From Oskar Blues:
News flash.... Summer is comin' to a close. That means fall, colder weather, shorter days... sad times indeed. BUT if there's one thing that can warm you (and your belly) up it's the release of Oskar Blues Brewery's giant fuhCAN Ten FIDY Imperial Stout.
The 10.5% ABV half-baked, but fully-roasted dark mouth bomb is consistently rated as one of the best of its style around (100 ratings from both Beer Advocate and Rate Beer) and the 2016 edition is just as kickass as usual.
"Ten FIDY is the perfect illustration of the how good the malt we use really is," Tim Mathews,
said. "Shipped direct to the brewery from the Simpsons Malthouse in the UK; the roast, chocolate, espresso, & burnt sugar really pop. It's a bear to brew and tests the brewer at every step, but all the sweat and tears are worth it!"
Ten FIDY is a complex beer. Like a Rubik's Cube. It continually brings a new experience for the drinker every time. Each sip or sniff can evoke a different appearance, aroma, and mouthfeel while never departing from the quality and consistency that Oskar Blues Brewery brings to every batch of beer.
It's complicated and that's a good thing.
This is an immensely viscous stout loaded with inimitable flavors of chocolate-covered caramel and coffee underneath a smooth blanket of malt. This brew is constructed with colossal amounts of two-row malt, chocolate malt, roasted barley, flaked oats and hops. And at 10.5% ABV you won't forget you're drinking a big, bold, badass beer that is #NeverTheSameStout.
Look for Ten FIDY in four-pack, 12-ounce cans and on draft in all 50 states where Oskar Blues Brewery is sold from September through March only.(check out our Beer Finder at www.oskarblues.com/beerFinder).
