Victory Brewing Company - Downingtown
Pennsylvania, United States
victorybeer.com

Style: American Double / Imperial Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 9.10%

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.

Drank this from a nonic.

A - Nice pitch-black appearance, with good head, and decent lacing on the glass.

S - Nice roasted smell, some bitternenss but not overly.

T - Very easy to drink. Almost had to do a double-take on the abv while drinking, although afterward, it starts to catch up with you. Fair amount of bitterness, but it's balanced nicely with the sweet chocolately flavors. Very satisfying.

M - Good, rich, medium/medium-full body. Slight hint of chewiness.

O - As expected (from Victory), this is a fine beer. I'll drink this again.
