COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This Imperial Stout is about drawing a line in the sand. It has a consistency similar to 5W-30. Adventurous tattoo artists have used it in place of ink. If left outside during winter, it won’t freeze, even in Minnesota. Beneath the dark exterior, a swirling ambush of coffee and chocolate flavors await, held up by a decadent malt backbone. Like its namesake, The Worthy Adversary’s movements are mysterious. Be wary–it could strike anywhere, any time.

Bottle, tasted 06/02/2013, thanks to Mac. Pours black, little head with a small haze on the surface. Thick aroma of roast and chocolate, some vanilla notes. Taste is deep roast and sweet chocolate, anise and coffee bitterness. Thick, heavy body, nearly creamy. Tasty, not bad at all.

arkurzynski (1519) - Combined Locks, Wisconsin, USA - APR 23, 2013
Bottle from portableparty - thanks. Deep brown to black pour with thin tan head. Aroma is deep grainy, acidic roasted malt, coffee, chocolate pudding, caramel corn, faint dark fruit, and a moderate amount of oxidative cardboard and mild soy. Flavor is deep roasted malt, coffee, bitter chocolate, and faint pruny dark fruit. Fairly acidic. Lingering acidic roasted grain. Thick. A bit acidic for me. Nose is less than desirable, but ground is made up in the flavor department. Imagine this one has the guts to be a good candidate for barrel-aging.
