Why we're here...

Beer culture is coming of age. At any store, restaurant, bar, or friend's house you can now find at least a few good brews. In fact, there seem to be so many new beers, breweries and bars it's difficult to separate the good, the bad, and the mediocre.

If you're going spend $10 on one beer, what should you buy? If you're going to drive 2 hours to check out a brewery, what's worth your time? If you're going to plan a Friday night, what has a good selection and friendly atmosphere? We're here to help you answer these questions.

Dark Seas

Dark Seas is an Imperial Stout by the Mission Brewing Company of San Diego, CA.

I bought this at BevMo, it has an ABV of 10.5%.

The aroma has dark sugar(brown sugar/molasses), some prune/dark fruit, and whiffs of chocolate. The flavor has a full range from sweet dark fruit upfront to roasted and chocolate malts in the middle to a slightly sweet milk finish. The lactosse/milk taste picks up after a few gulps. A light roasted flavor lingers. The mouthfeel is creamy although the carbonation adds some bubbliness to the tongue. The body is heavy and thick.

Overall, this is a good Imperial Stout. I enjoy the full range of stout flavors.
