Had this on tap and in the can at the Distillery in Sav. GA. Both were equally great.

Ten Fidy pours jet black with a coca colored head. Aroma is full of Roast, Coca, and Dark Fruit, Flavor washes your senses with roast, coffee, rasins and prunes. The alcohol is present as it is in all my favorite imperial stouts, but it is not obtrusive, subtle actually when you consider that it is 10% ABV. Superbly drinkable this beer could get you into trouble if you are not paying attention.

Comparing this beer to others in the style I have to put it at the top, de-throning others such as Avery's Czar, Bell's Expedition, and Old Rasputin. Even the perennial #2 beer can take some lessons away from Ten Fidy.

I don't want to rate this beer perfect, but I can't mark it down in any of the categories in good conscience. At $8 for 12 ounces that is a bit steep, but I'll gladly pay for a couple of snifters full to revisit this gem every winter.

12 oz can, poured into a goblet.

Appearance: Pours a beautiful, completely opaque, pitch-black color with a half of a finger of caramel-colored head that quickly dissolved into a halo of foam that gripped the sides of the glass and formed a few wispy clouds of foam that settled atop the beer.

Aroma: I’m stuffed up at the moment (I know that being in that condition is not ideal for reviewing a beer) so I’m not getting much out of the aroma, but other reviewers have noted aromas of roasted malt, bitter chocolate, cocoa, coffee, molasses, subtle smoke, subtle licorice and boozy alcohol.

Taste: Brilliant!! Massive roasted malt up front, imparting notes of toasted dark bread, some subtle coffee notes and smoke, followed by tons of brown sugar-like sweetness, a touch of dark chocolate, a touch of licorice, and a touch of floral hops. Absolutely delicious!!

Mouthfeel: Chewy and smooth as silk as there is no carbonation what-so-ever. With an ABV of 10%, there is quite a pleasant alcohol warmth on the palate.

Overall: Wow, just wow!! What a beer! What a stout!! MASSIVE, bold flavors, all wrapped up in an extremely smooth and creamy beer. Truly one of the best non-barrel-aged imperial stouts that I’ve had and equal to Bell’s Kalamazoo Stout, Founders’ Imperial Stout, Great Lakes’ Blackout Stout and Left Hand’s Wake Up Dead. Truly Spectacular!!
