COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Onyx is a rich, jet black imperial stout that has just arrived in time for winter. Base of British Maris Otter barley, British dark caramel malts, British chocolate malts and roasted barley. Hefty Dose of rolled oats which lends to a maddeningly silky mouthfeel. Kissed with brown sugar and smidgen of blackstrap molasses, Onyx is hopped with German magnum hops and British Golding to perfectly balance the broad roasted flavors.

>> Awesome inky color with layers of espresso crema. Nose is savory, dark chocolate, cocoa, vanilla. Taste is silky, spicy, meted dark chocolate, nicely bitter, rich but not sugary/sticky. Easy to drink, thanks oats. Simple, solid, repete.

On tap @ Toronado: Poured a dirty used motor oil black with a thin patches of foam scattered about. As for the aroma, there is hardly anything to speak about so that’s the reason for my low score of 6 on aroma. The flavor is odious with a very astringent taste of medicine and a strong delivery of alcohol that almost seems overbearing. The flavor also brings about roasty malt, but I’m unable to taste the oatmeal even though the bartender proclaimed that it was rich with oats—epic failure on her behalf.

Thanks to someone for sharing at bu11zeye’s 10,000th rating tasting. I believe it was shared by bman1113vr, but I may be wrong. The beer pours a dark brown to black color with a tan head. The aroma has a ton of chocolate and roasted malt in it. The flavor is more of the same, with the chocolate and roasted malt complimented by some smoked notes. The beer is fairly sweet overall and the alcohol is fairly well hidden. Thick mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Draft. Black beer with a brown head. Chocolate and light nutty aroma. Chocolate and toffee flavor with malt. Medium-plus bodied. Chooclate and toffee lingers with malt and light butterscotch. Light roastiness creeps in.
