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 doesnt stand out and thats 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.

Roasty malts and dark chocolate with a bit of dark roast coffee. Really nice and warm. Not sure if this is indeed 12 percent but if it is it hides it quite well.

mcberko (15431) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 29, 2016
12 oz. bottle, pours a jet black with a small but substantial brown head. Aroma is robust, with tons of rich roasted malt upfront, followed by unsweetened dark cocoa and some boozy woody qualities in there. Flavour is rich and robust, with truckloads of roasted malt dominating, followed by more subdued notes of dark cocoa and maybe a touch of toasted caramel. Fairly low residual sweetness. Robust and very well-constructed. Excellent.

lownote (556) - Austin, Alabama, USA - AUG 13, 2016
Sweet malty and a little bread aroma. Light tan head that fades immediately with a very black body. Thin bodied but still very sweet. Lots of cocoa flavor in there delicious. Sweet tasting but not even a hint of cloyingness. Very good.

ABUSEDGOAT (2653) - California, USA - JUN 10, 2016
Black pour, tan head, good lace/retention. Aroma is chocolate, roast, darker fruit, grapefruit. Medium to full body, pretty straightforward flavors and well made - but not all that exciting either.

BVery (9931) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - JUN 9, 2016
Tap at Cask Republic. Dark dense pour with a smallish head. Rich aroma of roast / char and mild anise. Taste seems a little under flavored initially, but then a rich char note emerges. Not sweet. Full palate.

ineedbeer (1981) - Oakland, California, USA - MAY 7, 2016
Poured from a 375 ml bottle, 2015 vintage. Aroma is fairly chocolate forward and rich with some light roast notes. Medium dark fruit notes with plum, prune, cherry and raisin. Some light alcohol notes with some bourbon and lighter oak notes. Pours black with some dark brown hues on the edges and a large, thick, dark mocha head that slowly collapses into itself. Moderately high to high lacing and moderate length legs. Flavor is rich and somewhat sweet with some moderate chocolate notes and medium light roast character. Moderate dark fruit notes similar to in the aroma. Some moderate bitterness with light floral and grassy hop notes. Light bourbon and oak notes with hints of alcohol spice. Some lingering chocolate and dark fruit in the finish with a hint of acidity. Mouthfeel is medium full bodied with medium high carbonation. Low, but present astringency and medium low alcohol warmth. Overall, a nice beer but not amazing. Too much dark fruit, a bit too astringent and bitter. Light acidic twang.
