4.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Good looking brew, black as night with a nice brown head and good lacing.
Smells great. Good roasty and burnt aromas of roasted barley, a little sweet malt character.
Taste wise this is one of the best stouts I’ve had in a long time, it’s downright fantastic. Great burnt, smoky and roasty character, a bit of chocolate, great coffee flavors, and a bold hoppiness that add just the right amount of bitterness.
Body is also wonderful, very thick and rich, acrid bitter and roasted barley aftertaste, perfect amount of carbonation. For a pretty low ABV American stout this beer has incredibly big body and flavor.
This beer is just fantastic. Deschutes continues to impress me every time I try another one of their delicious beers.
It pours black with a tan head. It has moderate coffee aroma. Also hints of chocolate and dark roasted coffee flavors. Spicy elements and slightly burnt notes. charlotte (5387) - rødovre, DENMARK - JUL 10, 2017

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.

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.
