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.

Dark brown/black pour with a short mocha colored head. Chocolate and coffee aromas with a hint of vanilla and hops. Taste starts sweet and finishes hoppy-bitter and boozy. Flavors of chocolate, coffee, anise, and booze. A mans stout. Time to bury a fallen soldier and stick one in the cellar. I have a feeling my 3.8 rating could go much higher. NOTE: Fulton War & Peace is Worthy Adversary + Peace Coffee (Awesome!)

On tap @ Fulton. Pours inky brownish black with thick mocha head. Aroma is roasty dark chocolate malts, soy sauce, oak, licorice. Taste is similar - rich dark chocolate throughout, dry and oaky on the finish. Nice thick creamy mouthfeel. Solid imperial stout.

Big bottle in a teku. Pours black with a beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, dark chocolate, faint notes of coffee and dark fruits, some light sweetness, and light bitterness. Flavor the same with the roast and chocolate dominating. Smooth texture. A good imperial stout.

drpimento (3173) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 13, 2016
Not bad. Very bitter with a little lingering sweetness. Some medicinal qualities under the cocoa, black patent, hint of molasses. Little out of balance on the bitter side for me.

Tmoney99 (13587) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 25, 2016
Bottle shared by Dr Silverworm. Poured a black color with an average frothy brown head that lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate roasted chocolate malt aroma. Medium to heavy dark malt flavor with a medium to heavy dark sweet finish of moderate to long duration. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. This is a solid beer.
