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.

Wonderful stuff. The aroma is mostly roast malts like a bar-b-que. Flavor is malt sweetness with a hop finish.

UPDATED: JUN 6, 2008 THICK black pour, almost like motor oil. Dark tan head - very nice!. Very chocolaty aroma with blueberry and other vague fruity notes. Milky with a bit of funk. Raisins as well. Raisiny flavor with chocolate and coffee. A touch of sourness. Malty with a bit of alcohol on the finish. Fantastic beer!

Can shared with Josh: Pours a deep black with a creamy tan head. Massive roast on the nose with slight bakers chocolate. Taste is heavy with roast, chocolate and dyness. Finish is of carmel, roast, chcolate, very dry, and plety of hops. Very good.

Aroma is light with a sweet roasted scent. Color is beyond black, I think it could suck the light out of a room. Carbonation is low with a thick brown head that dissipates to a tight ring. Taste is roasted, rich and creamy. Starting with a full body it goes down creamy with a smooth rich feel. Finish comes in a bit lighter then I was expecting but it is a very rich sweet and roasted with chocolate and coffee flavors. After taste is bitter with a faint hop flavor show on the end. This is a good brew but I was expecting more from this brewery, its just not as rich and bold as I thought it would be for an Imperial Stout.

Pours black with a thick brown head. Little to no aroma. Taste was full of roasted malts, chocolate, coffee, etc. Itís what you get in an imperial stout. Reminiscent of Great Divideís Yeti.

Tasted 2/29/08. 12oz Can. Pitch dark brown hue. Brown head. Total coffee acidity with vanilla and oak aromas. Full bodied with a big toasty roasty coffee acidity flavor. Big malts and a big burn. Toffee and caramel flavors. Dry bitter hops. Full and rich. Oak and anise. Good tart astringency. Touch burnt but a good roast. Delicious!

UPDATED: MAR 23, 2010 Can at home ... Deep solid black ... rich complex malt aroma ... chocolate and liquorish ... lots of roast malts ... lots of vine fruits ... quite a bitter linger ... nice but not outstanding

TK2 can at Pre-ZBF ... deep back ... thin brown head .. sweet metalic malt nose .. soft roast .. little chocolate ... little metalic.

Because I didnít want to have to wait for my 1050th rating, I chose Ten Fidy for my 150th!!! This oil slick coated and stained the inside of my glass. Midnight body with a rich caramel head, this beer is as thick as whole milk and as fragrant as a gourmet coffee shop. There is absolutely no metallic attributes left from the aluminum. This beer would benefit from increased carbonation and the higher IBUís seemed a bit out of place. I expect and encourage monstrous hop levels in an IIPA, not in an RIS. Still the best beer Iíve experienced out of a can.

Thanks to Jw347 for this one. Can poured into a sniffer glass produced a fingers worth of coco colored head On top of a thick black body .The head goes to a nice layer of lace Aromasí of chocolate, grains (cereal), coffee and smoke fill your nose Taste is somewhat typical stout you get the roasted malts, chocolate, coffee thing going on but the hop presence is a bit more robust than the ordinary Mouthfeel is thick and creamy and goes down smooth A good RIS the hoppiest Iíve ever had. Drinkable as a RIS can get, you better be sipping this at 10%.Not the best Iíve had but not the worst either .I would recommend it. Truly a hopheads RIS

UPDATED: AUG 12, 2008 Can into snifter. Pours pitch black, no real head, just a tan ring around the outside of the glass, with noticeable lacing. A bit of a sensory disconnect seeing something this thick pour out of a can. Aroma is cocoa, big coffee, rich and sweet. Taste is dark chocolate and huge espresso up front, big and smooth. Finish is dry and bitter, green hops and a noticeable hit of acidity paired with a big espresso bitterness that sticks around. Palate is one of the thickest Iíve experienced, creamy and smooth with very subtle carbonation.
