Oskar Blues Barrel-Aged Ten FIDY Imperial Stout is Back for Winter 2019

Oskar Blues Brewery announces the seasonal return of Barrel-Aged Ten FIDY Imperial Stout. This massive 12.5% ABV roasty malt bomb will be distributed nationally on draft and in four-packs of 12 oz. cans. Barrel-Aged Ten FIDY season starts in mid-November and extends into the winter months of 2020 for your fireside sipping pleasure.

The brewing wizards at Oskar Blues fill bourbon barrels with Ten FIDY Imperial Stout and then patiently wait a full eight months while the wood works its magic. During that time, the classic stout is infused with deep, rich flavors of vanilla, bourbon and oak. For a big beer that’s layered with complexity, Barrel-Aged Ten FIDY is 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.”

To mark the return of Barrel-Aged Ten FIDY, Oskar Blues taprooms are throwing open the barrel-aged vaults on Black Friday, November 29, and releasing vintage beers from years past. Taprooms in Boulder, Colorado, Longmont, Colorado, and Brevard, North Carolina, will sell variety four-packs of rare or impossible-to-find barrel-aged varieties of Ten FIDY including: JAHvanilla, Salted Caramel, Chocolate Hazelnut Praline, Java and more.
