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.

Thick as oil and dark as night as the name suggests. Subtle thin Milk chocolate head. Stout lovers stout. This is one of few standard go-to stouts for me because it is big and bold. Aroma is present but not big and includes dark fruit, roasted coffee and dark chocolate. The taste is complex and long with the afore mentioned notes plus leather and earth. The IBUs are big making the finish even to the start, big all the way through and awesome.

Oskar Blues Ten FIDY has a thin, beige head and a dark brown (black, really) appearance, with some splotchy lacing left on the glass. The aroma and flavor are bold: the smell is of sweet, dark-roasted (but, not burnt) malt, sugar, and coffee, and the flavor is of those elements, with a touch of char, sugar, oatmeal puree’, mild black liquorice, background celery, and bitterness, which being counter-balanced by the extreme malt, does not come across as a 98 IBU thing. Mouthfeel is heavy and viscous, and Oskar Blues Ten FIDY finishes in between wet and dry, with an alcohol presence noticeable in the body, but not so much in the flavor. Actually, not at all in the flavor, really. RJT

bnokk (276) - Ohio, USA - JUN 1, 2015
2013 vintage in 2015. APPEARANCE - super black pour. Upon swirling in the glass, the beer’s viscosity becomes evident. NOSE - deep aroma and flavor, sweet slightly alcoholic aromas. FLAVOR - thoroughly flavorful stout. Deep and rich flavors. You know the rest, because there are over 2200 ratings. NOTES - Deserves accolades, but I don’t think it’s a 100 beer.

T: Dark chocolate is right up front, roasted malts, a hint of oak, with a bit of char and bitterness in the end. M: Thick with a hint of carbonation.

My favorite beer from Oskar Blues (and that’s saying something). 4 oz chilled pour into a cylindrical tasting glass from tap at the brewery’s taproom. Fresh as can be! Dark black and opaque with a lasting brown nose. Hell of a nose. Malty, burnt notes, and scotch. Taste is very layers. Huge amounts of caramel, some coffee, a little scotchy booziness, some oakiness, and a little chocolate syrup to finish. Pretty much every flavor you could hope for from a stout, all in different waves. Apparently 98 IBUs. Hides that crazy well; I tasted almost no bitterness.
