Beer Description:
Obsidian Stout is as black as the nearby volcanic flow from which it gets its name. It’s a deep and satisfying experience, with distinct notes of chocolate, espresso, roasted malt and black barley. It is robust and full, with a big roasted finish.

Obsidian, along with Mirror Pond and Black Butte, first set Deschutes on its renegade path of high-risk, high reward brewing. Any tour of great craft beer starts here.

Think of Obsidian as the malt yin to Mirror Pond’s hop yang, and the perfect beer to sit, contemplate and linger over.

"Black as midnight with a dark head. Deep, black chocolate aroma, wonderfully complex and clean. Hoppy and very bitter in the mouth, a great roasted finish. Sharp and dry. Great balance."
