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.

Fantastic, velvet finish, with lots of deep roasted notes that plays with the hopping... a masterpiece of a RIS

Perfect. Absolutely perfect. First off the color is just epic black as night. Sweet, chocolatey aroma. Taste is just delicious. Roasty, sweet, and chocolate. NO alcohol taste and for 10.5% my hats off to them. Just really really awesome tasting. In my opinion the best imperial stout out there. Plus the name of the beer is awesome.

UPDATED: OCT 13, 2008 Draft at Maxís Baltimore. Opaque chocolate with a two-finger, lasting and creamy head. Aroma is a beautiful mix of orange, cocoa, caramel, espresso, dried wood, pure vanilla, smoke, and dried herbs. Flavor is awesome and pretty much the same as the aroma, except blended so well that you can get carried away with this one - dangerously chuggable. Heavy body is so smooth its ridiculous, has some tingle and just enough dryness on the finish.

UPDATED: JUN 2, 2009 Thick thick thick. Lots of chocolate flavor and smell. Donít spill this one because it will stain the hell out of a shirt! Definitely worth the mess though. I could drink this beer until I lay down and die. So good!

UPDATED: JUN 1, 2010 Drank from a pint glass out of a can. Iíve never seen a beer this thick; looks like chocolate pudding. The flavors in this beer are spectacular. Heavy on the chocolate, mixed in with coffee, some malts, and an almost milky flavor. It all comes together for the best stout Iíve ever tasted.

What a gorgeous mother of a beer! Deep black hole dark - light has no hope of passing throught this beer. Iíve never imagined a beer that thick and dark. Nice dark tan head with a little lace, doesnít last. Aroma is of bright dark chocolate, dark coffee beans, cooked sweet fruit - apple maybe?, and nice roasty goodness. Mouthfeel is as you would expect - syrupy thick - with velvety soft carbonation. Starts light - tate doesnít show up until the middle of the tongue. Starts with dark chocolate, carbon, licorice, maybe a hint of vanilla, deep woodsiness. Develops more into dark burnt roast - tastes like a campfire - in a good way. Alcohol is warming, but not overdone. An overlying sweetness doenís compete with the bitterness but keeps it from being unpleasant. Kind of a meatiness in the end, crips bitterness lasts in the end. What a glorious beer. I will dream of this, and I may write a song about it.

Pours like texas crude. tastes like chocolate, dry chocolate, bakers chocolate, and small hints of coffee. everything great about imperial stout is in this beer. This beer truly is flawlessly executed, a great example of imperial stout.
