Beer Tasting: Victory Storm King

Victory Storm King Imperial Stout is brewed by Victory Brewing in Downingtown PA. Have you tasted this beer? Let us know what you think. As a suggestion, try to keep the review as brief as possible for each of the following: appearance; smell; taste; mouthfeel; and drinkability. Appearance Adam: brownish black with a tan head Bryan: black as night with a thin-to-medium coffee (with cream) colored head Smell Adam: good dose of hops warning you of what's to come Bryan: not a big and full but a nose pleasant enough to tease you Taste Adam: roasted, hoppy bitterness with a slight sweetness and some alcohol...I love it Bryan: copy that Adam; the taste is the highlight of this beer...great roasted flavor, good dose of hops but not overpowering, tinge of alcohol in the finish Mouthfeel Adam: carbonated and substantial Bryan: pleasing carbonation; body of the beer coats the mouth as it passes through Drinkability Adam: if you like imperial stouts then, "Yes". This is a great example of the style. Bryan: Easy drinking, but careful, this is still a "big boy" drink ;-) Seconds? Adam: not if you are driving ;-) Bryan: Yes, please, bring a few more
