Ten FIDY Imperial Stout brewed by Oskar Blues Brewery

Ten FIDY Imperial Stout brewed by Oskar Blues Brewery - Lyons, CO

This titanic, immensely viscous stout is loaded with inimitable flavors of chocolate-covered caramel and coffee and hide 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.

Beer Review from Beer Advocate:
Appearance- Poured into an 8 oz snifter this. It's as black as the ace of spades. The head is also a very dark coffee color and sticks around for a bit. Not even light can escape the surface of this beer.

Aroma- Sells like what you would expect from this style. Lots of chocolate upfront with a hint of hops. No trace of booze at all.

Taste - Mother of God.... It tastes strongly of chocolate and malty goodness. This beer has an alcohol content of 10.5% (hence the name "Ten FIDY"), but it is hardly present in the taste. Everything is balanced perfectly. Not too sweet. Not too bitter. Not too boozy. One of the best RIS's I've had.

Mouthfeel - It feels like velvet going down. Decent carbonation. One thing I will mention is that I think this beer is pretty filling. It would be difficult to drink more than two of these in a night....and expensive. I'm sure i would if i could though.

Over all, I love this beer. It has given me a new appropriation of the RIS family. I found a four pack of this at a grocery store on the East coast. Unfortunately it was about $17...I almost cried.

Oskar Blues History
Great canned beer? The term has been an oxymoron for craft beer lovers used to getting their full-flavored beers from bottles only. But in November of 2002 in the tiny town of Lyons, Colorado, Oskar Blues Brewery changed that by launching its “Canned Beer Apocalypse.”

The brewery began hand-canning its hoppy, assertive-but-elegant Dale’s Pale Ale on a table-top machine that sealed just one can at a time. The move made Oskar Blues the first US craft brewer to brew and can its own beer.

Why cans? “We thought the idea of our big, luscious pale ale in a can was hilarious,” recalls founder Dale Katechis. “And it made our beer immensely portable for outdoor enjoyment fun.” Katechis and his crew then discovered other bennies of aluminum cans. “Cans keep beer incredibly fresh by fully protecting it from light and oxygen.”

And unlike cans of old, the modern aluminum can is lined with a coating so beer and metal never touch. Cans are also easier to recycle, free of glass breakage issues, and less fuel-consuming to ship. (35% of the weight of a bottle of beer is the bottle itself.)
