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.

BeerRenter76 (654) - Texas, USA - MAR 19, 2016
Originally rated on 8/17/08. An interesting brew this one. Pours a oil black body with a dark tan ’1’ finger cap, Aromas of expresso, burnt malts and even a little fruit, flavor followed suit with a hint of chocolate, also there was a flavor i couldnt place on the initial sip. Mouthfeel was creamy and smooth, i couldnt taste the alcohol until the last sip. The hops were the interesting part of this beer giving it the hint of fruit and a bitting aftertaste. Overall its is a good beer, thats worth a try.

Rather dark appearance with practically no head. Complex tastes of bakers’ chocolate, coffee, chili, burnt toast, sweet malt, alcohol and floral hops. Heavy body, smooth carbonation and a lasting aftertaste of bittersweet hops. Tasty, but a bit too dry

larsga (7102) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 12, 2016
Big beige head. Opaque black body goes hazy deep dark red toward edge. Mealy spicy roasty aroma with wooden notes. Sweet-dry roasty mineraly taste with chocolatey notes. Fullish body. Sharpish mouthfeel. Dry resiny spicy teak aftertaste with mineraly chocolatey notes. Clean, powerful-tasting, harmonic. A good beer. (0.355l bottle, from Systembolaget, Torp.)

Biroholik (685) - Sosnowiec, Poland, POLAND - FEB 11, 2016
Piwo wypite z okazji 300 polubień Bloga Biroholik.
Chmiel: Pacific Northwest
Kolor: Czarny. Słabo prześwitujący.
Piana: Gęsta, kremowo-beżowa, czapowata o drobnooczkowej strukturze. Bardzo długo utrzymuje się na szkle. Lacing jest tak piękny, że nie sposób prawie znaleźć czyste miejsce w górnej części szkła.
Zapach : Czuć mocne chmielenie. W aromacie nuty kawowo-czekoladowe. Mało słodkich akcentów. Gdzie niegdzie subtelne akordy lukrecji i karmelu. W tle zaznacza się delikatna wędzonka.
Smak: Bardzo aksamitny, harmonijny. Dużo chmielowych nut, ciemne słody i kawa na finiszu. Pomiędzy tym wszystkim lewitują sosnowe-żywiczne smaczki. Goryczka wysoka, minimalnie drażniąca przełyk. Alkohol wyważony, rozkosznie musuje na języku.
Wysycenie: Niskie w kierunku średniego.
Podsumowanie:
Bardzo smaczny Imperial Stout z kultowego amerykańskiego Browaru Victory Brewing. Ekipa z VB mogłaby przybić piątkę z chłopakami z Doctor Brew, bo najwyraźniej też są fanami mocnego chmielenia. Słodowość tego Imperialnego Stouta nie jest przesadzona, jest na akceptowalnym poziomie, chwilami nawet piwo jest zbyt wytrawne. Nutki kawowe , wędzone i czekoladowe nadają mu tego pożądanego sznytu. Piwo jest bardzo bogate i treściwe, rozgrzewa serce i ciało ;)

Draft. It was black poured with a thin tan head. It was served very cold so the aroma is muted somewhat, however as it warmed it did not offer anything more than the roasted malt and dark chocolate flavorings. A little thickness on the tongue with a very smooth finish.

Pours black with a thick and inviting tan foam. Aroma of roasted malt, bitter chocolate, licorice and dark fruit. Full body, creamy feel, average carbonation. Taste is smoky with lots of dark roasted coffee, pine needles and some alcohol. The long lasting finish is wooden and quite dry.
