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.

Fingers crossed this makes it out west. Stellar brew. As other notes state, coco, coffee, roasted malt with very slight sweet and vanilla. Where this wins for me is the texture and thickness though refreshing and never feeling that heavy.

can thanks to RCL. poured a used motor oil black with a chocolate brown head leaving some lacing. aroma was chocolate, dark roast grains, and alcohol. flavor was great with chocolate, some good bitter, and a nice blend of alcohol. had an oily finish with very low carbonation. GREAT STUFF!!

Surprisingly good for a canned beer. A good stout even though not my favorite type of beer. You can’t taste the ten percent alcohol.

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.

Love this beer. Very thick. Hints of chocolate. Think and malty. Kind of reminds me of coffee.

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.
