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: APR 11, 2015 Tasted from can at Flossmoor?s pre-DLD day, 5/9/08. "The darkest beer in a can," someone said. Guinness, maybe? Anyway, I?m tasting this right after a swig of Peche Mortel, the only thing that this would taster "lighter" than. A tad sweeter than your imperial type beers. Shows nice character of coffee and milk chocolate to make the alcohol burn a little easier going down. Ends up tasting like a big sip of coffee-flavored syrup.

2012 can, poured 4/11/15. Warm Bourbon nose during the pour. Once settled in the goblet, some slightly roasted black malt smell, but alcohol keeps it from being overly bitter. Viscous texture makes this a prime beer for sipping. A bit of syrupy stickiness on the lips. A bit more roasty on the tongue, even a bit of hop bitterness for a beer that Ive been able to keep in the fridge for all of the 3 years Ive had it. Still, a slight tinge Much better from a full can than sampled with many others.

Burk frn SB. P tiden att jag testar denna klassiker. Testade jmte Bourbon BA Ten Fidy. Kolsvart, tjock vtska med riktigt tjusigt, krmigt och grddigt beigebrunt skum som ligger kvar lnge och lmnar rester lngs sidorna. Stor, fyllig doft av choklad, krmig toffee, kaffe, chark, brnda och lite rkiga toner, ek, rg. Stor, maffig kropp, hrligt rund, len och grddig. Smaken r ganska rostad, ngot krv med mycket toffee, kaffesump, choklad, lite ek och chark. Avslutas i stora, brnda toner med bra beska. Ligger kvar lnge i munnen med bittra toner frn mrk choklad och lite vrmande alkohol. Potent IS. Riktigt, riktigt bra. Helt klart en utmanare till Yetin.

Medium aroma of malts, caramel, dark fruit, chocolate, mocha, roasted malts and coffee.

Opaque black beer with a medium dark brown head.

Starts medium/heavy sweet with malts, caramel, dark fruit, chocolate and mocha; ends slightly bitter and dry with roasted malts and coffee.

This beer is intense, complex and balanced. What an insane flavour full of sweet dark fruit and chocolate and with a lot of roasted malts and coffee as well; with even some delicious mocha along the way. Perfect appearance and palate too, but the aroma could have been a lot stronger.

Une des choses les plus noires que jai vues de ma vie. Opaque et pais comme de lhuile moteur use. phmre mousse chocolat, passablement fonce elle aussi. Nez de caf, de pain et de cacao, avec un peu dalcool. En bouche, dcadente srie de saveurs soyeuses, chocolat noir, amertume coupante, caf concentr, un brin de prune mrie au maximum. Toutes les saveurs classiques dun impy stout russi, mais encore plus intense et, comment dire... compltement fou. Un dessert dans un verre, mais sans mener lcoeurement. Cest merveilleux.

PotjeBier (3031) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - APR 21, 2017
Had this once from tap in a pre RB life, now a chance to retry. Draft @ Beer Temple, 5 oz sample. Pitch black color. Dense rocky brown head with good retention and lacing. Aromas: big roasted malts, chocolate. Retronasal its roast, drop, coffee, dark chocolate. Flavor is moderate sweet, with roast bitterness. Quite full bodied. Finishes with lots of roast, moderate to full bitter. Pretty much an oldschool imperial stout. Good stuff!

A 12 fl oz can, canned on 13th October 2016, with a note that said Midnight on a moonless night. Poured into a Lost Abbey teku glass. It was black in colour with a nice two fingered mocha brown head that had great retention and left lots of nice sticky lacing. Aromas of roasty coffee, rich dark chocolate and light char with hints of molasses and licorice. Tastes of roasted malts, molasses and dark fruit plum and raisins to start, followed by rich dark chocolate, roasty coffee, caramel and a light char. Finish is lightly bitter. Rich, velvety, creamy and smooth. Full bodied with moderate to light carbonation. Overall a wonderful Imperial Stout from Oskar Blues which is nicely balanced and great to drink.

Bebum (895) - Massachusetts, USA - APR 16, 2017
Black, opaque color, fine, tall and lasting mousse. Very full body, dense flavor, hot and bubbly mouthfeel, lingering palate, tasty finish. Assertively bittersweet, very crisp. Predominantly dark roast coffee flavors, dried fruits, raisins, vanilla, hoppy and malty, ashy. A new favorite. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Czarne, nieprzejrzyste. Piana obfita, brązowa, drobna, zostawia trochę lacingu, opada do zera po pewnym czasie. W aromacie dużo mlecznej czekolady i kakao. Smak znowu mleczna czekolada i kakao, pźniej wjeżdża kawa. Goryczka niska, wysycenie niskie, posmak czekoladowo-kawowy.
