With a huge, Pacific Northwest hop aroma & character upfront, Storm King subsides into massive, roast malt complexity. More flavor than mere words can adequately describe. Rich and substantial, it will warm your heart.

ARH (558) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 30, 2014
12oz bottle, poured into a snifter. Sweet and dark aromas of berries are prevalent with supporting notes of caramel syrup, cream, baked milk chocolate, some spice, a slight burnt note, a slight wood note, and caramel. It’s an opaque, dark motor oil brown with a soft, soapy head. A thick ring is retains with an island and ok lace is left behind. The full bodied beer is a well balanced, medium high sweet and bitter. It’s thick,waxy and sticky with a gritty carbonation. The flavors are chocolate covered with undertones of berries and bitter citrus with a mellow alcohol warmth and roasted finish. There’s some milky caramel notes in there that come through later in the drink with a dry clove / chalky feel. The bitterness lingers a bit and the aftertaste is smokey, ashy, and chalky with chocolate flavoring.

Draft @ Bocktown, PIT. Nice roasty aroma, maybe a little too hoppy. Jet black color, with nice tight bubbles in a thin beige head. Flavor is more like a black IPA, than IS. Full bodied. Overall a good beer, but not really for an IS.

goodmedicine (3) - Newport Beach, California, USA - NOV 19, 2014 does not count
like other commenters suggested, this read more like an imperial black ipa to me. extremely dark and oily with a light beige head. first taste of coffee and caramel followed by a heavy hop bitterness that reminds be of a good double ipa. malty throughout. don’t drink stouts much but this is yummy!

Caramel smell, coffee taste, dark as a moonless night looks, oil slick mouthfeel. Like liquid burnt toffee flowing down the throat. Rated by BrewTom

furthur (211) - Eagle River, Alaska, USA - OCT 29, 2014
Bottle, black body, walnut colored head, good lacing. Aroma of whiskey, raisin, molasses, dark malt. Taste is bitter malt/citrus rind, hops sprucy resin. Palate is smooth, not super rich, carbonation subdued. This is more of an imperial black IPA.

Wow, is it stout , a black IPA , or something completely new? Biscuit malts mingle with old hops on the aroma. A luxurious mouthfeel, and the warmth of its abv give a supreme winter beer.
