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.

Can thanks to CaptainCougar. Pitch black pour with nice sized frothy thick brown head. Nose of roasted coffee, malt and a touch of bittersweet chocolate. Flavor is slightly toasted hints of nuts, big with chocolate and a nice espresso finish. Texture is perfect with a nice creamy finish that has a nice touch of hops.

Can (12oz). Shared with garthicus, courtesy of blankboy. Pours like motor oil, thick, impenetrable black with a creamy dark brown head (5-). Aroma - burnt treacle, dry wheat, nut oil, hessian, mild peat. Taste - incredibly bitter, thick burnt malt body, long medium alcohol-bitter finish. Thick, slick, astringent and incredibly bitter. Lovely - thanks, Paul!

Long burning smokey finish. Mmm mmmm mmm Thanks Harry!

PorterPounder (5340) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - APR 22, 2008
Tallahassee, Fl. - Liquor Loft, 12 oz can. Pours a jet black motor oil like, with a dark purple tint - dark mocha colored head, medium thickness, faint traces of lace. Aroma of dark chocolate, cold bitter day old coffee. Flavor brings out some dark espresso, bakerís chocolate, fresh potting soil - excellent cold weather sipping brew. Smooth, creamy mouthfeel,almost like a milkshake. Have not had a bad one yet from the Oskar Blues folks.

Though I am stoked that these guys are comign to Texas and apprecaite what they are doing in regards to canning, I just think it is really counter productive to can an impy stout. That being said, I thought this one was just sorta pedestrian. 4-19-08, thanks to mar.

sinkr (323) - Odenton, Maryland, USA - APR 21, 2008
Can->snifter: Pours a large, rocky, dark brown head that exhibits good lacing on top of a muddy, black body. The aroma is of molasses, caramel, and grain with the hops being floral and the yeast being like horse blanket. The body is full, the texture is thick, and the finish is astringent. The taste is moderately sweet and lightly acidic and bitter, finishing like sour milk. An excellent thick beer; I found it to be great from a snifter, but as well from a can, especially if you wanna feel like youíre slumming it.

jefcon (1354) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - APR 20, 2008
True to itís billing, this imperial stout from a can pours like motor oil. Itís thick and viscous. Unusually alarming aromas of sweet fruit, figs, cherries and cinnamon buns. Palate is milkshake-thick, with a hot, medium-length finish. Flavors of coffee, roast, and bitter wood.

poured black and looked as think as motor oil coming from the can. The head builds very nicely and is dark brown, making the beer look reminicent of chocolate mouse. aroma was nice, roasted, big, with some chocolate and coffee. Flavor was much of the same, big chocholate flavors, toffee, coffee, nuts, and a good bitterness coming through. mouthfeel was thick and delicious with soft carbonation. great imperial stout
