Ballast Point Sea Monster

Today has been a productive day to say the least. Did a bunch of crap at work. Got home and spent a few hours working on a project I’m doing for school. Really happy with how today has gone. Tomorrow is going to be equally awesome as I am taking a trip to visit my buddies from The Best Beer Blog. We will be doing a round-table video review of a very special beer (hint).

Let’s not get ahead of ourselves though. I have a delicious beer in front of me now that deserves some attention! It’s my first-ever Ballast Point beer – Sea Monster imperial stout.

It’s a pretty standard imperial stout. Chalk-full of roasted bitterness but well balanced with thick toffee sweetness. The bitterness further dissipates as the brew warms up. On a related note, as it warms you don’t get any of the 10% ABV in the flavor.

Overall, a decent imperial stout, although nothing to write home about.

On a final note, I realized that I hadn’t played a game of 20 questions on the LIBA Facebook page in some time, so I decided to play tonight using this beer. If you have a minute, check it out here.
