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.

wombat23 (137) - Texas, USA - DEC 19, 2015
Shared 12 oz. bottle. Pours Brown-black with thick, creamy tan head. Aroma: chocolate, roasted malt, and a touch of citrus. Taste: chocolate, roasted malt, piney bitterness with a hint of citrus and coffee. A rather strong malty backbone, but balanced by the hop bitterness.Overall, an interesting combination of flavors that most likely wouldn’t always work well together, but here they combine nicely. A solid, complex brew.

This is a high quality beer with a real kick to it. The aroma consists of heavy coffee/chocolate. Taste is heavy on roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, salty licorice and some ash. Combined they give a long lasting aftertaste. There’s also some bitterness in the finish. A good brew!

Sirmixsomewhat (169) - Paoli, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 10, 2015
It’s a little strong for my taste, but you can tell it’s quality brewed and Victory knows their stuff. I’d try it again in hopes that I can handle it, but maybe that’s why I shouldn’t have had it in the first place.

imdownthepub (12168) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 9, 2015
Bottled, 355ml, aged 6yrs from Bellingers Garage, Grove, Oxon. This is big on darkly roasted malts, rich and smooth with ageing. There is a port wine note from the alcohol, there is a rich fruitiness given up by the malts. Lasting palate. Pretty special.

hackobock (2768) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - DEC 8, 2015
December 8, 2015. Bottle at home, best before december 9, 2019.
Black with a creamy tan head sticking to the glass. Aroma is ash, dark berries, salty licorice, some earthy notes, milk chocolate, sweet toffee and vanilla. Taste is light sweet and quite bitter. Finish is roasted malts with cocoa, hints of ash, coffee, sweet dark berries, licorice, toffee and vanilla. Medium bodied, quite creamy, soft to average carbonation.
Good, nice roasted character and not too sweet but still creamy.
