4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Part of a special "barrel" week at The Beer Junction. $5.35 for a 4oz pour, listed as 10.8% ABV. Wow, did I love this beer! Opaque, black color with a dark, tan head. Aroma was roasty (borderline burnt smell), picked up on the alcohol and bourbon. Flavor was potent but balanced. It was thick, smooth and left a trail of very good lace. Iím actually struggling to describe it further, I think it left me semi-speechless. This was awesome and totally worth the price for a special treat!

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Tasted at Aces and Ales in Las Vegas. Pours a jet black, thick used motor oil with a luscious mocha head. Aroma is strong with caramel, vanilla, dark chocolate, cocoa nibs, prunes, and roasted nuts. The taste is just as good with the deep chocolate notes first and then the vanilla, caramel, toffee, and roasted goodness. Serious thick mouth and an almost syrup like consistency. Slight booze on the finish, but very well balanced with flavors overall.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tasted on 9/27/14 from a crowler, big thanks to Churnandburn. Pours almost completely black with an average brown head that slowly recedes to an average collar. The nose is nice nutty maple and toffee bourbon with a ton of dark roasted coffee, and some dark chocolate. The flavor is really nicely balanced and the same with some milk chocolate brownie added. The body is very full with just above average carbonation and a long nicely roasted, ton of nutty bourbon finish.

Growler thanks to Brian. Pours a dark brown with no head. The aroma is strong bourbon, oak, wood, and dark fruits. Medium mouthfeel with strong booze, dark chocolate, light bitterness, really enjoyed this one.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap at Flying Saucer Sugar Land a couple days ago during an Oskar Blues Tap Takeover. Have been wanting to try this for quite some time. Was not disappointed! This has the same nose and taste as the regular Ten Fidy - chocolate, coffee and chocolate - while adding whiskey and wood. Fortunately, the whiskey adds to the complexity of this brew without overwhelming the base beer. A hi-quality brew here. Mouthfeel was thick and coating. Should have ordered a second glass as it was blown a little later that evening.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap, pours black with a brown hue with a thick tan head that leaves great lacing. Smells of oak bourbon, vanilla, chocolate, roasted malt and caramel. Tastes of the same things in the smell. Mouthfeel is thick, silky and creamy with good carbonation. The original Ten Fidy is great on itís own, ageing it in a whiskey barrel makes it even better. Probably one of the best barrel aged stouts Iíve had. Right up there with Bourbon County and The Abyss. Too bad itís only available on draft. I would love to see what some more age would do to it.

Crowler. Pitch black pour with small mocha head. Nose mainly of roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, and a little booze. Taste follows the nose with more coffee. Barrel is subtle but it is present. Good but doesnít knock your socks off.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at sb. Pours jet black with a dense and creamy dark tan head. Big sweet chocolate and apricot nose. Very sugary. Sticky thick goopy body. Chocolate and apricot mid palate. Heavy and sweet but very nice. Long finish.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draught > Common Table. Pretty f'ing good. Not too boozy. You can actually taste some of the beer flavors and not just whiskey. Pretty much like a roasty vanilla bean slightly boozy beer that is an easy drinker at almost 11%.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Tap at Freshcraft. Black with great thin head. Roasted malt, choco and bourbon aroma. Smooth like velvet. Prefect balance and the bourbon last long into finish. I believe Iím aroused.
