Oskar Blues Ten Fidy-Bourbon Barrel Aged 2015

BA Ten Fidy12.9% ABV. A bourbon barrel-aged Russian Imperial Stout from Oskar Blues Grill & Brew in Lyons, CO. I landed this gem through a very dear friend of mine who happened to work for a major beer distributor in the Denver area. There were only a few cases under my friend’s account. So thank you for the rare treat and I had it over Christmas! Pours deep dark giving off a thickness to the body along with a one-finger tan mocha head with great lacing that lasts well throughout the session. Upfront the nose picks up some bourbon, hints of black licorice and coffee, and sweet dark chocolate. Dark and roasty malts, dark fruit, cocoa nibs, fudge, raisins, oat grains, and smooth bourbon overwhelms the tongue. Great flavors all around! Very thick mouthfeel, silky smooth and great carbonation throughout that coats the mouth very well. This was an amazing beer and I wish I had more than just a couple hands. That’s for another time I guess. theBeerAuthority: A
