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.

Its shocking to see such a dark liquid to come from a can. Nearly no head. And what is there dies to ring of bubbles on the edge. Virtually spotless lace. Near black, no lace. Mild black patent malt aromas. Not as potent as I expected. The flavor is an improvement on the smell. Oily body of a high-alcohol beer. Black patent malt flavors with notes of cherry and strawberry. Some hoppiness is present. Overall, this is a syrupy and malty beer where the bitterness comes from the burnt grains.

Beardface (1517) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - MAY 1, 2009
12 oz can from By the Bottle in Vancouver, WA. I had been looking forward to trying this one for a very long time and it was well worth the wait! Poured out black as the night with a thick oatmeal brown head that lasted for ages. Aroma is full of caramel malts, chocolate, coffee and the flavor is much the same, just malty and extremely delicious. Goes down smooth as silk as well. Amazing beer.

12oz can - Poured a viscous, oily black, very little carbonation, small head. Roasted marshmallow nose. Good flavor, but truly lacking the layers of a Stone IRS. The can was a change.

This is a huge brew, not for a can, just in general. Aroma is roasty, coffee, cocoa and nice hops. Very big, alcohol is noticable. Taste has some bitterness from hops and some from dark roasted malts. rich body and really good.

ChazMania (669) - Oceanside, California, USA - APR 28, 2009
Canned into RIS style glass. As the moniker notes, it is as thick as Penzoil. I had 2 of these, one was really good and complex with all the great descriptions noted of chocolate, malt, coffee. The second can was bad, really flat and bitter in a not-good way. I have one more can, and will rerate accordingly after I open it. I was say the first can was a 4.2 and the second one was a 1.5.

Out of the can at Leons. Poured a thick, syrupy jet-black with a skim of a brown head that dissipated quickly and left little lacing. Aroma is a strong malty-choclate-toffee-coffee that hits the nose immdiately. The 9.4% ABV works its way into the nose at mid-glass. Mouthfeel is thick (too much for my liking) and syrupy. Taste, while reflecting the scents found in the nose, is somewhat overwhelmed by the syrupy sweetness. Finish is long, but somewhat like glue stuck inside your mouth. Summary, while I can taste the quality, I just cant get as fired up as most for this carbonated chocolate syrup.

Pours like solid black silk into the glass. A big, thick, and dense dark brown head forms. The head remains, leaving behind rings of lacing. This beer smells subtly complex. Aromas of rich roasted malts and caramel can be gathered. Its heavy on the palate, coating with a soft creamy and full bodied mouthfeel. Tastes of sweet caramel, deep roasted malts, and of course, dark chocolate. A beautiful beer. And it came from a can?!

BgThang (126) - Texas, USA - APR 26, 2009
This stuff pours a solid black like 10w40 out of an old oil can :D The nose is that of roast, chocolate, smoke, raisins, hints of alcohol. mouthfeel is real creamy, roasted chocolaty, silky smooth. Drinkability is very nice could do a few of these but with 10.5 abv I would be drunk. The alcohol is very well hidden. I cannot wait for this to come to texas. Thanks to tprokop7 for the one can.

CapnCascade (116) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 25, 2009
Im quite certain that this is the best beer Ill ever have out of a can (itself courtesy of mgermani), and I say that with deep reverence for this is a fine beer. Pours black, huge brown head with good retention and some lacing. Aromas of chocolate, resinous alcohol, toasted malt, and coconut. Flavour develops more coconut, sweet mash, resin, and dates. Thick, syrupy mouthfeel with little carbonation (but not unpleasant) and plenty of boozy warmth.

Outstanding stout from the frothy near brown head on the pour, to the dark cocoa earthiness of the aroma, to the medium roast malt body and light bitter finish of the flavor, and the luscious creamy full palate of this dark and sweet offering. Well balanced in all aspects with a slight favoring toward the sweeter side due to such a prominent dark chocolate presence. The viscosity in my opinion, along with the cocoa is what really makes this one special. Thanks Oskar Blues. 2008 12oz.
