Such a gorgeous color! Soooooooo dark! Thick! Creamy! A beautiful head! It’s about as high an ABV as I can tolerate but it’s smooth going down. ❤️ Love

This beer features one of the darkest, fullest heads Ican ever remember seeing on a beer, even a stout. Notes of fig, coffee, chocolate and black cherry accompany that monster head and jet body.

There s so much going on here it is a little overwhelmng. You have your dak ruits, roasted coffee and bakerschocolate colliding with 98 IBUs of piney hoptasticness. A bit of oatmeal smooths out that mouthfeel just right. Its quite amazing that this lives up to its outsized reputation. The ultimate deep winter stout?

The beer pours a solid black colour and a vigourous pour created a bubbly 1” head that receded to a thin film within a couple of minutes. The aroma is roasted malt, smoked malt, soy sauce, and dark chocolate. The mouthfeel is full bodied, well carbonated, and very creamy. The flavour is roasted malt, dark chocolate, and peppery spice. Maybe even a hint of coffee. The beer came with quite a reputation and it lives up to it. An excellent beer.

Great imperial stout. Pours dark and thick; looks like oil. Nice tan head. Chocolate, vanilla and roasted oats with a lot of hoppiness on the back end.

Ten FIDY is a go-to stout for me. Chocolate and coffee at a great price. The ABV is subdued. Try a very fantastic stout here. The barrel aged version is even better.

Dark brown colour, pouring with a beautiful and persistent head.
Chocolate and oak barrel on the nose. Some cognac also.
Roasted coffee taste, dark malt, burned caramel, charcoal, chocolate liquor, oak wood, alcohol- cognac.
Bitter-dry aftertaste, after an initial sweeter sensation, with some woody and ashy notes.
On the can it is written "fully roasted ale" - couldn't agree more.
Very good indeed!

Can. Fro 32GP. In Teku glass. Playing Game of Thrones. Very balanced, smooth, without an excessive sweetness and chocolatey notes. Abv fairly well hidden in flavors, although hits the head

This is the real deal. Alcohol does not stand out at all. Chocolate up front - subtle coffee. Smoother than Evil Twin Jesus series which I love to drink. Great price in comparison to similar Imperial Stouts.

Pours a pitch black coloration with a huge, creamy head. Smells of roasted, caramel malt, dark chocolate and licorice with a hint of dark fruit, coffee and vanilla. A certain hoppy note there as well. Taste follows the nose exactly, with a complex balance being dominated by roasted, caramel malt, dark chocolate, licorice and dark fruit: fig, plum, and just a hint of coffee, vanilla and a certain hoppy, almost piny, note. Finishes with a medium, dry bitterness. Smooth, almost oily mouthfeel with a medium body and low carbonation. Quite complex and well-balanced stout, very impressive.

Black body with a large, dense head the colour of burnt caramel.

Body is thick, viscous and flat. Flavors are chocolate and coffee and pine hops.

Pretty awesome.

L - Pitch black and almost two fingers of light brown head

S - red grape, light coffee, tobacco, black licorice, roasted malts, dark fruits, and even some citrus and pine.

T - Each sip goes from black cherries to citrus to bitterness. Just a dark fruit and bitter bonanza.

F - Velvety and mouth-coating. No alcohol.

O - A world class example of the style that shows you don't need adjuncts or barrel aging to produce a stellar stout.
