From time to time here at blocland we will feature a beer worthy of note. For this initial piece we will be discussing Deschutes Brewing “The Abyss”.
This is a truly remarkable imperial stout. The focus of this ale is an overwhelming amount of flavor profiles. Coffee, chocolate, licorice, molasses, cherry, deep stone fruit notes all abound. This is a potent beverage at a robust 11.25% abv. The bottle shown is from 2010 so the flavors have finished melding and smooth drinkability will surely prevail. These run about $20 for a 22 oz bottle. Well worth the hefty price tag. If at all possible age this gem. Prost!
