OK, super old thread, but I have formulated this recipe: It is derived from Obsidian Stout recipe, scaled up and adding molasses to the boil and bourbon soaked oak cubes to secondary. I may use WLP 007 yeast- Dry English Ale instead of Wyeast 1056 as it attenuates better and I have it going already.

The only Deschutes beer I haven't liked. Tasted like I was licking the creosote off of pilings...

I'd be interested in hearing how this turned out, if you have any thoughts on the recipe, and what you'd change next time? I know this is an old thread, but I've found many threads of people putting together recipes, but so far I haven't found much feedback after tasting the goods (likely because of how much time goes by between brewing it and tasting it).

Thanks in advance.

This beer was a bit disappointing. It showed promise, and if I recall, the major issue was the charcoal-like flavor from all that black malt. If I were to do this beer again, I would sub out a portion of the roast barley for some carafa III to lessen the harshness. I did use WLP 007 and it certainly was up to the task of fermenting this beer, my FG was 1.020- that may be too dry for the abyss?
