Storm King Stout is thick, velvety, and loaded with coffee and chocolate flavor.

Storm King poured black with a thick milk-chocolate colored head that dissipated quickly leaving thin weak rings of lace. It's incredibly delicious. It has notes of bitter chocolate and espresso and leaves a lingering smooth velvety feel on the tongue with a slightly bitter finish.

Storm King is a great stout with loads of flavor, a great feel, and a nice alcohol warmth. It was perfect on the hot day I first had it and clearly would be perfect at the end of a winter day.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

A: Pitch black. Finger of tan head. Large and small bubbles. Head is fairly rocky.

S: Big, roasty, dark chocolate, baker's cocoa, coffee. Surprising amount of coffee in this one. Very pleasing underlying dark fruit. Plum, fig, berry.

T: Very nice. Big roastiness here. Lots of dark coffee, dark chocolate, roasted grain. Hint of burnt nutiness. Midly astringent towards the end, with a definite herbal/woodsy hoppiness coming through. The hop bitterness was a bit surprising, and really plays through toward the finish. Finishes back on the stout notes, with hits of chicory and even a touch of smoke. Very dry in the finish.

M: Big, but not overwhelming. Carbonation is minimal, but the malt does not overwhelm this one.

O: What a beast. I can see why this was a real game changer when it came out. Can definitely see how some call it a black IPA. Damn fine beer, regardless. Will actively seek this one out again.

A- this beer is black with a very nice light tan head that is consistent throughout the brew.
S- light coffee and chocolate
T- this is one of the hoppier stouts that I've had. It starts out with a light chocolatey flavor but then lends way to a dark roasted coffee flavor. The hops come into play and leave the tounge with a roasty bitterness.
M- medium. Not very smooth like I prefer with my stouts. Mouthful feels more like an IPA.
O- this is a great beer. So glad that victory started selling in ky. Gonna try all of their brews.

4.11/5  rDev +0.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

This poured with a relative thickness but still kept a lively carbonated look. The color was deeply opaque with a khaki head that was more film than foam.

The nose holds a bit of dryness but despite this there is some marshmallow sweetness. Mostly chocolate malt meets the nose but tones of smoke or ember, Graham cracker, mint and toasted oats also are found.

The taste follows the nose for the most part as a dry smoky or roasted chocolate malt is prevalent. Smoky ember, toasted oat, dry coffee and charcoal meets up with the maltiness.What I like above the nose is the assertive nature of the flavor. Mostly dry roast or toasted qualities the flavor holds the palate throughout. This does end with a hint of bitterness that influences feel. As with the feel an alcohol warmth creeps in.

I'm a little late to jump on the Storm King bandwagon, as its not been available to KY until recently, but I'm thrilled to get a chance.
