Got this one in a trade with fellow BA brewandbbq - big thanks for this one!

Poured this into my Duvel tulip. I like the bowl size on this glass for a stout, but I really need a snifter...

Love the can. Cracked it open and poured out motor oil. Wow this is thick. Dark black, with a minimal burnt brown sugar colored head, even with an aggressive pour. A few swirls and again, this is nice and thick.

The aromas coming from the glass can be smelled from several feet away. This has an awesome and strong nose. Loads of espresso, licorice, and toffee, and tons of dark roasted malts, followed by a nice boozy quality. Man, this smells great. I might just sit here with my nose in the glass all night! Post beer comment: I actually found the aroma rather overwhelming by the end of the beer.

Taste is not as much of a wow for me as the nose, but it's damn good! Great, even. Big roastiness, dark chocolate, dark roast coffee, and a hint of licorice to finish things up. Light on the boozy quality, actually, relative to the nose.

Mouthfeel on this is quite nice. Very smooth and creamy. Light carbonation. Long finish.

This has been a real treat. I couldn't drink a lot of these in a session, but I will certainly seek it out to get more. In fact, I have a trip to L.A. in a few days and I've already checked out Beerfly and found a spot to get more of this one. Looking forward to drinking two and letting two sit for a year or so to see what happens.

An odd note on this one, to finish my review. On my third sip, I caught a bit of this thick, gooey, dark black sludge right on my lower lip but it squirted out onto my shirt. What the hell? This was like some slimey black snot that must have come out of the dredges of the can. Honestly, for about a quarter of the beer, this weired me out, and I even thought about pouring the rest through a seive to make sure it was the last bit of it, but after a while I just forgot about it and just carried on. Looking back, pretty funnny, especially the nice spot on my shirt...

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!
