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.

UPDATED: DEC 8, 2005 One of my favorite stouts. Luckily its readily available in my area. Great thick, roasted flavor, bitter hops, tongue coating goodness. I really need to start buying this more often.

Bottle. Mondial de la bire 2005. Deep black color with nice brown head and nice lacings. Roasted malt and smoke aroma. Taste of roasted malt, sugar and smoked in the aftertaste, very nice. Bire de couleur noir opaque avec un bon collet brun et qui colle bien au verre. Odeur de malt grill et de fum. Au gout, cest le malt grill, elle est galement sucr et un gout de fum en arrire gout. Excellente.

aquired via trade botld 10-20-04 sniff of the bottle gave me a nice hoppy aroma. Pours a deep dark black color w/ light carb on the glass and a big thick brown head that looks like a brown cream of wheat. Nice roasted malt aroma dominates the scent a good amount of bready/doughy scent and a nice grass hop. Even something else like a dried dark fruit and the tinies smell of alcohol. The palate is fairly well carbonatd well creamy good body coats well but not that thick. Flavor is a big rich roasted malt bitter baking chocolate a lightly bitterfinish and an almost syruppy taste. Overall some dang good stuff w/ a hint of alcohol in the throat.

(12 oz bottle: Obtained in trade with jasonp, thanks Jason!) Bottled Dec 04. You know, Im just not as impressed with this beer as most people. People seem to rave about how incredible this beer is, but while I think its a very good beer, I cant even say that its in the top echelon of the Imperial Stout category. Chocolaty, roasty and bitter, but not as robust as some others in this style. A good supply of hops is able to break through and have some presence. Full bodied, but it has a less chewy mouthfeel than other imperial stouts. The disappointing nose is somewhat roasty, but smells a bit like yeast and cheese. Nearly black and opaque, except at the edges, where its translucent and mahogany in color. The small, dark tan head dissipates rapidly and doesnt leave much lacing.

UPDATED: OCT 19, 2011 Much more impressed this time around. Lots of coffee and roast aromas but they combine well with a powerful hop-driven palate. Some tropical fruit sweet (hops) as well. All good fun and very very drinkable for a 9%er.

Dark brown, looks text book. Not much happening on the nose, mild roasted malt notes at best. Nice balance in the mouth, strictly medium bodied, feels a little extracted with some sharpness on the finish. OK roast and chocolate round out the palate. Well made but certainly not in the class of the Stone equivalent.

UPDATED: JUN 15, 2005 Awesome! Great stout. Smokey, but not a bitter after taste like most stouts. Could drink them all night(but pay for it!)
