COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ten FIDY’s huge-but-comforting flavors hide a hefty 10.0% and 98IBU. This version is aged in whiskey barrels from Stranahan’s Colorado Whiskey (Denver, CO) to create an even trippier extreme beer.

Prufrockstar (693) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 3, 2014
Draft at BA. Pours thick, black, completely opaque, with creamy mocha head that slowly dissipates to a thin layer of fine bubbles. Aroma: this has all the hallmarks of a big, beautiful barrel-aged stout. Vanilla is first in the door, accompanied by whiskey, chocolate, dark fruits. Smells like this is going to be sticky-sweet and delicious. And boozy. Taste: chocolate, roast, big alcohol presence. More roast bitterness initially than I expected, but gives way to a really nice blend. Everything a BA imp stout should be in taste as well it seems. Big sweetness tempered by big bitterness, with a somewhat dry but lasting finish. Bitterness borders on being astringent the longer I drink this, which is the only knock against it. Full body, thick, rich, velvet texture, average to high carbonation. Lots of warming alcohol in the end. Overall: this is exceptional. In a beer world full of barrel aged imperial stouts that are inherently likeable, even when they’re mediocre, this one does it all right and really stands out.

Draft at Brouwer’s, Seattle. Part of Big Wood 2013. Pours a dark opaque color, little to no tan head. Aroma massive, Bourbon, chocolate, caramel, cookie dough. Body full and rich, smoother than the regular version, with a well-balanced woody bite to the finish. Top class.

mcberko (5372) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 6, 2013
On tap at Brouwer’s Cafe for Big Wood 2013, pours black with a small tan / light brown head. Aroma brings out big whiskey notes, and a bit of vanilla - not much of the base beer detectable on the nose. Flavour does, however - bringing out notes of lush chocolate and whiskey. The barrels don’t overburden the base beer’s elegant qualities, but instead accentuates the flavours beautifully. Silky, soft palate. Amazing stuff.

trevor211 (1298) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 5, 2013
On tap at Brouwer’s Big Wood 2013. Black pour, with a huge nose. Seafoam candy, caramel, and vanilla. A little boozy, with dark toasted malts at the forefront. This thing is really, really big -- and quite tasty.
