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.

Alextricity (509) - Michigan, USA - MAR 26, 2013
Canned 1/03/13 "One ’til November?" Appearance: As you’d expect, the beer is pitch black with a pretty small head. The head is a dark brown, and the lacing is poor. Nothing out of the ordinary for an Imperial Stout, but it’s still very good looking. Smell: Probably my favorite part about this beer. I love the milk chocolate aromas I get, as well as the woodiness. I don’t get any sort of coffee note from Ten Fidy like a lot of people seem to get. However, I do get plenty of sweetness and dark fruit aromas. Taste: Super sweet with dark fruits up front, and the finish is almost equally as sweet with some smokey tasting malts in there. I was expecting SOME amount of bitterness in this beer, but I actually find it to almost be cloyingly sweet. Keep in mind I haven’t had many IS’s (maybe three or four), but this one seems to be the sweetest that I’ve had. Once the beer warms up a little bit, the sweetness dominates even more. The smell turns much more heavily to sweet, dark fruit, and the taste does the same... cherries come out a LOT once the beer warms up a lot. Feel: Along with the smell, the feel is among the best parts of this beer. As to be expected, super thick, coats the mouth wonderfully, and just smooth as all hell. The best thing about the feel though is that it never feels syrupy despite the thickness. Overall, Ten Fidy is a good beer ... when it’s colder. Given its ABV AND the fact that it’s a big Imperial Stout, it’d be hard to drink this one quickly. I find Ten Fidy to be much more enjoyable when it’s colder, as it gets much too sweet when it warms up, and the roasty tastes seem to go way in the background to the super sweetness. I’d definitely try this one again, but $4 for a can and about $15 for a six-pack is a bit too high for a guy that doesn’t particularly love RIS’s for the most part. Definitely try Ten Fidy and decide for yourself. While I certainly think this beer is better than a 15/20 overall, it was the most accurate way I could get my final score to be a solid 4.

Franckg (1118) - 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.

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.

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
