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.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: dark dark brown,heavy tan head

S: bitter hops, roasted notes like chocolate and coffee. Interesting hoppy smell.

T: hoppy flavor brings out the roasted notes and bitterness. Very nice.

M: medium body for a stout and fairly heavy carbonation for an imperial stout.

O: solid beer, interesting change up. This is the anti-milk stout. Cost me $15 for a 6-pack, though.

From notes on 12/29/2011

4/5 Pous out dark as night with a two-finger, dark beige head with decent retention.

4/5 Smell is dark malts, some dark fruits, and some faint hops that really mellow the sweetness out.

4/5 Taste is nice dark malts, dark fruits, and a little more hops than in the nose. Taste is well balanced. I really like this beer.

4/5 Mouthfeel is medium+ and great for the style.
