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.

Pours black, finger of thick creamy khaki head, lots of lacing. Aroma roast, toffee, dark chocolate, dark fruit, slight citrus and earthy hops. Taste slightly bitter, hint of citrus, roast malt, chocolate, toffee, burnt sugar, slight alcohol, earthy. Mouthfeel thick body, medium carbonation, roast and alcohol astringency, finish is on the dry side. Overall one of my favorites, complex, yet balanced, big, yet approachable.

BreWedge (314) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 4, 2014
12 fl oz bottle. Pours as black as Vladimir Putin's heart with a small but thick mocha head. Aromas are roasty malt, chocolate, and a touch of vanilla. Tastes are roasty coffee and carbony bitterness (like burnt toast). Robust body but still smooth and creamy, lots of carbonation and a lengthy roasty finish. Victory indeed! Not a huge fan of imperial stouts but this is a winner, hard to tell it's a whopping 9.1% abv. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

In over a decade of tasting beers around the world, this is the best stout I have tried and quite possibly the best beer in the world, period.

sudomorph (609) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 22, 2014
12fl oz bottle. Pours black with a half finger, mocha head that laces well. Aroma has big notes of bitter/dark chocolate, roasted malts, a bit of caramel, and a touch of floral and citrus hops. Taste is a strong bitter with big roasted malts and dark chocolate, a good amount of floral hop flavour, and a drawn out, almost espresso bitter ending. Very slight alcohol taste. Medium-full body with a low-medium carbonation. Pretty clean and smooth in the mouth with a big, dry finish. Very drinkable. Overall a great imperial stout. Classic flavours with some noticeable hop flavours. Now to age a few and see how it changes.

Aroma: intense roasted malts, coffee, espresso. Appearance: black, medium creamy beige head. Taste: light bitter and sweet. Palate:bitters intensify immediately, but so do the sweets, roasted flavours, coffee, dark fruits, prunes, intense bitters in the long, dry finish. Overall: massive Imperial Stout, intensely complex aroma and palate. Bottle from BottleDog Kings Cross, Holborn.

micronaut129 (241) - chalfontborotowntonbergville, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 16, 2014
Cellared one year Pours deep brown/black with a small tan head that maintains through out this session as a small wispy veil in the center of a small foam ring. Aromas of roasted malts and a slight hoppiness. Sweet malt tasting with some hop bitterness. The hops seemed to have mellowed out as I expected. Malts have a chocolate espresso flavor. A rich full bodied beer that has some grittiness on finish. The flavors after a year have mellowed out nicely. A nice rich stoudt beer with a good dose of hidden alcohol. After reviewing I finished the beer off with a couple chunks of smoked gouda. They went together nicely.

12 oz bottle poured dark thick black with a creamy head. Aroma is roast coffee. Taste is coffee, dark cocoa, tangy and a bit boozy. Long bitter finish. Pretty good!

Bottled 28/06/14. A pitch black beer with a dissipating tan coloured head. Thick soy and bitter roast flavours. A long finish. Lots of booze (this bottle is probably five or more years old). Deep, fruity and burnt. Rich and tasty.
