Served in a snifter.

Pours thicker than used motor oil, Ten Fidy leaves behind only a squat dark ruby head and black body in the glass.

The nose has a little cocoa powder, dark chocolate, some molasses, and a bit of resin-y hops. Man that is rich and balanced.

This malty beast has the potential for cloying, what with the Tootsie Roll and Hershey's chocolate flavor. However, there is a nice punch of pine-y hops that make the whole affair slightly bitter, like a really dark cocoa bean. The roast is also prominent in the finish. This is a chocolatey and roasty monster.

Benchmark. Absolutely benchmark. I am drinking a beer that was an ice cream malt in another life. Huge, creamy, a finish that goes on forever, I swear this is not hyperbole.

Ten Fidy was an incredible drinking experience. This is one of the most balanced Russian Imperial Stout's I have ever had. And the mouth feel that comes out of this canned offering is as good as it can possibly get.
