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.

Pour is the color Iíd expect to see 20,000 leagues under the sea... frothy head. Thick enough to be a stout. Im getting burnt coffee which is disappointing.

Bouteille. Saveur Bière. Robe noire, mousse beige crémeuse . Nez sur le caramel, le chocolat, le houblon et la prune. Bouche ronde et puissante. Arômes de sucre brun, de chocolat amer et de café torréfié, bien marqué par la fleur de houblon . Finale sèche et florale sur le réglisse. Une stout de caractère typée sur le houblon américain. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Countbeer (4325) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - JUL 20, 2014
Bottle: Thanks Stawn: Served in a Chouffe glass: Medium to smaller sized creamy vanilla beige light brown foamy head on top of a deep dark brown to black colored beer. Aroma has a strong (pils) malty tone which makes this beer having it a somewhat crispy aroma. Thereís honey, mocha, marzipan, roast, some coffee, some chocolate, caramel and hints of something like marshmellows and vinous notes. Flavour is a bit strong in taste and spice (alcohol) but on the other hand, this makes it a good stout! Thereís a mix of cough syrup with some coffee, bitters, malt toast/roast, some caramel, wood roast, light sticky, raisin and some caramel and light bay leaf tints. Aftertaste is bitter, sticky, roast, spicy and some bay leaf/malt/herbal toast tones. Low carbo, creamy mouthfeel, full bodied and a spicy creamy texture. A good and bit ordinary stout, yet balanced and strong.

Palme (3237) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 17, 2014
Sampled from a 0.65l bottle @ RBNG 2014. As close to black as you get without calling it black this. It also has a small quickly sidesticking brown top. Tad milder nose than I had expected. It it quite roasted and itís giving me elements of licorice, leather, salty soy and mild chocolate. Smells quite nice this. Lovely rich and strong flavors. Lots of bitter chocolate with loads of licorice. Salty licorice and soy. Gliding oily in the mouth and softly prickling on t bubbles. Lots and lots of flavor. Yeah, its not bad at all this. 15.02.2014

sudomorph (517) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 12, 2014
UPDATED: JUL 15, 2014 Bomber bottle. Pours black with a thin head. Aroma has notes of dark malts, chocolate, a hint of smoke and caramel, and a bit of dark fruits. Really nice. Taste is a bit sweet but balanced with some dark fruits, caramel, roasted malts, a hint of bitter chocolate, and an smooth, slightly coffee finish. Not really a lot of alcohol. Really well done. Full most with a medium carbonation. Smooth in the mouth with a dry finish. Overall a big beer. Roasted malts with a caramel sweetness and a hint of coffee. Yum!

Leighton (10543) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 12, 2014
Bottle shared in London - thanks to Caspar. Pours black-brown with a frothy, off-white head. The nose has sugary malts, chocolate, soft roast, dark fruits. Medium sweet flavor with raisins, bittersweet chocolate, burnt earth, torched wood. Medium to full bodied with fine to average carbonation. More bitter cocoa to finish, dried dark fruits, char, strong roast, burnt toast, some alcohol warmth. Very solid.
