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. I’ve 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 isn’t a wowzer Imperial Stout but is a good beer that is light on alcohol for something so heavy. Give it a whirl.

Hallstein (351) - Skogn, NORWAY - NOV 24, 2015
0,355 bottle from Vinmonopolet Valentinlyst - Pours a dark jet blak with a dark brown head. Aroma has tons of roasted malt, dark sweet bread, raisin, plum, some hoppiness in there, slight vanilla. On the flavor i get tons of roastiness, slightly sweet bread, tons of bitterness, slightly sour (did they hit their correct mash pH?...) and a lingering dry malty finish. Quite good, but not among my favorite imperial stouts.

UPDATED: NOV 21, 2015 Svart med ganske hřyt lysebrunt skum. Aroma av rřstet malt og kaffe. Hint av sjokolade. Smaken er deilig kaffe og noe mřrk sjokolade. Lakris? Ikke nevneverdig sřt, men med med en kledelig kaffebitterhet i ettersmaken. Tykk konsistens.

fajry (1260) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - NOV 9, 2015
Fľaša. Čierna farba, krémová hnedá pena. Vôňa pražených sladov, jemne karamelu, horká čokoláda, kakao, kvasnice. V provom momente chuť horkej čokolády s jemnou dochuťou kakao. Neskôr trošku karamelu, prezeretých sliviek. Plná chuť, od začiatku do konca. Veľmi ľahko piteľné, trošku suchšie na jazyku. Skvelé!
