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!

Leighton (13826) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 31, 2012
Bottle at the Copenhagen Beer Celebration Tune-Up, London. Pours thick black with a creamy, beige head. Rich barrel aroma, some dark chocolate. Big sweet flavor with medium roast, dark cocoa, chocolate syrup, peat, tar and charcoal. Full bodied with average carbonation. Warm finish with lots of sugar chocolate syrup, definitely some alcohol and bourbon, dry and burnt wood. It’s a heavy beer without being outrageous. Nice and sweet, with lasting dark chocolate character. Excellent beer.
