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.

beerking99 (199) - Virginia, USA - APR 9, 2008
I REALLY want to like this beer more. The look is AWESOME, with a dark brown head, about 1/2 inch high, leaving a cap and lace all the way down. Darkest head I have ever seen on any beer. Pours thicker than any beer I have ever had before, much like a 30W oil, AFTER months in the engine. Aroma is great, EXTREMELY roasty, with burnt notes. There is some notes of higher alcohols in the nose, but they blend well with the roast. Flavor is where this beer falls apart. HUGE notes of fusel alcohols, and I am expecting a big headache from this. The higher alcohols form a hot, astringent character on the tongue, very slightly overwhelming. The roastiness and malt is great, but the fusels are too much. I recommend sharing this, as 12 oz seems way too much.

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!

Emelie (65) - rebro, SWEDEN - MAR 19, 2017
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!
