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.

Cant rate the appearance because the can is not clear, duh. OK, pours opaque black with minimal head. Dark tan head that recedes quickly. Aroma is a strange marriage of chocolate and hops. Dark fruits present. Flavor very chocolaty. Strong, bitter finish from the hops. Kind of a strange hop dance in the middle. I doubt the 98 IBU claim. The hops blend much too well in this beer to be that high. Not as thick as moist RIS, but still considered heavy. Carbonation a little prickly. Overall, a great imp. I hate hops in my stout, but this is the only hoppy stout that strikes a great balance.

GoBlue (104) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - NOV 30, 2009
Deep black with very thin brown head. Rich malty aroma with roast and chocolate. Full bodied flavor of coffee, mocha, bitter chocolate and toffee. Slight alcohol warmth and long finish

GrungyBob (62) - Kettering, Ohio, USA - NOV 30, 2009
I cant believe this beer came in a can. pours like used motor oil with thick brown head. Roma Strong smokey sweetness and black licorice. Burnt sugar. Flavor just like the aroma sweetness with lots of booze that tingles the tongue finishes with smokiness. Its like a taste of old strong cold coffee - just lingers and lingers. Why cant we get this beer in Ohio

Can at Akkurat, Stockholm. Pours black with a big dark brown head. Aroma of chocolate, malt and a hint of smoke. Taste of chocolate, coffe, malt sweetness and some alcohol. Not very imperial...

hirigalzkar (3044) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - NOV 29, 2009
Can. Black with very dark head. This stout has got a little of everything. Vanilla, chocolate, vinous alcohol, some smoke and bitter chocolate in the aftertaste.

FunkyBrewster (1518) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 28, 2009
Thanks 17th floor! Pours a deep black with a small dark tan froth. Aroma is super rich chocolate, malted milk balls, dark cocoa, chocolate syrup, a whole lot of sweet sweet cocoa, oh and just a bit of coffee. Flavor starts with a rich deep chocolate malt, some soy biting in on the tongue. Remains sweet, malty and rich but never really builds upon it through the finish where it has a light hop push and fades with a bitter chocolate note. Medium to full body and a soft carbonation. Great aroma, okay flavor, could be a really good beer.

drowland (8127) - Georgia, USA - NOV 26, 2009
Can. Subtle aroma with some sweet and a hint of roast. Huge chocolate on this bad boy with some coffee undertones and a subtle hint of sour complexity. Goes down smooth and easy.

drpimento (3366) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 25, 2009
BAM! Big beer in yer face n down yer gullet! Served with a nice fine foamy, frothy tan head and good lace. Color is an opaque brownish black. Aroma is very malty, roasty, burned sugar, dark ripe fruits, and a bit of chocolate. Flavors the same but way more intense. Theres a sharp blast of bittersweetness upon first sip. Body is full, rich, and like very ripe fruit. Excellent carbonation too. Boozy at the end. Ok for a long slow sipping session. Careful though!

This beer pours black with a large dark tan head leaving a little lacing down the sides. The aroma is dark chocolate slightly roasted coffee and something else I cannot put my finger on. The flavors are dark chocolate and roasted coffee. What an excellent beer! Cheerw!
