Just like you, but different
Oskar Blues Ten FIDY beer that I’ve coveted for a while, one of those elusive and wanty beers, like Pliny the anything, or some of the other beers that I’ll never get to in the near future. A big Stout, small can,
This dog’ll hunt
355ml can of a beer that has 65 IBU, That’s 310 calories a serve size and with 10.5% ABV it’s 2.94 standard drinks… its a big beer….
Ten FIDY Imperial Stout – This titanic, immensely viscous stout is loaded with inimitable flavors of chocolate-covered caramel and coffee and hide a hefty 65 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.
So, What could possibly go wrong? Love the can doodles, and that’s before you start. even down to the canned by Gristopher Robins’ …
Quite a strong aroma when you crack that lid, roasted burt.
Woof! That’s a full noise full sound beer. Big bitter, much more than the 65 IBU suggests, a giant mount feel, Sweetness in spades, and a coating of bitterness/dryness on the tongue.
It’s everything that I thought it might be, a luxurious, decadent and accomplished bit of beering.
The pdubyah-o-meter rates this as 9 of its things from the thing. Nearer to 10 than a 9, but there are no half marks, that’s like nearly winning lotto. This is something I can tick off the list with a big smile. I thought that it could have done with being softer around the edges where it’s quite noticeable roughness chips in a bit. It doesn’t carry it’s alcohol well either, and you know you’ve got a thing going on. But still, Ten FIDY ….
The only thing I might add to all that is, just how many variations on this beer are there? and whilst it good to milk it, there must be a point where it’s labouring the point.

Imperial stouts are usually extremely dark brown to black in color with flavors that are intensely malty, deeply roasted and sometimes with accents of dark fruit (raisin, fig) or milk sourness. The bitterness is typically medium and often the low sie of that. Imperial stouts are strong and often exceed 8% by volume.
