P: Pours like oil from the can. Thick and chunky. Completely pitch black with a dirty espresso head that dissipates to a disturbed wake. Micro bubble lacing that slides around the glass.

S: Roasted Colombian coffee, hot fudge, vanilla bean, dark fruits, chocolate milk and molasses. Nice to see that the roasted notes are exactly that and not burnt.

T/M: Thick oily adult chocolate milk with a kick of coffee. The ten fidy shows itself as a sweet boozy cherry sting that balances nicely. Bitter baking cocoa, vanilla, french oak, smoldered barley and cayenne pepper. Mouthfeel is hardcore thick, oily and coats like peanut butter on the roof of your mouth.

O: I have been anxious to try this and I can say I was very pleased. I would have liked more roasted coffee or grains to combat the sweet. Indeed a sipper to enjoy that creates a film of awesomeness encompassing the entire mouth. I will be picking up more of this for sure.

Poured into a pint glass. Thanks, Cliff!

A: Inky black. A tan, one finger head that sits there and dares you to drink it. Aggressive lacing.

S: Chocolate and coffee go head to head. Just delightful.

T: Pow! Right in the kisser. Chocolate slides in with nice coffee notes. Smooth, warming. Sweet, but not overly so. Alcohol creeps in without a whisper. Sip and be awed. Even better as it warms.

M: Medium to high; chewy, frothy carbonation.

O: Damn fine, especially coming from a can. Seek out this 10.5 kickass brew. You'll get your 10 fidy's worth.
