Deschutes Brewery Obsidian Stout
Hello beer lovers and welcome to another edition of the NorCal Beer Blog's brew review.
Tonight’s featured beer is Deschutes Brewery Obsidian Stout.
From the Deschutes Brewery website: “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.”
Let’s get started!
Appearance: Pours black with a large mocha brown colored head and great lacing.
Aroma: Dark chocolate, roasted malts, coffee, caramel and molasses.
Taste: Roasted malts, dark chocolate, coffee, slight caramel, some dark fruits and just a slight citrus and pine hop bitterness.
Overall: Roasty and delicious, Deschutes Brewery Obsidian Stout is smooth. This 6.4% ABV offering drinks bigger than the ABV suggests. Another solid beer from Deschutes Brewery!
