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.

Enniskillen (2029) - Salinas, California, USA - MAR 16, 2008
Really does resemble used motor oil. Very thick black with a thin tan head. Aroma is coffee, roasted malts, light smoke, dark chocolate, and chicory. Taste is extremely roasty, probably the strongest roastiness, and burntness I have ever had... It’s just too much on the roasty side which covers everything else up.

Pours black into a snifter. Fluffy mocha-colored head with good retention leaves spot lacing as it slowly recedes. Chocolate and espresso aromas. Smooth and creamy dark chocolate and espresso from front-to-back. Lasting cocoa finish.

Black color, dark brown head. Pours like motoroil. Salty, roasted scent. Salty, bitter, roasted taste. Coffee and roasted aftertaste. Smooth mouthfeel, high bitterness. Rather heavy and not, for me, high drinkability. I wouldn’t finish a whole can. Still nice as a sample.

badbeer (434) - Iowa, USA - MAR 14, 2008
Black color with a brown head that retains well and has excellent lacing. Smell has plenty of molasses and hops. Quite roasty in the nose as well. Taste starts out burnt and a little ashy, some molasses comes through, and then a hoppy, roasty finish. Light carbonation and medium body. Good beer, I’d like to see how this one ages. I could see myself getting more of this.

millysdaddy (67) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - MAR 14, 2008
12 oz. can. Pours a very thick black with a very small, tan head. It seemed a bit undercarbonated? Dark, malty aroma - coffee, chocolate, and dried fruits. Strong roasted malt flavors but not too much of a burnt flavor. Has a nice, bitter, dry finish.

kramer (4866) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 14, 2008
12 oz can, via CaptainCougar. 10-W50 indeed, this pours a completely pitch black inky body with a small foamy dark brown head that faded to a thin ring and a partial wispy covering. The nose is huge roasty chocolaty goodness. Some green, almost wintergreen, like hops. Coffee, light alcohol, and fudgy notes. The flavor is big, heavy, slightly burnt roastiness, with a little more astringency than I’d prefer, but it’s tolerable. Moderate alcohol flavor showing through, but no burn at all. Mouthfeel is full and thick with a nice slick oily texture. It coats the cheeks so well that the finish lasts forever. Nice soft minimal carbonation. Overall, this was OK, but I think the astringency and overly roasted malt detracted a bit.

Can: Maybe the darkest beer I have ever seen. Aroma is roasted malt, good lacing and small dark mocha head. Taste is roasted malt, wood, coffee, and oates. Good blend between all the flavors. It even has some bitterness to it at the end. Super thick! Like syrup. Over all, very well done...
