UPDATED: NOV 9, 2009 12 oz can! Okay, Ten Fidy may not be the very best imperial stout, but why do I like it so much? Its black. No, I don’t mean black like the other imperial stouts, I mean opaque, with a very brown persistent head. The finish is dark roasted malt. Ten Fidy is to imperial stout what French Roast is to coffee. Good stuff. DeadGirl (478) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 7, 2009
Pours opaque black with a tan creamy head from the can at Redlight Redlight: It’s like seven layer chocolate cake meets vanilla meets alcohol (presence hidden not so much). Overall: Solid- Big, Black, and Thick. Intense mouthfeel. Rebuy: Yeah. #188 on 07112009, DG. ChrisThomson (522) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 7, 2009
Can. Thanks to Dan for this one. Pours black with thick tan head. Aroma is coffee. Taste of more coffee, very fruity, with notes of nuts and vanilla. Finish very smooth. zvikar (6465) - Ramat Gan, ISRAEL - NOV 1, 2009
@ a tasting, thanx David,pour black and opaque with a dark chocolate color head, aroma of raisins, nuts, chocolate and cherry liquor, flavor of coffee, nice roast, nutty bitterness and nice acidity, bitter towards the end, zesty and tasty, almost full-bodied, great stuff. cmonster (1000) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 31, 2009
UPDATED: DEC 2, 2009 12 oz can served in a snifter. Served cold but still leaves an impressive milk chocolate brown head on top of the rich oil-like body. Aroma = Roasted. Slightly cola, even some ripe honeydew melon. Seriously, have a sniff. Full body... I mean FULL. Slick, thick, and creamy. Stout fans cometh. I’ve been waiting to try this brew for some time: The wait was worthwhile.

Can pours black with a turbulent dark brown head. Aroma is heavy in robust coffee, roasted malt, and chocolate with underlying notes of licorice and orange peel. Flavor is big and roasted with some tobacco in the finish. This beer definately goes for aggressiveness over complexity, but who says that’s a bad thing. A highly enjoyable imp that’s found it’s way to a permanent spot in my refrigerator. drseusszb200 (687) - Florida, USA - OCT 30, 2009
POURED LIKE BLACK SYRUP. POURED VERY AGGRESSIVELY AND HARDLY ANY TAN HEAD. SMELLED LIKE SWEET AND FRUITTY.TASTED SWEET TO START A LITTLE BITTER TOWARD THE END WITH A NICE BITTER AFTER TASTE. ALSO A LITTLE ALCOHOL AT THE END. j12601 (13138) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - OCT 29, 2009
Can. Pours a viscous jet black, and coming from the can, does look like motor oil. Thick dense chocolate head which falls off steadily. Fruit – with a big pineapple and mango tone interestingly enough, chocolate, roast, vanilla. Smooth, medium bodied, hides the abv remarkably well. Devils foodcake and chocolate pudding on the finish. Really tasty. tomer (3751) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - OCT 29, 2009
At a tasting, many thanks David, oily pour, almost no head, opaque very extremely dark brown colour, flavours of coffe, nuts, dried fruits, flavours of medium roasted coffee, porcini mushrooms, toasted brea,d brown sugar and hints of tobbaco. Big bodied and very sweet but still very good. ruffhauser (29) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 27, 2009
Had the 10:50 all over the place, most recently on tap at Uber. Pours black as night and out of a can, just like motor oil.
