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.

can - This is bar far the deepest, blackest stout Iíve ever seen. Pours like motor oil from a í72 Chevelle. Very very fine, dark brown head. Huge roasted malt aroma. Flavor is predominantly roasted malt, but thereís a nice hop kick at the end to help cut through the roastiness. Some hints of chocolate. Kind of like a cross between Storm King and Brooklyn Black Chocolate Stout.

I REALLY want to like this beer more. The look is AWESOME, with a dark brown head, about 1/2 inch high, leaving a cap and lace all the way down. Darkest head I have ever seen on any beer. Pours thicker than any beer I have ever had before, much like a 30W oil, AFTER months in the engine. Aroma is great, EXTREMELY roasty, with burnt notes. There is some notes of higher alcohols in the nose, but they blend well with the roast. Flavor is where this beer falls apart. HUGE notes of fusel alcohols, and I am expecting a big headache from this. The higher alcohols form a hot, astringent character on the tongue, very slightly overwhelming. The roastiness and malt is great, but the fusels are too much. I recommend sharing this, as 12 oz seems way too much.

Aroma of roasted coffee, dark chocolate and some liquorice too, nearly black, small cappuccino head. Taste is a lovely roast coffee, liquorice, and a full on dark chocolate infusion. Full bodied, wonderfully bitter. Majestic! Thanks Radek Kliber!

Aroma is a blast of charred dark chocolate. Appears dark brown with little head. Flavor hits you right away with that dark chocolate, sliding into toasted brown bread, finishing with a sharp hop snap. Viscous on the palate--almost syrupy. Overall, an extreme beer from a brewery that likes to go to extremes.

Can. Pours a pitch black oil color, with a dark brown thick head. The aroma is roasted nuts with a noticeable chocolate and malts and surprisingly more hops than I expected. Flavor is chocolates with roasted malts, and again, a little bit more hops than I would have thought. Overall this is a great, quality beer - another win from Oskar Blues.

Tweety (377) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 6, 2008
UPDATED: APR 21, 2008 Can. Dark beer, dark head, thick stuff. The most prominent flavor in the aroma and the taste is a roasted nuttiness, with some chocolate and coffee. Very smooth, and thick on the tongue, but still with a lot of kick flavor-wise.

GriffinAvenue (396) - Winchester, Massachusetts, USA - APR 5, 2008
Can. Motor-oil molasses opaquge black pour. Dirty tan head. No activity or carbonation. Chocolate, marshmellow, roasted nut, coffee hints. Smooth, complex but not heavy flavoring. Weeet, malty film covers roof of the mouth while bitter, coffee ground finish sneaks in and finishes wiht a tangy bitterness on tongue. Quality

the can is super cool for a beer like this! The pour was amazing and looked like a can of used motor oil. Nice little brown head and aroma of,,well not much. Taste is a bit too bitter with not much complexity and the palate is rougher than i like. Iím 50/50 on this beer.
