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.

halfonit (1259) - Fall River, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 15, 2015
Pours pitch black with a caramel colored head. Aroma is of roasty/toasty malts, wood, booze, and a little bit of coffee in the background. Nice and heavy palate. Flavor is of big time malts. Nice toastiness and nuttiness. Bittersweet chocolate and oak also present. Leaves a big toasted malt and chocolate finish. Yet another good beer from these guys.

@ Basunen 15-11-14: välsmakande men ganska enkel. Tydlgia rostade toner, lite söt lakrits gott men inte bäst. Lite tunn munnkänsla.

Maistiainen 0,33 l pullosta @ OPP. Varsin samea tummanruskea. Tuoksussa paahteista mallasta, alkoholia, jotain maanläheistä, kahvia vähän, mustaherukkaa. Maussa miellyttävää pehmeän paahteista mallasta, humalaa löytyy myös, mustaherukkaa.

ElCapitan22 (299) - Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 3, 2015
Pours a jet black color with no head retention, but that is expected with the high ABV. There is nice lacing here too. Smells like melted bitter chocolate and coffee. Tastes slightly bitter, but strongly of chocolate. Finishes smooth and leaves you wanting more. Awesome!

FROTHINGSLOSH (5768) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 3, 2015
Sampled on draft at Hou Thou this beer poured a black color with a large foamy tan head that left great lacing. The aroma was cola, anise and dark fruits. The flavor was toasty and malty with a strong anise and floral hop presence and hints of chocolate and malted milk. Fairly boozy. Very long finish. Moderately full bodied. Decent.

caesar (5971) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - OCT 29, 2015
Bottle from Firma Bier, large sample. Dark color, short frothy brown head. Aroma of roast, dark bread, oatmeal cookie, bit spicy, touch of red fruit. Quite sweet in taste with a decent amount of roast. Chewy sweetness makes it a bit sticky on the palate. Plain basic oatmeal imperial stout.

Sdaniel90 (589) - Mexico City, MEXICO - OCT 22, 2015
Bottle, 650ml. Opaque dark brown/ruby with a frothy brown head. Complex aromas of roasted caramel, dried fruits, dark chocolate, spices, alcohol. Medium to robust bodied with moderate to fizzy carbonation. Not sweet, with a subtle earthy bitterness. Fiery roasted character with a bitter fruity and alcohol finish.

Bottle, 650ml. Dark brown with a minimal red hue and a small brown head. Aroma is of dark chocolate, mint chocolate, coffee, spices and alcohol. Taste is bitter with an alcoholic finish . Considerable carbonation and some astringency. Aftertaste reminds me of black coffee. Smooth and with a high ABV, but well masked.
