Pours dark black with massive, massive tanned head. Great head/lacing.

Smell is nuttiness, soy and minerals a la Old Chub. A nice green apple. Would like a little more roast to this but it definitely has a presence regardless.

Taste is green apple, caramel, and soy. A little bit of roast in the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel is, as expected, huge. So thick.

Worth drinking for the thickness alone. If this had more roast it would be spectacular.

You don't just DRINK a can of Ten FIDY, you COMMIT to it!

Opaque obsidian appearance with a slight head from an aggressive pour. The nose brings back childhood memories of opening the cap on a bottle of Brer Rabbit molasses: notes of espresso and black Australian licorice also.

Not much in the way of carbonation, but an RIS isn't supposed to be effervescent. Taste is exceptionally rich, deep, and creamy. There is a wave of full force flavors that coat your palate like roofing tar: dark roasted espresso, dark heavy molasses with a dose of black licorice. Full bodied and drinks like a can of beef stew.

Lasting aftertaste of roasted espresso, Fox's U-Bet chocolate syrup, Brer Rabbit dark molasses with a touch o' booze and intense black licorice.

A must try for any serious beer fan, Ten FIDY delivers a meal in a can! Flavors intensify and change up slightly as it warms, a good idea to have a bottle of spring water to go with this bad boy.

Oskar Blues Brewing Company - Ten FIDY - 12oz can

Haha! RIS in a can! Love it!

Look - Pours oil black with a negligible fizzy head that dissipates quickly. Great creamy lacing.

Smell - Rich molasses and hearty malts, dark chocolate and sweet espresso. A tinge of fennel or black licorice.

Taste - Wow.. Fennel or black licorice followed by sweet creamy chocolate and then hearty roasted molasses, smoked and sweet. If you are into RIS style then this is most definitely your bag.

Mouthfeel - Rugged, a bit boozy here but otherwise quite enjoyable. Sticky and creamy and it sits like a meal.

Overall - Amazing brew, full of depth and character. Evolves as it warms and has a few tricks up its sleeve. Definitely not a brew for the weak!
