Deschutes announces Barrel-Aged Abyss release date

Deschutes Barrel Aged Abyss bottles

Deschutes The Abyss returned in December, 2015. This time, it’s not alone. There are two barrel-aged editions riding this imperial stout’s coat tails.

We spoke with Jason Randles at Deschutes Brewery, and he’s clued us in on some of the details. Since this year marks the 10th bottling of The Abyss, three editions will debut together, that’s why the regular release will happen later than usual.

Coming January 15th, a 100% Cognac Barrel-Aged Abyss, and 100% Rye Whiskey Barrel-Aged Abyss, will be available.

The rye whiskey barrels came primarily from Willet Distillery in Kentucky. The cognac barrels hail from France, and are quite old.

Deschutes mentions this is a very limited release, in 22 ounce bottles.
