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.

oh6gdx (20244) - Vasa, FINLAND - FEB 27, 2008
Canned (thanks ante!). Pretty much pitchblack colourwith small brown head. Aroma is really smoked and roasted malts along with chocolate, some vanilla, cocoa, coffee and burnt wood. Flavour is the same with some dark dry fruits, mild spices and quite hoppy. Bitter finish. Differs from the impy stout masses.

Canned, thanks ante! Very black with pale brown head. Aroma of chocolate and licorice. Sweet and thick heavily malty with syrup and molasses. Finishes with tarry bitterness. More big and powerful than complex.

madmitch76 (14469) - , Essex, ENGLAND - JAN 9, 2010
16th September 2008. Imperial stout in a can! Opaque black beer. Silky smooth with a repressed coffee start and a clear and distinct sweet fruit note of blueberry and blackcurrant. Warming semi dry finish with a little toasted malt in the aftertaste. Goes down very well indeed!

fiulijn (14340) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 20, 2007
Can, cortesy of Jacob (Hildigöltur)
Black color; thin creamy brown head. Nice aroma, creamy, with caramel, dark chocolate and delicate roasted malt, hint of liquorice. Medium body strength, but the flavors wrap the mouth, in order with the dark chocolate, the malt, some roasted malt and some liquorice; even some nutty touch (roasted hazelnuts); oily and salty, just lightly metallic in the end. Well brewed, well stored, very good.
