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.

UPDATED: JUN 25, 2015 Blind RIS experiment [Sample 15 of 20, 4/30/2015] Poured by Summer. Near black, sexy dark brown mocha head, medium duration, some lacing at first, but it doesn’t last. Aroma: Rich. Chocolate and roast/char (need a code name for roast that makes me think of smoke / ash / char but still is actually in the roast category]. Smells nice, right down that line I seem to gravitate toward (on the rich and decadent side, with chocolate at forefront but still with solid dose of thick roastiness and just a touch of soy sauce so I think of slow roasted BBQ with just an undercurrent of coffee). Light marshmallow sweetness under there. Lots of lovely chocolate lasting in the finish of this one. Notably (and thankfully) missing: tin can and pie filling. I’m digging this one, oh yeah. Digging on it hard. Well-balanced taste. I’d guess this is on the 10%+ ABV side, but it doesn’t feel harsh in any way whatsoever. This one is really nice. Full body, good carbonation, smooth velvety texture. Great mouth-coating sweet smooth chocolate syrup that lingers long after the drink is done. Overall: Great. one of the best yet. There have been a few that are "down the middle and boring," but this is "balanced, down the middle, and fantastic."

RB Rating: 8/4/9/5/17.
Observation: It occurs to me my descriptions are getting weaker. Maybe losing steam / running into some imperial stout fatigue? Only 5 more to go. This one came at a good time, though.
Guess: Could be Narwhal. Could be Expy. Whatever it is, I want more.
Would pay: $4/bottle for a regular thing; $5 once in awhile. I sure as hell hope it’s easy to find so I can remain well-stocked.

(1/4/2013) Aroma of vanilla, chocolate, toffee, roasted grains and coffee. Pours motor oil black with small ring of tan head. Smooth, full bodied viscous mouthfeel. Mild bitterness balances the sweetness up front. Really quite nice. [8/4/8/5/17]

Bradzo dobry Imperial Stout bez udziwnien i beczkowych modyfikacji. Kawa, czekolada, dosc slodkie z palona goryczka i dosc niskim wysyceniem. Bardzo dobre.

Próbka na WFDP. Cudowny, klasyczny i agresywny RIS. W aromacie jest bardzo dobrze - czekolada, kawa, praliny, paloność. Trochę wiśni w czekoladzie. Ładna, drobnopęcherzykowa piana, barwa czarna. W smaku jest imperialnie - trochę alkoholu czuć, szczególnie przyjemne rozgrzewanie po przełyku. Ciemne słody na pierwszym planie. Bardziej w stronę kawy niż czekolady. Bardzo palone na finiszu. Świetne ciało, gęste i bardzo aksamitne. Wzorowo.

My 200th rating. Although I am openly not a big fan of Imperial stout, this one is nicely balanced. Friend talked to me about it around christmas. Had to try it. A good one.

Piana obfita trwala, zdobi szklo. Kolor czarny. Aromat paloność, mleczna czekolada, tofi. Smak, gorzka czekolada, palonosc, skontrowana likierową, pralinową slodycza, w tle przebija sie tofi, kawa, na finiszu przyjemnie graja drożdżowe estry. Goryczka wyraźna pasuje, alkohol ukryty. Wysmienite piwo szkoda że nie posiadam wersji po leżakowaniu w beczce. Bardzo dobre WOW.
