COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

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.

What a gorgeous mother of a beer! Deep black hole dark - light has no hope of passing throught this beer. I’ve never imagined a beer that thick and dark. Nice dark tan head with a little lace, doesn’t 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 doesn’t 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 doen’s 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.

A black beer, a head is big, dense and dark brown. Aroma has strong liquirice, chocolate, sweetness of dried fruits, some coffee. Taste has liquirice, also salt liquirice, roastiness and coffee, hint of dried fruits. Balanced sweetness. Full bodied, smooth carbonation, not stickyness. Some warming in the throat. Intensive but also so easily to drink. Great beer.

Deserowa czekolada, kawa, troche pralin. Niesamowicie zbalansowane piwo, bardzo gladkie, likierowe. Fajna palona goryczka.

Bradzo dobry Imperial Stout bez udziwnien i beczkowych modyfikacji. Kawa, czekolada, dosc slodkie z palona goryczka i dosc niskim wysyceniem. Bardzo dobre.

Próbka na WFDP. Cudowny, klasyczny i agresywny RIS. W aromacie jest bardzo dobrze - czekolada, kawa, praliny, paloność. Trochę wiśni w czekoladzie. Ładna, drobnopęcherzykowa piana, barwa czarna. W smaku jest imperialnie - trochę alkoholu czuć, szczególnie przyjemne rozgrzewanie po przełyku. Ciemne słody na pierwszym planie. Bardziej w stronę kawy niż czekolady. Bardzo palone na finiszu. Świetne ciało, gęste i bardzo aksamitne. Wzorowo.

My 200th rating. Although I am openly not a big fan of Imperial stout, this one is nicely balanced. Friend talked to me about it around christmas. Had to try it. A good one.

Frisch vom Hahn auf der BGM 01 in Wroclaw getrunken. Tiefstes Schwarz mit beigem Schaum. Leider intensive Lakritznoten im Nachtrunk.
