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.

Nocturne (752) - 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.

Tap. Whew we. This is good stuff. Deeps dark color. One of the darkest heads I have ever seen. Chocolate coffee aroma. Taste is complex. Chocolate, coffee, fruitcake, licorice, with a slight hoppy finish. Nice.

This beer is an experience. Milk chocolate, caramel, toffee and nice subtle roastiness up front. Midway, the alcohol becomes slightly evident, but immediately seems to morph into licorice and accents of dark sweet fruit that mixes nicely with the flavors up front. Finish is accentuated by moderate booze, which is smoothed out by chocolate milk and malty dark fruits. Aftertaste is faint licorice.

superspak (2468) - Michigan, USA - MAY 9, 2014
12 ounce can into snifter, canned on 9/16/2013. Pours dense pitch black color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense dark tan head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of big dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, roasted malt, caramel, toast, molasses, raisin, plum, and roast/toasted earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of big dark/roasted malt notes with light-moderate fruitiness; with good strength. Taste of big dark chocolate, cocoa, roasted malt, coffee, toast, caramel, molasses, raisin, plum, light char, and roast/toasted earthiness. Good amount of roasted bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of dark chocolate, cocoa, roast, coffee, toast, caramel, molasses, light char, raisin, plum, and roasted earthiness on the finish for a while. Fantastic complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roasted malt and light-moderate fruitiness; with a great roasted bitterness/sweetness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Light-medium carbonation and very full bodied; with a very creamy, moderately slick, and lightly chalky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with only a light warming present after the finish. Overall this is an awesome imperial stout. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of dark.roasted malt flavors and light-moderate fruitiness; and very smooth to sip on for the big ABV. A highly enjoyable offering.

Toadvine (72) - Arizona, USA - MAY 9, 2014
Can. Pours an opaque jet black with a small amount of mocha head. Aroma and taste are sweet booze, roasted malts, and chocolate. By far the best canned beer I've had.

unclemike (2214) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - MAY 5, 2014
Roasted chocolate and a hint of alcohol make up the nose. Black in color with a brown head. Full palate lies under a full chocolate flavor with great roasted presence. Light hop character plays behind the scenes throughout the experience which is very enjoyable and well done

Aged 6 months in can. Pours pitch black with a brown tall head that dissipates quickly. Slightly sweet aroma with a tinge of coffee and a full stout flavor. Great balance of bitter and sweet.
