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 wont 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 Adversarys movements are mysterious. Be waryit could strike anywhere, any time.

Pours an opaque black from the bottle with thin wispy tan head that leaves moderate lace. Aroma of dark roast coffee and malt notes, hint of acrid coffee, dark chocolate, and a hint of soy. Taste follows, a mild bitterness, and a mild booze. Solid imperial stout.

A big imperial stouts makes a statement. I have not tried enough Fulton beers to get a sense of their full potential but so far I can tell they are more than a one trick pony. Their higher gravity beers match the quality of the more sessionable IPAs. If I lived closer I could see making their tasting room a regular stop.

Aroma / Appearance - A mocha head surfs on a wave of deep black oily liquid. Roasted coffee, almonds, chocolate, and dry malts overwhelm the nose. The density might not match the best out there but for a regional brand it checks off all the right boxes.

Flavor / Palate - Dry malts, coffee, and warm full bodied cocoa fill the mouth like slightly watered down black ink. The coffee profile sweeps into the finish where it is joined by raspberries and a strong malty texture. From start to finish this does everything right. If youre in the area and have already given Darkness a shot dont overlook this local gem.

Big inky pour. Aroma is pretty coffee heavy for a beer I dont think actually contains coffee. Complex roasted malts, coffee, bittersweet chocolate and earth. Medium to full bodied. Nice.
