This is an ultra black, thick brew. Tan head with a decent lace. Grain and a touch of smoke and coffee in the smell. Firm bitterness in the taste. Some underlying thick smoothness. Bitter and powerful. Excellent brew.

If Guinness had a bigger, badder, stronger, better looking twin brother Obsidian would be it.
