4.63/5  rDev +5.7%
look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

12oz can (canned on 10-15-12 @ 9:15 Peanuts Envy) poured into a snifter.

Appearance: Pitch black and lets no light through at all when held up to the light. Dense and thick dark tan head at first, slowly died down to a thick ring at the edge and thin skin across the top. Sheets and strands of persistent lacing. A great looking Russian Imperial Stout.

Smell: Rich roasty smell with mild alcohol notes, bittersweet chocolate, some dark fruity esters (a hint of raisin).

Taste: Rich bittersweet chocolate, smooth roasted malt, a pleasant sweetness through it all. It's just a hair on the sweet side of things, but perfectly balanced with roasted malt bitterness and some black coffee-like bitterness at the end. Simple, but very very tasty and well done.

Mouthfeel: Very creamy, thick, and smooth. Just right carbonation on the tongue at the end.

Overall / Drinkability: What an amazingly rich stout! I can see why people rave about this one. A slow sipper on a cool fall night (and would be good this winter, good thing that I bought a 4 pack) and I think would be great with food. I had it with a banana butterscotch muffin at the end and it paired pretty well. Definitely a one at a time beer - the ABV is notable pretty quickly on after starting to drink this one. It warms you up. I can't say I want another one right away....and yet....I wouldn't mind if I didn't have to go to work in the morning. One does sate though. Overall I'm very impressed with this beer from start to finish and I will definitely have to hunt this one down again when its in the area.

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!
