Can shared with Erzengel! A black beer with a huge most good lasting brown head. Aroma of roasted malt, bitter coffee, tobacco. Taste of dark roasted malt, coffee, burned malt, tobacco, bitter hops, citrus, really nice! KevinReddirt (248) - Midland, Texas, USA - OCT 6, 2017
UPDATED: OCT 17, 2017 Long sought after, long anticipated, I finally found a 4 pack of Ten FIDY at a divey liquor store in Santa Fe, NM. Dig the can, all black and silver. Pull the tab and pour into my Buffalo Bayou snifter. I deliver half, enjoy the view. Black as my accountant's heart and a glorious dark brown foam. I almost do not want to drink, too pretty. The smell, my gawd, charcoal, black licorice, dark plum. With Stone Temple Pilots in the background I sip. Maybe it has been awhile between imperial stouts but this is outstanding. There is dark chocolate, tobacco, cedar, raisin, heavy malt, a hint of brown sugar. Thick and chewy. Finishes with a moderate bitterness. So this beer makes it in the 100 beers to drink before you die but cannot break into the top 50 imperial stouts? Criminal. Three cans left, my friends are gonna love me. jjunghun2 (22) - - OCT 3, 2017
UPDATED: OCT 3, 2017 Tap at Tia pub. Tan head. Dark chocolate, roasted coffee. Nutty. A bit harsh for me. Bitter sweet stout. SimonBlok (922) - GRONINGEN, NETHERLANDS - OCT 2, 2017
35,5cl can at home. Appearance: pitchblack with pretty high, dark beige head Aroma: dark roasted malts, coffee, cacao and some soysauce. Taste: high sweetness and high bitterness. Notes of espresso coffee, coffee grounds, cacao, dark chocolate, dark roasted malts and a trace of salmiak and vegetables. Palate: medium to full bodied, oily texture and medium carbonation. ozzatoadisback (228) - ITALY - OCT 2, 2017
Pours black with about one finger of light brown head, decent retention and a bit of lacing. Very much intense but not too complex aroma of coffee and chocolate, with slightest fruitiness. Taste has roasted malts, strong caramel (or burnt caramel), again strong notes of coffee and chocolate and a good degree of bitterness in the finish. This is both very sweet and highly bitter, and overall balanced. Alcohol is well hidden. Dense bodied with low to medium carbonation, with a thick and dense mouthfeel. Overall this is very much your classic, bold american imperial stout, and an averagely good one at that.

RIS strong by its basic ingredients, this is what I like. Roast, bitterness, chocolate and only a hint of alcohol. A classic RIS I’d say. PlutonowyMan (925) - Baardegem, BELGIUM - SEP 16, 2017
Kolor czarny, smolisty, totalnie nieprzejrzysty. Piana brązowa, bardzo wysoka i trwała. Pozostawia sporo zdobień. Jeśli chodzi o wygląd to piwo prezentuje się wzorcowo.
Aromat wyśmienity, jest likierowo kawowy, słodki z owocowym kręgosłupem.
Smak to kolejna bomba. Wyśmienita paloność, gorzka, mocna kawa, trochę likieru kawowego i sporo ciemnych owoców. Goryczka wysoka i intensywna świetnie balansuje likierową słodycz.
Alkohol daje przyjemne rozgrzewania przełyku i ma tutaj szlachetny, likìerowy charakter.
Wysycenie średnie, pasuje. Piwo ma bardzo oleistą, tłustą, wręcz smolistą fakturę. Jest gładkie i jednocześnie miękkie.

Dark beige rocky head stayed on a jet black still body.
Malt, charcoal, coal, burnt embers & dark chocolate aroma.
Full bodied, oily, velvety & smooth.
The taste is amazing - burnt embers, dark chocolate, demerara, slightly smoked, sweet black coffee & dark spirits. Sissio (1812) - Orsenigo, ITALY - SEP 5, 2017

Can thanks to Wombat23. Pours black and viscous. The light brown head collapses into a thin, creamy layer. Aroma is a mix of ink, coffee, chocolate. Taste is bitter, almost acrid going into the finish. Body is light thick and heavy, carbonation is mild, alcohol is well disguised. Good, but not among my top Imp Stouts.
