look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

First, the descriptions of this beer are fairly accurate. Here's the gist:

It's good. It's not quite great (for me), but it's good. I poured this beer into a pint glass and have been letting it warm up a little next to me, and been sipping it over the course of the last ten minutes.

A: It pours like a stout. Dark rich malts give it a deep high lovibond. Head was nowhere to be seen. A scatter star of lacing and no residual anywhere. It's sitting in my glass in a flat-coke utility kinda way.

S: Soy bomb. It reeks of tamari soy sauce. I guess that means it has umami, and yes, sushi would be a perfect pairing for it.

T: Surprisingly good given the smell. It has a citrus note that's lacking in most stouts. I'm going to assume it's coming from the hops, which are present but in a constant struggle for dominance against the sweet and sour sauce smoked malt. The taste is the best part.

M: Warming and comfortable, like a tongue sweater; it coats well. The smoked coffee aftertaste coming from the roasted malts isn't too overpowering. It's medium thick and sweet.

O: Overall, I have to give it an average rating. The smell is off putting to me and the slightly sour tang from the citrus notes comes across as asorbic. Definitely pair it with a protein.

Ten Fidy is possible the best imperial stout. Black darkness that is like motor oil. Pours with very little head. So smooth, hints of vanilla blended with a dark chocolate coffee finish. Doesn't taste like a 10.5%, what is tastes like is heaven. It will sneak up on you!
