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.

Smell the hops!! Pours and looks like a stout...but underneath that costume is a great black IPA! Hops on the nose...hops on the palate. Definitely an IPA in disguise. Love, love, love it! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Black pour with tan head. Aroma of smoky malt,chocolate and caramel. Taste is bitter, sweet with a coffee finish. Bitterness is not overly strong, but lasts from start to finish.

Aroma- My first thought was of a Three Musketeers candy bar. Milk, dark chocolate and caramel up front. Roasted malts and a touch of dark fruit in the back. Sometimes I get dank hops. Other times, I pick up milk. Taste- Nice. Follows the nose pretty closely. Milk chocolate, dark chocolate, roasted malt, and caramel. I swear I taste nougat in there sometimes. Roasted malts, piney hops, a touch of dark fruit, and a shot of booze in the finish. Licorice shows up as it warms. Every taste is a little different.

Review for thebeerguy. One of the best Stouts I’ve ever had. Expect early bitterness-surprising bitterness, sitting on your tongue. Then develops to a malty bitterness with coffee touches, roast malts, raisins and dark fruits. Beer has a slight fizz to it zapping at your taste buds. Finish is bitter with coffee and raisin with warm alcohol sensation.

Black color, just a lace of foam. Aromas of grassy and resinous hops, roasted malt and smoked malt. Flavors of grassy and resinous hops, roasted malt and hop bitterness. Couleur noire avec un peu de mousse. Arômes de houblon herbacé et résineux, malt torréfié et malt fumé. Saveurs de houblon herbacé et résineux, malt torréfié et amertume de houblon.

allmyvinyl (2878) - 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 (142) - 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 (262) - 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 (465) - 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.
