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: OCT 16, 2004 This is the best stout I have had (usually not my favorite type of beer) ... Victory has once again set the microbrew standard. Very dark and chocolately, with a very sublime and smooth after-taste. Strong, yet soothing, it’s an extremely enjoyable experience. I would highly recommend this to anyone who loves darker beers.

About the only cmoplaint I had was a faint strange off aroma that smelled like spoiled milk. However, the hop and roast malt aroma also were there. Poured black with a nice tan head. The flavors were coffee and malt with a hop bite. The palate was really creamy, and the alcohol was only noticed upon finishing it and getting out of my chair. Superb IS.

12-oz. bottle. Pours an opaque ebony with a dark tan substantial head. Aroma isn’t as strong as you’d think....roasted mocha....you can definitely smell the hops. Thick-bodied and sits well on the tongue. Strong flavor of roasted malts, nuts, and mocha. Goes down smoothly with a bitter but sweet finish. Yummmm.

When I first tasted this pretty fresh I must admit I did not think much of it. It was too roasty and I do not think a hop presence belongs in an Imperial Stout. Now that it is a year old this beer has mellowed with age beautifully. Pours coffee color with no head. Big mocha/chocolate aroma with just a bit of roastiness. Flavor is mostly mocha and bittersweet chocolate. Mouthfeel is silky smooth. Alcohol strength is hugely masked.Overall a great beer. Great dessert with Choco-chunk cookies,or as a nitecap.Good stuff Maynard.

Pours a solid black color and a minimal tan head. The aroma is of chocolate milk, a hint of roast coffee, and some alcohol. Oily texture and not too heavy for a stout. Flavors are sweet malt and chocolate that builds to a roasted coffee and finishes with a touch of hops. This is a great one.

igel (196) - New Mexico, USA - SEP 4, 2004
Black opaque color with red highlights. No signs of effervescence in the body. A rich full tan head that diminishes rather quickly, but leaves a clingy lace. Aroma is of hops, roasted grains and chocolate. Mouthfeel is creamy like no other -- full bodied and smooth with low effervescence. The taste has a slightly sweet start roasted flavors in the middle and a welcome hop finish. I can see what all the rage is about.

UPDATED: SEP 15, 2004 Re-rate: What I missed the first time in aroma came back the second time around. Perfect stout! Wow! This one blew me away... very strong, very filling, no head -- pitch black. So black, like oil... roasty, deep chocolate and coffee. Awesome!

UPDATED: MAR 5, 2011 The true king of beers. Pours out pitch black wiht a decent sized tan head. It has a roasty, hop aroma. The taste is roasty with notes of hops. You don’t even realize its high ABV until long after you are done. This is a very complex beer, and the only Imperial Stout I drink year-round
