Notes / Commercial Description:
Emerging from the deepest shades of darkness, a rolling crescendo of flavors burst forth from this robust stout. The thundering, hoppy appeal of Storm King subsides into the mellow subtleties of roasted malt, exhibiting an espresso-like depth of character in its finish. An exquisite blend of imported malts and whole flower American hops merge harmoniously in this complex ale. Discover the dark intrigue of Storm King, as it reveals the rich, substantial flavors that it holds within.

Poured from bottle into pint glass.

A: Deep, dark coloring. Small level of head that dissipated but heavy lacing is evident.

S: Chocolate and coffee tones on the nose, little fainter than I would have expected however.

T & M: Creamy initial taste, followed by dry bitterness from the hops. Very nice representation of the style.

D: Highly drinkable, high ABV not apparent at all. One of the better RIS that I have had.
