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.

Aroma of smoke and smoldering sugar - actually reminds me of boiling maple syrup with my grandpa. Appearance is jet black with a very thin tan head. Out of the can I almost thought it was flat. Had to give it a very aggressive pour just to get some foam on top. Flavor of molasses, toffee, chocolate, coffee, apples, plums. So rich and intense, even right out of the fridge. Mellows and really turns into an impressive beer as it warms. Bravo once again Oskar Blues.

Very dark and rich. Smells like roasted chocolate/coffee and roasted malts. Leaves great after taste in the mouth and coats the glass very nice. Awesome stuff!

UPDATED: APR 27, 2009 Nice fat/thick brew, black as the night with a big creamy brown head and a big creamy ,smooth mouthfeel. Flavour is sweet and generous yet blanced by a big roasted bittersweet finish. Loads of caramell, roasted barley and toffe flavours.

This thing is going to age great. Absolute zero chance of sunlight. Poured milky black with brown head. Aroma of chocolate and coffee. Chocolate and caramel swirl with some roasted coffee.

UPDATED: APR 10, 2009 You wont believe the oily viscosity of this beer until you pour it from a can. It came out like syrup! A thin cinnamon colored head on top of a pitch black motor oil body. Very good looking stout. Aroma is coffee and oats with some chocolate as well. IBUs hide unbelievably well inside the thick sweet maltiness. Flavor is some chocolate with again coffee and a thick malty sweetness. A must try!

UPDATED: MAY 31, 2015 This is my favorite non barrel aged imperial stout to date. Also oskar blues shows that a canned beer can be great beer. Delicious flavor and aroma with a jet black pour and dark brown head.

Pours Black with nice thick head. Aroma - chocolate, roasted malts. Taste - Big sweet chocolate maltiness with some hops at the end to help offset the sweetness. Mouthfeel - Thick, rich, creamy. Overall - Its a great beer but I could only drink one of them b/c its a little too sweet. But still very good.

beernbourbon (1580) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - APR 5, 2009
This looks scary comming out of the can. Thick, total black with a rich dense brown head. It looks amazing. The scent is chocolate, coffee, sweetness, and malt. Flavor is great, its thick, oily, and chewy. Flavor is chocolate, roasted malt, coffee, and a nice subtle hop finish. Great stuff.

Syd (921) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 4, 2009
Can pours thick, and I had to ratchet up the pour to see any head, but what did appear was the brownest head Ive ever seen. The aroma is roasted and dark chocolate. The flavor is wow, like a dark chocolate malt with some coffee notes to bitter. The hops are there, but with such a massive sweet profile, it only serves as a balancing act. The palate is shake like. Im tempted to hold the glass upside down to see if it stays in (OK, not really). Awesome.

My friends and I refer to this as "motor oil." Its jet black, has a lot of personality, and is full of malty chocolate and hops. Im almost always in the mood for one of these.
