Year of Beer Paintings – Day 143

The daily beer painting is of Storm King Imperial Stout by Victory Brewing Company.  To say the least, this beer is very flavorful.  To do it justice, I would compare this beer to a lightning strike to your senses.  The first sip from the bottle is charged with bitterness, however, as the original shock settles and the beer aerates, the flavor mellows.  After an hour, this beer is like sipping a cold, hoppy, chocolate-flavored coffee.  The straight IBU overload is balanced out in time by the dark grains. An electrical storm comes in strong with thunder and lightening.  This beer is an electrical storm of hops, and like a storm changing the weather, this stout exploded on my tongue and affected my palette.  This beer is a 9% heavy-hitter, so don’t take a sixer to the beach if you expect to have an evening.

Victory, you brewed up one hell of a stout!  I am impressed; a stout that can make my head turn doesn’t come along that often.  Way to go, and keep up the good work! Your beer appeals to my taste!

You can purchase this painting, or a limited-edition print at my Etsy shop.
