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 at home. Black colour with a foamy tan head. Rich in roasted malt flavour. Deep, dark and delicious.

Can. Sweet, syrupy aroma. Pours jet black, with noticeably high viscosity, like used motor oil. Very sweet, with strong coffee, caramel, and hoppy flavors. Very dense, strong beverage, with clearly high ABV. I’d like to compare this one head to head with Great Divide Yeti Imperial Stout. They’re both similarly knockout beers. Ten Fidy is the best beer I’ve tasted from a can, to date.

Aroma is roasty molassess and creamy. Appearance is almost jet black with huge tan frothy head that doesnt dissipate quickly. Looked thick coming out of the can. Taste is big roasty molasses, also big hop bitterness. Palate is full and chewy. A big beer in every way. Lots of alcohol heat lingers. Overall this is a bit over the top IMO. I know thats the thing now, but this beer isnt very enjoyable. It is absolutely cloying, even with over the top bitterness and roast. In the end it manages to be cloying and over-bitter at the same time...... followed by hot boozy alcohol heat. Also not as complex as I would like for such a gigantic beer.

Obfuscate (388) - Minneapolis, - JAN 1, 2016
Canned 10/17/14 partaked on 1/1/16. Big fluffy brown/tan head. Jet black body. Get some dark chocolate and dark fruit in the smell but nothing overwhelming. Some creamy chocolate and toffee up front with a hit of booze and toasty coffee in the back.

Ten Fidy has come down in price quite a bit, this is part of a 4 pack. Beautiful. Dark, starts with thick quickly settling tan head, spotted lacing. Nose of graham crackers, dark chocolate, oak, and caramel. Mouthfeel is quite thick and syrupy. Warmth hits right away, and fine carbonation. Smoky and boozy as it sits in the mouth, but in a good mellow way. Quite well done. Not lots of different tastes, but well made.

First stout of Christmas and a strong (in both senses) start! Can - pours thickly with a soothing dark colour and sticky looking bubbles, and the aroma is molasses with a bit of tobacco and leather. Feels silky in the mouth, with burnt sugar notes, coffee and a hint of meat, balanced well a slight bitter hop aftertaste. Good carbonation too, without being too lively.

Gentle_Ben (22) - Rutland, ENGLAND - DEC 24, 2015
Pours as black as night with crema head. Flavours of chocolate, soy, and rich sherry booze but well countered by the hops. First imperial stout of Christmas and the bar is set extremely high!

Can split with Dave in late November 2015. I had this for maybe a year, can’t believe I left it there in the fridge that long. Pours like motor oil, nice amount of chocolate nad roast.

Rating #1448 - 22.01.2015 Sample from Myles (TruCraft at the time) at Coop. Burbly sinful black pour with almost no tan cap. Aroma is heavy roast malts,chocolate, espresso, earthTaste is heavy on roast malt and coffee flavours. the alcohol burn is less pronounced than expected, really well balanced for 10.5. A masterpiece. #5whore
