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.

allmyvinyl (2795) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 1, 2014
355ml bottle from Brewdog Online Shop. Pours jet black, thick tan head. Big grassy hop aromas, some coffee and roasted notes. Taste brings a chocolate note, but overwhelmingly hop-bitter. Too much so for me.

NeuroPliny (140) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 1, 2014
Tasted at Victory with ML. Pours dark brown with a tan head. Aroma is toasted malts and hops. Flavour is chocolate, expresso, smoke, and brown sugar. There are hops balancing the sweetness. Full body. Very nice Imperial Stout.

ScipioA (248) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - APR 21, 2014
Looks great in the purple, black with a huge cappuccino foam head that lasts almost as long as the drink. Delicious charred chocolate aromas waft up. Flavor adds sweet malt presence, but with some unpleasant alcohol aftertaste. Smooth and thick mouthfeel characteristic of the style with a dry and almost chalky finish. Approachable and easily found imperial stout.

Salmoniform (459) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - APR 19, 2014
Poured from bottle to glass. Dark hue with tan head. Aroma is charred malt, caramel, esters, figs, resin, chocolate, leather. Mouthfeel is great with a medium body and good carbonation. Taste is dry initially with astringent bitterness in the following, overall this is a nice imperial.

Westkyoto77 (501) - Kyoto, JAPAN - APR 19, 2014
Draught at The Craic. What a legendary beer. Black as pitch, deceptively thin tan head. Aromas of dark choc carried on hops hit you from a good distance. Rich mouthfeel. Hops don't get in the way of chocolate, espresso and malt. Fantastic flavours. A winner.

Renobob (564) - Besançon, FRANCE - APR 11, 2014
Bue à la pression. Amertume présente dès l’attaque. Plutôt corpulente, on note des arômes de café, d’alcool.

arnold931 (398) - Iowa, USA - APR 7, 2014
Bottle. Dark black with tan head. Nose is coffee and hops. Taste is fairly dry. I like Expedition better.

gschrade (525) - Collinsville, USA - APR 1, 2014
I had this at Global Brew. Pours black with a tan head. Taste chocolate, roasted malt. I thought this was good. I could drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jflopsu (494) - New Jersey, USA - APR 1, 2014
Pours a dark black with thick light brown head. Has a strong coffee, roasted malt and chocolate aroma. A very creamy beer with a bitter coffee, cocoa, dark fruit, and light malt taste.
