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.

dmschefke (570) - Macomb, Michigan, USA - JUN 7, 2009
Pours a near black brown with medium tan head, minimal lacing. Aroma surprisingly mild of more hops than roasted malt, coffee, and a slight cocoa. Flavor when colder matches the aroma, then as it gets warmer in temperature, changes to a bit more of the roasted malt, coffee, and chocolate. Hints of dark, dried fruit evident later. Has a bit of an alcohol burn to finish. Creamy mouthfeel apparent. Overall, not bad, but nothing great.

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 (196) - 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 (401) - 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.

madvike (2784) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 17, 2014
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.

maltman53 (368) - Corrales, New Mexico, USA - OCT 4, 2014
Itís got lots of coffee and mostly roasted notes on the nose as well as the palate. Itís almost like a barley wine w/ a roasted finish. Overall, a bit stout thatís roasted and bitter, not sweet.

33cl bottle served in a snifter. Pours black with a white frothy head which clings to the inside of the glass nicely. Aroma is quite subdued and the taste is bitter with a watery mouthfeel for the style and the ABV. Very disappointed considering the high reviews it has received. Feels like it would have benefitted from aging and the other bottle I have will be aged to see if this improves the rather two dimensional taste.
