Pours pitch black with a huge three finger milk chocolate head. Great retention and lacing. But, it does eventually fade to a small ring around the glass.
On the nose is sweet malt, bitter coffee, lactose, milk chocolate, cream, and some hops and alcohol. Very complex. There's always been a weird kind of off putting scent in some stouts that I'm not too fond of. Almost kind of puky smelling. It's very strong here.
The taste is better than the smell. One of the more interesting stouts I've had. Char, some woody hops, chocolate and coffee. No real dark fruit presence like most stouts. Hides the alcohol very well but there's a slight warmth. Nice. More hop notes detected as I swallow the beer.
Mouthfeel is huge. Smooth and chewy. One of the biggest stouts I've tried so far. More carbonation than expected. Really pricks the tongue.
This is a very interesting beer. Different from most stouts I've had. Was worried I was beginning to run out of ways to describe them. But this is very nice and definitely worth the try.

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!
