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.

Oily black. Powerful and bitter. Reminds me of finding baker's chocolate in the cupboard as a kid and thinking I was in for a treat. You take a big bite of bitter. You think about spitting it out, but it is stuck to your teeth.

Poured to a snifter from a can, very dark and black appearance with a small brown head. Lots of roasted malts and chocolate in the aroma, taste is not too sweet, but quite balanced. Finishes a bit bitter and with a touch of alcohol, actually thought that abv was a bit higher. Mouthfeel was very oily and thick with carbonation that smoothened a bit after a while. A very nice beer overall!

Really full nice body. Aggressive roastiness, with some earthy rye spice quality to it, dark roasted malts, well rounded with a espresso dark chocolate touch, and a nice bitter bite to it at the end. Feel like this barrel aged would be amazing.

@ Röhällavägen 150219. Can (355 ml) from Systembolaget. Roasted malty with light hoppy notes, coffee and chocolate, vanilla and licorice, quite sweet, full body with an oily texture. The long finish is dry and bitter, roasted and sweet with notes of chocolate. Nice.

Ten Fidy, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways! One of my all time favorite beers, and certainly my favorite beer from a can. So rich and satisfying. Bursting with flavor, but not overly sweet. I don’t want to say this beer is thick, but if you leave some in a glass and let it dry, it hardens into a candy - like substance.

Keg at BD Shepherd’s Bush tap takeover, London. It pours dark brown color with a large mocha head. Aroma is intensely roasty with some dark chocolate and cocoa. Taste is bold, bitter and sweet with dark chocolate, espresso, brown sugar and cedar wood. Body is full, with creamy texture and good carbonation. Overall, really good RIS

Cellared for 3 years. Two finger mocha head and pours pitch black like used motor oil. Huge notes of roasted malt and coffee. Sweet taste of cocoa upfront with toffee and coffee aftertaste. Definitely worth the wait.

It’s thick, black, and intense enough to fill your whole mouth. Freud would have a hay day with that sentence, but I refuse to tone it down because this is Ten FIDY we’re talking about. The Imperial Stout that’s smooth enough to pass as an Oatmeal Stout, hoppy enough to remind you of an IPA, and boozy enough to knock you on your ass. Yeah, that’s Ten FIDY for you. It looks like motor oil, has a head like chocolate velvet, smells like roasted malt and booze, and tastes like- Well, it would be impossible to describe the taste in a tidy sentence. There’s bittersweet chocolate, charred malt, big hops, silky oats, subtle caramel, and warm booze. Mouthfeel is viscid as all hell. Though Dale’s Pale Ale put Oskar Blues on the map, Ten FIDY is every bit as deserving of fame.

Can. A- Roasty, sharpie markers, subtle anise, caramel, cocoa, malty, alcohol, slightly bitter. A- Black color, black liquid, brown head. T- Roasty, malty, bitter, cocoa, mocha,subtle caramel, alcohol. P- Full body, average texture, average carbonation, roasty bitter finish. O- This was a beer I’ve wanted since I got into craft and now that Oskar Blues is in Nebraska I got my chance! I had immensely high expectations and I would say that overall they were met. The aroma was beautiful but it was softer and not as robust as I hoped for. The appearance was second to none. The taste was very well balanced and while I personally would’ve preferred a more malty finish over the slightly bitter one, I am not complaining. I really want to try the Stranahan’s Whisky barrel aged one now!
