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.

UPDATED: JUN 2, 2009 Thick thick thick. Lots of chocolate flavor and smell. Dont spill this one because it will stain the hell out of a shirt! Definitely worth the mess though. I could drink this beer until I lay down and die. So good!

OliverG (276) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 28, 2009
UPDATED: NOV 5, 2010 Trs bonne imperial stout. Douce et chocolate en bouche, elle semble disparatre au palais, comme une barbe papa. En finale, on peroit davantage les notes dalcool et de houblon, mais elle reste toujours moelleuse et lgrement chocolate.

UPDATED: MAY 28, 2009 Pour is very thick.Looks like black,rit dye with a khaki head,that fades to a creamy ring. Big malty,roasted-burnt,espresso, aroma with alcohol ligering. Creamy,oily texture. Burnt malt,inky,flavors,with a quite,hoppy finish. Alcohol is present in mouth and finish in a stinging fashion.Falls apart a little quitckly.

12 oz can into a snifter. Pours a thick, rich, black, and completely opaque. 1/2 fingers of brown head, which settles quickly into a thin ring of foam, and an incomplete, oily island. Smells of molasses, roasted malts, coffee, anise infused sweetness, hints of dark fruits and alcohol. Quite excellent. With taste, "robust" is the first thing that comes to mind. Lots of what the nose made me expect; molasses sweetness, and roasty malts and coffee. Hints of alcohol bitterness builds as consumed. Moderately low carbonation. Thick and full....smooth....the way I want a RIS to feel. Overall, this is a fab slow sipper, and quite smooth and easy drinking considering its 10 % ABV ....Quite worthy of its high ratings. I (sadly) cant get this stuff around here, but it might be worth it to find a way to snag some more of this canned gem.

bigrond (1499) - factoryville, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 24, 2009
This was a very good stout. Almost a total blackness with little head at all. Dark and ink-like. Very similar to Old Rasputin. I enjoyed trying it and will most likely have it again.

HOPSHUNTER (742) - Tampa, Florida, USA - MAY 21, 2009
12oz can. Poured a thick, oily black with a 2 finger, dense, dark brown head. Malts and alcohol are the aggressors in the nose with some notes of coffee. Flavor is burnt somewhat astringent malts with a sharp alcohol bite. Very creamy/oily mouthfeel with soft carbonation. As the beer warms some bitter chocolate becomes more apparent. Finishes with a good dose of hops bitterness. Good.

Lothore (644) - California, USA - MAY 21, 2009
A- Pours a dark black hue letting very little light through. Deep reddish brown head which is absolutely decadent. S- Smell consists of roasted malt and coffee. A bit faint. T- Taste is predominately roasted malt, deep brown sugar notes, coffee. M- Thick with medium carbonation. D- This was a pretty tasty imperial stout. Not my favorite but it looks great and is very solid.

VikingHammer (506) - Lynnfield, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 20, 2009
Pours like motor oil with a small brown head. Aroma of chocolate, caramel and coffee. Overall a very solid RIS. Velvet mouth feel and full bodied.

SuIIy (1983) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - MAY 15, 2009
12 oz can. Pours a dark, thick oily black color with a small tan foamy head. Nose is chocolate malts with some dry bitter chocolate and a nice sweet hersheys note as well. kinda odd that all that contrasting odors is in there, but it is. Palate is thick and chewy with a nice mouth coating on the swallow. Flavors are chocolae with lots of roast dark malts and camp fire, smores kind of things going on.

acblue (91) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 14, 2009
Black with a creamy tan head; probably my favorite beer on looks alone. Somewhat light on aroma for the style; coffee and malt. Somehow sweet without a ton of chocolate in the flavor; molasses and coffee seem to be at the forefront.
