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.

cthomas2390 (228) - Colorado, USA - JUN 12, 2013
Pours black with a tight brown head. Aromas of chocolate and coffee, but floral and citrus hop notes do come thru as well. A hint of sweetness at first, but burnt toast and espresso follow. The astringency works fairly well with the bitter hops. Rich, thick mouthfeel.

colui72 (638) - HONG KONG - AUG 23, 2016
Black with a regular brown head, good lacing. Nose of roasted malts, coffee and chocolate. About the expected in the palate: roasted malts, coffee and chocolate, with good dry hops to balance. It doesn’t add anything to the stout universe, but it’s a damn good stereotypical stout!
