Bottle to tulip.

A - Black with a thin layer of light brown head.

S - Roast, some chocolate and lighter toasted oak aromas with some spice.

T - Roast and char up front, giving way to some chocolate, woody/oak notes and a touch of spice. Some warming throughout.

M - Medium body. Moderate carbonation.

O - Fairly average overall but not bad relative to Cameron's past efforts at barrel aging. Nice to see an improvement.

650 ml bottle picked up from the lcbo which was poured into a pint glass at about 50 degrees.

A - Pours a deep black with no visible light penetration when held up to the light, caramel light head about half an inch thick which falls quickly into a thin ring which holds over time. No long term lacing.

S - Scent is heavily centred on roasted malts scents of dark chocolate and caramel with a hint of alcohol, limited coffee undertones.

T - A quick one-two to your tongue from an earthy coffee flavor and very dark chocolate, alcohol comes in to round out the major flavors. Lesser flavors of smoky wood and caramel are present

M - This beer sits very heavy on the palate but feels slick unlike some porters, almost like a beer oil but it works very well so the stong flavors don't overpower you.

Obisidian is a great name for this beer, it is similar to many porters in basic flavors but those flavors are much more pronounced and crisp while nearly hiding is 9.2% ABV
