3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: AUG 23, 2014 On nitro, poured into a shaker. Being on nitro, the aroma was mostly muted, but what did come through was a tobacco hint, an espresso note, and a slight grass aroma. Of course, aided by the nitro, this pours a beautiful black body with a very soft velvet, marshmallow head - tan in color - which sticks around forever and leaves a heavy spray of lace all over the empty glass. The taste is a nice blend of medium light sweet and medium light bitter with flavors of espresso, grass, some ash-like quality, toasted grain, nuts, and chocolate milk. Itís a pretty slcik texture with a medium full body and an unnoticed / impossibly smooth carbonation. As it mellows out, some caramel starts to show up, along with a note of pine, at the finish, but itís mostly espresso.which sticks around in the aftertaste with notes of cherry and dark chocolate.

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