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.

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.

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.

12 oz bottle shared by DrSilverworm via Paul and Jamie. Pours a dark cola brown color with a thin beige film. The aroma and flavor had dark roasted malts to the point where they were ashy and burnt, dark chocolate, earthy bitterness, a hint of smoke, some dark fruit character, big ashy component, dry, opened up more as it warmed but still very roasted malt forward.

12oz bottle, labeled 9.5%, 81 IBU. Bit of a low fill. Thanks to Paul & Jamie. Shared. Code on the bottle is too cryptic for me to bother recording it. Very dark brown color, with a minimal ring of bubbly head. Some mild roast in the nose. Little dark fruit in the flavor, some soy, hint of dark chocolate. Medium-plus body. Bit thin. Light, kind of crisp carbonation. Mild slick texture, leading to a light dry finish. Moderate to bigger bitter taste, moderate sweet, mildly sugary. Interesting, solid one.

Nasty bitter notes. Like the barley was burnt or something... I won't bother buying again, unless I forget about it, which is why I mistakenly bought it this time ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
