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.

UPDATED: FEB 4, 2014 Can. Roasted malts, sweet chocolate aroma. Taste is mild bitterness and heavy sweetness (chocolate). Pours motor oil black with a medium head. Palate is super thick and creamy. Delightful, really. Thereís an aftertaste that I canít pinpoint, but I like it. A fantastic stout, no doubt.

355 ml bottle from Systembolaget. Pitch dark pour with a thin dense tan head. Really beautiful. Wonderful nose with ground coffee, light vanilla, lots of dark chocolate and roasted malts. Taste is really balanced. Some light bitterness, chocolate, liquorice, vanilla, toffee and coffee. The ABV is completely hidden. This is how I like my imperial stouts, balanced and tasty!

Pours dark as ink, with a nice tan head. Aroma of malts and dark fruits. Taste of complex and rich malts, slightly sweet, still very drinkable. This is an excellent imperial stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured from can to glass. Opaque black hue with brown head that lingered. Aroma is roasted malt, cocoa, coffee, vanilla, caramel, slight smoke, umami, cola. Mouthfeel is fantastic with a medium full body and great carbonation. Taste is sweet throughout with a sharpness following and a sweet roasted ethanol finish. Overall this is a great imperial sweet stout. Plus, I love that its in a can for hiking. "Pack it in, pack it out."

Pours black as black can be with a dark leather tan head. Warm dark roasted malts hit the nose like black German bread and bold roasted coffee. Flavor matches the nose but richer and fuller. Definite alcohol presence but not overbearing. Truly delicious.

Poured from a 12 oz. Can at home. This beer is Awesome. I was really surprised by this beer out of a can. This has changed my thoughts about canned beers. This is a remarkable stout that pours dark black with a tan head. Smells of chocolate and malt. Taste is the same! First is the bitterness of the chocolate and a little coffee in there. The after-taste is just a really smooth, good taste on the back of your tongue. Overall, this beer is is just a solid stout that I would highly recommend.

Poured from a can into a snifter. Appears black with a light brown/tan head. Higher carbonation than expected. Aroma is sweet. Close to chocolate... Slight roasting/coffee. Repeated breathes give a light bourbon component. A nice touch. Taste is oak, coffee, and roast with sweet in there somewhere. Possibly chocolate. Some bitterness but this moves into the palate. Mouthfeel/palate is described as perfect! Bitterness balances sweet in an incredible way. Never never never would say this is 98 IBUs. The carbonation contributes to the after burn however itís comparable to a highly carbonated beer. So Iím saying well done... From a guy who does not like over hopped beer. Overall one of the best stouts Iíve ever had. Without barrel aging or additional components! Welcome to Minnesota Oskar Blues!
