This is a pretty strong beer. Now doubt about it. This is a pitch black brew. Evan the foam is bark. It has a heavy roasted chocolate and caramel odor to it. The taste is very harsh at first. Though it really mellowed out while drinking it. Not sure if it needed to breath or just warm up. Similar to a red wine. In the end, it was a heavily malted, coffee tasting beer. The mouthfeel is ok.
Overall, this is a goodbeer. Definitely better after it breathed some.
Serving type: on-tap

Couldn't wait till stout season to try this one ! Drank from my Ciney sniffer.
A - Pours a thick ebony/oily colour with a nice tight coffee head that retains real well for an impy stout.
S - Nice balanced sweet vanilla and roasted malts.
T - Up front some damn smooth flavours of vanilla and caramel. The roast kicks in mid palate before some nice toffee and vanilla flavours finish off the back palate.
M - Smooth, smooth and damn smooth. Top marks
O - Great stout, You will find it hard to beat.

Appearance is black with a dark tan head, not much lacing.
Smell is of dark fruit, dark chocolate and coffee
Taste reflects the smell. Perfect taste for a RIS
Mouthfeel is perfect. Heavy, syrupy liquid.
Overall it as good an RIS as I have had. Only drawback is that it is pricey. And with Old Rasputin available, Ten Fidy will be rarity.
