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.

ACHops' rating

4.3
ACHops (1566) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 1, 2013
12oz bottle poured into a pint glass. Pours dark black with a brownish tint. Thin mocha head that lingers. Aroma is lightly charred malts and earthy hops. Taste is creamy bitter black roasty malts. Rich but not overly so. Finishes hoppy and bitter. Nice low ABV (relatively speaking...), this is very easy drinking and sessionable. Not heavy bodied, which you might expect. For a straight up, plain old, not imperial, chocolate, coffee, belgian, whatever stout, this is as good as it gets.
