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.

Taken as an 8oz pour. Black with a dark tan head. Roast chocolate and charred malts dominate. This is such an excellent rendition, good job!

Heavy nickel and cream and alcohol aroma. Black color with super thick tan head. Snap. That’s heavy feeling but really balanced taste.

Pours a deep black with a luscious, consistent light brown head white slowly recedes to a foamy layer on top leaving a lacing on the glass whilst doing so. Aroma is red berries/currants, chocolate and a bit of roast. Taste is cocoa (comes with a cocoa-like coating on the tongue!), earthy, roasted coffee slightly bitter but balanced out by a pleasant oatmeal-ish sweetness. Im not sure this would go up a straw, it has the thickness of rice pudding. Full bodied and full of wonder.

Seffle (234) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - FEB 21, 2015
Can from SB 150221. Pitch black with a very firm mocca head. Very intense flavour with dark dark chocolate, brown sugar, hardroasted coffee, etc. An excellent Imp Stout. A bit expensive, though at 50 SEK for a can. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Oily black. Powerful and bitter. Reminds me of finding baker's chocolate in the cupboard as a kid and thinking I was in for a treat. You take a big bite of bitter. You think about spitting it out, but it is stuck to your teeth.

joohyvni (1) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 21, 2015 does not count
Poured to a snifter from a can, very dark and black appearance with a small brown head. Lots of roasted malts and chocolate in the aroma, taste is not too sweet, but quite balanced. Finishes a bit bitter and with a touch of alcohol, actually thought that abv was a bit higher. Mouthfeel was very oily and thick with carbonation that smoothened a bit after a while. A very nice beer overall!

Can - big dark tan foamy head, pitch black color, very roasty and chocolatey aroma and flavor, very well balanced, not overly sweet, not a huge stout fan but this is excellent ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Really full nice body. Aggressive roastiness, with some earthy rye spice quality to it, dark roasted malts, well rounded with a espresso dark chocolate touch, and a nice bitter bite to it at the end. Feel like this barrel aged would be amazing.
