Wowsers, this is good.
Obsidian is a Blueberry Stout, a big bold beautiful blueberry Stout that pours an inky black with a purple tint and smells like a Cadbury’s Flake and a glass of Ribena.
Rather like an after school treat if yo can remember that far back.
Taking a mouthful there’s a great big digestive biscuit, rum and raisin chocolate bar, honeycomb and waffle malt and a very pleasing bitter and pithy snap of nettles and hedgerow from the hops.
They’re green and fresh and lightly herbal and they make bright slashes across that dark malt heart.
And then there’s the blueberries.
They’re plump and juicy and really rather sexy, adding a meaty berry pulp to the beer and making the finish rich and ripe and fruity.
Obsidian is delicious.
