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.

jookos (5984) - FINLAND - JAN 4, 2017
Bottle. Black. Rich soft roasty malty, thick nose, going towards coffee, roasted coffee beans, real dry chocolate. Full bodied, smooth, roasty. The malts are really clearly present though, isnt a tongue numbing roast bomb. Pretty drinkabe for the style, doesnt burn through your palate. Flavourful, rich, nice balance.

Zlotta (2605) - Hagen, GERMANY - JAN 2, 2017
0.355 l bottle from BierPost.com, best before March 2016 (I believe almost two years old). Pitch black with a thin, frothy, slowly diminishing, beige head. Sweetish-malty, slightly roasty and quite fruity-resiny aroma of dark chocolate, licorice, coffee, a touch of pine and hints of blueberry. Moderately sweet, malty, quite roasty and very fruity-resiny taste of dark chocolate, coffee, licorice, pine, blueberry and tropical fruits, followed by a long, rather roasty-bitter, resiny and dry finish. Medium to full body, almost creamy and slightly effervescent mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Really tasty and satisfying, great hoppy Imperial Stout! I wonder how hoppy a fresh bottle would be?!

mateuszk (2513) - Poznań, POLAND - DEC 30, 2016
Bottle. In aroma there is completely nothing. In taste nice milky like chocolate, light roatiness. Medium body, silky texture, bitter finish. Ok.

retinadoc (236) - - DEC 25, 2016
UPDATED: DEC 26, 2016 Bottle. 3-way comparison tasting vs. North Coast Old Rasputin Russian Imperial Stout and Founders Breakfast Stout. Victory Strom King is the clear winner. The common denominator of these 3 relatively high-ABV stouts is sweet coffee-based aromas and flavors. Old Rasputin was a relative one-trick pony with a strong, unrelenting sweet boozy coffee experience with a lingering bitter finish. Founders Breakfast Stout was very sweet, and the coffee was definitely a light-roast grind, almost like Folgers instant decaf, although at least with a clean finish. Victory Storm King is smooth. Yes, all the sweet boozy coffee flavor is there, but no off-flavors, and the coffee is a definitely a richer dark-roast grind. All 3 are very good stouts, but the distinctions are clear, and the grades here are good, better and best.

kingaugusta (262) - Georgia, USA - DEC 6, 2016
Pours near black with a decent tan head. Nose is hop forward with a good dose of floral and bitter with some stout roast in the background. Flavor is a very smooth blend of coffee, chocolate, hops, alcohol, and a little dark fruit. Finish is subtle and sticky. Very drinkable for an imperial stout.

OnTheTrail (433) - Virginia, USA - DEC 3, 2016
Pours almost black, long lasting light brown head. Aroma is big rich cocoa and espresso. Hop bite, then bitter coffee, some sweeter malt notes, hints of dark fruit, dry hoppy finish. Mouthful is very smooth.

Werckmeister (2557) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - DEC 2, 2016
12oz bottle at home I think from Beergonzo (had it a couple weeks before "enjoying"). BB 20.05.2021. black color, small coffee-colored head. smells musty, licorice, earthy, spices. quite average smell. full body, soft carbonation, slick mouthfeel. tastes of licorice, cardboard, bit earthy, ashy, light veggies, tobacco, some sherry. finishes medium dry and lightly bitter with notes of cardboard, licorice and tobacco. quite unpleasant, BB date would suggest its quite alright but taste horribly old.

Mr az elnevezse alapjn sem tűnik rossznak az ital, pontjai alapjn sem lehet az, a pontozsok szma csak, ami rutinos srkstolknt nmi gyanra adhat okot, miutn a vlemnyezők nagy szma s a kapott pontok magas rtke htterben ritkn ll a vgletek itala, amilyenek pedig szmomra oly sokszor, oly kedvesnek bizonyultak mr. Kitltve merő feketesg, a tlts kzben azonban mr lthatv vlik, hogy a fny bizony tjrja a kimlő italt, amely a testessghez fűztt előzetes elvrsainkat inti csendre kiss. Ragads aromi ostys, barna kekszes, rumos kakakrmes jellegűek, s leginkbb az első percek sorn valamifle romlkony, napon hagyott csokoldbevonatos bukt is rasztanak, a koml virgszras, erőteljes illatai azonban inkbb adtak okot az aggodalmamra, a vrmes, leginkbb maltakzpont, szirupos imperial stoutok szerelmese lvn. Belekortyolva aztn majdhogynem szentsgtrst kvettem el, amikor egy black IPA karaktert hamarabb ismertem fel az italban, mint a cmkn is feltntetett besorols jellemzőit, a kvs, barnacukros, folykony csokolds vonsok azonban nyugtatlag hatottak, s maltasly tekintetben sincs szgyenkeznivalja a srnek, a koml szmomra tlsgosan is nyomul karaktere gy nmileg tomptva lett, egy effle ital esetben azonban jobb szeretem, ha egyb benyomsok ktik le a figyelmem, s az aroms komlk jtkt inkbb egy rnyalattal halvnyabb főzet kortyolsa kzben csodlhatom.
