COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Villyzzz (233) - Espoo, FINLAND - SEP 17, 2016
Bottle at pub. Pours oily black with medium light brown head. Great lacing. Aroma is chocolate and coffee malts. Taste is really hoppy with subtle coffee and cocoa. Roasty aftertaste. Quite carbonated. Great but not excellent.

Cristobal37 (870) - Budapest, HUNGARY - SEP 13, 2016
Real bitter hoppy lighter bodied stout. Lots of hops on the finish. Some chocolate and faint spice in the finish. Not typical for the style but really tasty. Thanks kapusil.

GenDV138 (6433) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - SEP 11, 2016
12 oz bottle poured into a tulip. Enjoy by 2017, bottled in 2012 or 2013 Im guessing. Dark brownish black with light tan head. Aromas of roasty notes, dark chocolate, bitter floral. Tastes of roasty notes, light floral, dark chocolate, light licorice. Medium-full body with a dry finish.

0.355l bottle. Black body, light brown head. Aroma of chocolate, coffee, tangerine, grapes and grassy hops. Taste of chocolate, coffee, orange zest, grass and some grapefruit. Quite nice, but for this level of hoppyness, the body could be a bit thicker.

portwood (236) - Markham, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 4, 2016
Chocolate, roasted malt, raisins, soy sauce. Thick mouth feel, syrupy, soft carbonation, slightly boozy. Spicy, nutty, burnt toast, very dry finish. A little less bitterness would get it to 4.5 (bottle best before 1/27/21)

TheKernOwl (207) - West Sussex, ENGLAND - AUG 29, 2016
Like a v v hoppy balsamic reduction (no bad thing) initially. Later the hops came to the fore; they are like those in Guinness, turned up to 17. When warmed up it had a bit more of the Imperial about it (with a little fish sauce). Overall a sort of Black IPA-stout cross; for me, maybe slightly too hoppy to relax into di riddim?

Like Victorys Golden Monkey, this oness ABV sneaks up on you. Subtle flavors balance out without obvious comparisons to foodstuff--how I like IMHO.

metalspice (778) - Jevnaker, NORWAY - AUG 27, 2016
Helt svart med lavt brunt skum. Knekk, karamell, kaffe og vanilje i duften. Knekk og kaffe dominerer smaken. Myk munnflelse, burde Vrt litt tykkere.

Black beer with small head. Malty-smoky-coffee aroma an taste. High abv dominates taste imo. Mouthfeel reaonable, aftertaste quite ok.
