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.

Ok at last these Victory beers are appearing in Oregon, it is about time. Bought in a 12 oz single from Liquid Solutions. In appearance its typical good stout, pitch black ,impenetrable by light, small tan head that dissapears fast.Good laceing. Nice burnt, chocolate, esspresso aromas, also a wiff of alcohol. This is nice enough..it has the complexitieds expected from a stout, the dark chocolate, rum,esspresso coffee, but I think the alcohol shows through too much and disrupts the flavour parade.But its not unpleasant. Again I think the palate starts of nice and smooth and the alcohol breaks it down somewhat to near watery. Its a good winter night drink..but I think I prefer my stouts a little less alcoholic.

I very good beer as far as Imperial Stouts go. Rich in taste with a nice chocolaty aftertaste. Another great beer from the Victory Brewery.

Bottle. I was hesitant to buy a 6-pack of this because it was about 12 dollars. Finally found a single bottle. Very impressed. Warms my heart and lights my fire. Victory for Victory

Nice black color, tan head. Looks thick, and ends up with a smooth creamy mouthfeel. Aroma is cappucino, cinnamon, vanilla and some fruity notes as well. Flavor is rather complex: starts sweet with chocolate and molasses, turns into more coffee, but there are definitely a lot hops down there, showing up with a citrusy lime taste and some flowery notes. Smoked wood dry aftertaste, with alcohol kicking in a little bit. Very well balanced, full-bodied beer. My favorite Victory...

Great color and smooth mouth feel. This beer hit on almost every note. I was a little underwhelmed by the finish but would still drink this beer again and again.

UPDATED: OCT 1, 2005 Pours an opaque jet black with a little bit of tan head. Aroma is an interesting mixture of roasty malts and citrusy flowers. Flavor is very complex starting first with a smooth sweetness then a little bit of hopes, followed by a lot of coffee and finishing with a ton of bitterness. Very thick and heavy and can definitely tell theres a lot of alcohol in this one. Overall, quite a good beer. Re-rate 10/1/05: Just tried a bottle I had been aging for about a year. It absolutely knocked my socks off. Flavor mellows incredibly and its so smooth. Love it

Pours perfect for an imperial stout, ebony black with a tall light brown head. Very roasty aroma, just a beast of roastiness, hint of very dark chocolate, rich coffee, slight smokey quality, and some fig/raisin notes. Taste is smooth as butter, going down with ease, just amazingly balanced with a nice trailing coffee bitterness. Taste starts with a nice sweetness, hints of slightly bitter bakers chocolate, then a big rush of coffee and clean bitterness to balance. Slight salty/soysauce hint near the finish thats really quite pleasant in thsi brew. Very smooth and big beer with some mystical owl staring at you the whole time you drink.

This is a good one! Strong taste, lasting flavor that remains on the tongue. No hint of bitterness. The high alcohol content leaves a pleasant warm feeling.

served up on tap by a sandy blond cutie barmaid at Victory Brewing Co!! What a great welcome back to the East Coast. Blackish/dark ruby brownish clear color, thin dark tan head. coffee and roasted malt nose, dry roasted malt flavor balanced with dark fruits, fresh tobacco, and hop bitterness. some folks donít believe the hype, but I score this high because itís a very pleasant Imp Stout. save a spot for me at the bar!
