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.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

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.

Canned On: 09-21-11

A: Pours a pitch black, like viscous motor oil. Almost no head at all

S: Very roasty, with dark chocolate, burnt coffee, anise. Overall just very malty

T: Same as the smell, with a lingering bitterness from the hops and coffee taste. Anise and dark chocolate in there throughout as well, but it is the coffee and anise that linger most with that bitterness. Some alcohol, but it's integrated nicely

M: Full bodied with low carbonation. Very smooth and very viscous

O: Wow. What a beer. An almost perfect example of an RIS. The $15.99 for a 4-pack is WELL worth it
