First of all, thanks to beertunes for this one!
Ten FIDY pours a deep brown just shy of black with a big brown head. The aroma is an overwhelming molasses, like wiping blackstrap under your nose although it did calm down enough to notice a little licorice. The taste is very similar. It was kin to licking a taste of molasses and swallowing a little water. It eventually calmed down as well but went almost directly into bittersweet chocolate mode where that was all that I could taste. Near the end a little licorice and smoked barley came through but not enough. A sweet alcohol retro-olfactory is present throughout. The mouthfeel has a good imperial stout mouth-coating but is fairly smootth with just a bit of a syrupy feel and good carbonation to make it go down easier.
I must say it slmost unnatural to see something that dark come out of a can, and I mean that in a good way. I wonder if this gets a few bonus points for being from a can but overall it is a pretty easy drinking imp stout that is hard to stay away from.

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!

A: Poured jet black. Looks like motor oil, with close to no head.
S: heavy chocolate aromas with a hint of spice and coffee.
T: dark chocolate is the first thing you taste followed be a heavy malt flavor with a hint of coffee at the end of the tongue.
M: medium to heavy mouthful.
Flavor coats and lingers on the tongue for a while after the sip.
O: an amazing stout with an extremely smooth finish. Great beer.
