COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Deep, robust and richly rewarding, this is beer to linger over. Obsidian has distinct notes of espresso, chocolate, roasted malt and black barley, with just enough hop bite to cut the sweetness.

Roasted malt and oily velvet aroma. Pitch black in color. Luscious, oily and velvety mouthfeel, very full bodied. Malty flavor echoes with port wine, dried fruits, spicy hops and bubble gum. Avery nice stout, indeed. Thanks to Andre for the sample!

AlchemistZ (493) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - OCT 11, 2004
Black, opaque beer with a well-sustained dark tan head atop. Aroma is oily, sweet and intense with dark fruit, herbs and licorice. Flavor is bready, cotton candy, burnt malt sugar, caramel and licorice. Body is solidly med/full. This stout drinks incredibly well except for it is slightly too carbonic, even at the end of the pint.

beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - OCT 3, 2004
Pours perfect for the style, black with a tall tan head that leaves nice lacing on the glass. Roasty sharp chocolate/coffee aroma. Taste runs bitter throughout with a strong coffee finish. A smooth stout with a medium body, roasty taste, and long lasting coffee bitterness left behind.

Aroma is malty and choclatey. Malt also present. Pours a dark black with light brown head. Flavor is slightly accidic,. Warming and full in flavor, choclate and roast come through, bitter coffeeish finish. A very nice beer. Thanks once again to Indiana Red, who IS the man!
