While most of the beers available here at Hooters are run-of-the-mill brews . Note that the restaurant refers to their 12oz beers as Girl Size Beers and their 22oz beers as Man Size Beers. Of course, their sexist naming tactics failed to deter me from getting a reasonable 12oz glass of Deschutes Obsidian Stout.

*I'm not sure why my notes are incomplete, but if you feel disappointed, then you're in the same boat as me. While I don't remember my actual last impressions of the beer, the context clues suggest I ultimately thought it was just average tasting.

Deep, robust and richly rewarding, this is beer to linger over. Obsidian has distinct notes of espresso, chocolate, roasted malt and black barley, with just enough hop bite to cut the sweetness.

Malt: Pale, Crystal, Carapils, Munich, Black Barley, Roasted Barley, Wheat
Hops: Nugget, Millennium, Willamette, Northern Brewer
