2016 Deschutes The Abyss

gone again...

2016 Deschutes The Abyss Reserve...$14.99 / 22oz

Barrel Ageing: (50%) 12 Months in Bourbon, Oregon Oak, Pinot Noir
A deep, dark Imperial Stout, The Abyss has almost immeasurable depth and complexity. Hints of molasses, licorice and other alluring flavors 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 flavors meld and fuse into an entirely different pleasure after a year or more in the cellar.

we got in 3 more cases and gone again. Try calling Ballwin, they might still have some though.
