Poured from a 12oz can into a snifter, looks of spent motor oil! A dirty copper, light brown head even resembles such.

The smell brings on licorice, roasted coffee, and sweet chocolate. Very pleasant.

Subtly sweet with hints of chocolate and coffee. Almost like the best espresso I've ever had, minus the hop bitterness that bites as soon as it hits the tongue. Taste is right on key, and so drinkable at 10.5% abv. Amazing, it's hard to drink it slow!

It's smooth, silky, and leaves a coating almost like milk does in your mouth that stings of hops and the taste of roasted chocolate.

Very good stout, hand's down one of my favorites and glad I got to finally try it. If you can find one, drink it. Oskar Blues did a very good job here!

Bought on April 12th, 2014, but canned on September 24th, 2012 (...?!). Enjoyed at cellar temperature in a snifter.

Inky blackness oozed out of the can and, darkly pooling in my snifter, created a one-finger head of mocha-brown froth. Beauty.

From the moment I cracked the can open my nose detected a downright lethal dose of chocolate. This is balanced and enhanced by a thwomp (yes, "thwomp") of rum-soaked raisins and prunes, with a touch of earthy vanilla. Notably chocolaty and fruity, like chocolate-covered raisins smell. The aroma also has a bit of a likeness to the dough of a sweet, dark rye bread.

The flavor is a maelstrom of intense chocolaty maltiness and roasty earthiness. And it has a depth of dark fruitiness I usually only get from Belgian strong dark ales. Simply sublime. Must be the age.

The feel is thick, heavy, and sticky... duh! Anyway, it's great.

Tremendously tasty.

12oz can dated 10/19/12. Poured into my KBS tulip glass.

A- Pours black, looks like used motor oil. Finger and a half of creamy toffee colored head, which quickly leaves a sticky lacing down the the glass as it dissipates. Has the look of my kind of Imperial Stout!

S- With the first dip of the glass to the nose, I got coffee, and a hint of soy sauce. Chocolate and roasted malts are also present. The appearance and smell have not disappointed. Onto the taste!

T- I've been waiting for this. Taste follows the nose very well. Coffee, chocolate. I didn't pick up on a soy sauce taste. A slight boozyness follows as the beer is swallowed. Very good! Has the taste of a barrel aged stout.

M- Slightly thick, creamy, very smooth. Leaves a bit of a sticky feel as the beer is swallowed.

O- Ten Fidy is a great beer, very good Imperial Stout! Even though this beer is 10.5 ABV, It didn't go down that way. Very smooth. I was turned off at the thought of an Imperial Stout in a can, but trust me, pop the top, poor this bad boy into your favorite glass and enjoy!
