A person who gives you their last 100pt beer in the fridge.
Thanks, Jimi! Ten Fidy is so unbelievably smooth.
When I poured it into the glass, my first thought reminded me of changing the car oil after waiting too many miles ... it poured so thick and black ... like bad oil. I now understand why this is $15/4pk and it's worth the money. wow, what an exceptionally smooth beer. I have just been ruined for wanted to try _anything_ other imperial stout.
Standing in front of the poured glass on the counter, I could clearly smell the strong aromas. It's just so wonderful. Rich. Heavy. Chocolate. Dark chocolate. Roasted. Mature. Thorough. Molasses. Thick. Rest well on palette. Aftertaste lingers. Worth every single penny.

4.56/5 rDev +4.1%
Can to a snifter, canned 8/29/13
Pours pitch black with a finger and a half of dark mocha foam, moderate carbonation on the sides. Good retention and lacing, great looking beer
Smells of roast coffee, dark chocolate, caramel, and alcohol. Really good but not too complex, might be my stuffy nose
Taste is with the nose, dark espresso, dark chocolate, roast caramel malts, a little hoppy citrus, and a touch of alcohol on the finish. Really good even at two months old, everything comes together really well
Feel is smooth and creamy, thick, milky, and full. Alcohol concealed really well despite it's age, goes down dangerously easy
Overall one of the better RIS I've had. Three more cans sitting in my cellar, this should really be something in a year or two

Amongst the biggest and grandest of appearances, this stout is thick and viscous. Black beyond comprehension the head slowly built in a row of foam then slowly disappated to a thin line. The foam was deep brown it held a ton of lacing.
Deep coffee aroma mixed with a bit of char, then chocolate, caramel and marshmallow hit the nose. Some light malt aroma, roasted of course, can be found near the end.
The flavors in this stout are so robust, so rich, that as cliche as it is I can't believe it comes from a can. The roasted coffee is strong at the front and then rails into a chocolate, Graham cracker and marshmallow finish. I actually catch a roasted caramel malt in there, though it is tempered and lost in all of the other richness.
The feel is silky smooth with a real thickness. 10.5 ABV is only noticeable in a heat that enters the chest. The carbonation is low and it lends to an easy drinkability.
I know it has been said before and there's a lot of hype but this really is something special, and it's in a can!

T: Roasted malts, cocoa, hops, dark roast coffee, some smokiness, & some BC powder-like bitterness on the finish.
M: Thick & somewhat creamy.
O: Good stout. I understand the hype, but it's dangerous due to the alcohol content!!!

4.75/5 rDev +8.4%
A: Almost onyx. Thick and syrupy. Abundant head that dissipates into fantastic lacing. A pretty beer!
S: Even though I'm drinking this from a snifter I'm not overwhelmed by the smell. That being said it is still a pleasant aroma of molasses and chicory.
T: Up front, chocolate coffee and light smokiness. On the finish dark fruit but not sweet. Awesome!!
M: Sticky! Sticks to the inside of your mouth like it does to the side of your glass. Wow!
O: this is what I want in a stout. As winter approaches and I switch to stouts porters and barley wines this beer does not disappoint. To me it lives up to the hype.
