10 Deschutes The Abyss Deschutes Brewery Stout - Imperial Flavored / Pastry 4.6 4.19 1/8/2009

All of those are old ratings… Most of them I haven’t had again. Maybe the Abyss? I would kill for that DDC Hill Farmstead again. It was amazing.

Only 4 additions to my top 100 since 2019!.. 2 in the top 50. I am clearly becoming a harder rater / also not seeking out a ton of those bigger beers. (Also lost my tastes for imperial stouts bit…)

Plenty of old stuff imported from BeerAdvocate when I switched in 2012. Still nice to see what my top beers are/were though.

Good cross section of styles and countries, shows I like beer. Interesting that both No 5 and No 12 are now completely different beers to what I had and loved back then.
