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.

Kestral (506) - rnes, NORWAY - JAN 13, 2010
Pours black with a tiny dark brown head that quickly fades to a ring. Aroma is very sweet, loads of chocolate, earthy hops and citric, prunes. A sip reveals more aromas, nuts, prunes, almost bock like caramel or fudge, sweet citrus, more tangerine than lemon, and a burnt bitter finish. Quite viscous, not a lot of carb, but enough to make the body thick. Overall this is a very balanced IS. Not too sweet, not too big, no alcohol evident, but perhaps also a bit restrained.

Can courtesy of smellysell, although I recently saw it for sale here. Regardless, thanks. Looks very badass being poured out of the can. One of the darkest beers Ive ever seen, with a coffee-colored head. Smell is some coffee, roast malts, smoky. A very smoky scent to it. Taste is very, very, very good. Same as the smell. Nice and creamy mouthfeel. Does seem to hit hard with the ABV. One of the best stouts Ive had.

12 ounce can purchased at Total Wine Pembroke Pines, FL for $4.49 Excellent!

larsga (7497) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 12, 2010
Medium dark brown, almost black, head. As far as I can tell in this dark pub the body is entirely opaque black. Milky roasty alcoholic toffee aroma with spicy minty notes. Bittersweet milky roasty chocolatey taste with alcoholic licorice notes. Full-bodied. Sharpish, hot mouthfeel. Surprisingly harmonic, even if it is very powerful. Dry chocolatey tropical fruit hop aftertaste with metallic notes. Nice. Quite drinkable, and definitely sippable. (0.355l can, Hndtverkerstuene, Oslo.)

hershiser2 (2859) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JAN 10, 2010
Can, $3.10 from Wine Warehouse, Charlottesville. Pours into a thick, black pool of used-motor-oil looking deliciousness. Small head. Smells of sweet malts, chocolates, cherries, bourbon, alcohol... Dark chocolate flavor, thick dark chocolate, light alcohol notes... like a cordial cherry without the cherry flavor.

gorditoabd (636) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 9, 2010
12 oz can. Pours black with just a touch of tan head. Aroma is of booze, cherries, anise, and coffee. First taste by far surpasses the aroma. Full of coffee, chocolate, cocoa powder, light cherries, vanilla, and touch of anise. Nice boozy burn on the finish, with just a touch of cough drop... Excellent. Thanks for the recommend MrBunn

"Ive had some Ten Fidy a couple times before, but thanks to slowrunner I was recently able to hunker down with a whole can all to myself. It was the 2nd craft can of the evening, which coincidentally was the 1st snowfall of this winter season. Midnight black pour, thin brown head and lots of spotty lacing. It was poured into my Chimay chalice and looked very good. Rich, abundant aroma of dark and hearty malts, toasted nuts, buttery toast and cocoa. Velvety smooth, very soft and rich. Sweet with a nice bitter push. Creamy chocolate, rich fudge and buttery cookie flavors coupled with coffee and cream. Aftertaste lends to mild red wine and chocolate covered cherries. Canned on 12/22/08 so just about a year of rest for this magnificent stout."

madmitch76 (24293) - , Essex, ENGLAND - JAN 9, 2010
16th September 2008. Imperial stout in a can! Opaque black beer. Silky smooth with a repressed coffee start and a clear and distinct sweet fruit note of blueberry and blackcurrant. Warming semi dry finish with a little toasted malt in the aftertaste. Goes down very well indeed!

spkldhenlvr24 (517) - Newburgh/Buffalo, New York, USA - JAN 7, 2010
Can from Village Beer Merchant in Buffalo. Pours an opaque black body with a short lived medium sized brown head. Some light lacing. Aroma is sweet candy, chocolate, booze, wine, and some roasted malts. Flavor is mocha, vanilla, slight coffee with sweet malts. A bit cloying sweet caramel finish. Super smooth, full bodied. Alcohol is noticable but not overbearing. Another really good canned beer from OB.

Can (Sept 2009). Black and thick with a dark ominous looking brown head. Rich roasted almost burnt malts with a somewhat understated chocolate and coffee flavor.
