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.

this stout is like nothing else. when you pour it your thinking is this used motor oil its so thick, but then the smell hits you the rich creamy scent the wonderfull head even that is dark. If i do say so myself oskar blues created a masterpiece>

Pours from the 12 oz. can a thick, dark viscous black (yes, just like used motor oil) with minimal tan head that quickly fades into a light collar. Im holding it up to the brightest lamp in the room, and absolutely NONE of the light penetrates this beer! Aroma is surprisingly faint, but has hints of unsweetened dark chocolate & black coffee. 1st sip is surprisingly sweet...more dark chocolate, black coffee, malt roasted almost to the point of being "burnt", and a slight hint of smoke. On the swallow, there is a bitterness of alcohol and the the dark chocolate/coffee notes with a hint of hops. Mouthfeel is smooth, silky, and thick...the consistency of syrup or honey. Overall? Two words...simply amazing! This is the best beer I have ever had up to this point, and I want more!!!

UPDATED: JUN 10, 2013 Favorite stout. Thick and robust brew here folks. Rather smooth w mild carbonation and thick oily resin. Semi-sweet and pure joy to consume this dark as night concoction. This is a full-body and emense flavor profile yeilding hints of molasses, chicory, espresso, dark non-bittersweet chocolate and dark rum or robust bourbon.

Viscous and rich imperial stout. Pours like motor oil and drinks like coffee brown sugar goodness.

Definitely one of my favorite RIS. The 10.5 is hidden well although this beer really is as thick as oil. Probably the thickest beer Ive had. It is like drinking an oil slick. This one ages well so set a few on their side. Nice smooth and complex brew.

poured into a snifter, pours jet black & thick. Medium mocha head. nice lacing. Nose of candied prunes with a hint of alcohol. tastes of also candy prunes, raisins, alcohol, balanced nicely with a bitter lingering aftertaste. roasted malts. excellent stout.

Wow! Aroma has very rustic bourbon scent. Leaves a very balance palate for a bourbon barrel craft beer. This is a beer to drink in a cabin next to a fire on a icy cold day.

8oz on tap. Oh damn is this good. Wish I had some dark chocolate to enjoy with this beautifully dark beer.
