12oz can poured into goblet glass
A: Blackest, most opaque stout I’ve poured. Viscous as hell, strongly resembling crude oil, with some mean looking surface tension - Had a one finger mocha tan head that didn’t have too much retention. Too deep to access any carbonation – a beautiful froth that’s a brilliant bronze
S: Roasted malt, bitter chocolate, cola, light anise, coffee bean, smells nice and bitter, very sharp, burnt sweet caramel, black cherries and prunes/plum
T: Malt banger, super roasted, creamy mocha mixed with caramel spiced in anise warping the bitters. Middle mouth sets in after the initial hop collides head on with smoked/charred malt; the residual is a smooth candied cocoa. Subtle heat, shades of Godiva liqueur. Cacao nibs flushed with chocolate malts dominate and run the show, pushing the smoke-roasted bready notes.
M: Big body, CHEWY, oily and slick. Carbonation is mild; I don’t know how it moves through this level of viscosity. Leaves a nice layer in the mouth that’s candied and chocolaty.
O: This is easily the best imperial stout and certainly the densest I’ve had. It's fantastic - Brings roasty bitter chocolate malt to a whole new level. It sports some intimidating flavor, and it’s totally in your face. Delicious, looking forward to my three remaining cans and any others I happen to see, ever.
And I love the name, TEN FIIIDY.
