I was disappointed. Taste didn’t match the high rating. This tastes pretty average to me.

Can dated 8/15/18. Poured into nonic pint.
Look is pitch black with a soft ten head. Nose is espresso and bitter dark chocolate. Taste is the same with extra bitter dark chocolate in the middle and a ton of roastiness and bitterness coming through in the end complimenting a nice malty sweetness. Mouthfeel is thick and chunky. Overall a really nice thick Russian imperial stout. Teeters right on the edge of too much bitterness but ends up on the balanced side, good stuff.

This beer pours such a gorgeous looking black liquid with tan to light brown head due to the addition of flaked oats. Alcohol is well hidden although I am getting a slight burning sensation on the backend The dark chocolate notes are big on this beer with a little coffee & oats on the backend. Clearly this beer rivals other great RIS like Old Rasputin, Founders Imperial Stout, Marshal Zhukov, & Bell's Expedition Stout. Man I tell you Ten Fidy damn near knocked me out of my chair the first time I had it. I can imagine how great this must be on tap. If you are a newbie to stouts don't give up on the style because you did not like the first one that you had work your way up to Ten Fidy & thank me later when you do. I agree with this beer being on the lower end of World Class. Hopefully, I get to try the bourbon barrel aged version of this beer because they are quite limited in quantities. Cheers! A

Imperial Stouts.I think this is the best I have ever had.Albeit pricey,and way to strong to have more than one per sitting,this beer is what a RIS should be.Sit and sip one,enjoy life, then proceed to something weaker to finish your relaxation time with.Highly recommended!
