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.

Growler poured into a pint glass. Pitch black with a 1" tan head. Nose is caramel, dark chocolate...bittersweet, coffee, oats, taste is the same. Alcohol is hot on this one, more so than other stouts of this ABV. Medium carbonation, medium heavy mouthfeel. This is a great sippin' beer. Well done! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aroma: Huge amounts of roasted malts with some marshmallow; bitter dark cacao. Appearance: Inky black pour with a foamy mocha tuft that fades into a slim skin. Flavor: Big roast up front with marshmallow impressions thereafter, leading to a very bitter cacao finish. Palate: Full body, creamy texture, soft carbonation, very bitter finish. Overall: A pretty intense beer, but not the most enjoyable IS for me.

Poured from a 12 oz. can into a tulip glass. Aroma- HMMM, coffee, caramel and malt. fantastic. Appearance- Looks like I just poured my old engine oil into a glass (that’s actually a compliment) Taste- The best Russian Imperial Stout I have ever had. I could also say the only RIS that I cared for. But this awesome tasting. Palate- A heavy brew with moderate carbonation, has a creamy texture and a good alcohol feel after the swallow. Overall- World class, I now know why people flip over this beer.

jc1762 (124) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAR 1, 2015
Can into a shaker showing big black center with very thin coffee brown rims. The nose shows a lot of roasted malts and big notes of dark chocolate & toasted coffee bean. The palate is highly carbonated and full bodied. The first impression shows a lot of dark chocolate notes with a slight lactose sweetness. Some small hints of bourbon & smoke here and there. A clear and strong espresso background permeates throughout the whole beer. The alcohol appears slightly on the finish but overall dominant on the coffee and chocolate flavors. Dark chocolate bitterness on the finish. Overall, this is a really nice after meal beer.

Sampled this in Idaho. Very thick heavy beer. nice stout character, but has a different taste that hits up front. Grows on you after a couple drinks. worth drinking again ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

355ml can. Pitch black with tall dark brown head. Aroma of sweet chocolate, molasses, coffee, roasted malts and some almost peaty smoky tones. Dry, roasted bitter taste but also pleassant filling chocolate. Wonderful smooth mouthfeel with very light carbonation without feeling flat, great lasting bitterness.

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