Commercial Description

Oskar Blues Ten FIDY Imperial Stout - Now (11-21-07) available in cans, our winter seasonal beer is immensely viscous and loaded with neck-deep flavors of chocolate, malt, coffee, cocoa and oats.

It's the beer equivalent of decadently rich milkshake made with malted-milk balls and Heaven’s best chocolate ice cream. Ten FIDY is about 10% ABV and is made with enormous amounts of two-row malts, chocolate malts, roasted barley, flaked oats and hops. Its huge-but-comforting flavors hide a whopping 98 IBUs that are deftly tucked underneath the beer’s mountains of malty goodness.

Ten FIDY is the ultimate Rocky Mountain winter warmer, and further proof of the creative muscle of our beloved brewing staff. Look for fourpacks of Ten FIDY in select beer stores in Colorado. Out of state? We hope to send a few cases to a few of our other states in early '08.

    Poured a bit heavy-handed from the 12oz can into a Flying Fish tumbler, it pours like used motor oil, thick and black. A beautiful, dark chocolate-brown creamy looking 1 1/2 finger head springs up. It slowly settles to a creamy cap leaving behind tons of thick, sticky, frilly looking lace. Really beautiful.

    The appearance of the body reveals NOTHING! I don't see any highlights, the body is light absorbing. One of the prettier stouts I've seen yet.

    The aroma is mind boggling! I immediately notice chocolate, molasses, malt balls and a bourbon-y alcohol presence. There are also undertones of coffee and a ever-so-slight smell that reminds me of cheap pink bubblegum!!! It's very complex and alluring.

    Time of the tasting! *sip* WOW! Sweet/bitter dark chocolate and some rum/bourbon mingling with rich coffee and molasses up front. A strong hop bite is immediately subdued by the huge sweet, toasted, biscuity malts. It finishes with a baking chocolate and light brown sugar presence that lingers mid-tongue. It's rounded out by a light comforting alcohol warming sensation in the upper chest. Every sip leaves a ring on the glass showing my progress and a viscous, brownish residue sticks to the sides of the glass like syrup.

    The mouth-feel is exquisite... Thick, oily, creamy and chewy. Mild carbonation tingles the tongue. It coats the palate and leaves a butter-like feeling in the mouth. Very rich and full-bodied.

    Overall, this is an incredible stout that embodies everything I hope for in a stout. Not overly sweet, no harsh bitterness, well balanced and that creamy and "Chewy" texture that is the mark of a great stout! Best beer from a can I've ever had. Oscar Blues has not disappointed me yet!

    Side note: My younger brother (who doesn't like stouts) was curious enough to give it a try... He was amazed at the smell and flavors of this beer. He gives it 2-thumbs up, 5-stars, 99 out of a hundred, you get the picture!
    and I concur.
