A. Easy poor ½ inch thick tan head that is thick and sticky like foam insulation. Little carbonation. Color is black. Looks delicious.
S. Toffee, coffee, chocolate, roasted malt, sweet.
T. Roasted malt, chocolate, coffee, sweet toffee, and like the bottle suggests floral notes. Alcohol is noticeable.
M. Crisp, very light syrup.
O. This beer is like an RIS little brother. The taste has all the flavor of an imperial stout but lacks in thick mouth feel. However, Storm King packs one hell of a buzz for only 9.1%. I definitely recommend for imperial stout lovers.

Don't get me wrong, this is a good beer, it's just not a great stout. It pours an inky black but has more hops flavor than I expected. There's a bit of stout aftertaste but the bitterness come through more. I'll buy this again but if I'm in the mood for a stout, I'll look elsewhere. This is probably a very good imperial stout, I may have just misunderstood the genre.

Intense, roasty, chocolatey. Big hop aroma. Slightly warming as it goes down. Would really like to taste one of these after it sits for a year or two. A real winner.

Poured from a bottle with an enjoy by date of 11/15/2014; into a pub glass.
Appearance - black from top to bottom, until the very bottom of the glass, where a dark crimson hue is noticeable. Medium layer of foamy, khaki head leaves a beige curtain of lacing down the glass!
Smell - dark chocolate, caramel, cream and slow roasted coffee.
Taste - an assortment of flavors; bitter dark chocolate, robust coffee, and a subtle touch of caramel!
Feel - creamy, medium to heavy body; spectacular blend of roasted malts and bitter hops!
Overall - the much appreciated hop presence to this brew leads me to seek this one out. Reminds me a lot of Sierra Nevada's Narwhal and even compares to some heavier black ales!
