Pours black like motor oil. Brown/tan head that dissipates rather quickly. Hints of bourbon, roasted malt and prunes can be detected. Very silky on the tonue.

Had back in 2013 - the may have overdone the bourbon that time. Instead of an extra note it kind of took over the beer and you missed the rest. Tap

Fritz123 (1535) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - DEC 7, 2014
Tasted at Aces and Ales in Las Vegas. Pours a jet black, thick used motor oil with a luscious mocha head. Aroma is strong with caramel, vanilla, dark chocolate, cocoa nibs, prunes, and roasted nuts. The taste is just as good with the deep chocolate notes first and then the vanilla, caramel, toffee, and roasted goodness. Serious thick mouth and an almost syrup like consistency. Slight booze on the finish, but very well balanced with flavors overall.

wedgie9 (2664) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 27, 2014
Tasted on 9/27/14 from a crowler, big thanks to Churnandburn. Pours almost completely black with an average brown head that slowly recedes to an average collar. The nose is nice nutty maple and toffee bourbon with a ton of dark roasted coffee, and some dark chocolate. The flavor is really nicely balanced and the same with some milk chocolate brownie added. The body is very full with just above average carbonation and a long nicely roasted, ton of nutty bourbon finish.

djd07 (12607) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUN 21, 2014
Growler thanks to Brian. Pours a dark brown with no head. The aroma is strong bourbon, oak, wood, and dark fruits. Medium mouthfeel with strong booze, dark chocolate, light bitterness, really enjoyed this one.

On tap at Flying Saucer Sugar Land a couple days ago during an Oskar Blues Tap Takeover. Have been wanting to try this for quite some time. Was not disappointed! This has the same nose and taste as the regular Ten Fidy - chocolate, coffee and chocolate - while adding whiskey and wood. Fortunately, the whiskey adds to the complexity of this brew without overwhelming the base beer. A hi-quality brew here. Mouthfeel was thick and coating. Should have ordered a second glass as it was blown a little later that evening.

On tap, pours black with a brown hue with a thick tan head that leaves great lacing. Smells of oak bourbon, vanilla, chocolate, roasted malt and caramel. Tastes of the same things in the smell. Mouthfeel is thick, silky and creamy with good carbonation. The original Ten Fidy is great on itís own, ageing it in a whiskey barrel makes it even better. Probably one of the best barrel aged stouts Iíve had. Right up there with Bourbon County and The Abyss. Too bad itís only available on draft. I would love to see what some more age would do to it.

48FanInCali (848) - California, USA - APR 2, 2014
Crowler. Pitch black pour with small mocha head. Nose mainly of roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, and a little booze. Taste follows the nose with more coffee. Barrel is subtle but it is present. Good but doesnít knock your socks off.

after4ever (7729) - Brier, Washington, USA - MAR 26, 2014
Draft at sb. Pours jet black with a dense and creamy dark tan head. Big sweet chocolate and apricot nose. Very sugary. Sticky thick goopy body. Chocolate and apricot mid palate. Heavy and sweet but very nice. Long finish.

Tejas (994) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAR 19, 2014
Draught > Common Table. Pretty f'ing good. Not too boozy. You can actually taste some of the beer flavors and not just whiskey. Pretty much like a roasty vanilla bean slightly boozy beer that is an easy drinker at almost 11%. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
