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.

UPDATED: MAY 16, 2008 Can! Huge thanks to Ernest for hooking me up with several cans of this bad boy - Wow this is good stuff. Color is dark as night with a medium tan colored head. Aroma is big, thick & smoky. I’m getting some freshly grilled sausages, dark coffee, and extremely well roasted malt in there. Flavor is an extremely roasty-dark-bitter mix of smoke, chocolate, coffee, cream, and bitter hops. Really overwhelming - assaults the tongue! Not my favorite Impy stout to date, but how awesome is it that this came from a can? A Can! If this makes it to PA that would just allow me to die in peace. Oskar Blues "Gets it" and understands that getting stuff like this to the people in cans is the way to go. Brilliant!

Poured jet black with a brown creamy head. Aroma of choclate and roasted malt. Good smeller. Flavors of chocolate and caramel to start and finished with warm roasted malt texture. Thanks franksnbeans for hooking me up!

UPDATED: OCT 24, 2007 Firkin (10.23.07) Oskar Blues Pub Crawl - Decatur, GA. - This was the best tasting TenFidy I have had. It was dryer and smoother than the draft form. The alcohol was really subdued in the cask version. It became a alot more "drinkable" and well rounded.

Draft (july 2007)- This was pretty tasty. A lot of dark roast malt and a nice hoppy balance to the sweetness.

Big thanks to drmatt for hooking me up with this gem. Poured from a 12 oz can. Aroma of dark, bitter chocolate, spent coffee grounds, leather, charred wood, tar. Lots of "roastiness" going on. Just a wisp of vanilla. Literally pours like motor oil out of the can. Opaque black. Leaves an oily brown stain on the side of my glass. Thin, dark khaki head. Boatloads of roasted malt on the palate. Bitter chocolate, bitter coffee. Very dry. Charred tobacco leaf. Dry leather. A hint of vanilla ice cream and milkshake on the backside. Viscous and oily with a nice level of carbonation. Could tone down the bitterness, just a tad, though. Very nice stuff. Thanks Matt!

On tap poured an opaque black with a small lingering brown head. Aromas of roasted malt, bitter chocolate, coffee and a hint of vanilla. Palate was medium to full bodied and smooth. Flavors of roasted malt, coffee, bitter chocolate and a hint of vanilla with a smooth dry roasty finish.

Can, with thanks to drmatt for the chance to finally try this! Pours a dark black with a creamy three finger brown head, great lacing. Sits quite beautifully in the glass! Aroma is fresh ground coffee, bittersweet chocolate, molasses, and slight vanilla and dark fruits. Flavor is full of roast, with more coffee, cocoa and vanilla. This is a very well done IS, and hope their availability in cans continues.

Can. Yeah. Aroma is very cold coffee and roasted, very nice. Pours like a black coffee with cream (tan head). Taste is slightly creamy, mostly bitter coffee with a somewhat long finish of bitter, smooth coffee. Very solid, very straightforward.

Several samples at the GABF. Dark roasted flavors of oily dark chocolate, slightly warming in alcohol. Some hops are present.

BlackForestCO (978) - Aurora, Colorado, USA - OCT 14, 2007
UPDATED: MAR 2, 2009 Poured from a can. Poured a thick black color with a moderate chocolate colored head. Aroma of chocolate, coffee, roasted malts, and oats. Roasted malts greet you upon first sip, but along the way you are met with flavors of chocolate, dark fruits, and some hops. Roasted coffee finish. Thick, creamy mouthfeel. Great beer, I will be running down to Lyons more and more now.
