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.

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 (3808) - 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.

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.

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.

Crosling (1864) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 3, 2004
UPDATED: MAR 22, 2005 Rerate: 14 month old bottle. Even after more than a year in the bottle itís still aromatically hoppy, which doesnít work well with the malt, and even though it is very full bodied, chocolatey and vinous, itís still a bit crude from the excessive hops, so I am lowering my score for right now.

A new favorite of mine. Heard and read lots of good about this brew, finally had the chance to grab some and was not disappointed. Aroma was overwhelmed with hopiness, which is a bit strange for an i.s. but not bad by any means. also had obvious notes of chocolate, roasted malts, and coffee. Tastes were similar, with the hops still showing up in a big way, providing for a really different experience. am really looking forward to having the rest of this six pack over the next few years and seeing how it ages. but as a younger brew i really enjoyed it.

Bottle. Black body with a small tan head. Chocolate and roasted malt aroma. Big coffee flavors to go with hop bitterness, burnt grains, and some underlying fruit. S bit of a creaminess to it. Hides alcohol well. Another disapointment. Just too much burnt flavors.
