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.

UPDATED: MAY 1, 2010 Can. A black, oily (sic) pour leaves a small, tan head on top. Licorice, cardboard hints, burnt malts, coffee, tar and molasses on the nose. The flavor is pretty much the same, all things dark. The cardboard from the aroma is gone though. Roasted-bitter finish. Full-bodied, oily and with some warmth. Dangerously easy drinkable, tasteful as hell and really good looking. Yet another Oskar Blues beer to bust the myth that canned beer sucks. Rating: 8-5-8-4-16-4.1. 091016

Can, at Patricks Pub. Looking lovely in the glass, with its black body under a tan, finger-thick head slowly reducing to a layer of bubbles that leaves lacings. Quite oily pour. Licorice, dark chocolate notes, mocha and alcohol on the nose. The flavor has a good warming alcohol and licorice, hints of tar, mocha and dark chocolate, and a good sweetness even though its quite dry. Full-bodied. The alcohol is maybe a bit too present in the finish, else its a gorgeous beer indeed. 091211

Can from 2008. Seriously, this beer in a fucking can? Aged? I expected good, because I dont live under a stout rock. I didnt expect THIS good. Nose is a rich darkness. Vanilla. Mouthfull is sublime. Velvet thickness. Creamy goodness. Yum yum YUM. Thanks Mike.

Can from BelgianBeerGal...thanks Amy! - This stuff pours pure black with next to no head. The smell is wonderful, with whiskey, soy sauce, dark chocolate, and raisins, without much heat or sharpness. The taste is more whiskey sweetness, a touch of toffee, and tons of roasty flavors. Theres some bitter roast and lots of coffee on the finish. This is one of those beers that warms going down the throat and into the belly. Plus, its so thick that it feels like it coats as it goes down, but in a good way. Just fantastic.

Completely opaque with the head the color of a Hersheys bar. Nice chocolate malt aroma. and the taste is exactly what i had smelt just moments before. The finish left me with, amazingly enough, more chocolate. Only this had almost a woody tone to it. Great beer to cap a meal.

Dark, thick pour that is pure black and giggles in the glass. Very sweet, malty aroma with small hints of brandy. Strong malt flavors that include roasted oats and chocolate mocha tones, really great beer.

Draught @ Mr. Dunderbaks, Tampa, FL: Apparently this is supposed to be rare on tap, although I had two opportunities to have it in the same night at two different places. Not that Im complaining, its a (spoiler!) great beer. Pours black, a dark brown head that left quickly. The aroma is a little muted but provided brandy, roast malts and molasses if you searched enough. The flavour is initially very strong with lots of sweet black cherries, brandy, anise, molasses and roasty malts. Just wow, an exceptional imperial stout that hadnt previously been on my radar. Count me as a fan of Ten W Fidy.

Shakesbeere (219) - Oxford, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 16, 2010
12 oz. can. Very dark and opaque pour -- probably the darkest Ive ever seen -- with dark tan head. Aroma is of sweet caramel and coffee, dark malt, and dark fruit -- i.e. prune. Very smooth and thick. Flavor has hints of dark chocolate, deep caramel nut, and a little citrus pine. Feels alcoholic. Finish is burnt. A very good brew, though its finest characteristic is its appearance.

Draft at redlight redlight. Pours black and opaque with a tan head. Probably the thickest, darkest beer Ive ever seen. Almost looks like carbonated motor oil. The nose is pungent with dark malts and hints of oatmeal. The flavor is a balance of smooth and tasty but with a noticeable bite from the high alcohol content. Sweet but also boozy. Very good beer.
