Beer Review: Oskar Blues Ten Fidy

In Imperial Stout, Reviews on December 4, 2010 at 12:35 pm

More cans!  After finishing these two 10 percenters in a can, it’s hard to suppress the urge to smash it against something (your head), but try and resist, or at least practice before you try it in public.  Ten Fidy, is a beast wrapped in aluminum.  Here’s my review:

Comes out of the can like motor oil.  Thick and black but produces a bit of dark brown foam to top it off.  Don’t pour it in your car.

Strong aromas of dark fruit, fig, molasses, chocolate, coffee, wood and smoke.

The thick and sweet molasses comes through first with an oily arrival of oak, vanilla, chocolate, coffee, raisins, figs and smoke, with a bittersweet coffee finish.

Awesome Imperial Stout, and you can take it hiking, to the beach, the pool, although I wouldn’t advise shotguning it… would I?

This is 10% in a can done right.  Enjoy this after dinner, with a cigar and toss out that bourbon or peaty single malt.  This stout is rich satisfying and can also double as your coffee, espresso and after dinner drink as well.

Style: Imperial Stout

ABV: 10%

Cheers!
