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.

Not really my thing. The taste is overwhelming and not all that enjoyable. I struggled to finish the can. With that said, my friend who finished it loved the beer. I would personally recommend against this, but given its high rating most people disagree with me. To each their own.
