Commercial description:

This imperial stout is accented with blackstrap molasses, vanilla beans, cherry bark, and brewer’s licorice straight from Italy. The heart and soul of our Reserve Series, The Abyss is partially aged for six months in barrels that once housed Bourbon, Oregon Oak, and Pinot Noir. It is as profound, infinite, and unfathomable as its name suggests. 12.6% ABV

Deschutes Brewery is located at 210 NW 11th Ave in Portland and 1044 NW Bond Street in Bend, OR.
