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.

Pours a dark black body with little to no transperancy. Quickly receding head. Powerful roasted malt flavors. Hints of chocolate, coffee and vanilla, maybe even caramel. Surprisingly, a decent amount of hop character, making this stout more complex and intruging then others. Well done!

UPDATED: FEB 15, 2007 Draught: Pours black small beige head. Mainly roasted malts with some coffee and chocolate to it. A lot of hops in this really taking the other flavors away from the beer giving it a good amount of bitterness. Great mouthfeel and very easy to drink just wish there werenít so many hops.

johnyvt (158) - West Hollywood, California, USA - DEC 20, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 21, 2004 This has got to be one of the best smelling stouts out there. Creamy, complex roasted malts. Nice tastes of spicy hops and chocolate. Little bit of coffee/espresso. Very little alcohol taste.

Great stout!! Has an amazing variety of different roasted malt flavors. Almost tastes like coffee, with a chocalate hint.The head on this beer pours a nice medium brown color and has a thick and fluffy texture to it.

jde123 (771) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - DEC 18, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 23, 2006 One of the mildest imperial stouts I have imbibed. Definately aromatic, chocolate and espresso dominate with roasted malts. Definate hoppiness, strange, but amazingly good! Fantastic full flavor, complex. Very nice! Better than most.

UPDATED: MAR 12, 2007 Had a chance to get well acquainted with a case of this Imperial Stout. Tastes of chocolate and coffee. Very complex. Donít plan on drinking more than a few of these in one sitting. *** Inconsistency across years is a bit of a problem *** This beer has fallen hard.

lamas (1527) - Washington DC, USA - DEC 14, 2004
Oct. í04 bottle. Pours a jet black with thick tan head. Aroma is of chocolate, malts, some hops, nuts and slightly of vanilla. Taste is chocolatey, roasty and malty. Finishes with a hint of vanilla and bitter hops. Very thick. Very smooth. Very warming. Very nice.

SpringsLicker (3319) - Tennessee, USA - DEC 14, 2004
Bottled 10/23/03 from the cellar on 12/14/04. Opaque black with a substantial tan head that receded quickly, lacing the glass as it fell. Chocolate and coffee with rich malts in the aroma. This has a very creamy dry palate, extremely smooth. Bitter espresso comes onto the tongue first, some chocolate at the back. Complex flavors and palate mask the alcohol well. I first tried this in June and was disappointed, the cellar has definitely improved this one.

brewshthereen (316) - Oregon, USA - DEC 13, 2004
Poures rich and dark with a short lived tan head. I was suprised with the fruity, peppery aroma of this full-bodied beast. Fruity (ripe cherries, plums), dark roasted, and pleasantly acidic. Very dry and satisfying. No alcohol bite whatsoever. I think this is even superior to Old rasputin because of itís amazing drinkablity and smoothness. Awesome Victory! Well worth the price.

An unbelievably huge beer, in every sense. Thick dark brown pour w/light-brown head and some lacing. Invitingly thick palate, just the right amount of carbonation. Iím definitely no expert, so I couldnít pick out many of the flavors at work, but suffice it to say itís incredibly complex and delicious. A pleasure.
