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.

tfredvik (1555) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 10, 2016
Pours a black body with dense, creamy, tan and long-lived head that laces the glass excellently. Sweet, malty and very strong aroma of roasted malt, chocolate, sweet overripe generic fruits and sugar. Strong flavour of roasted malt, chocolate (that isn’t as obvious as in the aroma), liquorice and chocolate in the back. A bit too much of this overripe fruitiness and some strange-ish herbal notes, also a tad too sugary, The taste is moderate to heavy sweet and the long-lasting finish is moderate bitter, with a nice touch of pine. Perfect mouthfeel: it’s full-bodied, oily and smooth with a fairly soft carbonation. It all ends rather dry. A very nice brew, but I’d actually hoped for even more from this one (that’s the drawback of not doing blind tasting, I guess).
[35.5 cl bottle, enjoyed 5 years before BB date, from Vinmonopolet Online]

Hur man än mäter styrka på ett öls beska är jag tämligen säker att det inte är med en seismograf. Victory Storm däremot är så kolossal att endast Richterskalan kan återge dess ohyggliga dimensioner. Kontakta berörda beredskapsmyndigheter innan du släpper ut denna ande ur flaskan.

Poured from the bottle. Big coffee foamy head. Little hop up front on the nose that I didn’t expect. Sweet, roasted malt on the first bite. Taste didn’t follow across the palette. Fades quickly and the fact that I was tasting an imperial stout went with it. Lost the big taste to almost a brown ale through the middle...guess I’ll have to taste another.

Flaska från SB, drygt ett år gammal. Brunsvart med gräddbrunt, fingertjockt skum som sakta lägger sig. Söta kolatoner, julmust, fruktigt kaffe, pepparkaka, kakao. Fyllig och gräddig kropp med inledande fruktig kola och tendens till vinösa toner. Övergår ganska snabbt i en ihängande, intensiv kaffebeska. En del toner av aceton och sprit i eftersmaken. Något nötig. Kanske tunnats ut något av lagringen, men beskan är förvånansvärt kraftfull, med tydliga espresso-toner. Passar oerhört bra till en bit riktigt mörk choklad. För sin alkoholhalt är den oerhört kraftig.

Aroma and taste of roasted, smoked , licorice and some coffee. A bitter ending, but for me the "coffeebitterness" dont work...

Chopper925 (365) - Gross Gerau, GERMANY - DEC 30, 2015
Bottle. Clear dark brown color, small brown head. Coffee, dark chocolate, dried fruits in the nose. Taste is very dry and harsh bitter. More roasted tones in the aftertaste, chocolate, coffee, very long lasting astringent bitterness. I’m a bit confused, did a grab a dud one? This one is just pure astringent bitterness with few roasted malt aromas.
