Victory Storm King Stout ....

Keeping things rolling with some serious stouts - tonight is a Storm King Imperial Stout from Victory Brewing Company.  The twelve ounce bottle shows 9.1% ABV.

The Storm King poured with a thick, very brown head.  The color is so dark, it is hard not to call it black.  The aroma is somewhat high-alcohol, with hops, and hints of coffee and chocolate.  The flavor strength is not over the top - maybe a strong medium.  It has a nice balance of hops and malt, with a little more emphasis on hops than one might expect.  Not as 'heavy' as some other hearty stouts.  Definitely higher-alcohol, and it warms you up going down.  Slightly bitter aftertaste.
