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.

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.

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.

Huhzubendah (2522) - Washington DC, USA - APR 5, 2013
Shared by Bill. Thanks man! Served alongside standard TenFidy. The appearance is identical to the regular version. Vey dark brown with a beige head. The aroma is also remarkably similar, with the addition of subtle whiskey. Delicate barrel notes with a slight tannic bite in the finish. On the whole, remarkably smooth. A top notch barrel aged stout.

On tap at Falling Rock. Pours dark with hints of oak, brown sugar, molasses, and very hot. Smooth with large whiffs of vanilla, cocoa, and licorice. This is quite delicious and something to seek out.

Sampled at FoBAB ’12. Pours black with a medium sized tan head. The aroma and flavor was for the most part similar to the regular version of Ten Fidy; roasted malts, dark chocolate, espresso but add a nice touch of the barrel. Oak and just a hint of whiskey that adds a hint of cherry are enough to enhance the base just a bit.

Sample FOBAB ’12 - Wild Turkey Barrel Aged variety - poured from unmarked tall boy, so this drink means business! Black with speckling of a head. Aroma is chocolate, hint of vanilla, and bourbon - sort of mild, and very inviting. Flavor is Ten Fidy, but with a smooth, mild bourbon presence, maybe a hint more vanilla (need side by side!) and some wood - good stuff! Palate mimics the flavor - smooth and rich, and this one had some serious body to it. Solid!

Blank tallboy Can at Fobab 10. This was aged in Wild Turkey barrels. Pours black with a dark brown head. The nose is Ten Fidy all the way, with a big hit of vanilla and bourbon. This beer can definitely support the barrel. Lots of chocolate, coconut and rich malt in the nose. On tasting, the sweetness is there, but so is the richness. Balanced bitterness, tons of wood character, too. One of the better BA imperial stouts I’ve had in quite a while.

Pours a still, thick, opaque black with a rim of caramel colored head. The surface of the beer is completely still. The aroma is more subtle than I would have thought. There is chocolate and toffee with some wood. On the palate, this beer is incredibly rich... luscious. The bourbon is fairly understated but the wood comes out strong and balances a smoother rendition of the usual Ten Fidy. Awesome and worth seeking out. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

5 oz Draft at UES Pony bar with Linh during the "mountain high" event. Pours deep blackish body with deep red tint when a touch of light hits it. Light brown lacing. Aroma is super sweet chocolate syrup, bourbon and molasses. Mouthfeel is slick with notes sweet bourbon, chocolate, molasses, light licorice, booze, and a touch of vanilla.
