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.

I really wanted to love this more than I did. Although it is a top Stout, one of the best in fact, I couldnít stop comparing it to Stoneís Imperial Stout. And itís probably just personal prefference, but I like Stoneís a lot more. That said, this brew will beat just about every other stout out there hands down.

Bakerís chocolate, coffee, toffee, lots of hops. I was expecting to be blown away based on the reviews, but I just thought it was a good stout in general. Maybe it needs to age a bit. Bonus points for masking the alcs.

Bottle - big roasty, chocolatey nose. Velvety smooth on the palate. Beautiful chocolatey Impy. Loved this one!

Bottle-In the vaults of HI International. Bring it on. What a great beer. Beautifully velvetty chocolate mocha flavours, lovely roasted malts. Its also quite hoppy, for sure, but the balance is great, it really is rich, yet subtle, teases the tongue quite nicely. Always made me want more after every sip. Bottled on Jan 20, 2004, so its fresh, and it tastes mighty good.

Easily my favorite imperial stout, although there are many I have yet to try. Bitter. Wow. Good.

Black as midnight on a new moon, with a substantial and lasting head. You can smell chocolate, a little espresso, and cherry. You can taste all of that too, with a hint of rasberry. The beer didnít have much legs, and was a little thinner than ideal, but an excellent stout really. A must have.

UPDATED: SEP 1, 2004 Poured from 2003 vintage bottle. Light orange and brownish head. Body was incredibly black. Deep caramel, coffee, roasted malts and cherries all come out of the subtle aroma. The taste is sweet with raspberries, chocolate, coffee and apples. This is an excellent Imp. Stout. A little too much tartness and slightly thin. Thanks milkmandan.

00cobraR (1103) - Greensboro, North Carolina, USA - MAY 31, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 20, 2005 Pours black with a dark dark tan head. Has a coffee flavor. Large alcohol content warms you up as it goes down.

shadey (2076) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 26, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 15, 2005 This was definitely tastey. Black pour with a thin dark tan head. Rich coffee molasses and hops flavors. Good, but there is better. Not sure about the 100 percent it has acheived. I would take a smutty nose imperial over this any day. 8/4/7/5/16

RERATE: Black color with a thin dark tan head. Aroma is big rich and mildly alcoholic. Flavor is mostly roast with some weak chocolate. Finish is bitter, but again I am not overly impressed.
