After years of reading BeerAdvocate reviews...I'm ready to make my first review and I chose a great one to review. As a big fan of Dale's Pale Ale I was pumped to see Ten Fidy had arrived at Town Wine in East Providence, RI.
A: Black. Black as oil. Small amount of head. Dark brown. Perrrfect.
S: Chocolate and coffee. I could also smell a hint of alcohol.
T: Coffee is the first taste my mouth has and then gradually it changes to chocolate. There is a slight hop taste which I love but the heavy malt is the most recognizable taste. I can barely taste the alcohol despite it being 10% ABV. Tasty indeed.
M: Smooth with very little carbonation. Goes down like water.
D: So I had read that this was a sneaky beer. I didn't realize it while drinking, but a short while later after finishing..POW! I love that it has a kick to it that is surprising considering its tough to really taste the alcohol. Limit one for me.
I've had a handful of Imperial Stouts in my beer drinking career...and this is my favorite so far.
Serving type: can
