Year old 750mL bottle brought out for a going away party of a co-worker/fellow beer enthusiast. Poured into taster glasses after hours at our local brewpub.

A: Jet black, opaque with hint of weak coffee color along edges. Frothy buckskin head that falls into thin layer. Not much visible for carbonation.

S: Nice blend of roast, coffee-like malts, bready base malt, figs, overripe plums, and I pick up the anise/licorice too. Not boozy, no hops.

T: Similar to the nose, roasty without being abusive to the palate, base malt is more caramel now. Get some of the dark fruitiness again but as an undertone. Anise is there. Pleasing warmth and smooth finish.

M: Full but not heavy. I tend to like the viscous RIS's but this one works as is. Round mouthfeel that is balanced throughout only enhances the flavors. Not boozy but alcohol is there to cut the finish off clean.

O: Very pleasing RIS. Wish I could have had one to try young before this year old example. I would definitely buy again and age again. It is a very balanced beer that shows off what this great young brewery is capable of. Now I need to get some War & Peace to compare. (1,141 characters)

750ml bottle poured into tulip 1/5/13 cheers Rutager for yet another bottle of goodness

A I'm sounding like a broken record but its black liquid with a deep cola edge, two fingers of mocha foam with lots of unorganized lace, ends up as a paper thin film that still leaves lace

S straightforward but solid, dark fruit, coffee, milk chocolate, faint licorice and char

T chocolates slightly darker and I'm getting less dark fruit, a little booze and espresso compared to the coffee I was smelling

M not overly thick for the color but the bubbles give it some body, a little char and chocolate covered coffee beans on the finish

O dark fruits and dark roast, a good example of the style but nothing to really make it stand out, worth trying for sure but nothing about its going to change your life

I've been drinking so many great stouts lately its going to take something amazing to blow me away this week. Solid beer and one could call it a "mellow" RIS, hits all the spots though I suppose price would determine if I drank it on a regular basis or not (1,061 characters)

Thanks for yet another new one Steasy66 and another from Maximum12. Two fantastic traders from MN!

Appearance. Pours thick and black with half a finger of light brown head.

Smell. Dark chocolate, caramel and vanilla, some dark malts, and a little bit of roasted nuts, cherry and raisins.

Taste. Dark bittersweet chocolate, some dates and a bit of coffee. Some dry roasty bitterness and a bit of smoke in the finish and quite dry throughout.

Mouthfeel. On the low side of full bodied, medium-low smooth carbonation.

Overall. A very nice RIS that isn't too sweet or sticky. I appreciate that and am enjoying this very much. (626 characters)

One of the last bottles I picked up at Lowry Hill before #2 moved on to other things.
From the distance of pouring had a really nice light fruity quality. Closer to the glass it became more rich, a little boozy, soft but prominent roast (coffee), and some darker fruits. Luscious.
Poured with minimal head. Very dark and black - hard to find any color on the edges.
For a fresher RIS has pretty good blending and some maturity to it-however it still has a little bite to it. Roast flavor and dryness on the finish. Even a little spiciness in time blending through the drink. Some darker fruits that seem to come and go.
Pretty heavy (both in appearance with pouring) and a reasonably chewy body. Carbonation is done nicely and doesn't take away from the smoothness of the drink. Feels a little bigger than the 9.5% and the alcohol flavors and nip seem a little bigger than that too.
Largely malt with even a fairly fresh bottle shows little hop flavors-although some appears to show later with a light "green" freshness. In time there is a vegetable quality to the aroma in particular that isn't so pleasant, but then it moved to some real deliciousness when I poured the bottom of the bottle. In sum an overall enjoyable beverage. Good to a little more than that.
I hate to say it but at $10 per bottle when there are (much) better others at that price for a 4-pack this one won't be at the top of my list of must buy beers.
This is the 100th review for this beer. (1,465 characters)

Thanks to maximum12 for this bottle!

750 ml brown glass bottle served in a snifter, reviewed live:

A - Pours an opaque black color with a rich, tan, thick and creamy head of three fingers. Retention is absurdly good for the high ABV (it didn't move for a good 10 minutes), and the head leaves sticky lacing as it recedes.

S - Rich chocolate malts alongside restrained coffee. Plum, licorice and raisin. Sweet chocolates are prominent. Deeply roasted malt body. A moderate strength and sweet aroma.

T - Forceful roasted malts and the same dark fruit notes I'd found on the nose dominate. ON the sweeter side, but surprisingly well balanced. Milk chocolate heavy. Subtle coffee when I look for it. A touch bitter on the finish. No alcohol presence whatsoever. Very well built but not entirely complex.

M - Creamy, thick and silky smooth. Perfect carbonation.

D - High quality and insanely drinkable. I'd love to have it again (or the BA version). I'd look forward to trying other Fulton beers if I'd be so lucky. (1,020 characters)

Thanks so much to Audiophile for sending me this local goodie. I have to start this review with: OH MY GOD! This beer is amazing. I've drank a lot of renowned stouts lately, and this one is in my top 3.

A: Dark, completely opaque, but not quite oil-black. Nice tan coffee head, and beautiful lacing.

S: Dark fruit. Raisins and plums. But not too sickly sweet, but very sweet. Quite different smelling then tasting.

T: Oh man, this one is special. It follows the nose - dark fruits. Raisins and plums. However, you get that sweet coffee bite at the end of the sip, and chocolate and toasted malts. The 9.5% ABV is nearly invisible in this stout. Once again, this beer is a treat. The after taste is almost purely roasted malt. I need Audiophile to send me more!

M: This is by far the best mouth feel of any stout that I've ever had. I have drank BCBS, BCBCS, Dark Lord '10, Lil' B, and Williamsburg Cafe Royale in the past month. This one is sweeter than saccharine (not literally). Medium feel, not too heavy, not too light, just perfect. It's still full, and leaves a little 'thickness' in your mouth a few minutes after a sip. Once again, near impeccable.

O: This one is a rare one. Find anyone you know in Minnesota and beg them to search all their bottle shops for this. I'm not quite sure why I've never heard of it before, I asked Audiophile to find me a rare, local stout, and he couldn't have done any better. This beer deserves to be a hit. Out of the 5 aforementioned stouts, this one easily takes second behind BCBCS. If anything deserves to be named worthy adversary, it is this. (1,601 characters)

Thanks to Jeff for this one. 750ml capped bottle into a Brooklyn Brewery snifter. Shared with schen9303.

Beer pours a thick, pitch black. .5 finger dark cream colored head with moderate retention. Lacing is thick and layered with great stick. Thin legs. Very solid.

Nose is roasted malt, liquorice, maple, smoke, and cocoa. A touch of maple bacon in there too. Nice. Moderately aromatic.

Opens liquorice, roast, cocoa, and chocolate. Leather, fudge and some prunes and other dark fruit and more liquorice in the middle. End is smoke and molasses sweetness. Aftertaste of bittersweet chocolate and molasses. Pretty good.

Full bodied with low carbonation. Bubbly and lively in the mouth and smooth and warm going down. Finishes messy with a lingering aftertaste. Appropriate.

I've never heard of this beer before now so this was a pleasant surprise. There's a touch of a strange meat flavor in the nose and taste but it works with the dark chocolate, liquorice, and maple notes. Nice feel carries this one through pretty decently. Worth trying. (1,052 characters)

Bottle shared by Treebs - thanks Ryan! Served in a tulip.

A - Late-rising tan foam settles to a thin collar, and minimal lace. Very dark brown body that verges on black.

S - This is definite a 'classic' RIS, with hefty notes of roasted malts, anise, char, espresso, dark chocolate, and dark bread. Perhaps a hint of fruity English ale yeast in the periphery.

T - The taste is quite similar, with the aforementioned char, anise, a touch of smoke, and nearly burnt malts. Very low sweetness, with a bit of dark chocolate creeping through. Perhaps a touch harsh in the finish.

M - Medium-full body, dry, roasty texture, lower carbonation, and a touch of alcohol warmth. Pretty much what you'd expect from this style.

D - A solid, well-executed, RIS. Quite a bit different from the other ones you'd find available in the Minneapolis area, with its high attenuation and heavy emphasis on roast. Nice for a glass, but not something I could drink in large quantities due to palate fatigue. (987 characters)

Poured from a 750 ml bottle into an unbranded short stemmed tulip/snifter

Pours opaque black with a one finger tan head that dissipates fairly quickly. Viscous is an understatement; this brew is like motor oil and is definitely among the thickest RIS's I've had. Big roasted malt, roasted grain, and the deep aroma of mixed dark fruit. Huge robust roasted malt, roasted barley, and other grains joined midpalate by molasses, plums,, sticky sweet prunes and dried black cherry. Finishes with more robust roasted grain notes, combined with a strong bittering hop presence. As mentioned huge devastating full body, chewy, smooth with oily slickness, even some hints of creaminess. This brew is impressive and stands among the better RIS's that I've had. It's surprising that some reviews have referenced a lack of complexity. I find it to be extremely complex and incredibly satisfying. A Worthy Adversary indeed; prepare yourself before pouring a glass of this exceptional beer. (977 characters)

750ml bottle, a sick extra and local from laymansbeerfan (thanks!) split into pint glasses...

A: Dark red pour yields a nearly opaque brown with blood red tints...big Guinness-like brown head leaves minimal lacing.

S: Balanced nose with roasted malts and ample dark sweetness...malt, dark caramel, and milk chocolate. No alcohol detected...

T: Follows the nose, finishes with a coffee bitterness and a bit of drying alcohol...deeply roasted malt is almost burnt on the aftertaste.

MF: Medium body, dry-ish...lower carbonation.

O: Pretty straight-forward and one-dimensional. Solid. (586 characters)

Thanks to supercolter for the bottle. 750 ml bottle served in a CCB snifter.

A: Pours a dark black color with brown edges. A light khaki head forms on the pour and recedes to a thin ring. Splotchy lace is left down the glass.

S: Dark chocolate with a mild roasted malt body. Some light fruity yeast residuals. A little dark fruit.

T: The roasted malt presence is heavier in the taste. Bakers chocolate with a bitter espresso finish. A little char as well.

M: Medium bodied with a little bit of chew to it. Medium carbonation with a bitter roasted finish.

O: I really enjoyed this stout. Roasty and smooth with a little a chew to it. Nice chocolate and espresso notes. (672 characters)

Bottle thanks to yamar68, poured into a snifter.

Pour: Super black body with a fantastic finger plus head. Some really nice sticky lacing and some definite legs as well.

Smell: Big roasted chocolate and a definite floral hop presence. Some bitterness even on the nose. A touch of molasses.

Taste: Really sticky chocolate and sweet toffee. Lots of floral hops again. Some bitter coffee. Sticky sweet on the finish.

Mouthfeel: Nice velvety mouthfeel, but a definite bitterness throughout. Very sticky throughout.

Overall. A really nice creamy imperial stout. Rather one dimensional, but it highlighted all the aspects of a stout that I enjoy. Would definitely have a again, and I think this could be something special thrown into a barrel. (742 characters)

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Presentation: 750 mL chilled bottle split with a friend and poured into some Sierra Nevada tulips.

Appearance: Dark brown to black in color with a nice, creamy mocha colored head. Plenty of carbonation on the first pour.

Aroma: Dark chocolate and roasted coffee beans upfront. A pretty strong background of dark fruits and caramel. Some light earthy tones from the hops weave in and out as well.

Taste: A bit more bitter than the aroma, the dark chocolate and coffee beans provide a really nice, roasted taste upfront. As it warms, the caramel and dark fruits in the background really balance out the bitterness well. There is definitely a touch of vanilla and some light pine bitterness in there as well. Really balanced and complex.

Mouthfeel: A bit lighter than I would expect from an imperial stout. Plenty of carbonation.

Overall, a really tasty and balanced imperial stout. It doesn't have any features that stand out completely to set it apart, but it is well made and tasty. The coffee/chocolate pairs well with the sweetness of the background malts. I would definitely have this again. (1,100 characters)

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.75

A: Black with a modest tan head. Retention is not great.
S: Strong black licorice, light fruityness, milk chocolate.
T: Dominated by bracingly heavy char that lingers through entire sip. There's also a bit of dark fruit and cocoa apparent and more licorice. Pretty dry finish. As a whole, flavor comes off a bit simplistic and dull.
M: Body is full with light carbonation. Very thick, smooth feel is the strong point of the beer for me.

Overall, nothing I would consider a flaw. But as far as imperial stouts go, it was pretty unremarkable. (541 characters)

A - Poured out a jet-black color with a one-finger, brown head of foam. Sudsy lace.

S - It smelled roasty and chocolatey. Some coffee notes.

T - Roasty, dark chocolate, burnt molasses and rich coffee flavor. It tastes really great.

M - Crisp and smooth. A medium to full bodied stout.

O - This is a fantastic brew. Beginning to wish I brought one home to Missouri. (368 characters)

No known freshness dating.

A= Pours a very very thick looking black color with a thin skin of head slowly rising out of it. At first it looked flat but the head does slowly rise out with little retention and lacing on the glass.

S= The smell is a wonderful nutty sort of roastyness to it. Coffee and a nice chocolatey sweetness to it. It has a sort of milk chocolate type aroma to it I think. There is an indescribale softness to it.

T= The taste is again wonderful. All the flavors in the nose come through as well as the sort of softness that I can't really describe. The roast is the most dominate flavor in the taste and the milk chocolate I got from the nose is still there. A really amazing beer.

M= Well done. Not nearly as flat as I expected.

O= From a brewery that I was a little dissapointed with at first this beer is a home run. This is just plain tasty. It's not the big over the top type imperial stouts that make the BA Top 100 but it's a well done beer which is Fulton's niche I think. This baby is good. The best from them I've had so far I would say. I was lucky enough to try a mint chocolate chip version of this at one point and it was mind blowing so I had high expectations. This meets those expectations. This actually may be one of my new favorite beers. (1,284 characters)

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

Serving glass: Poured from bottle into Snifter.

Appearance: Pitch black with moderate tan head and light lacing rings.

Smell: Dark chocolate, molasses, dark fruits, and a touch of coffee. Expected RIS aroma, but quite decadent.

Taste: Strong roasted backbone that does not have the burnt taste that some fresh Imperial Stouts do. Bittersweet chocolate, figs, plum, molasses and light coffee are nicely playing together. Finish has some light roasted bitterness, as well as a touch of citrus. Perfect balance.

Feel: Extremely smooth, creamy and velvety. Full bodied, with the carbonation in check. Slightly warming.

Overall: Wow, I did not know the Fulton crew had it in them, although I have admittedly only had Sweet Child O Vine and The Lonely Blonde. This is one of the better traditional Russian Imperial Stouts I have had, and it deserves more hype. Of course, I really don't want it to reach Darkness levels of hype, as it is nice to just stroll into a store and pick it up. (985 characters)

Poured from 750 mL bottle into snifter.
A: Pours an opaque black (no light comes through with backlighting) with 1/2 inch dark mocha head that quickly recedes. (4.5)
S: Dark roasted caramel malt, chocolate malt, fig and other dark dried fruit, and a whiff of grassy hops. (4)
T: Dark bitter chocolate, dark roasted caramel malt, spicy rye, toasted grains, and grassy hops. Excellent balance and solid complexity. Dark dried fruit emerges with warming. (4.5)
M: Medium-heavy feel and full-bodied. Starts bittersweet and fairly smooth, then shifts and finishes dry and bitter. Slightly sticky sweet feel. (4)
D: Not as in-your-face as a lot of RISs out there...which in my book is a good thing. The ABV is a bit restrained 9.5% which avoids the overpowering boozy blast that can occur. A very solid brew...definitely recommended. (4.5)

1/16/14:
A: Poured on-tap into tulip. Pours an opaque black with a thin dark mocha head that quickly recedes.
S: Amazing mix of smooth dark chocolate, bourbon, charred wood, and toasted grains. Hint of dark caramel malt and grassy hops.
T: Dark bitter chocolate, rye whiskey, charred wood, spicy hops, and a hint of vanilla. Dark dried fruit emerges with warming.
M: Medium-heavy feel. Smooth with a bit of creamy and bitter aspects. Dry and moderately bitter finish. Sticky sweet feel.
D: Excellent drinkability especially for style. The ABV of 9.5% hits the sweet spot. Good complexity and excellent balance. Highly recommended...seek it out! (1,479 characters)

Very dark brown color with a dense, one finger brown head that had excellant retention. The head settles to a very thick cap. Heavy lacing is left down the glass.

Dark malt aroma. Not heavily roasted but more of a chocolate malt. Hints of cherries and grass.

Straight forward Russian Imperial Stout. Does not go into extreme regions like the big players that BAs love. Not hoppy, nor sweet. Just right down the middle. Chocolate notes with some fruity esters. A little grass and earth from the hops. Alcohol plays a role in the finish with some warmth and flavor.

Solid body with some superb carbonation. It is just hurt by the alcohol in the end that hurts the finish.

May not be a stout to seek out, but I am glad I had a chance to drink a bottle. I would say it is an approachable RIS. (792 characters)

I'm not a huge fan of Fulton, but after a good amount of promising reviews, I figured I should check this one out.

Looks very much like Speedway I think... deep coffee brown to black body and a finger of steady latte colored head that laces well with a tease of legs.

Real straight-forward... chocolate malts, roasty dessert notes, some mild brown sugar, a touch of alcohol heat comes after a big snort. Pretty smooth I'd say.

Loads of roasted malts... some oaky vanilla, mild milk chocolate, a bit of smoke... again, pretty smooth... safe.

A "worthy adversary" for... I don't know, maybe Stone IRS? (603 characters)

I have had a case of this stuff for over a week because I have a hook up with Fulton, surprised I waited this long to try it. My bottles are 'low fill' but i got them for free! You could say i'm a bit biased, I love this brewery.

A: Poured from a 750ml bottle into a Snifter. It is pitch black with a small half inch head. It leaves very light bits of lacing.

S: Dark chocolate, roasted malts, coffee.

T: Lots of rich dark chocolates and roasted caramel malts. A hint of coffee and vanilla.

M: Rich yet medium mouthfeel. This stuff is super creamy. Almost like drinking dark chocolate milk, delicious.

O: I have had just about all of Fulton's offerings and this is by far my favorite. I'm excited to see how this tastes next winter. Not quite on the same level as Darkness but it hangs with some of the better stouts out there. Go for it! (843 characters)

Pitch black. Poured from a growler not to much head at all. Will be interested to compare to the forthcomming bottled version in a couple weeks.

Smell is faint Sweet chocolate, maybe some roasted grain.

Taste milky chocolate, licorice some bitter hops. Finishes with a fudgy quality and a slight alcohol burn.

Extemely smooth mouthfeel. Silky coating quality.

Overall this is a fine offering from Fulton. (409 characters)

A - very dark brown hue, thin line of head.

S - mild coffee notes, chocolate and roast on the nose.

T - Coffee, chocoloate, very slight bourbon taste and strong roasty taste. Very smooth.

M - well carbonated with a very mild alcohol burn, again very smooth.

O - overall this is Fulton's best offering up to this point in my opinion. A very tasty imperial stout. Would highly recommend it. (395 characters)

Finally had a chance to check this out on tap at the Fulton taproom before a Friday night Twins game. Been hearing about it for so long & it always eluded me. No longer. 95 degrees? Big black stout? Yes, thank you.

Pour is into a 10-12 ounce chalice & it purty as can be, dark & foamy. The nose runs to sweet malt & rough coffee, & there might be a sprig or two of chocolate mixed in, as well.

Worthy Adversary is indeed worthy of consideration. Even cold, the coffee in this one is titanic, slipping the bounds between roast & coffee & going straight to the bean. Chocolate fills in the void behind, & does a nice dance with the sweet malt. The combo leads to a smooth, silky mouthfeel behind the initial roughness that's just lovely.

This one lived up to the bookings - what a nice brew. I'd like to sit down with this one again when I wasn't inside a broiler getting cooked; it might be even better then. Very good stout. (930 characters)
