Into The Abyss

Brian Golden - Tuesday, November 19, 2013

What a treat it was to try a four year vertical of Deschutes' popular "The Abyss" Double Imperial Stout at Bittercreek last night.  They broke out kegs of 2010, 2011, 2012 and the newly released 2013 for side by side comparisons, and the only thing more impressive than the beer was the crowd that turned out.  Beer lovers young and old sat shoulder to shoulder and marveled at the subtle nuances brought out by cellar aging, while enjoying the dense, rich chocolaty flavors and aromas that are the hallmark of this world class beer.

Rumor has it the crew at Bittercreek is looking to go for a five year vertical next year, so lets get the countdown started!  And if you are looking to try it for the first time, the 2013 version is available starting today at select craft beer retailers.  It will be gone in a flash, so get yours today!
