3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
I can tell that Oregonians are out of step with the usual beer drinkers by seeing the average rating here--3.81. I think in Oregon it would be closer to 4.8. We love stouts, and this one is loved more than the rest. But to me it’s got too much dark malt and is cloying and syrupy. I’d take a Shakespeare instead, thank you.

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