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.

12 ounce can pours a deep black color with a dark brown foamy head. Aroma is malt coffee chocolate sweet. Creamy highly viscous mouth feel. Nice chocolate and coffee flavors with a bit of hop bittering. A bit of alcohol burn in the end. Might be better at 8.5% instead of 12.5%. Very solid Imperial Stout

33 cl systembolaget. Svart färg. Doftar en del bröd men det är först vid smaken denna öl sticker ut. Massor av choklad och kaffe. Även en del alcohol. Väldigt god!

33 cl from Systembolaget. Black beer with beautiful creamy, frothy brown head. Very malty aroma is roasty and hoppy with chocolate and coffee. The same goes for the tasty flavour. Soft and oily mouthfeel. Astonishing stuff.

Some time back we had a number of visitors staying with us. For fun, they took turns going out and picking up varieties of beer. I kept notes about what we thought about each, but can not find them anywhere. I did find a bag of empties from that time period, so thought I would at least record those w/o commet and ratings from memory. This is one of those. (When I do find the notes it will be interesting to see how close I came)

One of the best pouring imp stouts I’ve ever seen! Pitch black dark with an awesome mocha head. Smells super anise which is a little off putting to me but don’t mind it much in the flavor. Not my typical style of stout which is usually heavy roast, coffee or bourbon. This is anise, dark fruit and spices but for some reason I love it because it is packed with flavor. Also extra points for being canned and accessible, although expensive.
