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.

crazyvin (2026) - New York, USA - FEB 15, 2013
A nice black body with red highlights. A nice tan head that had good retention and nice lace. Aroma had a mix of roasted malts, and chocolate malts. A slight hint of smoke. Flavor had a nice balance of roasted coffee, and bittersweet chocolate. Some alcohol was present, but overall was well hidden. A nice dry finish, and good body to it. Nice mouth feel.

ChiGuy68 (570) - Illinois, USA - JAN 15, 2017
Tasted on tap at Crown Liquors in Chicago. It poured jet black with a light brown head leaving heavy lacing that streaks as you enjoy. Subtle chocolate hop aroma. Smooth and creamy taste with chocolate notes and a well hidden 10% ABV.

mbgrayson (741) - Anaconda, Montana, USA - JAN 13, 2017
Pours very dark brown, with a tan head. Aroma is malty with hints of chocolate. Taste is similar, with a fairly low level of sweetness. Not as complex as some, this is still a very good imperial stout. Thumbs up!

UXO (1654) - CANADA - JAN 4, 2017
Appearance: opaque black with deep ruby highlights, one fat finger of fluffy medium beige head, good retention and moderate lacing. (4/5) Aroma: cocoa, coffee, boozy dark fruit and red berries, hint of vanilla, pale malt, lightly earthy. (8/10) Taste: moderate-high sweet, moderate-high bitter, light metallic. (7/10) Palate: medium-full body dropping off to watery, moderate carbonation, lingering bitter and warming finish. (3/5) Not bad, but falls a little short. Theres a slight metallic tinge instead of a clean high ABV heat, and the body seems to fall off just a touch to a slightly watery finish. Im starting to think that oatmeal - somewhat counterintuitively - makes for a thinnish (imperial) stout. Bottom line, not as good as I was hoping for, but not bad. (15/20)

Bottle. Black in colour with moderate carbonation. Aromas are of red currant, chocolate, crispy toffee, and cookie dough. Flavors are of dark chocolate, vanilla, pale malt and earth. Medium bodied, and quite clean for an imperial stout.

commonmac (1112) - 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.
