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!

750ml bomber: 2011 bottle, been sitting in the fridge for a long time. This one pours an inky black color. There was a small tan head on it. Nice nose. Lots of different aromas. Some bourbon, chocolate, vanilla, molasses, roasted malts and fruits. The taste is superb! Just a hint of the bourbon, very smooth texture. Hope they make this one again!
