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.

UPDATED: JAN 17, 2015 12 oz can poured into a snifter. Black in color, light can’t penetrate this beer, light brown head dissipates quickly. Aroma of strong coffee, roasted malts. A slightly sweet taste that lingers. This is a full bodied, thick oily beer with mild carbonation and the flavor stays with you. This is not the best beer I’ve ever had, but it’s in the team photo. As a sidebar, if you buy it and don’t like it, you could always use it to sealcoat your driveway. This is really great beer!

10oz draft from shamrock. Jet black pour with khaki head. Aroma of espresso roast and molasses with hint of booze. Full body mouth feel with coffee and burnt caramel. Warming mouth feel with noticeable booze. Strong well balanced beer.

Thick, very creamy, and incredibly coffee like. Slick on the tongue, boozy, and some lingering bitterness.

Reimer96 (1375) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 28, 2014
Pours an opaque black with a frothy brown head that leaves foamy lace all the way up the snifter. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate, caramel, coffee, cocoa and alcohol. Taste is roasted malts, coffee, chocolate covered caramel, bitter cocoa and latte like creaminess from the oats. Smoothest big beer that you’ll likely find with this amount of dark malts... Absolute gem!

Pours really nicely and has a great malty smell and feel. Definitely a sipper, but great chocolate and coffee hints. Best stout Ive had from a can.

Dark black pour of a brew that smells of chocolate for sure. Taste is of chocolate and coffee and the thickness nicely coats the palate. One of the big boys and one of my go to stouts. Never have been let down by Ten Fidy and share it often.

can @ Vino Bellissimo / Lima OH --- Opaque brown/black with a 1/2" brown head, screens of lace. Taste is chocolate caramel and toasty malt that melts into the palate, adding coffee and biscuit before solid hops ease their way through for an outstanding, very long, finish. An exceptional big brew that hides the alcohol very well. Great for sipping in front of the fire.

dlihcsnatas (377) - Texas, USA - DEC 21, 2014
Black brew with brown head that fades fast. Smells like a dark chocolate bar so right off I want to tear into this one. Taste is heavy chocolate with a mild alcohol and a bit of coffee. Damn this is good stuff and here I was skeptical about all the good reviews. OK so I have a new favorite imperial stout but I have to dock overall points due to price tag and the fact that it comes in a CAN.

355ml can dated 9/16/13. Pours black with a half finger, tan head. Aroma had big notes of dark chocolate, cocoa, and hints of coffee and a nuttyness. Taste is balanced. Roasty malts, bitter chocolate, coffee, nuts, caramel, and toffee. Full body with a medium carbonation. Creamy but clean I?m the mouth. Overall very nice. Dark chocolate, coffee, nutty, caramel. Tasty.

Aroma is sweet, candy but roasted malt. Appearance is black, light brown head. Taste is same as the smell, this strange mix of candy sweetness and roasted malt. Mouthfeel is ridiculously thick, oily, flavor hangs. Overall, wow, very very nice stuff.
