This is our second review of an Oskar Blues beer. We are really starting to take a liking to Oskar Blues around the shop. Here's why...
The Oskar Blues Ten Fidy is a bold Imperial stout with 10.5% ABV brewed in Longmont, Colorado. When you start pouring this stout you will think you opened a can of motor oil. It is almost intimidating.
Here's the review:
Aroma: Dandelion, Caramel, Roasted Apple, Cocoa nibs, complex
Palate: Glossy and clean dark chocolate, chocolate chip cookie dough, nougat, dark roasted coffee, and a hint of lime, no burn here despite the high alcohol level, semi-sweet
Finish: never-ending chocolate waterfall (think Willy Wonka), red pepper spice burn, wet mouthfeel, and cocoa powder
Overall: Beautifully floral, fruit/chocolate nose, with a heavy handed yet elegant dark chocolate/coffee palate. Phenomenal. 7/7
