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: JUN 20, 2005 Bottle - The coffee/bitter chocolate taste and the part bitter/part sweet aftertaste make this a top notch beer. I would love to try this on tap. NOTE: I would wait at least 6 months from the date on the bottle to drink this. It improves greatly given at least that amount of time.

Another great beer from Victory. Storm King is a fabulous imperial stout. Very complex, not overpowering, and smooth as silk. It is what I would call a semi-sweet stout (like non sweetened chocolate chips) with overtones of mocha. It has a nice stout aroma, great malty complexity with a bold, non-cloying aftertaste. I have had this on tap but not yet in bottles.

pours out pitch black, with a tan head that lasted most of the glass. poured it close to room temp. this was a great stout, the best that i believe i have had. strong flavor of coffee, thick and warming. alcohol is concealed VERY well, and it was only until i got to the end could i detect the prescence of alcohol. awesome beer

Looks like a shot of express, very mild aroma of roasted malts. Light bodied for imperial stout, alcohol is well hidden ,smooth, well crafted beer. No yeast flavors almost lager like it’s so clean flavored.

What a great beer to celebrate my 1.500th rating. Thanks to Jeppe (BierKönig) for sharing this one with me. It pours black and has a fine brown head. The aroma is sweet with notes of smoke and coffee. And the flavor is sweet too with notes of smoke and coffee before the sweetness gives way to a great bitter end. A fantastic flavor in a fantastic beer with a great body. This is the best beer I've tasted so far - and comes very close to 5.0.

This is a monster. I have never before seen a beer that light can not penetrate. In the darkness lurks a strong massively hoppy and burnt taste. A mature drinker's delight, but the thought of more than a couple of these in a row is enough to give me bed spins. Savour!

12 oz bottle with date Nov 21 2003. Great malty aroma that fades really fast. Get a whiff quick. Head fades even faster than the aroma - great label on a dark beer. Dry, bitter stout - are my taste buds shot?. Really roasted - talking campfire charcoal here. Don't taste the alcohol, but it will probably smack me later.

Black coloured. Very smooth and well rounded. Loads of malts and quite some hops. Notes of coffee and dark bitter chocolate. Very tasty.

Incredible! Dark body. basically jet black. Caramel coloured head, that's medium sized. Nice lacing on the glass. Sort of spicy fruity aromas with some sweetness. Tastes of malt, and sweet fruitness. Alcohol is nicely hidden, and boy does this stuff even go down easy.

Salty, sweet corn DMS. Some alcohol. Very sweet. Dark brown almost black not quite opaque. Very little head. Subdued roastiness. High alcohol sweetness and alcohol lasts through. Medium-full body. Smooth mouth-feel. Bottle. Blind tasting #11.
