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!

Good stout. Did not get a whole lot of bourbon, more like a standard imperial stout. A little thin on the body.

Uploading old ratings that were missing comments. One of my favorites. Huge bourbon, chocolate and roasted malt notes. Bottle ages really well. Heat drops a lot after about a year. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

From a bottle. Very dark brown. Light tan foamy head. Smells lime dates, plums, figs. Tastes very sweet, like dates.

BeerandBlues2 (13594) - Escondido, California, USA - MAR 17, 2013
Bottle. Pours opaque black with a large, creamy and frothy tan head with long retention and excellent lacing. Aroma is dark chocolate and roast malt with prune and figs, licorice and earthy hops with oak and bourbon. Flavor is malt dominant with medium hops and light bitterness, dark fruity esters and a sweet finish. Full body and medium carbonation.

JulienHuxley (5843) - Sherbrooke, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 17, 2013
Bottle. Dark oily black pour with light tan head that recedes. Aroma is quite molasses forward, bourbon is a very subtle contribution (not a bad thing!), chocolatey notes, roasted character is tame. Taste is sweet, molasses, vanilla, light booze flavor. Palate is a bit oily, heavy body, low carb. Good.

3.4
maneliquor (3514) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAR 15, 2013
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours jet black with a small light tan head which quickly disappears. Nose shows pepper, bourbon, vanilla, sweet christmas cake fruits and roasted malts. Heavy bourbon and vanilla in the taste. Quite plummy and raisin forward. Soaked heavy, dark fruits. Very roasty and bitter sweet. Solid but didn’t amaze me like some others

phikus01 (112) - New York, USA - MAR 9, 2013
Bourbon and soaked roasty chocolate aroma. Massive sweet chocolate vanilla oak bourbon molasses flavor. Wish I had one to age a year or two

MadIndian (2743) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 9, 2013
Bottle from Canals. This was a well balanced imperial stout. Nice blend of roast, smoke, wood, hop and chocolate. A good dry finish. Nicely done.

Bottle. Pours black with thin tan head. Chocolate and nut aroma. Taste is thin chocolate milk, light oak taste

3.8
elgiacomo (745) - Ringgold/Fort Oglethorpe, Georgia, USA - FEB 27, 2013
750ml bottled November 2011. Served at cellar temperature.

Pours black with a three finger light brown head that leaves some clumpy rings of lacing and holds a good cap.

Aroma is oak, charred oak, bourbon, vanilla, roasted malts, some coffee & chocolate, burnt marshmallow, earthy hops. Good to very good strength.

Flavor follows suit, roasted malts, vanilla, oak, bourbon, burnt malts, coffee, chocolate, marshmallow, anise, Storm King’s signature hop bite, mild to moderate sweetness, good bitterness, some alcohol. Pretty oaky. More oak than bourbon.

Mouthfeel is medium to full bodied, creamy but with a good carbonation bite.

A nice step up from the regular Storm King, although it retains a lot of the base beer’s character. A lot of charred oak presence and the bourbon is there but not overpowering. There are certainly better barrel-aged Stouts out there, but this is pretty solid.
