molasses, earthy, hops. Tastes rich, complex, with a big dark patent malt bill matched by big cacao, huge hops, and some dark fruit. Gets a bit astringent and even more resiny hoppy late, and stays hefty on the palate and is a true heavyweight of beers.

lordeche (479) - Quincy, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 29, 2010
Pours black with a very light colored head for an imperial stout. Tons of roasted coffee, dark chocolate, and nutty roasted malts in the aroma. Flavor expounds on these notes, shifting between sweet molasses/dark fruit and bitter burnt malt and roasted coffee qualities. A beautiful nuttiness smooths out each sip. Palate is full with surges of prickly carbonation. Fantastic brew

jtclockwork (7114) - , New Jersey, USA - MAY 24, 2010
Pours black with small tan head. Nose is chocolate, roasted malts. Taste is chocolate, roasted malts and smooth vanilla finish. I agree with dickinsonbeer that there’s some fennel seed taste to it (as random of a spice as that sounds). Good stout, but not all that complex.

patrickfannon (1230) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 18, 2010
Bottle. 25.4 oz. Pours a deep, mahogany brown with a thin, sudsy, quickly fading head. Aroma of chocolate, sweet malts, barley, cocoa, pepper, and dry hops. Full bodied with a thick, peppery palate. Smooth, yet slightly warming finish. Great Imperial stout.
