This was a great beer, don't get me wrong. It was just to chocolate-y for my taste.

Appearance: Deep black in color, utterly opaque before a light, with a small tan head, which soon collapses to a dusting of foam. Thin, fine-beaded lacing adorns the glass walls.

Aroma: Strong and sweet vinous alcohol dominates the aroma, along with charred malt, coffee, bitter cocoa, and wood.

Taste: Opens with a wave of roasted dark malt and cold coffee. Bitter cocoa soon follows. Sweet alcohol is omnipresent. Later in the taste, oak notes appear. The hops are quite restrained, with just a hint of herbal flavors. Finishes with lingering coffee, bitter cocoa, and sweet alcohol.

Mouth feel: Smooth, very full and soft, with just a hint of carbonation.

Drinkabilty/notes: Absolutely awesome, surely one of the finest Russian Imperial Stouts, or one of the finest beers, irrespective of style, that I have ever had.

Presentation: Packaged in a twelve-ounce aluminum can, served in a New Belgium Brewing chalice.

This is, by far and away, my favorite stout...and perhaps my favorite beer. I dig the motor oil comparison, and the cappuccino hued bubbles that cling to the sides of my glass. The drink tastes like a well prepared meal with lots roasted and toasted bits. It pours and drinks like a 3% milk. A four pack of Ten Fidy is a beautiful way to splurge on a Saturday night by a roaring fire pit. Skol.
