COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Since its arrival in 1997, our Storm King Stout has enticed folks to “discover the dark intrigue” as its label suggests. While enjoying that great imperial stout, we have been intrigued by the myriad of flavors it exhibits, and encouraged to test the limits of perception and pleasure by adding to the rich experience of Storm King Stout. So here you have such a exploration, involving Storm King Stout aged in oak barrels that once matured Kentucky bourbon. Blended to perfection, this one is surely dark and intriguing!

48FanInCali (848) - California, USA - JUN 2, 2013
2011 Bomber. Pitch black pour with mocha head. Nose of coffee, roast, chocolate and a touch of bourbon. Taste follows in the coffee and roast side. Surprisingly very bitter and not from hops. Also quite sour. Bad bottle perhaps. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

marcus (8709) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAY 16, 2013
Bottle shared by bhensonb. Pours dark brown with a very attractive light brown head and a treacle and alcohol aroma. There is a chocolate, coffee, treacle and dark fruity flavor with and oak finish and a bourbon trail. Very complex.

750 c&c from timfoolery. Thanks guy! Pours black with a creamy/foamy tan head. Aroma is quite bourbon, oaky, dark fruity, treacle, chocolate. Med + body. Flavor is very nice chocolate/cacao, bourbon, vanilla, wood/oak. Finish is towards, but not reaching, dry with lots and lots of flavor. Fantastic beer.

jbruner (3783) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - APR 15, 2013
Pours a black brown from the bottle with no real head or lacing. Aroma of vanilla from the oak and booze. Taste was sweet bourbon barrel aged goodness, dark but thin. I suppose for a bba malt liquor this was pretty solid.

ketchepillar (1184) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - APR 15, 2013
2011. Very smooth palate, reminiscent of CCB 110k+OT, batch 2. Aroma is a bit soy saucy. Pretty hoppy still. Carafa special + burnt toast.

Beergeek23322 (2602) - Chesapeake, Virginia, USA - APR 12, 2013
February 2012. Rated from my backlog. 750 ml. corked bottle. Poured black with a tan head. The added oak is not over done as you can experience in so many similar beers. This one is a keeper.

HopRedHead (397) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAR 26, 2013
Pours pitch black with very minimal tan head and thin lacing. Bourbonesque nose with roasted caramel and chocolate malt aromas. Flavours are smooth with a medium body and light carbonation. Bourbon was less pronounced in the taste and the chocolate/dark fruit flavours more noticeable. Pretty tasty.

Good stout. Did not get a whole lot of bourbon, more like a standard imperial stout. A little thin on the body.

Uploading old ratings that were missing comments. One of my favorites. Huge bourbon, chocolate and roasted malt notes. Bottle ages really well. Heat drops a lot after about a year. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
