It's a little strong for my taste, but you can tell it's quality brewed and Victory knows their stuff. I'd try it again in hopes that I can handle it, but maybe that's why I shouldn't have had it in the first place.

Poured into a snifter from a 12 oz bottle.

Color is black and opaque with a nice thick tan head. Really nice lacing for a stout. Smell is really interesting. Lots of dark roasted coffee, dark chocolate with some underlying sweetness, booze and citric hops. Flavor is strong hops on the palate - bitter chocolate and coffee - followed by some roasted malt flavor and finishing with a strong hop bite. Finish is quite bitter and lingering for a stout. Body is medium/full with a bite from the carbonation and alcohol, lots of sticky hop resins.

Overall, if you like IPAs you'll like this stout. More like a black IPA with some stout character. I like it, but IPA is my favorite style.

Good overall imperial stout but too hoppy for my personal taste.

Here in Michigan we have many world class imperial stouts, and storm king seems to fly under the radar on our shelves. I decided to pick it up finally, and I could not have been more surprised. Not complex at all. Straight forward, simple, tasty, RIS. The only thing I could ask to be improved is the aroma.
