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.

UPDATED: FEB 3, 2012 The storm king will get drunk thats for sure. A lot more hoppy then a typical stout. Ive had this beer many times and at times the boozy smell can take a little from it. Pours jet black w a small coffee looking head, and has a very complex taste to it. Overall very good

Salmoniform (263) - 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.

Westkyoto77 (441) - Kyoto, JAPAN - APR 19, 2014
Draught at The Craic. What a legendary beer. Black as pitch, deceptively thin tan head. Aromas of dark choc carried on hops hit you from a good distance. Rich mouthfeel. Hops don't get in the way of chocolate, espresso and malt. Fantastic flavours. A winner.

Renobob (452) - Besançon, FRANCE - APR 11, 2014
Bue à la pression. Amertume présente dès l’attaque. Plutôt corpulente, on note des arômes de café, d’alcool.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours black with a tan head. Taste chocolate, roasted malt. I thought this was good. I could drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jflopsu (439) - New Jersey, USA - APR 1, 2014
Pours a dark black with thick light brown head. Has a strong coffee, roasted malt and chocolate aroma. A very creamy beer with a bitter coffee, cocoa, dark fruit, and light malt taste.

kwik-lime (1169) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 23, 2014
Bottle at The Antelope in Surbiton. Strong hop profile, roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, quite a sweet finish with alcohol evident. Really full-bodied making it an incredibly satisfying mouthful. Might have been wise to take more time savouring this though rather than drinking it quickly and moving onto whiskies.

DrunkSanta410 (184) - Georgia, USA - MAR 22, 2014
Bottle to glass. Pours black, little head. Aroma is bittersweet chocolate, coffee malts. Taste is bitter dark chocolate, hints of black coffee, some spices. Palate is medium thick, flavor lingers for a long time on palate. Overall a bold, but good imperial stout.
