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.

A - Pours a deep black with just a trace of ruby edging. A thick tan head gives way to very clumpy lacing.

S - Coffee. Roasted malts. Peppery hops. Rich astringent in there as well.

T - Roasted malts. Coffee malts. Dark chocolate. Hops is peppery but with almost a citrusy finish. Very clean.

M - Lush but on the lighter side. Solid carbonation for an Imperial Stout. Lively.

O - Absolutely great stout. Highly recommend. Very drinkable for the style.

Enjoy by date Nov 28, 2017. Poured into a DFH chalice.

A - Poured a black opaque with a one-finger tan rocky head. Slightly vicous.

A - Coffee, dark chocolate, sweetness.

T - Coffee, dark chocolate, faint licorice (don't let this turn you off if you are not a fan of licorice, it is faint), nice dry hoppy finish with some coffee/dark roast malt bitterness.

MF - Smooth with a dry finish.

O - Well balanced. Dark roast coffee flavors dominate. Slightly warming, but hides its 9.1% ABV well. Victory says you can age this one five years. Its ready now. Excellent beer.
