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.

Thanks to whoever sent me this in trade, I’m way too lazy to look for it now, but at any rate... This was a really smooth imperial stout. Not quite as full-bodied as some, but delicious nonetheless.

douglas88 (6336) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 30, 2009
22oz bottle thanks to Odeed. Pours a very dark brown color with a nice large brown head. The aroma is roasted malts, rich chocolates, smooth hops. The flavor is smooth and easy despite the ABV; rich chocolates, roasted malts, caramel, espresso and milky elements. Very nice and quaffable.

Ungstrup (29850) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 28, 2009
Bottled. A pitch black beer with lazing brown head. The aroma is sweet with strong notes of roasted malt and alcohol. And so is the flavor added some chocolate - a bit like warm chocolate served at 10 degrees C - nice.

Pours black into a snifter. Mocha head conglomerates as it slowly recedes leaving spider lacing. Dry cocoa, oxiginated vanilla and soy aromas. Upfront creamy vanilla alcohol. Turning to milk chocolate and sour espresso and soy in the finish. A tad thin.
