12 oz bottle poured at cellar temperature into a red wine glass. Pours an impenetrable black with two fingers of brown head with excellent retention and an attractive frumpiness. Aromas are roasty and sweet, like a bunch of dark fruits that have been charred in a fire. Maybe a whiff of coffee grounds and dark chocolate if I use my imagination, but not to the extent of other members of its style. The complex flavors and weighty body redeem the simplicity of the nose. Flavors of intermingling roastiness, burnt sugar, dark chocolate, and bitter smoke amount to a winning combination. All in all, Storm King lives up to its name by offering a tasty and (given the high abv) efficient way to withstand the winter chill.
