4.7/5  rDev +7.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A - pours like motor oil into the glass, small dark tan head does not hold up, a little lacing

S - lots of fruit and roast wafting from the glass, slight char/smoke, big and bold,

T - dark fruit sweetness to start is quickly whisked away, BIG creamy roast, lots of nuts (almonds?), decadent dark chocolate aftertaste that just goes on and on

M - velvety smooth, thick, lucious, low carbonation, NOT syrupy, big beer, but smooth alcohol

D - powerful flavours, but still incredibly smooth

Wow, I really like this!!! I've drank my share of good to great imperial stouts and this one really stands out (Bells Expedition would be the other). Huge roast, and incredibly thick, yet somehow has great drinkability.

Wish I had more than this 1 can. Thanks to Viggo for sending it my way!

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!

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

A: Poured jet black. Looks like motor oil, with close to no head.

S: heavy chocolate aromas with a hint of spice and coffee.

T: dark chocolate is the first thing you taste followed be a heavy malt flavor with a hint of coffee at the end of the tongue.

M: medium to heavy mouthful.
Flavor coats and lingers on the tongue for a while after the sip.

O: an amazing stout with an extremely smooth finish. Great beer.
