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.

UPDATED: NOV 9, 2006 This is an excellent stout. Kinda surprised it is a 100 percentile though. Bitter... what you would expect. Good. Yay. Edit 11/09/06 - This is really a knockout beer. Just really, really great.

JCapriotti (1379) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 30, 2004
Nov. 2003 Bottle, sampled 10/29/04. Very dark brown/black and clear body. Average sized creamy light-brown head that lasts. Roasted/burnt cascadey hop aroma with some chocolate. Nothing exceptional to pick out in the taste, but it just a great concoction of hops and roasted malts. Plus, I drank it kind of fast. Nice mouthfeel... slightly oily.

Mads Langtved (2244) - Copenhagen K, DENMARK - OCT 25, 2004
Good stout. Quite hoppy and malty. Burned finish. It is a great beer, because of the strong bitterness, compared to other examples of this style. Pretty dry and DARK!! Fantastic aroma.

Iím rating a 2000 Vintage of this brew and have to say its fantastic. This Stout gets much better as it sits. Chocolate, coffee, and roasted malt flavors. Finishes smooth and clean.

UPDATED: JUN 20, 2005 Despite the raves about this brew I found it to be somewhat less than the hype. Donít get me wrong, nice aroma, good looking beer. But the flavor (malt, molasses, and espresso...which sounds great) did not do it for me?? OK. Had this again the other night and Iíve adjust my rating somewhat. I still contend that the hype on this beer is a bit much but Iíll admit that my first rating was a bit low. Let me also say that Iíd like to note some charcole and lite fruit (apricot?) in the taste as well.

ANOTHER retaste. 2004 bottle. Much better aroma this time with dark chocolate, spicey/citrus hops. I increased the aroma rating. Still think the flavor rating I gave is accurate, though I noted more dark chocolate and citrus/pine hops this time.

Just run out and buy it! Yuummm! Dark pour, with a great tan heads that lasts and lasts. Chocolately, hoppy, perfect. High ABV lets you know it, but itís hard to stop because it;s so good! Enjoy.

rauchbier (3774) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - OCT 11, 2004
Cask, GBBF2004. Jet black, good coffee beige head and moderate fine condition. Excellent spirity aromas of coffee, raosted barley and liquoice with some gentle background hops (cascade?). Thick and oily in the mouth with lots of sweet liquorice, roast barley, bitter coffee and again a low hop note. Long and warming alcoholic kick in the finish, laced with licoriceand coffee beans. Worth the entry fee on its own.

SilentNight (5) - CANADA - OCT 10, 2004 does not count
Black as tar, very smooth. Quite dry with a pronounced hop aftertase. The alcohol is pretty well hidden in terms of the mouthfeel, as opposed to more astringent stouts such as Samuel Smithís. Very hard to find here in Toronto.

bourne (161) - Suwon, SOUTH KOREA - OCT 5, 2004
the only bad thing i can say about this beer is that it isnt availible near me often. very had to finger roasted malt that doesnt taste too much like cocolate or coffee.
