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.

commonmac (1091) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 2, 2016
Tap at New Bohemia in Uptown. 10oz pour into snifter style glass. Pitch black in color with minimal tan head. Aroma is sweet caramel/toffee with accents of candied dark fruit. Reminds me of something barrel aged. Taste is big roasty chocolate and heavy alcohol bite. This one clearly wants to assert itself as an imperial stout. There are plenty of burnt caramel sugar elements combining with bourbon alcohol burn. This almost loses sight of imparting flavor at the expense of being big and boozy. There are better options in the style.
