22oz bottle. 'Obadiah Poundage' sounds about as made up a name as you can get.

This beer pours a sort of murky, very, very dark brown colour, with one weak finger of bubbly, and somewhat foamy beige head, which leaves some decent bleeding paint swath lace around the glass as things quickly subside.

It smells of roasted caramel malt, bittersweet chocolate, an oily nuttiness, a bit of wet ash, faint dark fruit notes, and a wisp of earthy, weedy hops. The taste is more of the same - a heady toasty, and mildly biscuity caramel malt sweetness, sour cream-laced medium dark cocoa powder, a hint of cold coffee, wet bar-top nuts, and earthy, sort of dirty-seeming leafy, weedy hops.

The bubbles are pretty low-key, hardly making any sort of ingress in palate probing, the body a sturdy medium weight, and fairly smooth, with a nicely understated burgeoning creaminess. It finishes just on the sweet side, the middling sour and hopping essences barely holding on in the face of the lingering nutty, chocolaty, and roasty malt.

An interesting, and purportedly believable take on the brews made a few centuries ago in London - so one wonders aloud why this was added here as the American version of the style, Yankee hegemony aside? Right, given that, there isn't any reason. ANY-way, given the recent demise of Boardwalk Empire, this kind of reminds me of what they might have been drinking, if they weren't so into the rum and whisky.

On tap at post street ale house

Nice dark brown with a sheet of light cocoa powder foam. Smells of sweet malts and some nutty character. Some toast and Graham on the nose. Flavor is sweet cocoa, leather, some rye bread a bit of coffee and some pleasant soil hints.medium on full bodied with a good soft carb and some dryness on a mostly watering finish. I really fund the mouth feel here outstanding.
Nice beer.
