Reviewing the Oak Aged Ten Fidy from Oskar Blues Brewing Company out of Colorado.

Score: 92

Growler pour served in a Hunahpu's snifter and enjoyed on 02/24/13 to celebrate the Oscars. Review is from iPhone notes. Thank you cosmicevan for the hookup. Sadly, I lost all but one photo from this tasting.

Appearance: Black as night. Thin head off pour totally settles. Nice lacing and retention. 4/5

Smell: Dark chocolate, oak and light hops. A little roast and biscuity malt too. Hint of coffee? 4/5

Taste: Tastes like Expedition Stout sans 90% of the hoppiness plus oak. More oak and light vanilla as it warms up. Nice chocolate flavor. 4.25/5

Mouthfeel: Mouthfeel is damn near perfect. Full bodied, low carbonation. Viscous and sticky. Dry finish. 5/5

Overall: Better than the barrel aged versions of Ten Fidy (Jim Beam and Wild Turkey aged), but not as good as the regular ol' stuff fresh.

Cost: Unknown.

On tap at The Good Life, Massapequa NY

A - Pour is midnight black and there is very little to no foam retention. Lacing is also much less than its base beer. It visibly coated the glass with a slick syrupy cloying.

S - The oaken scent is very prominent in this beer. It almost gives off a smoky feel. The dark malts take on a slightly roasted note. The chocolate notes from Ten Fidy are much more subdued in this beer.

T - Mellow flavor of cocoa, toffee, and light coffee notes. As it warmed the beer takes on more of the wood pulp into its taste which adds greatly to the complexity. towards the end it had some characteristics of a good cigar. Certianly let this get to the right temperature.

M - Insanely smooth for the style and ABV. Thick consistency that reminds you it is a big stout. Leaves a coating in the mouth.

O - I have a tough time deciding if this is better than the base Ten Fidy or really just a different beer. In hindsight the oak aging mellowed the rich chocolate notes and hid some of the subtle notes (like coffee flavors) to add a bit of smoke and wood to create a lyer of complexity to the brew.

On tap at a local craft bar. $9.50 for 10oz our. Came in a sniftery glass. Dark as night and nit much he'd. Looks thick and chunky and motor oil. Smells of oak in a big way. Flavor also is big oak makes it like ten fidy plus. Maybe eleven fidy or ten fidy one? Pretty chewy and thick like ten fidy aught to be. Nice black malts and chocolatiness, withbsome nice oak glazings. Drinks easy as it warms and matures into something wonderful. Really nice and enjoyable. Must try for any stout fan. Really easy drinking fit such aa big bee.
