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.

Courtesy Quake. Black/brown. Small brown cap. Roasty, chocolatey malt in the nose, not much else. Flavor adds bittersweet chocolate and a bit of coffee. Simple but good. Medium body, balanced carbonation. Decent, very drinkable.

golubj (1377) - San Mateo, California, USA - JUN 7, 2007
Bottle. Aroma of roasted malt, caramel malt, chocolate, and coffee. The flavor is mostly roasted malt and coffe, with a slightly creamy mouthfeel. Nice aftertaste, maybe a little too much coffee for me.

Tejas (955) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUN 4, 2007
Black with a big tan head. Smells and tastes sweet and a little roasty. Good stout but I think it really should be a sweet stout instead of just a stout. Itís a bit too sweet for my liking as an everyday stout. Still though itís solid.

boFNjackson (4195) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 24, 2007
Bottle... Poured a black tone with a fluffy, brown head. Roasty, malt, and chocolates on the nose. Really enjoyable and smooth palate, flavors of chocalate, malt, hops, caramel, vanilla bean and a bit leafy.. very smooth finish.

JMFG (1587) - Florida, USA - MAY 22, 2007
Black with a thick dark tan soapy head. Sweet aroma with some light roast notes, a bit of hops, too. Lighter palate. Light chocolate roast flavors over a slight hop middle and bitter finish. Wish I could get enough to give it a proper session.

nightrider (754) - encinitas, California, USA - MAY 22, 2007
Nice dark color with toasty mild chocolate flavors. a little carbonated on the palate. a lighter taste with not too much depth. Could be a bit smoother.
