3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Portland brewery.
Obsidian Stout with coffee! The only way this could be better is if they had enhanced Black Butte. Oh wait, they did. Anyway. Pours black with a thick tan foamy head. Aroma of mocha, caramel, and christmasy spice. Slightly weak on the palate. Deep coffee taste to start, followed by chocolate. The coffee lingers.
