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.

lucky enough to have it on tap at beachwood bbq in seal beach, california. being a big stout lover, i was anxious to give this one a whirl. a beautiful, thick almost black liquid with a slight caramelized head. aroma was wonderful with a lot going on. alcohol was present but not overwhelming (like avery’s mephistopholes). beautiful notes of coffee and chocolate. one of the best imperial stouts i’ve had....

Can courtesy of BMan1113VR.. Pours slowly like thick motor oil that forms a black body with a reddish dark brown head. Nose is like my old humidor. Cedar and tobacco with some booze. Some of my favorite scents. Even when you swirl the body makes a sticky brown residue that creeps down the glass. Mouthfeel is medium to heavy and seems to thicken up as it warms. Tastes like dark chocolate, java, and malted milk. Pretty dang good.

Bottle from Liquor max. An inky, thick pour, with a small, dark brown head. Completely black body. Alcohol legs, and some odd, spotty, complete lacing. Aroma is a bit weak, with alcohol, malt, light smoke and cedar and a bit roasty. Taste is malty, and roasty, a bit of rochefort, caramel and coffee. I find it a bit thin like all Oskar Blues beers. There is also a choclate milkshake/malt taste when it warms aswell, alcohol evident. Light carbonation.

355 ml can at Ørsted Ølbar, Copenhagen. Black color, lovely brown head. Aroma is roasted malt, coffee, chocolate - all the good stuff! The flavor is chocolate and coffee, but also hops and burned malt. Fantastic mouthfeel. Balanced and complex.

I have had this beer exactly one time before which was on tap at the brewpub. This is straight from the new can which is mostly black and silver, Raiders colors, not fucking cool…. The beer really looks like oil pouring from the can. The head was dark brown and the beer was obviously pitch black. The smell is excellent, roasty dark chocolates maybe a coffee bean as well and powdered cocoa. The taste is very nice, oaty for some reason, burnt, the smell is the best part. This stuff is definitely strong but i can not get over how good it smells. Buy this when you see it. Serving type: can Reviewed on: 10-11-2007 15:41:43

Pours an extremely dark black from 12 oz can, forming dark brown head of foam. Aroma dark chocolates, deep roasted malts, hops and raw expresso beans. Flavour of much of the same, ABV well hidden in sweetness and bitter balance, the beer is very smooth, very quaffable. Would be drank in big quantities on tap, in the presence of of good friends and family. Superb beer, simply superb beer! Thanks DrBayern (Yo Matt!), for the complimentary can of beer!

The can pours impenetrable dark chocolate color with about an inch of slightly orange hued, tan froth; settling after about a minute. Extremely thick, it poured pretty much straight down, no arch. Smells of a bit of alcohol, and sort of like someone threw cocoa beans on a camp fire. It tastes like someone melted a bar of bittersweet chocolate, and that’s delicious by me. Served cold, dangerously drinkable. As it warms, I feel like the carb can’t quite hold it up, but don’t be afraid. I think the sweet and bitter are very well balanced considering the "size" of this brew.
