Victory Storm King on the hand pump

Went to Kite & Key like usual yesterday but didn't find anything to order that immediately jumped out at me. So, just to see if I really don't like it, I ordered a Victory Storm King from their hand pump.
Slight roast with a hint of the hops on the nose. Sort of bitter up front, followed by roast, then finished with a mix of bitterness and chocolate. For an imperial stout, it's amazingly hoppy even being poured from the handpump. For me, the flavors just never melded properly and it was just unpleasantly bitter. I don't know if the recipe has changed over the years or what since I swear I used to like it but now it's just bleh to me. Oh well. At least I finally know not to order it again.
