4 oz. pour into snifter

From notes. Consumed at the Tasty Weasel Taproom following the 2011 Tour de Cure in August. Excellent stop after a quick 60 mile bike ride for a great cause!

L: Opaque motor oil. Smooth, creamy one-quarter fingernail head. Looks absolutely amazing!

S: Sweet chocolate with a hint of licorice and espresso. Strong oak characteristic that is quite welcoming.

T: Bitter chocolate, bold espresso, and figs straight to well-balanced vanilla and oak overtones. Hint of all-spice and cinnamon. Quite smooth and very enjoyable. I am a fan!

M: Thick and rich (almost like dessert in a glass), yet very well put-together. Low carbonation.

O: Again, a very nice rendition to a delightful Front Range classic and one of my personal favorites! Not overly complex, but smooth and very balanced. My favorite part of this beer experience was the married couple of 20+ years that stopped into the Tasty Weasel near the end of this particular visit. The wife was a beer snob and the husband had recently converted from drinking Classic Budweiser for the greater majority of his life. Like me, the wife had ridden in the Tour de Cure just a couple of hours earlier and was looking for a refreshing way to cap-off the day. She approached the bar and ordered two regular Ten Fidy’s before heading to the bathroom to change clothes. Her husband sat down beside me as the bartender set down my Oh’kd Ten Fidy. Long story, short, the bartender ended up pouring the happy couple a taster of this wonderful beer and as the snifter hit the husbands lips, his eyes lit up like a kid on Christmas morning. He was so filled with joy that he could barely contain himself. Upon his wife’s return to the bar, he mentioned, "I wish you would have introduced me to beers like this a long time ago." The wife simply responded, "Honey, how do you think I’ve been happily married to you for so long?"

Got a pint of this at Tasty Weasel. As a fan of Ten Fidy I was very excited to try this... and not at all disappointed!

A: Black (hint of brown) with a thin, tan head. Good lacing.
S: Light oak / vanilla.
T: Oak/coffee/chocolate/vanilla. Smooth finish with a hint of toffee. Overall, the taste is complex but the various elements are subtle-- nothing dominates or jumps out alone. As it warmed, bourbon came through softly, which is nice, I think. Hops comes through too, but not as much as the high IBU would indicate.
MF: Creamy. Semi-thick. A slight stickiness. Smooth. No alcohol burn.
O: Awesome! Drinking this beer is an experience. You can really take your time, savor it and study it.
