Well, Ten Fidy is a big, bad, bold beer. This review is for a can that is nearly one year old.

Viscous black liquid with a small brown head. Some lacing along the glass.

Huge grain and chocolate malt aroma, caramel sweetness, molasses, roast, fresh wood, hint of booze. Just an incredibly deep, rich malty nose.

Taste offers a huge roasted character with restrained sweetness, dark chocolate, alcohol, and long, lingering bitterness.

Feel is spot on. I mean perfect. Huge, chewy body with some presence from the oats. Soft, fading carbonation.

A damn good RIS."Must try" for any beer lover.

A - Jet black, no light shall pass. Two fingers of head billow and collapse into a sandy cap.

S - Dutch process cocoa powder, chocolate malt, roasty, bourbon, vanilla, ancho chiles

T - Dark chocolate, espresso crema bigtime, cinnamon, currant/prune, coconut cream. Sweet, but not cloying. Malty, but hoppy enough to keep it grounded

M - Absolutely luscious and viscous without being syrupy. Light carbonation. Big body.

This is definitely the best IS that seems to always be available somewhere in Nashville
