3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Dark beer with some reddish hues when held against the light. Frothy beige head. Nose of some sweetened coffee, chocolate and toasted grains. This is a very nice, full flavored stout with lots of bitter chocolate and coffee notes, some dark grains and a bit of sweetness with molasses and burnt caramel. The finish has some ash and a bit of coffee bean bitterness. I forgot how much I enjoyed this beer.

Aroma and taste were too sour for my taste, though it may be what you'd expect for a beer called Obsidian.

Bottle from Systembolaget. Roasted to burnt malt nose. Coffee, dark, red fruit and alcohol. Medium body. A bit oily. Soft carbonation. Sweet. Bitter ending. Roasted malt, some milk, smoke, hint of chocolate and caramel flavour. A bit to roasted flavour without a body to back it up, but quite good nonetheless.
