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.

Sans aucun doute l’un des meilleurs succès. Les plus magnifiquement dans le verre sont brun foncé profond, avec une tête nitro en cascade. Saveur de chocolat noir avec malt sombre. Le goût est soyeux lisse et crémeux. Doux, mais pas trop. Presque parfait. Magnifique bière. Sur le robinet à Blue Rock Pizza High Point, NC.

FreekyP is drinking an Obsidian Stout on nitro at Blue Rock, High Point NC. He thinks it is the best stout he has had in quite some time. The nitro pour brings out all best qualities of this beer. FreekyP thinks it may be the creamiest beer he has had in recollectable history. Unfortunately, recollectable history does not go that far back for FreekyP due to excessive consumption of malted beverages. This one strikes a perfect balance between roast and chocolate with espresso bitterness rising in the finish. FreekyP is impressed with the huge dollops of tan lace that are stuck to the sides of the glass as he consquarbles this beer. He thinks of heavenly thoughts, like midgets covered in chocolate syrup squirming in a trough of cotton balls. FreekyP has an extensive roster of issues which will not be discussed in this public forum, but he has an expert beer palate, and vehemently insists that this beer is "the shit". And so it is.
