This titanic, immensely viscous stout is loaded with inimitable flavors of chocolate-covered caramel and coffee and hide a hefty 98 IBUs underneath the smooth blanket of malt. Ten FIDY (10.5% ABV) is made with enormous amounts of two-row malt, chocolate malt, roasted barley, flaked oats and hops. Ten FIDY is the ultimate celebration of dark malts and boundary-stretching beer.

Pours black with a thick tan head. A chocolate and malty taste and aroma. One of the best beers I’ve had.

Poured from a 12 oz. Can at home. This beer is Awesome. I was really surprised by this beer out of a can. This has changed my thoughts about canned beers. This is a remarkable stout that pours dark black with a tan head. Smells of chocolate and malt. Taste is the same! First is the bitterness of the chocolate and a little coffee in there. The after-taste is just a really smooth, good taste on the back of your tongue. Overall, this beer is is just a solid stout that I would highly recommend.

Poured from a can into a snifter. Appears black with a light brown/tan head. Higher carbonation than expected. Aroma is sweet. Close to chocolate... Slight roasting/coffee. Repeated breathes give a light bourbon component. A nice touch. Taste is oak, coffee, and roast with sweet in there somewhere. Possibly chocolate. Some bitterness but this moves into the palate. Mouthfeel/palate is described as perfect! Bitterness balances sweet in an incredible way. Never never never would say this is 98 IBUs. The carbonation contributes to the after burn however it’s comparable to a highly carbonated beer. So I’m saying well done... From a guy who does not like over hopped beer. Overall one of the best stouts I’ve ever had. Without barrel aging or additional components! Welcome to Minnesota Oskar Blues!

WOW. This is a remarkable stout. Completely opaque with a tan head. Very strong chocolate and roasted malt almost makes the alcohol content unnoticeable. Also, I love the can.

Bought in four pack cans. Poured into glass. Has a very dark thick appearance and the aroma is nice and Carmel sweet smelling.. The taste is very smooth at first. Slight hoppiness during swallowing. But it mellows out quickly for a smooth dark aftertaste. Caramel, coffee, smoke comes to mind.. Imperial stouts are my favorite so I gave this one a high ranking for my preference.

355ml can. Pitch blach with a small tan head. Roasted malt, coffee, dark chocolate, liquorice. Sweet and oily/creamy mouthfeel. Finishes off with a hint of bitterness and alcohol.

Pours like warm use motor oil, pitch black with a thin tan head. Aromas of chocolate coated caramel biscuits, raisins and licorice. Flavour is no let down, rich and thick, salted caramel and choc-chip cookies. Good burnt malts as mellowed by a citrusy bite. The finish is smooth, citric and malty, such smooth malt profile for such a dark beer. Alcohol is very well blended. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
