Retired? Nooo!

I got my one and only four-pack two days ago at 3 Sons in Wexford -- something I had been dying to try since reading about it in BA mag a couple of months back. That kind of anticipation is often hard to equal once you finally get your hands on the beer.

I'm happy to say that in this case, Ten Fidy was as good as I had hoped -- and maybe better.

A -- darkest, thickest beer I've ever seen. Saying it pours like oil is not an exaggeration. Thin, dark brown head forms after a hard pour. And stays. And stays. And stays.

S -- maybe the only thing about this beer that's close to pedestrian. Big roasted aroma, with coffee up front and chocolate and tobacco in the background.

T -- Wow. Chocolate is bigger than the aroma would suggest, but not sweet at all. Coffee and other roasted flavors swirl around the chocolate, and there's a nice, dry, hoppy tinge at the end. What you don't get much of is the alcohol; a remarkable job of masking for a 10-percenter.

M -- Luscious. Rich. Thick. Smooth. Holy crap.

D -- Rated high, because of the exceptional complexity and off-the-hook mouthfeel. Easy to forget this beer's ABV.

OK. If you have a chance to try this, don't pass it up. And if you work for Oskar Blues: For crying out loud, tell someone to bring this back next winter, willya?
