This rare stout comes from a second running of the infamous Ten Fidy. Then Lactose sugar is added to make it a delicious lower ABV milk stout.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JAN 27, 2013
On tap at Tyler’s, Apex. Chilly afternoon post-game and a beer like this seemed just the ticket. Handsome enough look to the beer, but it wasn’t quite the thick and creamy brew I’d hoped for. Despite the thinnish body, it was fairly flavorful if a bit light on the roasts for the style (more rich and milk chocolatey). Decent.

Draft at the source, RBWG. Opaque black color, thick tan head with good retention and lacing. Aroma of burnt cocoa, toast. Taste has dark chocolate, licorice, light body. Tasty.

Sample @ Oskar Blues in Asheville. Dark brown pour with a small head. Plenty of chocolate and coffee creamer. Some butterscotch candied. Nice ashy roast malt character to balance out the chocolate. A touch of acid. Creamy supple body. Well-rounded stuff. Nice.

solidfunk (4722) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - APR 10, 2014
Very rich and charactered milk stout. Pours black with great head and lacing. Nice roasty aroma with some light cream that adds some creamy sense to the already thick texture.Finishes bitter with a little sweetness. Tap at Iron Horse.

phaleslu (7041) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 17, 2014
Draft at Oskar Blues-Brevard. Pours an opaque coffee brown with a small creamy beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate, dry grains, dust, nuts, and a bit of lactose. The flavor is the same, but roastier. Light-bodied, with a dry mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Nice nitro milk stout.

Black pour with tan head and lace. Aroma is coffee and roasted malt. Coffee forward on the flavor with roastiness. A medium malt/hop bitter finish. Light medium body and a tad watery. pretty nice

TURDFERGUSON (4002) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - FEB 17, 2014
Tap at OB Brevard. Pours muddy dark brown with a succinct nitro tan head. Nose is light ash and smoke, some dusty cocoa, acrid roast. Flavor is similar, fairly muted by the nitro. Goddamn i hate nitro, ruins every mightbegoodotherwise beer.

Leighton (12650) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 16, 2014
Draft at the NC brewery taproom during RBWG 2014. Pours black with a thick, tan cream head. OK beer. Some chocolate notes, candied burnt sugars, light caramel. Light to medium bodied with soft carbonation. Moderate sweetness to finish with roasted malts and earthy bitterness. Meh, so so.

[ Tap ][ Oskar Blues Brevard ][ 4oz ][ Taster ][ Free ][ 2/7/14 ]
>> Thanks Maxx for the share. Apparently this is the second runnings of Ten FIDY. Excellent nitro foam pour, pretty black color, great sheets of lacing. Nose is smoke, savory meat. Taste is savory as well, fairly roasty. Palate is thin, tart, but still not too watery. I kind of like this one.
