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.

The aroma is malts, coffee, toasty, caramel. Pours black with caramel brown head mostly diminishing, good lacing. The taste is bitter. The body is medium, the texture creamy, the carbonation lively and the finish a long bitter. Overall very good.

Garrold (1214) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 26, 2014
Tap at Brewdog, Sheffield. Dark chocolate brown. Thin, lasting, creamy, tan coloured head, that moves slower than the rest of the beer. Beautiful looking beer. Smells a lot like hot chocolate, made with Valhrona chocolate. Which is a very good thing. Treacle, too. Some woody booziness, like a barrel aged affair. Taste is caramel sweet. Woody dry. Palate is thick, chewy and boozy. Quality chocolate all the way through this beer. Lovely.

From 12oz can to snifter. Pour is jet black with a thick brown head. Nose is huge roasted malt, alcohol, dark fruits, dark chocolate, coffee. Taste is heavy bodied, bitter taste, hints of sweetness. Finishes very smooth with a touch of alcohol on the tongue. Happy I finally got to try this, so complex and completely lived up to its reputation.

Nocturne (764) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - MAY 17, 2014
Tap at BrewDog Manchester. Dark black with a brown head. Sweet, malty taste up front that reminds me of a chocolate milkshake initially before I start picking up some traces of coffee and a touch of smoke. Throw in some molasses too. Mouthfeel is very thick. Really good for a non-BA stout.

Dark pour with a massive mocha head. Roasted malts, chocolate and coffee on the nose. Full flavor, complex with a great lingering taste. Very enjoyable.
