Fidy hands down!
how can you even compare Narwhal to 10.50...
havent had TenFidy in a while, last one I had was about a year old, terrible beer with a year on it, tasted like alcoholic chocolate milk with no roast whatsoever, and since the roast is my favorite part of a stout this was a problem for me. Narwhal on the other hand keeps getting better over time.
This is easy. Take your glass of narwhal and tip it under some light. You will see lots of brownish light coming through at the edge. You should be seeing lots of ruby highlights as with 10.50.
I had a ten fidy and narwhal the other night. Ten Fidy my a mile and it's not even close.
Narwhal isnt in the same ballpark as Ten Fidy. Maybe with some age on it, but Ten Fidy has a big grape component while Narwhal has a black licorice flavor. Both great, but Ten Fidy all day
Personally I didn't care at all for ten fidy. Narwhal is a solid beer at a great value but doesn't blow me away.
The smart money is on brooklyn black chocolate stout in my humble opinion though.
I'll take BBCS all day!!
Plead the fifth is the dark horse in this competition...
Cept its almost twice the price of the previously mentioned Narwhale and Brooklyn BCS.
these average at best (Pt5 and Ten Fidy) Imp stout cases are overpriced no doubt.
The only reason I'm not hating on Yeti is the Oak aged version almost makes up for the lack of quality priced product.
It is a Sierra Nevada. I love most of their beers, but my stomach disagrees. No other brewery does this to me.
Narwhal= cost efficient and great brew
Tenfidy = awesome brew and worth the cost if you have the disposable income.
10fidy is a way gnarlier beer brah...but bros on a budget be hitting up that Narwhal price point like woah
Iv'e had the opportunity to try both of these great beers. However, with a 4-pack of Narwhal going for $7.99 vs. a 4-pack of TenFIDY at $14.99 ...It's a very easy decision.
It's the aroma of the TenFidy is what really ranks it higher than Narwhal for me.. I never had a TenFidy up until this most recent batch has been released beginning of October and boy was I blown away. It smelled like dark cherries. The aroma of the cherries plus the chocolate and roasted flavors combined = bliss. I think the Narwhal is just a bit too thin for my kind of stout.
