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 dont watch out. Like most scary monsters, it can be a little intimidating, but have no fear.

22 oz. bottle shared by bsuedekum at the STLHops Pinball Party. Thanks, Blake! Pours a cloudy brown color with a small beige head. Aroma of chocolate, cola, sweet and roasty malts, nuts, fudge, and a hint of tobacco. Flavor of chocolate, roasted and toasted malts, coffee, earth, and cocoa beans. Medium-bodied, with a malty, sweet mouthfeel and mellow carbonation. Solid imperial stout.

22oz bottle. Pours a jet black color with a tan head and some lacing. Aroma is roasty, coffee, chocolate. Heavy on the palate with soft, creamy carbonation. Flavor is sweet up front, malty, roasty, chocolate, a little alcohol, with a clean bitter coffee finish. This is a big stout, but for me it is very drinkable.

Bomber poured into my chalice style glass- huge roasted aroma- so inviting. Appearance is perfect, dark brown/black, big brown one finger froth head. Taste is so wonderfully balanced; chocolate toffee with candied or roasted oats. So delicious and the palate is creamy, chewy and thick. Me Gusta!

On tap @ Pizza Port OB. This brew is super nice. Syrupy, sweet, molasses, malt, and licorice on the nose and flavor. There was also some oat on the nose, and dark chocolate on the flavor. Definitely sweet, but pretty well-balanced and had an awesome thick palate on it.

Pours as it should with the color of a midnight sky. Throws off a pancake like head that slowly recedes like concert goers after a Van Halen gig. Very mild aromatics exposing its weak side. Medium full nectar with abundant carbonation creating a cotton like texture. Heavily roasted coffee beans are ground down, throw in bitter cocoa, I mean bitter and mild touch of sweetness. This brew is slightly abrasive like an abrupt awareness that a yeti is creeping up on your campsite to steal your jerky. This brew evokes adjectives like strong, bold, unyielding, mysterious, penetrating, smothering, despondent, unfair trial, Davy Jones locker, punish, brutality, scorn, etc..... you get the picture, dont you?

iugrad93 (265) - Indiana, USA - AUG 18, 2011
Black pour, thick tan head, above avg lacing. Aromas of coffee, chocolate, notes of citrus. Taste sweet with roasted bitterness. Smooth and fairly creamy. Initial carbonation is lively then quickly levels off to suit the style. Overall, this is a nice tasting stout, but nothing really stands out. Its a solid brew and one I would have again.

In a glass from the bomber. Aroma is that of alcohol. Flavour is much better, chocolate sweetness to it. palate is good, and appearance was ok but not very good head retention or lacing. Overall a OK imperial stout. There are definitely more serious contenders out there I think.

Bomber from liquor depot Tampa. Pours a deep, dark brown with a small light tan head. Nose is a bit of chocolate, some light coffee or cafe con leche, bits of caramel, a little booze, and hops. Pronounced grapefruit and slight pine hops. Flavor is like hoppy chocolate with some coffee. Pronounced grapefruit and some pine hops as well. Great balance and no sense of the 10% abc. Medium in body, and very good overall.
