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.

A very good Imperial Stout but not sure that it warrants the 100 rating on here. Iíve had better. Pours opaque black with a thin mocha head and barely a shine when held up to light. The mouthfeel struck me the most as it is grainy, sandy and roasted. This is a dark, dark beer with roasted malt and dark chocolate the predominant flavors. Coffe pervades the beer, on the front and back end. This beer is backed up nicely by subtle notes of vanilla and cream which gives it a sweeter back end that stays in the mouth in a nice way. The grainy darkness goes well with the smooth back end. This isnít a wowzer Imperial Stout but is a good beer that is light on alcohol for something so heavy. Give it a whirl.

ibrubeer (143) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - NOV 22, 2014
Draft @ Bocktown, PIT. Nice roasty aroma, maybe a little too hoppy. Jet black color, with nice tight bubbles in a thin beige head. Flavor is more like a black IPA, than IS. Full bodied. Overall a good beer, but not really for an IS.

goodmedicine (3) - Newport Beach, California, USA - NOV 19, 2014 does not count
like other commenters suggested, this read more like an imperial black ipa to me. extremely dark and oily with a light beige head. first taste of coffee and caramel followed by a heavy hop bitterness that reminds be of a good double ipa. malty throughout. donít drink stouts much but this is yummy!

Caramel smell, coffee taste, dark as a moonless night looks, oil slick mouthfeel. Like liquid burnt toffee flowing down the throat. Rated by BrewTom

furthur (198) - Eagle River, Alaska, USA - OCT 29, 2014
Bottle, black body, walnut colored head, good lacing. Aroma of whiskey, raisin, molasses, dark malt. Taste is bitter malt/citrus rind, hops sprucy resin. Palate is smooth, not super rich, carbonation subdued. This is more of an imperial black IPA.

Mjp12 (411) - York, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 25, 2014
Wow, is it stout , a black IPA , or something completely new? Biscuit malts mingle with old hops on the aroma. A luxurious mouthfeel, and the warmth of its abv give a supreme winter beer.

Bottle - Pours black with a thin tan head. Really roasty nose, ashy, a bit of piney hop presence, Same taste--lots of charcoal, dry dark roast, pine hops, bitter finish and a bit warming. Slick and fairly thick in the mouth.
