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.

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.

Pours an incredible pitch black color--head lasts a few minutes--aroma is of hops, chocolate, and malts.Tastes really thick and creamy-- and hoppy WHAM!! right on and the alcohol content is excellent.Really epensive but well worth it.Another winner by Victory Brewing CO.

Amazing pour. Slow and creamy, black as night. Bitter aroma. Malts and roasted chocolate. Aftertaste that lingers for days. Submlime.

WabashMan (1017) - Noblesville, Indiana, USA - FEB 3, 2004
Really a very nice beer and a great Imperial Stout, this one features a big, bold, roasty, delicious flavor that lingers for days. If only the aroma was as big and bold, this could be even greater!

Delicious, as with all the Victory brews... PERFECT balance between the malts and hops, high alcohol content is simply not noticeable. An incredible brew, A+.

DCopperfields (146) - New York, USA - FEB 3, 2004
Jet black with a frothy, brown head. Lace is thick and gobbish. Aroma is unsweetened dark chocolate, burnt coffee and a deep ethereal roastiness. Rich full mouthfeel, redolent of alcohol soaked chocolate. Creamy smooth with a bite of floral hops which keeps my mouth swirling with flavors. Outstanding.
