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.

MadMan (495) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - APR 24, 2005
From notes taken at the Southwest Beer Festival in Scottsdale, Arizona: Had on draft. Black with a creamy beige head. Aroma of malt and chocolate. Flavors of coffee and dark chocolate with some licorice. Slight to more bitter finish. Smooth and creamy and not too sweet.

Really like this stout. Pours black with half in dark tan head. Smells like triple expresso. Nice roasted malt. I’ll be buying more of Obsidian.

Great Stout. Very dark and very dank! The coffee and chocolate taste are delicious. Beware though, the taste gets almost too intense after a while. Overall an A+ stout!

Nice - black color with a beige head. You can taste coffee, chocolate and it is very smooth with just enough hops to make it a very complex beverage. GREAT cold weather beer.

Not bad for an American Stout. A little strong right out of the bottle. Needs a little bit of air in order to mellow. Very strong coffee flavor but that lessens as the beer warms up.

jackamackson (127) - USA - MAR 21, 2005
nice dark black pour with a big tan foamy head. aroma is coffee, licorice, etc. taste is coffee, smoky, bitter at the end, but pretty sweet/sour as well. avg stout mouthfeel but kinda bubbly. this is a pretty good example of a stout, not amazing but pretty solid.

12oz - Strong smell of burnt coffee, malt, and chocolate. Black with a medium brown head that dissaptes quickly. Still a little lacing. Taste is smokey choco-malt coffee that lingers for a good amount of time. A nice drinkable stout that I will get again.
