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.

ChillCoat (1029) - Concord, California, USA - JAN 7, 2008
UPDATED: APR 8, 2008 Can via trade with drewbeerme. Pours pitch black and thick with a frothy tan head. Coffee and chocolate malt aroma but Iím surprised by how subtle it is. Tons of chocolate and a bit of bitter coffee. Slight licorice notes in the finish as it warms. Rather thin mouth feel and taste. Pretty bitter. A good beer but I expected to be blown away. I hope to re-rate this one. Re-Rate. Can via tertons. Pitch black and thick with a frothy, chocolate colored head. Coffee and chocolate aromas. Coffee notes. Chocolaty with a dry bitterness. Iím not picking up the licorice this time but everything else still plays about the same. A very solid beer.

Never knew a can this small could hide a beer this big. Intense from the first sip. Aromas of strong boozy chocolate, leather, and a little coffee. Notes of coffee and warm booze hits you with such sweetness you can not hold back a smile. Let it warm up to get more chocolate. All in all an amazing stout to savour and sip.

This is not a beer, this is an experience. Pours inky with a big brown head (looks like chocolate) and a moderate sweet mocha-chocolate nose. Flavor is enormously rich and presents an exception mix of both heft and smoothness. Coffee, milk chocolate, bread, and even a touch of cream all come out in the flavor. Despite the near 100 IBU, there is nothing bitter or abrasive here, though itís quite huge in flavor. Wheew, good, good stuff.

Dark coffee colored head. Pours like crude oil from a can. Smells is heavy of malt and burnt toast. Very toasty and carmelly taste. Bitter Iced coffee aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

Strong chocolate aroma mixed with coffee and roasted malts. Well mixed taste of chocolate and coffee. Alcohol warming and a bit lively on the carbonation.

More than merely opaque, this sucks the surrounding light out of the room. Taste so smooth and wonderful, it feels like a natural part of you. I drink only stouts, and I'm hard to please; I will drink this often, to remind myself of what a stout is supposed to taste like.

From notes on 3/30/15 On tap at Oskar Blues. Big thick dark body. Huge roasty chocolate, leather aroma. Just as big of a taste. Big, almost tobacco like flavor. Lots of roasted chocolate.

Hopmaestro (362) - ÷rebro, SWEDEN - APR 7, 2015
Aroma is dense and thick of chocolate, molasses and sweet and heavy malts. Taste is big and masculine, like a can of testosterone, dark and powerful. Thick malts, heavy syrup, a pinch of licorice. It ends dry and bitter.

Kauge (565) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 5, 2015
Can from a Systembolaget in Stockholm. Canned 10.08.2014. Pours black with a glare of mahogany. The headís tan, dark, not big, but retains and laces nicely. On the nose itís got a lot of roast and toast, molasses or even brown sugar, chocolate, and some piney-resiny hops to go with it. Tastes real chocolaty sweet with a lot of roasty notes, and a bunch of bitterness in the finish. The 98 IBU-s? Not quite hidden in this one. Mixes nicely with the roastiness. Thick and viscous, sticky, heavy body. Very soft and smooth in the mouth, almost no carbonation. When itís warm, I do get some of the 10.5% but by no means it is distracting. A very nice sweet and hoppy Impy. An excellent dessert beer.
