Appearance: Storm King Stout pours black, but not necessarily the thickest RIS I've seen. Regardless, there is a full 3 fingers of dark tan head that has awesome retention. Lacing is nice and open and there is a ton of it that remains for the duration of the beer.
Smell: Roasted dark malts, coffee, bitter dark chocolate and burned toast stand out quite nicely.
Taste: Roasted dark malts and coffee show up on the front end, as well as a charred, smoky taste. There is a very nice hoppy bite on the back end. I was pleasantly surprised to find this amount of balance in this RIS. Not an overly complex taste, but still solid.
Mouthfeel/Drinkability: Mouthfeel is pretty medium bodied, a bit thin and not overly impressive for an RIS. Overall this is a very solid RIS and absolutely worth a try. For 9.1% ABV it hides it's alcohol very well. Not disappointing at all.
Serving type: bottle
