Deschutes Obsidian Stout: Continuing my sampling of dark beers, and moving from Porters to Stouts, I begin the stout segment with the Deschutes Obsidian Stout. This beer is as black in color as beer can be. The head was nearly brown, nice and fluffy, but did fade away early on. There is a smoky, roast malt aroma, but it is not as strong as I would have expected. Flavor is intense roast malt, smoke and has a bitter rasp on the finish. Big long aftertaste. I can drink Guinness all day, I enjoy a porter now and then, but American Stouts are just a bit too much beer for me. I give the Obsidian a good rating in a style of beer I have yet to grow into.
