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.

Canned 1/03/13 "One til November?" Appearance: As youd expect, the beer is pitch black with a pretty small head. The head is a dark brown, and the lacing is poor. Nothing out of the ordinary for an Imperial Stout, but its still very good looking. Smell: Probably my favorite part about this beer. I love the milk chocolate aromas I get, as well as the woodiness. I dont get any sort of coffee note from Ten Fidy like a lot of people seem to get. However, I do get plenty of sweetness and dark fruit aromas. Taste: Super sweet with dark fruits up front, and the finish is almost equally as sweet with some smokey tasting malts in there. I was expecting SOME amount of bitterness in this beer, but I actually find it to almost be cloyingly sweet. Keep in mind I havent had many ISs (maybe three or four), but this one seems to be the sweetest that Ive had. Once the beer warms up a little bit, the sweetness dominates even more. The smell turns much more heavily to sweet, dark fruit, and the taste does the same... cherries come out a LOT once the beer warms up a lot. Feel: Along with the smell, the feel is among the best parts of this beer. As to be expected, super thick, coats the mouth wonderfully, and just smooth as all hell. The best thing about the feel though is that it never feels syrupy despite the thickness. Overall, Ten Fidy is a good beer ... when its colder. Given its ABV AND the fact that its a big Imperial Stout, itd be hard to drink this one quickly. I find Ten Fidy to be much more enjoyable when its colder, as it gets much too sweet when it warms up, and the roasty tastes seem to go way in the background to the super sweetness. Id definitely try this one again, but $4 for a can and about $15 for a six-pack is a bit too high for a guy that doesnt particularly love RISs for the most part. Definitely try Ten Fidy and decide for yourself. While I certainly think this beer is better than a 15/20 overall, it was the most accurate way I could get my final score to be a solid 4.

Prbka 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, szczeglnie 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.

Ok even een uitzondering om op maandag niet te drinken, maar h het is een feestdag, dus dan mag het. Uit blik, bij de bierkoning vandaan, schenkt mooi dik stroperig/olie zwart met enorme volle, fijne en mooie kraag. Aroma van gerooster en gebrande mouten, chocolade, cacao, vanille, koffie, wat lactose. Smaken zijn behoorlijk dik, koffie, mocca, lactose, melkchocolade, ggeroosterde en gebrande mout en koffie, redelijk zoet, matig geroosterd bitter, licht droog in de afdronk, mooie dikke stevige geroosterde stout, prima, volle body, erg goed. Nu ben ik wel erg benieuwd naar de bourbon variant als deze al zo goed is.

Kita (2116) - Koper, SLOVENIA - MAY 16, 2017
Can, 0.355l. Pours pitch black color with large creamy brown foam and lively visible carbonation. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, nuts, licorice and grass. Taste starts with medium sweet roasted malt, chocolate and licorice, follows by smooth oatmeal with grassy and fruity undertones, mouthfeel is warming alcoholic, while finish is heavy bitter. Full body, creamy texture and average carbonation in palate. Poisonously good...

Aromas of roasted coffee, chocolate, dried plum and molasses. Hops just provide a generalized bitterness. Color is black with an averaged sized light brown head. Taste is moderately sweet and moderately to heavily bitter. Body is full; texture creamy; finish long with roasted coffee and bitterness; the high alcohol level (10.5%) is fairly well disguised. Overall this is an excellent imperial stout with a very enjoyable variety of aromas and a very good palate.
