A - Solid black, completely opaque. Head is substantial, brown, with a very slow fade to large bubbles then scattered lacing.

S - Booze is out front. Roasted malt and coffee, slight suggestion of sugared plums, subtle soy sauce, but a relatively restrained nose. Particularly when you think about the range the taste shows, how quiet this beer is in the lead up is surprising.

T - Alcohol is ever-present, but beneath the steady hum of booze are a broad array of stout tropes. Roast malt comes through first, with coffee and bitter chocolate filling in the middle, and a closing of hops with smokey hints of the roast and sweet dried fruits.

M - Surprising combination of thick, smooth, and creamy, but without becoming cloying. Some carbonation, but it is mild. Not much warmth given its nose and 10.5% namesake.

O - An impressive feat, this RIS is both a powerhouse and surprisingly drinkable. Ten Fidy delivers.
