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.

fiulijn (14978) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 5, 2013
Black color with small sized brownish head. Aroma of pure chocolate and roasted malts. Full bodied; smooth mouthfeel; lean, with very moderate sweetness; roasted malt and dark chocolate flavor, a bit too much tar and liquorice though; strong bitterness, some hop resins can be perceived in the final.
Good beer, not exciting though.
