Deschutes Obsidian Stout

This 6.4% ABV stout is from the Deschutes Brewery in Bend, Oregon on the banks of the Deschutes River.

The beer pours black, staying opaque even when held to the light. There is a good inch of somewhat creamy light brown foam. The aroma is dark roasted malts, lots of pleasant char. The taste follows the aromas, nicely charred, adding in very dark chocolate and a touch of coffee. The finish is moderately bitter, like cold coffee. It drinks smooth, but easy, with a subtle tingle of carbonation. Quite nice.
