Victory Storm King Stout

This is really a follow up to my previous post about my trip to Charleston.

I forgot to mention that when we went to the Piggly Wiggly, I noticed that they carried Victory Brewing Co. beers. I was excited because I still have not had their HopDevil IPA (Victory does not distribute to my area). Unfortunately, the only beer they had was the Storm King Stout (well not that unfortunate).

Storm King Stout is a Russian Imperial Stout with the alcohol content ringing in at 9.10% ABV.

With a huge, Pacific Northwest hop aroma & character upfront, Storm King subsides into massive, roast malt complexity. More flavor than mere words can adequately describe. Rich and substantial, it will warm your heart.

I picked up a sixer of this to take back to Florida. Not a bad brew but it does not top my favorite stout of all time: Old Rasputin from the North Coast Brewing Company.

  1. Hey there!

    I am glad you got to try a Victory beer. They make some really enjoyable beers. I have had the Hop devil IPA and also the Belgian style beer known as Golden Monkey. Very smooth and strong. I am not sure if it is a triple but it is strong and very smooth and sweet. I also don’t have a very good selection of Victory beers where I live but pick them up if I get a chance when I see them somewhere. i am interested in trying more. I would recommend the Golden Monkey for sure. That Russian Imperial stout sounds nice.

    I also enjoy another brewery a lot called Stone Brewing. They have an excellent pale ale and an IPA as well as a special IPA called Ruination IPA that I enjoy alot. Other great beers by them but are hard to find is called Old Guardian. There is just something about there beer that always gets me excited to try any new brew of theirs I haven’t tried yet.

    Later man!
