Can to snifter-hybrid. Pours a used engine oil brown with just a small dark toffee colored head that doesn't hang around for long. A quick swirl coats the sides of my glass. As expected from an imperial stout, the aroma has a powerful roasted malt character with a significant backbone of dark chocolate and just enough alcohol to let you know this beer isn't effing around. The taste backs up the smell and then some. Dark roasted malts, dark chocolate, a hint of alcohol, a moderate sweetness, and just enough hops to balance it all out. Ten Fidy is heavy but not too much so. It's a thick velvety liquid that coats my mouth like fine grade A maple syrup. As the first sip touched my lips my stubble grew to a beard that would make a Viking blush, my wife became instantly 6 months pregnant, my enemies felt a chill run up their spines, and a battle ax appeared before me. This is a mans beer. On the can a message reads, "this dog'll hunt." And it will.

Poured from the 12oz. can into a snifter.
This amazing brew purs a deep, inky and oily black with about a one-finger head that fades into some lingering foam around the egde. Only a bit of spotty lacing.
The aroma is roasty malt -- the darkest of dark chocolate, roast coffee, rich black tea. There are also notes of dark dried fruit .
The taste is an assault on the tongue. Intense. Chocolate, a bit of sweet toffee and raising and then big, bitter dark chocolate. The lingering, drying bitter note on the tongue has hints of more chocolate and roast coffee and malty Assam tea.
The mouthfeel is creamy and sticky with a bit of carbonation as well.
Overall, just wow. This beer does not disappoint. One of the best stouts I've tasted.
