Beer Diary: The Abyss 2016 Reserve (Deschutes Brewery)
Wow, pretty bummed with this. Up front there's bitter licorice and sour cherry, followed by a little bit of vanilla from the bourbon barrels. As it is warming up/the 11% abv is kicking in, I am finding it slightly more palatable; but for the cost and the high rating on sites like beeradvocate, I expected WAY more. Disappointing.
