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.

Can, cortesy of Jacob (Hildigöltur)
Black color; thin creamy brown head. Nice aroma, creamy, with caramel, dark chocolate and delicate roasted malt, hint of liquorice. Medium body strength, but the flavors wrap the mouth, in order with the dark chocolate, the malt, some roasted malt and some liquorice; even some nutty touch (roasted hazelnuts); oily and salty, just lightly metallic in the end. Well brewed, well stored, very good.

Thanks drmatt. The pour was impressively dark. Thick as its name implies and I managed to coax a one finger dark brown head. The aroma was sweet, coffee, bakers chocolate, light alcohol, burnt wood. Nice flavor, burnt coffee and chocolate, cherries, alcohol, then the 98 IBUs kick in at the end leaving a waxy hop feel at the back of the mouth. Very nice palate and lasting finish.

IndianaRed (2640) - Boise, Idaho, USA - DEC 19, 2007
On Tap at the Front Door on Boose, I’D. Black with a thick dense mocha colored head. Lots of sheeting lacing that lasts untill it dries on the sides of the glass. Big sweet roasted malty aroma. Lots of chocolate and a bit of coffee. Flavor is a terrific blend of some of the same characteristics. Plenty of roasted flavors and fairly sweet. Leathery and earthen. Just the right balance of bittterness that comes through right after. Velvety smooth feel, short of syrupy. Soft lingering woody burnt bite. Very drinkable for 9.4 ABV. Exellent.

Not what I was hoping for. I’m slowly starting tofeel like my imperial stout love affair is fizzling and oskar blues 1050 is taking the brunt of that. But dont get me wrong, I still didnt think this beer was all that great anyways. Dark brown probably blackish pour with small minimal head that quickly dissapears to nothingness. Nose was solid dark chocolate and cocoa, dark malts, raisin a bit, coffee. Flavor mostly dominated by the coffee and chocolate. Felt very 1-2 dimensional.....coffee and chocolate. Those things in the past may have made a beer for me, but this one misses the mark. And to think I used my 600th rating on it. Sad face.

The color was black as motor oil. The head was creamy, thin, and dark tan. The aroma was molasses, alcohol, chocolate, roast, coffee malt, and sweet malt. The flavor was coffee, molasses, sweet malt, roasty, chocolate, and alcohol. The palate was thick. The finish was warm and long-lasting.

cbkschubert (2900) - BFE, Arizona, USA - DEC 17, 2007
12 oz. can via trade with TAR - Pours a thick black color with a one and a half finger thick dark tan head which finally settled to a thin film. Nice, thick lacing. Aroma is roasted malt, light chocolate, and faint smoke. Flavor is roasted malt, chocolate, and light coffee. Palate is very smooth, but has a slight bitter, dry aftertaste. Medium body. An excellent beer. Best canned beer ever! Thanks Jeff.

thewolf (11289) - Kolding, DENMARK - DEC 17, 2007
Can, bought @ Řlbutikken, Cph. Pours pitch-black with a dense, creamy cappucino-brown head. Stunning lacing on the glass. Aroma is quite sweet, some dark coffee and loads of chocolate. Lightly burnt malts in the background with a slight hoppy edge to it. Very creamy mouthfeel, rather low carbonation. Flavour is heavily roasted, lots of chocolate (And I mean LOTS!), some coffee and smoke appear as well. Extremely well-rounded, the 9,4 % is nowhere to be found. Very, very nice!
