Poured from a 12 oz. can into a snifter glass.

L - Pitch black like motor oil (hence the name) with a nice thick light brown head that stuck around. Decent lacing on the glass.

S - Getting some dark fruits but kinda lacking in this depatment.

T - Dark fruits with a nice little alcohol kick.

F - Super creamy and thick, really seems to coat the inside of your mouth.

O - A really great, super accessible Imperial Stout.

Exquisite.

L: pours black, thick inch and a half dark leather head.

S: this is the only place I don't get much from this beer. Smell is a bit weak but roasted malts do come through.

T: this is where Ten Fidy shines. Dark roast malts, chocolate, vanilla, and some coffee. Flavors are very well balanced throughout and no flavor overpowers the others.

M: thick and rich. A little like heavy cream with a long lingering coat on the tongue.

O: an outstanding beer plain and simple. Glad I saw it this evening and even more glad it's in a 4-pack.

Pour black with a dark tan head. Smells of dark roast malts, dark chocolate, cocoa nibs, vanilla and a bit of oak. Tastes of very rich dark roast malts, coffee, dark chocolate and a Medium carbonation with full body. Dark malt, coffee and dark chocolate with a light pine on the aftertaste. A very light pine resin left on the lips. I do not really detect any booze which is impressive with 10.5% abc. Outstanding imperial stout!

Christmas gift. Can dated November 7, 2013.
This was poured into a snifter.
The appearance, well, it poured like motor oil and had the same color body - pure jet black motor oil. A one finger white to off white foamy head dissipated into oblivion after about a good thirty seconds. Light speckled to spider web lacing stuck around the glass.
The smell had a big boozy roasty chocolate to light coffee arranging itself nicely around the base of the beer.
The taste was pretty much the same with a long lingering roasty chocolate aftertaste. Light sticky wet finish.
The mouthfeel sat about a medium on the body with a good sipping quality about it. Roasted chocolate to coffee notes roll over my tongue.
Overall, hot damn, this stuff is absolutely awesome. I can only imagine what this RIS is like when fresh.
