Roasty aromas, oaky, toasty, raw cocoa, some booze. Black with a lasting brown head. Dry, roasty, oaky, some whiskey. Full bodied. beerbaaron (1998) - Arizona, USA - MAY 2, 2014
Black. Great frothy brown head. Sweet. Caramel. Chocolate. Black roast. Dark chocolate roasty. Amazing aroma, delectably sweet. Light alcohol warmth. Great balance. Light woody. Not too sticky. Creamy. Full body. Light spicy. Light oaky dry. Great roastiness. I really enjoyed this. Gone before I knew it! tgncc (3132) - Bellmore, New York, USA - FEB 21, 2013
Not a bid departure from the standard Ten Fidy. Chocolatey, roasty in aroma and flavor. The flavor also had touches of vanilla, wood. Nice thick body. Roasty and sweet on finish. Excellent. Godofthecellar (677) - NYC, New York, USA - DEC 18, 2012
On tap pony UES, thanks Joey for the suggestion
5 oz poured jet black. Surprisingly not a strong smell, slight caramel malt and booze. Taste of roasted malt, oak, wood, and can def pick up the wild turkey, slight sweetness following through on the taste from the caramel aroma warm finish from the alcohol. Very nice brystmar (1314) - Dallas, Texas, USA - DEC 18, 2012
UPDATED: JAN 1, 2013 Labeled "Wild Turkey Aged Ten Fidy" on tap at the UES Pony Bar. Black as night, plenty of tan head with good retention. Aroma suffers from "stout on tap" syndrome in that what’s here is good but it’s pretty subtle. Shame. Caramely, perfectly roasted malts kick things off. Overall profile is rich and mature. Whiskey barrel character ironically curtails the boozy fire that stews towards the end, leaving a chocolatey, mildly boozy finish. Viscous body is mostly up to the task but has a touch too much carb for my preferences. Fixes many of my qualms with Ten Fidy (namely the booziness). A very good BA stout overall, but falls short of greatness.

Two words; oak, aged...... need I say more? an excellent fall/winter beer. jtclockwork (16597) - , New Jersey, USA - FEB 13, 2011
Growler thanks to Mikey. Pours tar black. Nose and taste of vanilla, rich chocolate, heavy charred bread, oak, and liquid raisins. Thick gooey body. EricE (1367) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 22, 2010
Draft at Max’s. Thick oily pour with a dark tan head. Raisins on the nose with cream, vanilla, oak and berries. Smooth raisin taste with roasted biscuit and chocolate. Sweet with bitter finish that lingers. ryan (3186) - Beltsville, Maryland, USA - OCT 16, 2010
big sweet nose, lots of sugars, chocolate, a bit of booze. Taste is very sweet, lightly bitter, lots of chocolate, coffee, roast and vanilla. Oak is light. A bit thin on the finish. Nothing special, but better than recent batches of 10 Fidy. scottw86 (1177) - Maryland, USA - OCT 14, 2010
UPDATED: OCT 15, 2010 Aroma of vanilla, chocolate. Taste smokey, with lots of wood and oak. Sweet and flavorful. Alcohol slightly noticeable. Finish is bitter and lingers with chocolate malts. I think I like the whiskey version a little more because it is more complex, but this is a solid brew.
