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.

Alextricity (509) - Michigan, USA - MAR 26, 2013
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.

SebBrews (120) - Bucharest, ROMANIA - MAR 21, 2017
Pitch black pour with a thick, medium lasting espresso head. Loads of moderately roasted malts in the nose, plus dark coffee, hazelnuts and chocolate. Taste is delicately bitter to sweet roasted malts. Hints of soy sauce, coffee beans . Some hops underneath these flavors. Lingering alcoholic and malty aftertaste. Very creamy and oily texture, full bodied, low carbonation. Surprisingly well-rounded imperial stout with a low bitterness and absence of ashy or burnt flavors that make it very sessionable despite its high ABV.

UPDATED: MAR 22, 2017 puszka 355ml , data zapuszkowania: 13.10.2016r.
Wygląd: Barwa czarna, piwo nie przejrzyste. Piana średnio obfita, drobno pęcherzykowa, ładnie koronkująca
Aromat: Bardzo intensywny, głęboki i słodki. Wyczuć można potężne nuty palone, dużo gorzkiej czekolady, kawy, nieco śliwek i kwaskowych nut owocowych oraz delikatny aromat wanilii przypominającą tą z leżakowania w beczce po bourbonie. W tle przewija się rwnież subtelna nuta wędzona. Alkohol praktycznie nie wyczuwalny
Smak i odczucie w ustach: Niskie wysycenie, bardzo gładkie, gęste ale nie wyklejające. W smaku jest trochę słodyczy, wyczuwalna przede wszystkim czekoladowe praliny, dużo palności, w tle posmaki wanilii, finisz długi i kawowy. Goryczka średnia, krtka i bardzo przyjemna.
Oglnie: Bardzo dobre piwo. Świetnie ułożone, trzymające wysoki poziom, pomimo iż nie jest to BA. Bardzo bogate w aromacie, ze świetną fakturą i smakiem, subtelna wanilią i praktycznie nie wyczuwalnym alkoholem. Polecam!

Svart tjockt brunt skum som lgger sig till en tunn hinna. Doft: bourbon, stt, kaffe, choklad, soja, aningen anis, brnt socker. Smak: mycket kaffe, bourbon, ltt, lite torr men nd lite oljig, lite lakrits, beska i eftersmaken, vervgande syrlig, inte s st som doften hintade om. Med mrk choklad till blir den rundare och mindre syrlig, mer bourbon mindre kaffe.

0.33 can. This looks great in the glass. Aroma is extraordinary: coffee, chocolate mousse, roastiness. Taste is medium sweet, and theres also some bitterness underneath all of these flavors that are slowly creeping up on your tongue. Really nice chocolate, coffee beans and dark fruits blended together in a full body. Balanced in every aspect. This beer is absolutely great!
