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. 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.

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.

Beaver (1337) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 14, 2007
12 oz can. Pours a thick opaque black with a creamy dark brown head (after a vigorous pour) that recedes to a thin film that leaves some lacing.

The aroma is a little subdued compared to on draft - sweet lactic chocolate, roasted malts, coffee, and a little vinous fruitiness.

The flavor is roasted chocolate malts, coffee and black licorice with a little dark fruit sour twang. It has a decent roasted bitter finish. The alcohol is well hidden. The mouthfeel is medium to full and a little watery.

Overall, an excellent impy stout. It was even better on tap though.

RBSG 07 Minneapolis Grand Tasting: Black, no head or lacing. Nose of bright licorice and chocolate, tons of alcohol and char. Nice chewy cocoa and mocha, janky hops and caramel, mostly earthy hops. Full and malty, its nice. Like a euro techno dance club. Its stupid, but you cant stop looking.
