COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Since its arrival in 1997, our Storm King Stout has enticed folks to “discover the dark intrigue” as its label suggests. While enjoying that great imperial stout, we have been intrigued by the myriad of flavors it exhibits, and encouraged to test the limits of perception and pleasure by adding to the rich experience of Storm King Stout. So here you have such a exploration, involving Storm King Stout aged in oak barrels that once matured Kentucky bourbon. Blended to perfection, this one is surely dark and intriguing!

sampled during the 2011 RBWG weekend Thanks to Kyle for bringing this, pours black with a medium tan head. Aroma is hot and peaty, like a scotch. Flavor is ash, smoke, dry roast, tar. Very strange, I thought this was bourbon barrels?

Bottle thanks to wildman Dean, thanks piney!! Poured a dark black body with a super dark slightly foamy beige head. Aroma of charcoal, chocoalte, vanilla, hint of roasted coconutt. The body was smooth with subtle touches of flavors throughout and light carbonation, excellent. Falvors of tobacco, tar, dark chocoalte, vanilla, and toasted coconutt. Nice but I think this could of used some more time in the barrel to really bring out the flavors and aromas.

Bottle. Shared out at RBWG 2011. Pours black, thin tan head, spotty to good lacing. Nose is ash, tar, tobacco. As it warms it throws little bits of oak or vanilla, but this smells very closed and unforgiving. Flavours of pencil shavings, ash, tar, smoke. Very austere. Not really my thing....

Shared at RBWG11: Dark brown color with an off-white head. Smells like whiskey, coffee, chocolate, slight soy sauce. Taste is very whiskey like and dirty, a bit smoky/ashy but not overpowering, classic coffee and chocolate with a little nutty character. Finish is dry and bitter and a bit thin. The whiskey profile gives it a nice warming finish.

daknole (11049) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAR 8, 2011
Dark brown pour, brown head. Charred, roasty, ashy aroma with very light barrel and chocolate notes. Flavor is bitter, ashy, roasty, char, not much barrel. Regular Storm King is lots and lots better.

Bottle that really got me wasted, RBWG (OK one of many, still this was a beast). Pours a pure oil can dark color with a medium brown head. A large bourbon nose, ashy, hot notes, roast, some hops. The flavor was very hot and certainly BA, but not overly so, I actually thought the bourbon wasn’t massive, sweet ashy chocolates and roast, tasty. Like Storm King, some bitterness in the finish. I need more of this to try it somewhat sober.
