Spicy and chocolately aroma. Super dark brown pour with brown head. Dark chocolate, molasses, oats, and sweet chocolate finish. Very chewy beer. Through he description I wasn't sure if it's like it. But I love it. culchiem (4461) - Berlin, GERMANY - MAY 2, 2018

Received as a gift. Dark beer with notes of chocolate and licorice. I found it to have a slight bite but a good beer nonetheless.

honestly, not a fan of this beer. Too much licorice for me to handle. Just don't enjoy that flavor profile.

February 2018 - Friday bottleshare at Partizan Brewery. Huge thanks to Scoopy for this big want. As 'Deschutes The Abyss', 2010 bottling, black wax. Pours an opaque black, foamy brown head leaves dotted lacing. Aroma is nice with bourbon, fudgey, coconut and vanilla. Nice stuff. Body is smooth with soft carbonation. Taste shows some age up front, some papery oxidation, some salad leaves and wafer biscuit. Then starts showing signs of former glory – woody, chocolate brownies, bourbon and tobacco. Flavour starts dodgy but ends well and leaves a nice linger. Oxidation maybe not so noticeable over time. Clearly an excellent beer when relatively fresh.
