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.

Sikash (240) - North Carolina, USA - MAR 3, 2013
Poured from tap into tullip glass. Pours a nice jet black color with a tan light head. Aroma is nice and roasted but kind of light overall with some coffee notes. Flavor is initially bitter with roasted coffee notes and a hint of chocolate. There doesn’t seem to be much on the backend. Maybe mostly alcohol. Mouthfeel is full and carbonation is average. Overall a delicious stout.

Samuel214 (554) - SWEDEN - SEP 17, 2016
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 (234) - 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.

Svart med ett gult skum. Ganska snäll imperial Stout, rätt torr och saknar djup i smakerna ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Turtles (1983) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 1, 2016
650ml bottle from Systembolaget. Near the black with a creamy tan head that disappears quickly and completely, only some lacing. Sweet chocolate aroma with roasted barley, sweet licorice and fruity notes. Medium bodied, medium carbonated. Dark chocolate taste also a bit fruity and hoppy, oats and roasted barley. Mild chalky finish.
