Deschutes The Abyss
This dark Imperial Stout, has incredible depth and complexity.
It poured an obsidian black. The Abyss is aged in bourbon whiskey barrels and brewed with licorice and molasses. This 11% beer had barrel character, but it was never overpowering. Sweet and dark chocolate malts start of the sip, while the finish brings out the bourbon vanilla and coffee.
Light nuances of oak and vanilla and a kiss of bourbon gave it great complexity. It’s definitely on par with a fine dark rum or bourbon as a mature sipper.
Thick and viscous, it definitely lives up to its reputation.
