Notes / Commercial Description:
Our Sea Monster Imperial Stout explores the darkest reaches of the traditional oatmeal stout.

Backed with a perfect hop balance, you’ll soon discover this is one monster of mythic proportions.

Just an awesome stout. Awesome. Incredibly smooth, and no hint of alcohol at 10.2% which is an amazing feat. Please pick this up if you can find it. It will be well worth it to you.

Sent to me by Ballast Point itself! Yes, Ballast Point sent me beer after I had outdated Sculpin. This was the last of it, and AWESOME. They sent me 2 six packs of Sculpin and this in bomber form. Amazing beer.

I don't usually like stouts. Loathe Guinness and others that are too heavy for my taste. This was awesome!!

Warm inviting chocolate, coffee tones upon opening.

Taste is SO SMOOTH. Extremely drinkable and tasty. This beer in their line-up doesn't get the publicity of Sculpin, but it is just as great in it's own way. Get some. Do yourself a favor. Great beer.
