Victory Storm King Imperial Stout

This is a big beer from Victory, and is one of their best sellers. An Imperial Stout at 9.1%, it’ll make your evening, and I am hoping it will make mine. 🙂 It is appropriate that there is a big storm on the way this evening. I will enjoy it all the more.

This beer pours dark black. Very dark black that does not let any light through. The head on this is beige and leaves a ring of head.

The aroma is very roasted, dark malts and grains with a light bitter chocolate and a touch of hops. Almost a bit of coffee on this as well, but it is bitter coffee.

The flavor is dark malts, bitter hops and chocolate. There is a mix between a roasted grain finish and earthy hops near the end. Almost reminds me of a Black IPA. Man this is good stuff though.
