Storm King Imperial Stout - Victory Brewing (USA - Pennsylvania - Downington)
Opaque and very black. Smells strongly hoppy and of dark chocolate. It tastes quite bitter both like hops and bitter like dark chocolate and has an alcohol finish. The hops character mixes heavily with the chocolatey stout but there are melon hints before the two forces intertwine. This hoppy stout is called an American Stout (Americans do love their hops) which I think is a tasty and interesting take on traditional stouts.
