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.

Zlotta (1209) - Amstelveen, NETHERLANDS - MAR 16, 2016
UPDATED: MAR 17, 2016 0.355 l can from ’Firma Bier’ shared at Marko’s place, canned on July 28, 2015. Very dark red to black with a medium large, creamy, brown head. Sweetish-malty, roasty aroma of dark chocolate, coffee, vanilla, pralinés and hints of dark ripe fruits. Sweetish-malty, slightly roasty taste of dark chocolate, coffee, vanilla and pralinés, followed by a medium long, moderately roasty-bitter finish. Full body, thick and creamy mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Nicely balanced, rather intense, very tasty. Good!

adamnowek (1432) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - MAR 16, 2016
Can for zlotta’s thousandth rating! Blacker than black. Head is coffee coloured, and quite dense. Coffee ground aroma. The taste is where the booze really comes out, with a lot of freshly used coffee grounds and a slightly sour finish. Carbonation seems high.

ABS (805) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 15, 2016
Can from Vinmonopolet’s BU. Very close to black body, with a slight dark brown hue. No head. Vanilla, cold coffee and alcohol nose. Velvet mouth feel. Thick oily body. Quite a lot of carbonation, considering there was no head. Very sweet, with some well hidden bitterness. Vanilla, dark chocolate, roasted malt and cold, dark coffee flavour. Also some candi sugar and ester. Some nut flavour as well. Very complex. Best enjoyed at above 12 degrees C.

Stoned99 (977) - Quebec, CANADA - FEB 20, 2016
Proper glassware on tap at Mead Hall. Aroma: great chocolate, a tad of roasted malt. App: this is quite dark in here but I would say pitch black, medium brown head, great lacing. Taste and palate: full body, creamy, medium sweetness, great bitter finish. Overall: good stuff. Really smooth. Unfortunately this is served too cold so hopefully my last few sips will be at proper temperature. Pretty good. Even at this temperature.
