COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

So solid, one of my favorite stouts by far! Worst part is how much I paid for it...so smooth, perfect body, nice and creamy. Flavor profile is deep but not extreme, go get some!

Draft at 3floyds brewpub. Pours a pitch motor oil black with a tanned brown head. Nose has roasted coffee, dark chocolate, molasses and burn malts. Very coffee driven. Taste is all about roasted espresso and molasses. Smooth chocolate coats the palate. Dry coffee bitterness to finish. Fantastic beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

If you like dark this one is for you. A very rich tasting beer with even favors that are layered to make a complex flavor experience.

355ml can. A thick black pour with a chocolate brown cap. Messy lacing. Rich chocolate nose, roast, caramel, coffee and a hint of licorice. Taste has big roasted malts that bring out black coffee beans, and dark chocolate, some caramel. Finishes with decent bitterness, lots of dark coffee and roast notes. Some alcohol at the end, long aftertaste. Full mouthfeel. Overall a very solid imperial stout.

Dark black and thick. Complex malt profile with coffee, chocolate, brown sugar. Nicely balanced sweetness and slight lingering hop bitterness. Excellent go-to stout.

Pour to snifter. Black with brown head. Complex palate: Light and heavy simultaneously, smooth for high ABV. Complex flavor: chocolate, roasted malt, coffee, black molasses, and more. Just a damn good beer.

exeter (313) - calgary, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 18, 2014
This beer poured thick and dark. A good size dark brown head, that disappeared and left a little lacing. Tastes of dark blend coffee, molasses,chocolate and sweet malt with a strong alcohol presence dominate. Excellent

susanamayer (211) - Ohio, USA - OCT 15, 2014
The aroma started light (the beer was on the cold side) with notes of creamy chocolate and roasted malt with light coffee notes and a touch of ash in the background. As the beer warmed the chocolate got more of a mild chocolate smell to it and even a little fruitiness. The flavor was huge like a nice smack in the mouth. Big roasted malt and dark bitter chocolate.

Cirrhosis (1215) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 14, 2014
Oily black with thick brown film floating on top. Drool inducing aroma, heavy chocolate, burnt sugar, smokey ash. Taste is wicked, smokey burnt sugar, chocolate, sweetness, FLAVOUR!!!!!!! There is so much going on here!!! Possible strawberry, molasses, and even more STUFF and THANGS!! Roasted every thing, and so very thick and chewy. Coffee flirts in the flavour but never comes to the front. Aftertaste lingers forever. Beer has no faults and is way to drinkable for 10.5%.

The aroma started light (the beer was on the cold side) with notes of creamy chocolate and roasted malt with light coffee notes and a touch of ash in the background. As the beer warmed the chocolate got more of a mild chocolate smell to it and even a little fruitiness. The flavor was huge like a nice smack in the mouth. Big roasted malt and dark bitter chocolate. Once again as the beer warmed it turned to more of a milk chocolate.
