Oskar Blues Ten Fidy Imperial Stout

This imperial stout is from the Oskar Blues Brewery of Longmont, Colorado (they also now have a North Carolina brewery). The name of the beer appears to refer to its ABV which is 10.5%.

The beer pours black with a tall, thick, foamy head of brown. The aroma is dark roasted malts, mostly chocolate and char, with a bit of black licorice. The taste follows the aromas, lots of chocolate, cocoa, char, with a bit of anise in the finish. The beer drinks smooth and creamy, with a tingle of carbonation. The finish is dry and moderately bitter. The beer is warming, but never boozy. This is a very well done imperial stout.
