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.

What an imperial stout is supposed to look, feel, and rate like. Thick pour, giant tan head that stays (requires a slight hard pour to get the foam)...awesome thick rich roasted taste with perfect hoped finish. It will knock your socks off. Molasses and licorice in the middle. Well done Oscar Blues. If you like big bold bad ass stouts, grab some of these bad mfers! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

thegreenrooster (3299) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - DEC 13, 2014
Pour is a black motor oil out of the can. A small tan head forms with the aroma of an intense roasted malt with caramel and chocolate. Flavor is more of a rich chocolate with a heavy roasted malt mouthfeel but some hops are present as well. After 2k ratings there is not much more to say. a super thick an enjoyable beer.

Year-old can into goblet, 3/1/14. Dark brown, tan head. Nose of chocolate, toffee, roast, coffee. Tastes big sweet dark caramel, milk chocolate, prunes, coffee, plus plenty of hop bitterness too. Very rich and viscous, silky smooth body, softish carb. Top drawer.

degbert (1195) - Austin, Texas, USA - DEC 2, 2014
Can. Pours black as a Koch brotherís heart. High, medium brown, lacy, mixed-grain head. Nose is Dutch chocolate, coffee, smoke, dates, mint, and vanilla. On the palate -- holy gods, thatís big. Big coffee, big chocolate, lots of boozy vanilla flavors, fruit, some sweetness. Quite intense. Still manages to hold together into a coherent whole, though; itís not a mess, itís a well-balanced, tight, elegant beer that happens to have all the subtlety of a brick dropped into oatmeal. Finish is long, dry, and rife with smoke and coffee. Thisíll keep you warm for sure.

Can. Pours pitch black with a nice bownish head. Taste like dark chocolate with an aftertaste of hops.
