I wrote: "Victory Storm King. This beer has a chocolate taste, though the standard stout-like chocolate taste and not the malty chocolate taste I encountered early with the Samuel Smith's Organic Chocolate Stout. Three beers is getting close to a bit much, but free beer is good beer! In any case, I feel like I've either had Victory Storm King before, but long ago, or not ever before." 7:16PM ET
I also wrote: "Oh wait, the beer was recently recommended to me. Yes, it is indeed a beer worthy of recommending. Oh right, all these beers were just a bit warm. That probably had a way of really opening up the flavor. Maybe that Samuel Smith's Organic Chocolate Stout wouldn't have been so bad if it were colder." 7:27PM ET
