Oskar Blues Brewery (Longmont, Colorado) has officially announced that it will begin the annual Limited Release of Barrel-Aged Ten FIDY Imperial Stout in mid-November 2019.
Returning to satisfy all your “fireside sipping” needs this winter, Barrel-Aged Ten FIDY is what happens when the brewers at Oskar Blues age Ten FIDY Imperial Stout in select bourbon barrels for “a full eight months.” This treatment infuses the brewery’s fan-favorite Imperial Stout with “deep, rich flavors of vanilla, Bourbon and oak.” Although it comes in at a big ol’ 12.5% ABV, stout lovers can expect Barrel-Aged Ten FIDY to be “balanced and temperate on the palate, the extended stay in-barrel ensuring a smooth, warm drinking experience perfect for long, cold winter nights.”
“Ten FIDY is a complicated beer for our brewers but they really dig into the behemoth task of delivering a big-time stout,” said Tim Matthews, Head of Brewing Operations for Oskar Blues Brewery. “Barrel-aging ups the ante even further – ramping up the chocolate, coffee and roasted notes to the maximum.”
The 2019 release of Barrel-Aged Ten FIDY is scheduled to roll out in mid-November 2019 and will stick around into the winter months of 2020. You can expect to find this Limited Release available in 4-packs of 12 oz. cans and on draft at select craft beer-friendly establishments located in Alabama, Florida, Colorado, North Carolina, Texas and throughout the rest of Oskar Blues Brewery’s distribution area.
