Ten FIDY strikes GOLD in 2009 World Beer Championships

Oskar Blues Brewery Ten Fidy Imperial Stout.

Opaque muddy black brown color with a superfine fine russet amber mousse. Inviting aromas of high cocoa chocolate, caramel, and dried fruits follow through on a very soft, almost oily entry to a dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body with a remarkably smooth mouthfeel and subtle layers of flavors. Finishes with a long chocolate covered espresso bean fade. A dangerously drinkable imperial stout.
