Captain Lawrence Brewing Company Frost Monster

“Very well rounded and balanced. Sweet and bitter, hint of lactose, tons of 70 percent cacao dark chocolate. Earthy hops flavor with plenty of hops bitterness, too. It’s like a shot of espresso with a backbone of cocoa and alcohol. Roast and hops cruise through aggressively but do not overpower the essence of what an imperial stout is supposed to be. Tobacco tar, anise, coffee liqueur and old-school bitter American hops have all made roll call.”
