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: DEC 30, 2007 This is the another beer enjoyed from a tap at a Richmond bar. This is an excellent stout. The head was creamy but did not last long. It has a full flavor of malt and hops and is worth trying. This was enjoyed again at the Capital Ale House in Jan 2006. This was enjoyed again in March 2006 during a birthday party for friends. It was very good. Robust flavors were enjoyed. This stout is one of the best. I enjoyed another beer as one of my Christmas 2007 beers. It has so much character. It is a joy to drink such a quality beverage. It has velvet feel like no other stout.

She is jungle black...and is perfect first thing in the morning..if your into that...referring to her coffee taste and aroma. She starts with a nice creamy head that disapates but she leaves her lace all over hell. She tastes very sweet...smoken (smokey flavor and smell) stout.

(draught at RFD, Washington DC) Deep black with dark tan head. Black cherries and coffee in the aroma. Full bodied with black cherries, esspresso, and hints of dark chocolate in the flavor. Didn't notice the EtOH--didn't have the "brandy" finish of some high ABV beers.

Black in color. Head is medium-large, chocolate brown, and drops after a few minutes leaving behind a ring and nice lacing. Truly delicious aroma: citric hops, cocoa powder, milk chocolate, peat, and a little smoke. Syrupy, milky and rich mouthfeel. Flavor is mossy wet coffee grounds, mildly biting hops, and finish is slightly sweet with maple notes. Despite the huge and roasted aroma, the flavor is overall rather mellow. Quite nice.

UPDATED: APR 28, 2005 Wow, a stout that I actually like a lot! Thick and dark as night, hold it up to the light and none gets through, brown head medium sized that leaves great lacing on the glass. Malty hoppy rich nose. hops and malts tangy and sweet in the taste. Thick full body. Excellent beer. Edit: Had again on 4-28-05. Ya know this stuff is pretty good, dont get me wrong. However, compared to some of the other imperial stouts that I have had this just does not do it for me. Taken from 4.2 to 4.1 just decreased the overall impression from 17 to 16

Wrath (362) - Valparaiso, Indiana, USA - JAN 5, 2004
Black color with small brown head.Aroma is a hoppy coffee smell. Taste is huge in a roasted coffee type of flavor. Pretty complex with different flavors(caramel,chocolate,toffee and vanilla come to mind).Alcohol is not noticed but surely felt.Finishes creamy and bitter.

Absolutely delicious and appropriately named for the flavors of this beer combine and crash like rolling thunder upon one's palate. No one flavor dominates this deep, black Imperial. The beauty lies in the subtley of each of the flavors: coffee/expresso, caramel, deep-roasted malts. And there's an undercurrent of complex, flowery hops with helps with this beers fullness. It has that excellent bittersweet taste like kissing you're friend's hot wife. One of my new favorites. Definitely recommended.

Deep black body, medium-sized mocha brown head. Coffee and hops in the aroma, maybe Cascade. Huge roasted flavor, coffee and bittersweet chocolate. Alcohol not noticeable at all, especially for a 9.1% beer. Amazing!
