Da Boss and I took the tour this past Friday.

Vibe of the tasting room was OK. Some local only taps were available and they did pour samples of BB Anniversary which was cool.

Quality of the beers are very good. It is Deschutes who over my time has had very good consistent products with the exception of the 2009 Abyss Sourgate.

Service of the ladies that run the tour and tap room was excellent. Unfortunately halfway thru the tour Da Boss was not feeling well in the room where they were cooking up a batch (high heat, humidity, and stink). The ladies took good care of her and that is appreciated!

Selection of beers in the tap room was good...maybe 12 beers in all.

Definitely recommend the tour as it provides a history of Deschutes, their approach, an overview of the brewing process, and of course 4 samples at the end of the tour. Cheers!

Very lively and loud. Took the tour, it was informative and I've been on several brewery tours, so A+ there. For such a huge operation I would have liked to see more options on tap though. 4 free samples I believe.

I have never had anything bad from Deschutes . Every beer has in the very least been "Good " and most have been " Great"!! Deschutes is one of my favorite breweries and you can't go wrong if your choice is a Deschutes brew! "Complex but refined "is a good description of their brews.Cheers!

A -Beer is as black as the night sky. Dark tan, 2 finger head that is very creamy and rich. Head is very slow to dissipate. Lacing remains on top of beer and down sides of glass. 4.5/5

S - Notes of dark toast, roast and dark chocolate. A bit of espresso as well. This beer smells extremely heavy. Aroma is all about the malt. No fruitiness or hopiness. 4.25/5

T - Bitter of espresso right off the bat transitioning to a very dark chocolate (almost a cocoa powder) and then to a toasted bread and roasted malt flavor. The flavor profile goes full circle by ending with an espresso bitterness that lingers for a long time. Ever so slight hint of caramel in the beginning. A bit of a yeasty note but it is very subdued. 4/5

M - Very heavy and chewy. Finishes dry though with a long lingering bitterness. Slightly more carbonated than expected. 4/5

O - Awesome stout. Very heavy and very dark, just like a stout should be. Big time bitterness though which threw me a bit at first but once you get used to it, it works well. 4.25/5
