Not my first ten Fidy, but first time reviewing it. Looks as black as oil, and just about as thick with dark coffee colored head. Full robust, flavorful with a fair amount of alcohol, letting you know where the name came from. A great RIS, noy a bad value considering you can get it in a 12 ounce can instead of bomber. A great beer for winter or after a day of skiing.

Appearance: It pours a dark black with no visible light shining through; it is topped with a ¼” of brownish head. Belgian lacing sticks on the side of the pint all the way down to the end.
Smell: Roasted notes dominate the nose followed by oak.
Taste: Ten Fidy has a nice blend of flavors that all kind of balance each other nicely, roasted malt, coffee, oak notes, bourbon, vanilla and just enough alcohol burn to remind you about the abv.
Mouthfeel: This is a deliciously thick beer that warms you from the inside out and lets the flavors stick around well into the sip.

This stuff is BLACK. Think they call it Ten Fidy because it reminded them of motor oil.

Pours with absolutely no carbonation, somehow forms a head that looks like espresso foam. Laces pretty faintly. Smell is like Nutella on slightly burnt toast. The taste is dark mocha, with a nice bitterness to it...something almost like worcestershire sauce. Mouthfeel trends strongly syrupy, but not like it coats your tongue. Just enough carbonation to make it very drinkable.

I'm not a big stout guy, but this one is fantastic. And it comes in a can. I'm gonna bring this to holiday parties and stun people.

Poured from a 12 ounce can into a pint glass.

A: Pitch black with a very small caramel colored head which quickly dissipates to a lacing and not much more.

S: Roasted malts and chocolate malts on the nose with hints of alcohol through.

T: Tastes as it smells, a nicely roasted flavor into a mildly dark chocolate flavor with a slight alcohol burn.

M: Syrupy and thick with almost no sign of carbonation.

O: Honestly this tastes very much like a more balanced toned down Brooklyn Black Chocolate, and I say that in high regards.
