Oskar Blues Brewery (Longmont, Colorado & Brevard, North Carolina) recently announced that it will begin the limited release of Barrel-Aged Ten FIDY on November 11.
The long-standing and highly-respected Ten FIDY Imperial Stout is once again experiencing a bit of an upgrade after the brewers at Oskar Blues decided to lovingly “[stash] it in a blend of Buffalo Trace and Heaven Hill bourbon barrels for a minimum of eight months.” Now roused from its rest, the limited release Barrel-Aged Ten FIDY (12.9% ABV) has emerged as “a cool and drinkable concoction that gets more complex with each sip.”
“Aged through four seasons and from a blend of the top bourbons around, this Ten FIDY has morphed into a monster of cranked up flavor,” said Head of Brewing Operations Tim Matthews. “This stout is loaded with inimitable flavors consisting of espresso, burnt sugar, rich chocolate and caramel notes, which are combined with the vanilla, oak and bourbon flavors that have been smoothed out from maturation.”
Barrel-Aged Ten FIDY will officially release on November 11 and hang around while supplies last. You can look for this Limited Release offering to be available in 19.2 oz. stovepipe cans and on draft at select craft beer establishments located in Alabama, Florida, Colorado, North Carolina, Texas and throughout the rest of Oskar Blues Brewery’s nationwide distribution area. Prost!
