Pours a rich black with a thick brown head. Aroma is cola, coffee, a little dried fruit. Flavor is roasted malt, velvety chocolate, cola, and coffee. Has a thick creamy mouthfeel. Very easy to drink for something so weighty. randy1301 (265) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - FEB 7, 2010

beautiful looking beer. chocolate, coffee...rich malts, a little hoppy at the end. can taste the alcohol, but not overbearing. near perfection. punkrkr27 (903) - Berkley, Michigan, USA - FEB 1, 2010
Black pour with a small tan head. Very roasty aroma with some hints of milk chocolate, black coffee and dark fruit. The flavor has a great dark roast, bitter coffee and dark chocolate character with delicious background notes of fig and plum. The body is creamy, oily and full with moderate carbonation and a faint alcohol warming. It finishes remarkably light for such a big and makes it scarily easy to drink.

UPDATED: NOV 14, 2013 This impy definitely puts me in mind of Bells Expedition in its massive body and flavor. Tons of bitter chocolate, coffee, toffee, figs, dates, plums, roast, and a dash of smoke are beautifully offset in the finish by some mightily citric hops. The creaminess is off the scale, and the finish is nearly endless.This sure as hell ain’t no session ale, in fact its about as definite a sipper as I’ve ever tasted. Ten W Fidy is absolutely the best nickname for this flavorful beast!

(can from Queen Liquor in Colorado Springs). Black color. Small brown head. Aroma of alcohol and light coffee/chocolate. Flavor of chocolate/cocoa and roasted coffee. Long duration. Light alcohol finish. Slick texture. Soft carbonation. Spare lacing. BarZigKin (511) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - JAN 28, 2010
12oz can from Whole Foods. Black, black, black. No light. All is lost. Minimal head formation. Intense aroma of heavily roasted coffee, espresso, semi-sweet chocolate, plums and light malt sweetness. Light, slick, oily mouthfeel with fine carbonation. Initial flavors of fresh coffee, roasted chocolate malts and balanced light sweetness. Secondary flavors of semi-sweet chocolate, slight sour and hint of vanilla. Complexity continues to evolve as the beer nears room temperature. Excellent bitter, lingering finish. I loves me some high quality craft in a can!! Rating #1000 for this beer :o) trailtate (3) - Houston, Texas, USA - JAN 28, 2010 does not count

12 oz can. Pours thick and black., headless. Tons of chocolate, malted milk and licorice in the aroma. Flavor is roasty malt and dark chocolate. A little heat in the finish, but nothing distracting. Slick and thick mouth feel with little carbonation. Insanely drinkable for the huge amount of flavor.
