COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Deep and dark as a cold winter night… The Frost Monster is lurking. This beast of an ale started out as a pilot batch concept by packaging line veteran Justin Perrone. Thinking of his own monster (dog) “Frost” he wanted to make a beer that had intense flavor, aroma and strength. Working with Brewmaster Scott Vaccaro and Head Brewer Scott Tobin they came up with an Imperial Stout only befitting its title.

SENSORY PROFILE
Brewed with a massive amount of malt to give it the rich, roasted and smokey flavors expected of such an ale. Black in color with a head as white as the beast itself. Drink it this winter or lay some down for winters to come.

Nice example of a Imperial Stout. Very drinkable even with a 12% ABV. A distinct flavor doesn’t stand out and that’s not bad thing. By that I mean there is not a chocolate, coffee or a roasted flavor that is singularly dominating. It just means it is a beer that is well rounded and crafted very well. Really balanced for an Imperial Stout.

Heavy malts. Bittersweet, roasty, and smokey. Boozes shows in flavor more than i typically like. Study yet active carbonation. Our after taste. Not one i enjoy. If the booze was more subdued, it might have been a different review.

DSG (7485) - Tel Aviv, - MAR 18, 2015
Bottle sample at a tasting at Dancing Camel Florentin. Thanks David Cohen. Black with a brown head. Aroma of coffee, roast, a bit of licorice and some booziness. Bittersweet roasty flavor, kinda boozy, with coffee, roastiness, some dark chocolate and a bit of licorice. Medium to full-bodied. A bit too boozy.

Sammy (9199) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 14, 2015
Big good flavour, well roasted, a tad smokey. A big beer, drinkable, yet alcohol well hidden. Black bodied with 3/8" inch brown foam retained, above average mouthfeel.

BrewBoxer (2332) - New York, New York, USA - FEB 16, 2015
Bottle at keg no 229. Deep black color with no head. Taste is sweet and extremely malty with an interesting aftertaste. Doesn't come off as an imperial stout

alobar (2969) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 13, 2015
Thick black pour with a creamy tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee, licorice, and anise. Roasted malt flavor with coffee, caramel, and touch of hops flavor with some booze at the end. Phenomenal lacing. Huge beer.

Slipstream (2146) - USA - FEB 12, 2015
Not the best label - the ol’ burning beer barrel with a bear or bull-like creature standing by. The aroma is unassuming, but the taste is pretty full and strong. It tastes sweet when cold, but gets more hoppy and savory at room temperature. Grains, sweet coffee, a sprinkle of sharp hops that turn into a tingling finish. Not the best thing in the captain’s cabinet, but still impressive.

rumproasts (3553) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - FEB 10, 2015
Bottle. Black with one finger head. Huge chocolate malt with substantial bitter roast. Smoke and faint soy sauce. Hint of black licorice. Complex flavors. Just a bit boozy.
