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.

brewskis (123) - Saint John, Indiana, USA - NOV 2, 2012
UPDATED: DEC 7, 2012 Pours dark as night with a half finger dark mocha colored head. Can tell that it is very viscous and oily, as it is sticking to the glass when swishing the beer around. Leaves a thick lacing. Smells of dark, roasted chocolate and roasted coffee, so the roasted malt and barley are definitely there. Also get some peat, vanilla, some oak, little sweetness, grapes, booze. Taste starts with lots of smokey qualities, dark chocolate, coffee beans. Then in the middle, you start to get the hop bitterness, as well as some creamy coffee and chocolate. Then the finish is very intense because the 98 ibus really come through. Get lots of dark, smokey chocolate, some floral notes, more coffee, some vanilla, some oak qualities, some licorice, maybe some soy sauce. Alcohol is well hidden. As it warms, it becomes smoother and creamier. Mouthfeel is creamy and oily. Full body with a deep warming sensation. My first imperial stout out of a can. A big beer, but very smooth nonetheless. Really good.

Franckg (1109) - Trois-Rivičres, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 12, 2016
UPDATED: AUG 12, 2016 Canette datée du 28/08/2015, bue aprčs 1 an. Robe noire opaque surmonté d’un mince col de mousse beige et dense. Arômes de malt rôti, noisettes et chocolat noir. Quelques effluves de grains de café entiers de moyenne torréfaction, anis et caramel brűlé. En bouche, chocolat et noisettes grillées enrobés d’un malt rôti épais. Suivent des saveurs de café au lait, poudre de cacao, bois sec et oů le malt rôti revient en force pour créer un longue amertume avec une touche chocolatée. Texture onctueuse et corps rond. Haut taux d?alcool imperceptible. Ŕ la hauteur de mes attentes.

This is a big, meaty impy stout. Pours like oil from the can, with a dark brown head. Thick and sticky, loads of burnt caramel, roasted malt, bitter dark chocolate. Intense and delcious.

Dark, opaque black with a light brown frothy head. Chocolaty, malty aroma. Smooth creamy feel, with light sweetness up front and bitter dark chocolaty finish. Very nice.

Úgy folyik ki a dobozból, mintha az ördög főzte volna, ennél sűrűbb, olajosabb és feketébb imperial stout-tal nem sűrűn találkozni. Pirított, pörkölt, de leginkább égetett, grilles illatok mordulnak fel kis idő múlva, miután kicsit akklimatizálódott, s megszokta a helyét. Tonnányi maláta súlya nehezedik hamarosan gyanútlan fogyasztójára, szinte szétfeszíti a pohár falát. Vészjósló, füstös, fekete ízek, melyek mégis lágyan pörkölt, olvadékony jegyek szövevényét alkotják, faháncsos, földes, sültes elemek férfias karakterét, a hosszan elnyúló kesernye masszív jellegét hosszú perceken át élvezhetjük. Keményvonalas imperial stout.

Can into a snifter. Pours black with a dense tan head that lasts. Nose is caramel and coffee, and the taste follows, with a bitter chocolate finish. Outstanding.

Holmen2 (2775) - NORWAY - JUL 11, 2016
From tap at ŘST with JMD 11.06.16. Almost ebony. Brown head and lacing. Fine aroma and taste of roasted malt, dark chocolate, coffee, juniper and a hint of herbs. Quite dry, but still with a touch of dark toffee.

Motor oil. Heavy roasted aromas, roasted malt, roasted coffee, chocoalte, vanilla. Heavy bitter and roasted flavors, coffee and chocolate. A bit on the boozy side finish-wise. Best beer I’ve tried from a can.

beezydrunkit (20) - Alabama, USA - JUL 4, 2016
Poured into snifter. Motor oil black with little to no head. Dark coffee and semi bitter dark chocolate and cocoa aroma. Flavor was rich and heavy. Bitter espresso, dry aged dark chocolate, toffee. Super smooth. Hidden alcohol under layers of flavor. Excellent brew. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
