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.

I seem to find a little inconsistancy with Victory, but the storm king always seems to impress me!

A nine percenter that defiantly should be savored. This beer has a dark malt aroma with a hint of chocolate lingering in the background. It pours into the glass with a full robust head that fades slowly leaving nice tracings on the perimeter of the glass. It has a dark brown color that resembles the color of soil in Illinois after two days of rain. The flavor grabs hold of the taste buds as soon as it enters the mouth. The nice roasted malt flavor enters a tad bitter but smoothes out nicely leaving a nice mild chocolate/coffee sensation lingering on the tongue.

This beer continues to be my favorite in the line up of beers brewed in the winter. A rich dark stout with an aroma of coffee and tast of roasted malt. But for this hophead the greatest pleasure is the perfect taste of hops in the beginning. I will put a case in my basement for enjoyment throughout the summer.

nov 2004 bottle, thanks to lou! pours with a small unbecoming fizzy head that fizzles away quickly. aroma of light alcohol, burnt grains, a touch of hops, some sweet prune. one of the hoppier stouts, tons of american hops showcased in the bitter finish. feels thin, perhaps too attenuated. i think that if they tossed some more pale malt in there it would be a touch bigger and fuller, which would make it much more enjoyable. maybe my bottle was too fresh??

Pour a jet black color. Rich in favor and full bodied. The guys at Victory do not disappoint. Strong coffee flavor.

Bottled Nov 19, 2002 Drank this to celebrate Duke’s loss. Poured thick and black with a tan head. Beautiful. Strong initial piney hop aroma. There’s some roasted malt and chocolate hanging around in the background. First sip ... BANG! Good hoppiness for an impy stout. Let it warm, then the roasted malts, coffee and chocolate start to appear. Let it warm some more, it smoothes out and the licorice and chocolate covered cherries start to take over. Wonderful aftertast. Two years aging really made this one smooth. I have one more in the cellar, maybe one more year. Now, back to celebrating the Duke loss.

Bud should stop the "king of beer" slogan and storm king have it. This Stout was excellent. With 9% alcohol, it is like buy 1 get 1 free/

This is a full-bodied black stout offered as a winter warmer. It also happens to be my favorite beer from Victory. If poured properly a great lace will develop as the beer is enjoyed. Nice coffee and chocolate flavors abound. This is definately a beer to stock up on when available. It will hold and age if properly cellared.

pours black with off white head. floral hoppy aroma with hint of citrus - roasted malts hidden in there. the flavor is of spicy hops at first and then you get the roasty malt/chocolate/coffee flavor characteristic of good stouts. there is also a grapefruit and licorice hint. the finish is bitter and long lasting. a very good stout.

Not surprised to find Storm King in the 100th percentile. A terrific beer. When held to a bright light, this near-black stout shows a hint of purple around the edges. A large tan head subsides to a thin layer, but leaves a fat lace. A variety of fruits in the aroma... orange, plum... and a gothic perfume I can’t place (patchouli... rose... ???) Flavors of strong roast coffee/espresso with a hint of grape juice. Forced to quaff the head on my second pour, I first took note of the 9.1%. Outstanding.
