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.

Enjoy by 22FEB14 Pours black with a transient tan quilt. Smells of barley, graham, hops (piney), some molasses, some sweet malt syrup. Flavor is a little fruity with a bit of prune coming through and some less than appealing esters. A little boozey too. Not impressed flavor wise. Medium on thin with higher carb and a dry finish. Overall a beer that I’m not impressed with, even less so given the pedigree of their usual lineup.

Flaska från SB, beställningssortiment. Kolsvart med fingerhögt brunbeiget skum. Doft av svarta vinbär, fruktkola, toffee, kaffe, enbärsris och en gnutta chark. Något större kropp som är len av havren. Smakbilden inleds med tydliga inslag av lakrits och viol. Utöver detta snygga toner av kola, toffee, svarta vinbär, inlagda körsbär och kakdeg. Kompletteras med bra beska och avslutas i toner av mörk choklad. Jämn och välkomponerad - blir bättre och bättre för varje klunk jag tar. Påminner något om Great Divides Yeti, vilket är en komplimang på alla sätt. Ruskigt bra!

This is one heck of a beer! Pitch black pour with moderate lasting lacing. Aroma doesn’t leave much to imagination, as it’s all about the flavour. There’s heavy notes of coffee followed by rich, smooth chocolate, leaving a long lasting aftertaste on the palate. This was excellent.

fuzzcro (254) - Illinois, USA - SEP 5, 2016
Nice, pleasant aroma. Attractive nearly black pour with a dark tan healthy head that lases as if it has diamond chips sprinkled in it. There is a tobacco flavor to this one...quite prominent really. It’s not sweet. Thick and smooth and very nearly a perfect stout.
