Brewery: Deschutes Brewery
Style: Imperial Stout
A deep, dark Imperial Stout, The Abyss has almost immeasurable depth and complexity. Hints of molasses, licorice and other alluring flavours make it something not just to quaff, but contemplate.
As for the great "drink it now or let it age" debate, we stand clearly on the fence. Distinct and delicious on release, the flavours meld and fuse into an entirely different pleasure after a year or more in the cellar.
