Drink of the Week: Deschutes Brewery’s The Abyss

With our Sept/Oct beer issue winding down, we’re raising a final glass to each of the 50 brews featured in our cover story. From Alaska to Maine and every state in between, contributing editor Joshua Bernstein sipped his way across America to pick a single beer that best represents each state, and today's Drink of the Week—The Abyss from Deschutes Brewery—does Imbibe’s home state’s suds scene proud. An annual release from one of Oregon’s most beloved breweries, this inky imperial stout offers up layer after layer of smoky-sweetness with notes of black licorice, molasses and dark dried fruits. Keep an eye out for it in the coming weeks when it makes its annual appearance across the country, and watch your mailboxes and local stores for our next issue (due out next week).
