COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ten FIDY Imperial Stout This titanic, immensely viscous stout is loaded with inimitable flavors of chocolate-covered caramel and coffee and hide a hefty 65 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.

Can compliments of Sammy, this has been sitting around for much too damn long! The beer pours like motor oil with a deep black color. The head is minimal but brown and the carbonation (so far as I can tell) is mild to say the least. The aroma is plum chocolate raisin, some maple syrup and some mild hop character. The flavor is complex and awesome The beer immediately sets its self out form the RIS crowd by being remarkably fruity not just to style but pretty damn fruity in general. There are other flavors more commonly found in the style like Whiskey, chocolate, anise, and coffee. However it finishes with a light bready character! Man this is well balanced. I couldnt have possibly asked for more from the palate, it was slick and full, enormously viscous, but smooth. What a wonderful beer.

This is what an Imperial Stout should look like! So dark that its black liquid with a massive head of chocolate colored foam, produced from a medium pour. Amazing retention and great lacing. Big chocolate and coffee notes mixing with sweet maltiness make this one truly inviting nose. Mild woody notes and a slight hoppiness. Hints of leather and caramel. Lots of dark chocolate flavor combines with dark roasted coffee beans. Bite of liquorice. Taste/smoothness of oatmeal. Leather shows up in the taste, also. Hint of vanilla and some charred oak. Slight hoppy bite at the end. Big, thick and oily in the mouth. As an Imperial Stout should be. Excellent. This is an excellent brew. Im slowly getting turned around to the idea of canned beers being okay, not an abomination. If more breweries would produce canned beers on the quality level that Oscar Blues does, Id have no problem with cans. Man, I could drink these all night long! Damn, I love a good stout.

Can, over a year old. Courtesy of either beerbill or dchmela. Thanks! Pours thick like motor oil. Completely black opaque, with a very thin quickly dissipated dense deep brown head. Nose is dark and roasty, and maybe a tiny bit smoky? Theres some definite hop scent there as well, though its a bit faint, or at least masked by the big malt front. In the mouth, very thick, very complex. Nicely bitter, finishes with plenty of flowery hops on the tongue. Maltswise, its got plenty of chalky roasted malts notes. Some vague hints of dark chocolate, and maybe just a touch of the smoke that was in the nose? Its just barely there, but you can detect just a touch of alcohol warmth at the end. Thick, oily, creamy, dense, with low but punctual carbonation. Very complex beer, yet still pretty drinkable. Very enjoyable.

Discount Liquor Milwaukee, Wi. 4pk cans $9.99. (11/13/09) Very dark to black in color. Chocolate nose. Taste chocolate at first, then coffee, followed by sweetness, with a bitter finish. Very tasty, I would buy again.

( 12oz can) pours blackest black with excellent lasting dark tan head and great coating of the glass. Nose is brownies, milk chocolate. Taste is sweet milk chocolate, cocoa and mildly bittering roasted hops. Finishes very creamy and roasty. As it warms the roasted coffee element becomes more apparent. This is a damn fine beer.

Can, yes yes yes yes yes!!! I finally got this beer, it only took 4 years to find it. 2009 can, pours a solid death black beer with whopping fluffhead tan. Aroma is pure chocolate and sweetness, hint of the high alcohol. Flavor is a complex malty icecream chocolate bitterness coffee explosion with a bite of the hops in the dryness of the finish. The body is medium to very thick. IF you like impy stouts, this is one to try. I am so glad I found this beer, thanks for making more of it this year OB. Kick ass!!!!

UPDATED: NOV 18, 2009 An inky black beer that glistens as it pours. This is my blackest stout, as it is deep black. The aroma was heavy on dark fruits, with a tarry scent from the high roastiness I assume. The taste was charred roastiness with some more tar & dark fruits & a silky mouthfeel. There is just something about an Imp. Stout in a can that fascinates me & makes me like this beer more. A black beer called Ten Fidy, Hmm I wonder what that means.

oh my lord this is so thick- tons of grapes, caramel, smoky black pumpernickel bread, roasted malts, so balanced and very simple and direct. Not too complex, but fantastic. Alcohol flavor is very thin. On tap at Abraxas Lounge, Miami Beach.
