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: MAR 25, 2004 Deep black color with a medium sized brown head. Smells slightly coffee with hoppy tones. The mouthfeel was a bit thinner than expected and a little too much carbonation. Flavor is complex with deep roastedness and hints of licorice and coffee.

Pours a deep black with a thick creamy tan head that lasts. Aroma is of roasted coffee, caramel, dark fruits, and hops. Big thick and full mouthfeel. Slick and smooth. Like velvet. Dark chocolate, coffee, and dark fruits on the tongue. Nice dry bitter hop finish. This beer is like a dream.

UPDATED: JAN 28, 2006 This was one of my first ratings and probably my worst description ever. I just bought 2 bottles recently in Buffalo so here’s a rerate. Lovely intense roasty, chocolate aroma. Pitch black, slick brown head. Incredible roast up front, hops ad alcohol follow. Silky smooth. Intense. Wow, what a stout, I appreciate it even more.

Deep black pour with a nice tannish head. Some hops, vanilla, AND chocolate spring from this great aroma. Smooooth taste. Chocolaty, with some coffee as well. Not too thin but not too thick. Just about right. Very well made, I was impressed.

Finally number 100! I found this during my recent trip to Toronto at the LCBO, and it really made my day (and week), especially after the exhausting ride from Montreal. Here we go. Super dark black, I cannot see any highlights in this. It's got a small dark tan head which quickly dissapeared. The aroma is full of coffee, slightly alcoholic; chocolate with cherries; normally a combination I despise, but it works nicely here. Flavour is roasted heavily, and lots of hops are there too. There are notes of chocolate, molasses, and lots of licorice. Oily palate, somewhat sticky. Awesome. Bottle.

Pours an opaque black colour with a thick foamy head. Delicious aromas of roasted malt, chocolate and hops. Thick body. Fantastic taste of roasted malt and dark chocolate with a great hop bitterness. I'll be getting more of these!

SiddFinch (155) - Pen Argyl, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 7, 2004
Thick, brown head with a roasted coffee aroma. Mouthfeel was very, very oily. Flavor dominated by roasted malts and chocolate. Stays on your tongue a while. Very good.

Gunny (41) - Dundas, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 4, 2004
Opaque black with a thick, malted milk head. Aromas of vanilla, white oak, chocolate and pungent, aromatic hops balanced by smouldering, dark roasted malt. All hops to start followed by a dark roasted malt bitterness, licorice root, plum and double short espresso. Lingering bittersweet finish. An enjoyable, well crafted Stout.
