Deschutes Brewery Launches new Imperial Stout: The Abyss
Dec 01,2006 00:00
In 2005, Deschutes Brewery officially launched its Reserve Series with Mirror Mirror, a delicious oak-aged barley wine loosely based on a double batch of Mirror Pond Pale Ale. This year our brewers decided to experiment with an Imperial Stout, appropriately named The Abyss after its dark, deep and mysterious flavor experience.
The Abyss has immeasurable depth inviting you to explore and discover its rich, complex profile. Hints of molasses, licorice and other alluring flavors draw you in further and further with each sip. And at 11% alcohol by volume, you will want to slowly savor each and every ounce.
December 1, 2006 marks the release date of this rare and eclectic ale. Available in wax-dipped 22-ounce bottles and on draft at select establishments.
Deschutes Brewery’s 2005 Reserve, Mirror Mirror, received a Gold Medal (94 points) at the 2006 World Beer Championships and a Bronze Medal at the 2006 Australian International Beer Awards. Brewing handcrafted ales for your enjoyment since 1988.
