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.

unique in that there is some bitter quality on the front/top of the tongue but sweetens a touch on the finish. very sweet and malty overall, but full flavored. A touch acidic on the backend, too. Overall, very sweet, almost a dessert beer. reminds a bit of Dogfish Headís world wide. Very drinkable world class beer.

Purchased a year ago from, "By The Bottle" in Vancouver, WA. But, acquired most recent can from, "hannont". Oskar Blues is showing up in the Portland, OR market; hopefully Ten Fidy is on the way! Colour... pours as black as 10W-50 thatís been in the crankcase of a San Juan Mts. Jeep for 50K miles! The head is thick, tan and frothy. Nose... cold, black coffee, cocoa mass, malt balls and hops. Palate... ohhhhhh... where to begin with this corpulent stout? Letís start with the immensely mouth coating "texture". Yes! Texture. I figure that this is technically a solid because itís so incredibly THICK! Flavours of darkly roasted Sumatra coffee, chocolate malts, bittersweet French chocolate, cocoa solids and plenty of hops to balance it all out. All the flavours echo brilliantly on the looooooong finish! One added note.... this stout is so well balanced, it doesnít seem anywhere near 10%ABV; but you better stay away from the heavy machinery, nonetheless!

IT IS PROBABLY THE BEST BEER I HAVE EVER HAD FROM A CAN. POURS ALMOST JET BLACK WITH A SLIGHTLY CREAMY HEAD. YOU CAN TASTE THE CHOCOLATE, MALT, AND ROASTED BARLEY. ONE OF THE WORLDS BEST IMPERIAL STOUTS.

gotta love this strong aggressive pour of a stout from a can, ads to the experience, unique touch, but very thick, very full, and good stuff. Lacks in subtlties, but that is ok.

Draft at Michaelís Bistro in Charlottesville. Had been looking for this one for a while. Nice RIS but Iím finding it really hard for one of these to differentiate itself. Still, tasty brew that I will try again if I see it.

On tap. Jet black with a creamy chocolate head. Aroma is caramel, chocolate, sweet berry maltiness, slightly citric, and annoyingly phenolic. Flavor was roast barley caramel and chocolate, berries and cream, and finished coffee and phenols. Palate was very smooth but the phenols were just a little cloying. The alcohol content made this just a little too annoying to call excellent, but its definitely good.

Probably the best Imperial Stout ever made. Pours like 10,000 mile old motor oil. Great choc coffee flavor. Excellent palate feel and completely an amazing beer.

UPDATED: MAR 6, 2009 On tap at Collins Pub. Pours viscous black with no head. Smells like coffee and roasted malts- not too big. Drinks smooth and very thick. Oats, roasted malts, coffee, and some chocolate in a long, slightly bitter finish.

Black in color with a large brown head. Aroma is of molasses, roasted malts, coffee, and dark chocolate. Taste is of the same. Rich and thick motor-oil-dense body.
