COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Very nice. Good roast. Moderate hops. So far I’ve liked everything I’ve had from Victory.

Zekada (368) - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - FEB 22, 2015
Bottle from Systembolaget. Aroma is a bit hoppy but has an overwhelming feeling of roasted malts, chocolate and vanilla. Aroma is very complex and rich. Pours black with a beige head. Taste is rich and complex of malts, chocolate, vanilla, coffee and a hint of bitter hops. Palate is full though could be even richer. Overall a really nice beer, even though it isn’t impressive - just solid.

willisread (388) - Tokyo, JAPAN - FEB 21, 2015
12oz bottle from Deguchiya in Naka-meguro. Poured into a snifter. Oil slick black with a medium-sized soapy beige head. Strong hop-forward aroma with a roasted nose. Currant, raisin, prune, fennel all present with a strong toasted cacao nib and roasted coffee flavor as well. Full bodied with medium carbonation. Slightly sweet and bitter finish.

12 oz bottle, pours black moderate tan head.. The aroma of hops hit me right away, which was unexpected, then the roasted malt. Flavor of bitter coffee and cocoa. This brew was thinner than expected with lively carbonation and a bitter finish. This brew seemed to be a bit different from most Imperial Stouts, but I liked it. I look for something else from Victory.

Sigmund (5461) - Tau, NORWAY - FEB 12, 2015
355 ml bottle, Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV is 9.1%. Pitch black colour, moderate tan head. Fine aroma with the expected roasty notes, coffee, dark chocolate and liquorice, hints of leather, blending in with the fruity notes of West Coast hops. Medium sweet flavour, roasty notes galore, strong coffee, dark bitter chocolate and liquorice, again blending nicely with fruity hops. Bitter finish. A great beer!

fezzy (93) - California, USA - FEB 11, 2015
This beer is a massive blast of roasted malt, big and bold but surprisingly sharp and tempered by bitterness, which is what I do and don’t like about this beer at once. While almost too sharp, the deep roasty flavor attains balance through IBUs and bitter chocolate notes. Aroma is interestingly quite different from what I get on my palate, with aromatic hopping and dark fruits that get lost in the big malt profile once it hits my tongue. Though rather oily in body, it is quite drinkable for a big imperial stout and could not be accused of being too sweet. Very good.

Pours black with a khaki head. Roasted malt, chocolate, coffee, anise, dark fruit and hop aroma. Roasted malt, chocolate, coffee, pine, earthy hop, anise, fig, raisin, vanilla and some alcohol flavors. Full body and average carbonation. Roasted malt, chocolate and hop finish.

Vanilla, chocolate, and fruity hops aroma. Taste of red berries, cocoa, vanilla, and cappuccino. Nice aftertaste.

TychoJames (330) - Örebro, SWEDEN - FEB 7, 2015
Flaska systembolaget. Svart kulör med ljusbrunt skum. Halvsöt doft med kaffe, choklad och mosig frukt. Smaken drar starkt åt det rostade malthållet med bitter choklad och lite nötter. Besk med torr avslutning. Ganska frän och smått obalanserad.
