Oskar Blues Brewery Ten Fidy Imperial Stout
Hello beer lovers and welcome to another edition of the NorCal Beer Blog's brew review.
Tonight’s featured beer is Oskar Blues Brewery Ten Fidy Imperial Stout.
From the Oskar Blues Brewery website: “This titanic, immensely viscous stout is loaded with inimitable flavors of chocolate-covered caramel and coffee and hides a hefty 98 IBUs underneath the smooth blanket of malt. Ten FIDY (10.5% ABV) is made with enormous amounts of two-row malt, chocolate malt, roasted barley, flaked oats and hops. Ten FIDY is the ultimate celebration of dark malts and boundary-stretching beer.”
Let’s get started!
Appearance: Pours black with a large light brown head and leaves loads of lacing.
Aroma: Roasted malt, dark chocolate, toffee, roasted coffee and light caramel.
Taste: Bitter dark chocolate, roasted malts, molasses, toffee, hints of coffee and dark fruits.
Overall: Thick, smooth and creamy, Oskar Blues Brewery Ten Fidy Imperial Stout is delicious. This 10.5% ABV offering is very good and absolutely worth a try.
