A Note on This Beer
Deschutes fans become Deschutes fans because of classic Dark Beers like Black Butte Porter and Obsidian Stout.
But, they become fans for life once they taste the 43x GABF award-winners’ limited release, Barrel-Aged masterpiece, The Abyss.
For those folks, the oaky-cherry and sweet molasses sipper needs no introduction ‘cause this massive brew has an even bigger legacy:
Winner of 8 Gold Medals, including the World Beer Awards and World Beer Championships.
Earth-shattering ratings with a whopping 100/100 on BeerAdvocate; 4.31 on Tavour; and a massive 4.20 on Untappd!
World-class Stout ranked in the Top 50 Imperial Stouts in the World on BeerAdvocate.
But how did this boozy, barrel-aged sipper achieve such legendary status?
First, the brewers loaded this 11.2% ABV behemoth with a soul-shaking amount of blackstrap molasses, licorice, real cherry bark, and whole vanilla beans. Then, they aged half the batch for 12 months in New American Oak, Oregon Red Wine, and Bourbon Barrels, injecting its decadent layers with a distinct jammy dryness and warm, caramel depth.
Finally, they blended both versions together. The result is massive waves of silky ganache, booze-soaked cherries, and an oaky vanilla softness that will make even the most experienced Stout lover green with envy.
So, grab your bottle of The Abyss 2019 now and, like Ken D. on UT, you’ll become a fan for life:
“Every year. No exceptions.”
