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.

UPDATED: MAY 28, 2008 Thanks to El Gordo for this 12-oz. can--Poured a deep dark opaque body with a small wispy white head. Molasses, chocolate, and cream flavors. Very hoppy and fruity with well-masked alcohol. A truly delicious dessert brew. Yum!

Is this a can of oil? Pitch black with an inch of thick very brown head. Aroma is full of chocolate, roasted malts, and espresso; very sweet. Very creamy body. A lot of dark chocolate flavor in the beginning with a very full, lightly roasted malty body that fades into a really strong and lasting coffee finish. Finish also carries a little dry alcohol and bitterness.

Bottle at Magic_dave6’s disco dance tasting. Dark ruby, no head. Nose is slightly sweet, burnt malts, some espresso. Dark chocolate. Mouth is slightly alcoholic, burnt, roasted maltiness, lasting smoky burned malt aftertaste. Nice.

Madsnp (933) - DENMARK - MAR 31, 2008
Can. Pitch black with a creamy cappuccino-brown head. Aroma is heavy roasted coffee-like, with notes of chocolate and vanilla. Flavour is lovely burned supported by some more bitterness from the hops. The light carbonating makes the mouth-feeling thick, almost like dairy cream. This is greatness in a can!

FoolishMortal (990) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 30, 2008
12oz can. OPaque oily red-brown color with a small dark brown head. Some roastiness and heavy citric metallic hop aromatics. Chocolate and some coffee flavors. Ruddy citric hop flavors move in and persist. Some roastiness manifests, lingering in the finish with complementary hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is a medium heavy, unctuous. Somewhat drying.

Blind tasted and a full one out of the can. Pours jet black with a light brown head. Roasty, mocha nose with earthy hops - not overpowering but nice. Dark roasty bittersweet chocolate, coffee, medium caramel sweetness, pleasant roasty and hoppy bitterness. Lasting pleasant burnt finish. Medium bodied and drinkable, but full enough to swirl around your mouth and coat the tongue. Moderate carbonation. Very good!

Wonderful stuff. The aroma is mostly roast malts like a bar-b-que. Flavor is malt sweetness with a hop finish.
