Deschutes Obsidian Stout

The Americas Best Stout 2014

“Very dark appearance. Nose is chocolate, metallic. Taste is oak, smoked, chocolatey, burnt coffee; dryness is espresso like. Dry finish.”

World's Best Stout 2013

“Chocolate and coffee aroma with a touch of hops. Good medium body, bittersweet chocolate and burnt toast. Hop bitterness and dark malts blend in perfect harmony.”

World's Best Dry Stout 2012

“Beautifully nutty, roasted coffee notes and campfires on the nose. Very soft on the palate, a tinge of floral hops, complex earthy tones, good medium body with a dry finish.”

World's Best Dry Stout 2011

“Jet black, tan head. Oatmeal and chocolate aroma. Roasted coffee beans. Bitter burnt toast, chocolate flavours, and rich malt. Subtle roast and worty, full, rich. Chocolate cake. Decent layering.”

The Americas Best Dry Stout 2010

World's Best Stout & Porter 2007

“Black as midnight with a dark head. Deep, black chocolate aroma, wonderfully complex and clean. Roasted chestnuts, tamarillo skins, chocolate, roast vegetables. Hoppy and very bitter in the mouth, a great roasted finish. Sharp and
dry. Great balance.”
