The opposite of restraint. With its "maximum everything" approach, Ten FIDY comes through on the aroma and appearance front. The former is rich, potent and full of smokey chocolate. The latter is impenetrably dark, with a relief of a beige, lacy head. Lack of subtlety starts to hurt on the taste front, however. The supercharged alcohol shows up too soon, too strong, and lingers too long, overshadowing the complex, interesting notes buried at unfortunate depths.

Pours black as black can be with a dark leather tan head. Warm dark roasted malts hit the nose like black German bread and bold roasted coffee. Flavor matches the nose but richer and fuller. Definite alcohol presence but not overbearing. Truly delicious.

Poured from a 12 oz. Can at home. This beer is Awesome. I was really surprised by this beer out of a can. This has changed my thoughts about canned beers. This is a remarkable stout that pours dark black with a tan head. Smells of chocolate and malt. Taste is the same! First is the bitterness of the chocolate and a little coffee in there. The after-taste is just a really smooth, good taste on the back of your tongue. Overall, this beer is is just a solid stout that I would highly recommend.

3.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from a can into a snifter.
Appears black with a light brown/tan head. Higher carbonation than expected.
Aroma is sweet. Close to chocolate... Slight roasting/coffee. Repeated breathes give a light bourbon component. A nice touch.
Taste is oak, coffee, and roast with sweet in there somewhere. Possibly chocolate. Some bitterness but this moves into the palate.
Mouthfeel/palate is described as perfect! Bitterness balances sweet in an incredible way. Never never never would say this is 98 IBUs. The carbonation contributes to the after burn however itís comparable to a highly carbonated beer. So Iím saying well done... From a guy who does not like over hopped beer.
Overall one of the best stouts Iíve ever had. Without barrel aging or additional components! Welcome to Minnesota Oskar Blues!

WOW. This is a remarkable stout. Completely opaque with a tan head. Very strong chocolate and roasted malt almost makes the alcohol content unnoticeable. Also, I love the can.

3.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bought in four pack cans. Poured into glass. Has a very dark thick appearance and the aroma is nice and Carmel sweet smelling.. The taste is very smooth at first. Slight hoppiness during swallowing. But it mellows out quickly for a smooth dark aftertaste. Caramel, coffee, smoke comes to mind.. Imperial stouts are my favorite so I gave this one a high ranking for my preference.
