COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Onyx is a rich, jet black imperial stout that has just arrived in time for winter. Base of British Maris Otter barley, British dark caramel malts, British chocolate malts and roasted barley. Hefty Dose of rolled oats which lends to a maddeningly silky mouthfeel. Kissed with brown sugar and smidgen of blackstrap molasses, Onyx is hopped with German magnum hops and British Golding to perfectly balance the broad roasted flavors.
