2013 Abyss, settling in for a Pirates of Dark Water marathon.


Looking back, casting stones in the old ale pond, like Walden with vomit running down my lapels, this is no longer that hefty unbalanced bomb that I thought it was in 2008.

Still phenomenal, seems more balanced, less “barrel” character and more anise and molasses. Kinda a half BA profile, but the base is so roasted and with that deep char.

If you read DDB, you already have had this a billion times. There’s a nostalgic love for such a world class beer that beer gets old. Exploitedcollegegirls may be tired to some, but some timeless recipes wear on like the timeless lines of a 3000GT: endlessly enjoyable.
