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.

Canned. Finally got my hands on this! Jet black pour. Thick mocha colored head. Nose is very hoppy with dark, roasted malts, licorice hints, bittersweet, dark chocolate, and coffee. Taste is sweet malts, roasted malts, chocolate, oily coffee, hops, light licorice and maybe chocolate candy, as it started to get soft of sweet even with the hops. Body is thick and chewy with dense carbonation and some oily slickness. Ends with more roasted malts, chocolate milk, candy, hops, licorice, oily coffee and sweet maltiness. Yummy!

2005-05-24. Pitch black body with a small brown head leaves a brown film on the glass. (4+) Modest cocoa and roast in the aroma, under layer of malt. Roast bitterness and modest coffee notes throughout the flavour. Light hoppy bitterness as well, malty base essentially serves as a base for the roasty overtones rather than offering much nuance of its own. Rich finish of mocha-roast begins with some hops. (8+) Smooth medium to full bodied palate. I am left a bit torn; It was really quite nice, but whether it was just the excitement of getting my first cross-border growler fill or something else I had hoped for even more greatness so I was mildly disappointed even with such a nice stout. Damn expectations! Growler from Consumerís Beverages, Buffalo

Dark black with moderate, dark brown head. Malty aroma of roasted powdered chocolate and faint grapefruit hops. Some licorice and then hop bitterness cuts through the malty taste; ending in a bitter finish. Body is full and mellow with not much carbonation. Slightest touch of oil on the palate.

KingpinIPA (841) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 25, 2008
Dark color. Looks like I am pouring oil out of a can. Smell of malt, chocolate, hops, pine, caramel, coffee, dark fruit, alcohol, smoke, cake batter and candy milk chocolate. Taste the same but more robust flavor. Wonderful roasted coffee and chocolate.

AllAboutStout (605) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 25, 2008
Pours about as dark brown/black as you can get. Very rocky, brown head forms on top. Smell is roasted malt and milk duds. Taste is huge! Very roasted malts, and I mean roasted. Charred might even be a better term. Full, creamy and very velvety on the mouthfeel. This has a close feel as a weak milkshake as you can get. This would be very complimentary to a good dark dessert. Canít get over the amount of roast, chocolate and coffee that is here. Over the top, but good beer.

restless7 (104) - Lenexa, Kansas, USA - MAY 24, 2008
CAN: Can opens with no carbonation sound at all jet black with red, no dark tan head. various lacing. medium. flavor is thick coffee and even thicker chocolate and roasted barley. Nice finish. By itself itís amazing. Compared to other higher rated stouts (expedition) itís noticably missing a little something, but still very excellent.

Amazing to look at as it pours from the can. Straight motor oil with a chocolate head. Bitter coffee and sweet chocolate in the aroma and flavor. I can see where the Whoppers comparison comes in. Ultra creamy mouthfeel. Large head but soft carbonation. Fantastic beer.
