Notes / Commercial Description:

This beer is blacker than night when pouring. You can see your soul in the blackness that is ten fidy. This is one of the best if not the best imperial stout and its in a can. Beat that pretentious bottle heads. This is a must for anyone who thinks most stouts are malt foreword this has hops. It's really just a decadent creamy chocolate bar that you can drink. Fuck Industry Do it Yourself.

10w40 mixed with dark chocolate, dark coffee, dark fruit, and a hint of degenerate matter from a neutron star.

One isn't enough, two is too many!

12oz can (Canned on 8/25/14) poured into a 16oz Belgian snifter/globe glass.

A- Pours a viscous, used motor oil black. The head was nothing more than a 1/2-finger's worth of a mocha colored head which disappeared as quickly as it formed. No light passes, even at the edges of the glass. (5.0)

S- Not explosive, but very complex of which builds as it warms. Molasses, Caramel, Anise, Milk Chocolate, Coffee and a fruitiness that is reminiscent of a plum or cherry. No alcohol in the nose. Although it is a bit more pungent (operative word: thick), it is somewhat reminiscent of Stone's Russian Imperial Stout. (4.25)

T- Milk chocolate sweetness attacks the palate first. Mid-palate is met with a dark roasted malts and that 'fruity' note...no doubt courtesy of the heavy handed dose of hops (98 IBU) and/or the yeast strain employed. It finishes with a very baker's chocolate/espresso astringency. As it warms, the 10.5% ABV is felt in the chest on the way down. (4.5)
M- Consumes the palate from front to back. This is a full-bodied beer that makes it a bonafide sipper. (4.5)

O- Undoubtedly a fantastic imperial stout, but at nearly $4 a can, the value (or lack thereof) is hard to justify against other stouts (some barrel aged and/or brewed with adjuncts) in the same category. However, if you are in the mood to treat yourself, Ten FIDY is certainly worthy of a try. (4.5)
