COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This titanic, immensely viscous stout is loaded with inimitable flavors of chocolate-covered caramel and coffee and hide a hefty 98 IBUs underneath the smooth blanket of malt.

Ten FIDY is the ultimate celebration of dark malts and boundary-stretching beer.

This was without a doubt, the best beer I have ever drank from a can! Once you look past the aluminum packaging, you find that Oskar Blues Ten FIDY is a fantastic imperial stout. Deep brown / lack in color with a beautifully explosive chocolate head. The flavor is full of coffee, chocolate and raising. The finish is thick and filling. Bonus points for an aluminum can!

One of the few out of region brews that we are lucky enough to have in the Pittsburgh area. Appearance is a very dark and viscous looking brew. Carbonation was not present when opening the can, but managed to pour it into a small head anyway that gave way to a crown with decent lacing. Nose is a lot of chocolate up front, toffee, caramel, and cream. Very nice in hiding the alcohol. Taste is pretty good, disguising the alcohol well but surprisngly not very bold. The same tastes are what was present in the scents. Mouth is great, pretty heavy in body and light in carbonation. Drinkability is good as I would have this again, and its novel to have a high quality brew in a can, however for your Russian imperial stouts, I may shop around a bit.

Can. Pours a deep black with a gorgeous thick brown head that lingers. Aroma of malt, coffee, wood, dark fruits. Taste of malt, lots of coffee and dark chocolate, brown sugar, and wood. Lingering sharp coffee/malt flavors. Very nice.

Pours a thick deep black color. Viscous pour, almost like it would coat the side of the glass. Aroma was pretty boozy, but had some nice roasted malt coffee, chocolate odors. Flavor was also fairly boozy, but not unpleasantly so. Good balance. Nice imperial stout.

12oz can obtained at The Liquor Shoppe in Tygsboro, MA. Pours a completely opaque black with a half inch of short-lived tan head. Roasty dark chocolate, coffee, toast, date, hints of nut, brown sugar, toffee; the slightest hint of alcohol toward the end. Toast, dark chocolate, coffee, and toffee hit the palate right away, with some brown sugar, burnt, dark roasted coffee, toffee nut, and date, along with just the slightest tinge of alcohol warming dominate the exceptionally long finish for this beer. Rich full mouthfeel without being too viscous or syrupy, with light to medium carbonation. While this is definitely a sipper (true to style), one sip most definitely invites another one due to the complexity and tastiness. I am literally floored by this beer. It more than lives up to the hype. Possibly the best RIS I have ever had the pleasure of drinking, this beer is practically perfect in every way. and in a can to boot! Absolutely stellar.

Huge roasted malt flavors dominate, along with chocolate and nicely balanced sweet/bittterness. However it is pretty boozy, both in the aroma and the flavor.

A wicked good beah! This beer has the best appearance of any beer I have tried; pitch black with a dark nicely formed head. It smells like brownies and tastes like dark chocolate-covered espresso beans. There is a slight undertone that iI cant put my finger on; slightly metalic tasting, perhaps from the can? Either way I enjoy the fact that someone has finally canned a truely great beer. Id love to try it from a whiskey barrel.

The darkest, thickest beer Ive ever had! This pours like motor oil and is BLACK. You cannot see any light through this pint! The flavor is chocolatey, malty goodness! One of the best beers Ive ever had! if you can find it, drink it!

This beer is amazing. It pours like oil out of the can and smacks you in the face with a high alcohol smell. Surprisingly well balanced and easy to drink...for what it is.
