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.

Black in colour with a thin and quickly dissipating brown coloured head, very light patchy lacing. The aroma is very sweet, dark chocolate, liquorice, some espresso and alcohol. The flavour is of chocolate cake, cream, a bit syrupy, light alcohol and a small roast. Sweet mouthfeel, medium body, medium carbonation. Finishes burnt with some chocolate and alcohol, lingering.

This is pretty straight forward. Thought that this was lacking considering how I’ve liked the other Oskar Blues beers that I have had.

355ml can obtained in a trade with Beerlando, thanks Bryan.

NomDeBeer (414) - Maryland, USA - AUG 20, 2008
Pours black with a beautiful brown head that diminishes completely. Aroma of alcohol, chocolate, and dark fruit. Thick, heavy mouth feel that saturates the palate. Flavor of chocolate, bitter coffee, and vanilla. Alcohol is slightly noticable in the taste, but overall, it’s well-hidden. Long, bitter finish of roasted malts, coffee, and hops.

Ordered from Liquor Max in Co. Thanks Nick. Tasted on 4/12/2008

I definitely wowed some friends pouring this amazing beer from a can. Pours motor oil black with a thick, mocha colored head. Smells of dark chocolate, coffee, and roasted malts. Taste is very similar with a majority coming from the chocolate and roasted malt taste and then a hint of coffee. The mouthfeel is very thick and expected of an RIS. The alcohol is hidden very well in the smell and taste for a 10%ABV beer thus it is pretty drinkable but I can’t see having more than a couple in a session.

UPDATED: MAY 27, 2010 Can from ericandersnavy. Pours black, no light comming through, with a chocolate head....Very strong aroma of chocolate and coffee. Flavor is very nice, strong dark roast and chocolate with a bitter of a good IIPA. Palate is heavy, full body with low carbonation. Over all, a very tasty beer....

Alright, so any beer that comes in a ALUMINUM CAN isn’t exactly on my "to-taste" list... so when this arrived from a friend I wasn’t the biggest fan. But it’s good stuff! GREAT roasted flavors with lots of creamy vanilla and chocolate. EXTREMELY thick (I would love to know what it’s FG is, gotta be huge) and pours tremendously dark with a dark tan head that is rich with aroma and flavor. All I know is that when I see this in the stores, can or bottle, I’m buying it!

AmEricanbrew (6030) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - AUG 16, 2008
Pitch black with a brown head. Mild blackened malt aroma with some grassy hops. Full body with light carbonation. Big flavors of dry black malts and tobacco at first, then a nicely bitter, dryish grassy hop and alcohol twang to finish. Reminds me of Gonzo porter.

Can. Pours near black with a brown head. Roasted aroma, a touch of sweetness and coffee. Smooth mouthfeel. Roasted flavor with coffee, raisin, and a grassy hop finish. Very nice.
