    We got this years in a trade, and it was not very impressive. Not sure if we got a bad bottle or what, but way too carbonated and tasted boring. I drank a Black Xantus after just to restore my faith in stouts. I feel gipped :-/

    Well, it does have a "best after" date on it for a reason. I disagree though. The '12 is very good now and very promising for the future in my opinion.
     
  5. Just picked up a bottle at Essential Market (4th & University) in downtown Seattle. They still have a few left for those who've given up on finding it in the city like I had.
     
  6. Anyplace have it on tap in Portland?

    It's listed on Belmont Station's taplist currently.
     
  8. The 2013 Abyss is now $17 at the Bend Pub. Ouch. They've gone from $10-17 in just a couple of years.

    Still within market price for a [partial] barrel aged beer these days, but The Abyss always used to be the best buy of the group.
     
  9. looks like they saw that and decided to cash in. it was the same in portland.
     
  10. In five years most special release HOTD twelve ounce will be $30 and Abyss will be $25.​
     
  11. sadly you're probly right

    I wouldn't mind the price as much if there were more of a barrel presence...but I've tried '13 on cask, regular & nitro, and this is a beer that - since 2011 - has just gotten flat-out left in the dust by many other BA beers out there.

  14. Hmm. Here in BC we pay $20 for Black Butte and Dissident so I expect this year's Abyss will be easily $25 in BC.

    Won't stop me but it's pretty pricy for sure. It's all supply and demand though - demand has skyrocketed while supply has been more steady.

    Daaayumm... Matt telling it like it is...
     
  16. Rather than get this year-old thread started up again, let's start a new one for 2013, ok?
    Locking this one...

    Cheers,
    Brian
