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 donít watch out. Like most scary monsters, it can be a little intimidating, but have no fear.

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

Bottle @ Home. The pourís black with a medium tan head. The nose is roasted coffee and bitter chocolate, notes of raisin and caramel too. The taste is mildly bitter chocolate, lightly boozy. Oatmeal, some chocolate-dipped fruits. Slightly hot hoppy finish. The bodyís full and oily. Soft carbonation. Easy to drink. Overall, a really nice beer. I drank this alongside speedway, and this felt like a shaggier beer. Still great, though.

Rainy day - no intention of going out - so letís crack this one. Not an overly complex RIS, but inviting and clean. Soft and luxurious milk and dark chocolate, dark fruit. Soft, smooth body, very clean as mentioned before. Same flavours as the nose, with a hint of roast. Just like their IPAs this is clean, flavourful and elegant.

mcberko (14401) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 26, 2012
22 oz. bottle, pours black with a medium tan head. Aroma is quite roasted, with some wood and a hint of dark fruit (cherries). The dark fruits, especially cherries, are very dominant in the flavour profile, taking centre stage, followed by subdued roasted malt. The dark fruits stand out. Medium-bodied and medium complexity - pretty fruity for an impie stout. Good, but not overly my thing.

thunderhops (224) - Vermont, USA - JUN 16, 2012
Pours jet black with tan head that fades to small ring with some lace. Not an overwhelming aroma but coffee, malts, alcohol do make it out. Lots of flavor does come through, bitter chocolate, coffee, light smokiness, malts, sweetness. full body, sticky, long sweet chocolate and coffee finish

Bottle to snifter. Pours dark brown black with a sudsy khaki head that fades to a soapy collar. Aroma has good dark roasted malt and chocolate scents as well as some coffee and some slight licorice. Taste has a licorice roasted malt flavor with subtle chocolate and espresso. Palate is full and chalky with a dry finish. Very good Imperial Stout! I just like the creaminess to show more.

Overall a good oatmeal stout- gas the characteristic smoothness, with coffee and chocolate flavors, a sweet finish and nicely balanced hops. In my mind, pales in comparison with the victory at sea. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pouts black with a brown head and aroma of roasted malt. Taste is sweet, of dark chocolate, roasted malt, and liquorice with a smooth finish. Alcohol is well hiddwell hidden throughout, very drinkable, good imperial stout.
