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.

This pours an incredibly dark and thick black with a dark brown head. Aroma is roasted malt, chocolate, coffee. Such a thick creamy, chewy mouthfeel. Flavor is sweet malt, chocolate, and coffee. Finish is bittersweet chocolate. Delicious.

Itís odd actually pouring beer from a can! Iím used to slamming PBR and never seeing what comes out of the mouth so seeing this thick sludge flowing was an odd experience. Poured the black liquid vigorously into a Duvel Tulip (thick enough that it didnít splash at all!) creating a deep brown thick, creamy head. Black body that light has no chance getting through. Awesome aromas of chocolate, coffee and tobacco. Flavor is wonderful! I had no idea this was almost 100 IBU because there was SO much malt. Incredible! Mouth feel was thick like cough syrup and hid the alcohol surprisingly well. A damn good beer that I wish I had while it was -20 degrees outside. Hopefully it cellars until next winter.

On tap at Collins. Dark black with creamy, brown head. Big roast in flavor and aroma. Smooth chocolate and a wonderfully hoppy finish. A little boozy, but not too much. A little licorice. Sticks to the back of your throat. Yum. Welcome to Seattle.

An amazing beer. I canít believe something this thick with full flavor came out of a can. A full array of flavors like coffee, chocolate, milk, toffee, and a hint of alcohol. It is similar to Expedition, but a lot more drinkable. The alcohol is not apparent in the mix and doesnít overwhelm the good flavors. It is oily on the palate and has a clinging aftertaste. Would definitely have this again.

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.
