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.

Re-Rate 12/20/02 Wow my notes from last yearís Real Ale Fest were pretty good. I just donít feel this beer is true to style, too hoppy. Although that usually doesnít matter too much, its not quite to my liking. Not true to style. Thin. Thats my only complaint though. Dark body no head which may be due to cask. Light hops up front with a strong coffee/chocolate flavor. Very very well crafted.

When poured into the glass it is BLACK, no light gets through. The head is thick, rich and a creamy mocha tan. It lasted. The lace was beautiful, the same color as the head, and it draped the inside to the last sip. The aroma was amazing and complex and intense. I nosed coffee, chocolate, berries (as it warmed), floral, malt and hops. The taste was amazing, full and smooth. I tasted chocolate, coffee, milk, fruit (berries), roasted malt and hops. Temperature plays a role in this beer. The warmer it got the more intense and distinct the flavors became. It starts off alittle sweet then all the flavors jump at you and then it has a dry long lasting finish. GREAT BEER

On a cold fall night, what better than a Victory Storm King Imperial Stout (thanks for the trade Oakes) to get me feeling all warm and fuzzy inside. Letís start with the aroma, much more pleasant than the Stone Imperial Stout and the Dogfish Head WWS (18%) that preceded it - initial nose was crowded with an aroma somewhere between raisins and kalamata olives; surprising tan head on this thinner brew. The taste is nothing short of awesome - some hints of chocolate with more of a roasted, burnt, espresso palate. This could exponentially be my favorite imperial stout to date. Goes down extremely smooth, so look out, as the 9.1% is masked materfully...

Has this on cask. Nice and chunky. Just the way a stout supposed to be.

Very mellow for a stout. Looks like a stout, smells like a stout, but I really like it, not like most stouts. For me it drinks like a nice IPA. which means it has a heart of hops that canít be missed.

PoW! One truly needs to drink this stout with a fork and knife. Wonderful and unexpected floral hop nose. Very rich roasted, espresso malt flavor. Victory did it again - Bravo!

UPDATED: FEB 10, 2008 This is sweeter in aroma and flavor than I expected, and it works. Roasted coffee, slight burnt sugar taste, maybe a little chocolate and plum. Hop twinges initially and throughout. Truly yummy. Had it in a tulip glass...I donít know if thatís recommended for the style, but it killed me in the nose in a good way!

UPDATED: NOV 28, 2004 Dark in color and has aroma of hops. Iíve got to admit that Iím a big hops fan and this beer really tickled my fancy. I taste both the hops and the roast malt, its a complex brew. Itís very different than I expected, Iíve had IPAs that I couldnít taste the hops like this one. Itís an excellent brew, Iím going to have to hound the local distributor to bring it in.
