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.

Great stout that I can find most stores. It has a balanced taste that is easy to drink without compromising flavor.

Vignale (1812) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JAN 13, 2014
Flaska från Galatea via SBs beställningssortiment. Riktigt fin balans mellan torr och kärva smaker av tjära, choklad och kaffe och maltsöta smaker av molass, torkad mörk frukt, svarta bär och svart bröd. Len munkänsla, relativt lättdrucken. Stora rejäla smaker. En riktigt bra stout.

Solid stout, nice roast and good balance. Not a show stopper but definitely one to look out for.

Doghair (243) - Illinois, USA - JAN 18, 2014
UPDATED: JAN 25, 2014 The aroma is dark malt and chocolate. A big chocolate smell as it warms. The taste is intense dark roasted malt and dark baking chocolate. Flavors are clean and defined. Great beer.

CacheManyHose (110) - HONG KONG - JAN 30, 2014
Pours an inky opaque brown-black with tan head and thick chunky lacing. Smells of hops, spice, coffee, a bit of barley wine taste. Tastes of deep bitter hops, burnt malt, coffee, liquorice, quite sharp and acidic. Body is crisp and dry with small carbonation. Nice deep bitter stout.

HKdIPA (129) - HONG KONG - JAN 30, 2014
Solid black pour with very thin tan head. Mild roasted coffee and chocolate aroma. Thin palate. Taste is very acidic and bitter to start, then chocolate and bitter dry finish. Not bad but there are better options in HK.

Bottle. Inky black with chocolate colored large spongy head, chocolate-coffee aroma, well balanced slightly bitter chocolate taste with roasted malt at the background, long finish. Great stout!
