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 is the only Oskar Blues I’ve ever had...and found it by accident at Brickskeller in DC. A thick black pour, with a slightly thin head. The presence of alcohol is definitely displayed, but nicely camouflaged under the pleasant taste of smokey chocolate and coffee. A sweet bittery finish, but not overwhelming.

The nose is imeadiately sweet, chocolate with coffee jupming out! The inviting smoothness of the malty velvet mouthfeel is extraordinary. Somewhere along the line oats do seems to poke through, but mostly the roasted taste permeates enjoyably. Amazing.

Tap in Brewdog. (£4+ for a third of a pint) Initial sip is v nice. But after that the alcohol just becomes overwhelming, killing any enjoyment. Bit of an ordeal trying to finish it... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

2/19/2009 6:57:22 AM Can in trade from BierKoning. Oil black body with rocky walnut head. Malty nose. Taste of chocolate, coffee, caramel and lots of other goodies. Amazing that this comes from a can!! A true delight.

C’est de l’huile à moteur qui se verse dans le verre, tellement la bière est noire et opaque. Cette "huile" est surmontée d’une mousse brune onctueuse et aérienne. Des arômes chocolatés, de grains rôtis et de tabac forment le bouquet lourd et décadent de la bière. Sensiblement les mêmes choses se retrouvent en bouche, le tout étant enrobé d’une belle chaleur alcoolisée et s’étalant dans une finale longue et amère. Du gros stock.

smells rich creamy and chocolatey, pitch black with no head, tastes as it smells with slight bitter bite to stop it becoming to cloying, a little too carbonated for a top mark but very good with no hint of its strength.

stevoj (3019) - Boise, Idaho, USA - SEP 2, 2015
Can from HomeBrewStuff. Black and inky, thick foamy dark tan head. Instant chocolaty aroma, smell the roast malt. Tons of bitterness in the flavor, lots of bite, lingers for quite some time. Alcohol warmth stays through from first taste to finish. Oily, slick and slippery. High quality brew.

MrHangover (3488) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - AUG 31, 2015
Can, 2012 vintage, thnx to bytemesis. Pours a deep black beer with a big beige head on top. Aroma had loads of roasted malts, touches of coffee, licorice and sweet caramel notes. Flavor is very sweet, loads of molasses and sweet caramel. Full bodied, nice carbonation. Awesome, nice complexity, long, bittersweet aftertaste. Awesome brew.

Lukasmh (636) - Aarhus, DENMARK - AUG 31, 2015
Can. Pours dense thick pitch black with lasting creamy tan head, crazy lacing. Aroma has quite some sweetness at first, s’mores and vanilla, fudge, yammy caramel and toffee. Then comes all the malty and rustiness. Milk chocolate, cocoa, some coffee and abundance of sweet oats and roast barely. Some burn sugar and burnt figs along sherry notes. Taste is more up front roasty and bitter. Dark chocolate, coffee, smooth oats, roast barley, bitter malts, hard roast, figs, vanilla. Goes from roasty to sweet milk chocolate to end out in roasty bitter finish. Slight salty and has some port and sherry sweetness, alså slight red mellow apple fruitiness. Body is super smooth oaty, and no sight of the abv. Very smooth and creamy, do suit the roast very well. This is good.
