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.

Pour is pitch black with a bubbly brown head. Lots of coffee and dark fruit on the nose, toasted malt, caramel and anise. The dark fruit (cherries, plums) dominate the taste, there’s a good bit of toasted malt, dark coffee and bitter chocolate and caramel. Full bodied, super viscous. Delicious.

stoutnick (822) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JUN 13, 2013
Black with whitish head. Aroma is sweet malts and soy sauce. Taste comes together best as it warms - sweetness and roast combine to bring an oily quality. Overall, a good approachable imp stout, though not super big and thick.

Vignale (3076) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUN 25, 2013
Flaska från SB. Närmast kolsvart, centimeterhögt beige skum. Stor doft av mörka bär, torkad mörkfrukt, kaffe, soja, vanilj, chokladkola och alkohol som inte stör. Stora smaker, len och lite oljig i munnen, söt, fruktig, rostad och besk i bra balans. Eftesmak av söt tobak och torkad frukt. Välgjord, maffig och ungefär vad jag förväntat mig vilket mest är positivt, men någonstans också lite tråkigt.

Great deep dark red appearance. Very thick viscous beer. Delicious. Gets better as it warms slightly. Good beer for cold winter nights. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Philym (1003) - St Neots, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - AUG 21, 2013
Appearance: Dark brown/black with finger thick tan head. Aroma: Chocolate, woody, earthy, floral, pepper, bread, prune and note of marzipan. Taste: Medium sweetness, bitterness and sourness. Chocolate, bready and floral. Palate: Smooth light texture, body and mouthfeel. Average carbonation with a refreshing lingering finish of chocolate and alcohol warmth. Mildly astringent. Comments: Gorgeous. The ABV is totally masked by the beers other qualities. Very, very, very easy to drink. Glass lace.

Fritz123 (1535) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - SEP 2, 2013
Can from Total Wine in Boca Raton, FL. Small stout glass. Pours very black, viscous, and oily. Thin white head. Nose is almonds, chocolate, coffee, vanilla and roasted malts. The taste is very nice with malts, toffee, coffee, and a roasted nut flavor. Not overly boozy for a 10+% beer. Smooth mouth, slight bitter finish. Also a dry finish. Awesome from a can. Very well done.

2013 can to a tulip glass. Pours pitch black with a big brown head that had a dark tan cap. The head was impressively large and persistent for the abv. Nice sticky lacing, and texture is smooth and viscous. Aroma is dark chocolate malt, a little marachiano cherry and barley and coffee. Taste follows nose with the addition of some spice from the alcohol and a significant bitterness that is balanced among the other tastes. A thick, smooth mouthfeel with a little alcohol warmth. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A: Black, thick dark head, no retention S: Molasses, unsweetened chocolate, smoke, and grain. T: Smokey, coffee, raisins, roasty, molasses, burnt bitter finish, leafy hops, a touch of esters and cutting acid in the margin. Hints of rootbeer upon warming. M: FULL-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and soft carbonation, O: Amazing appearance, layered aromas and flavors, a great beer that’s not in my favorite style.
