    Labyrinth is a fantastic beer. For as high as the ABV is (13%, I think?) you dont get overwhelmed by the booze. I'd love to get a hold of that one again.

    Completely agree about Labyrinth. It's one of the best of the style. Would love to get another one as well.

    It is, and fairly easy to find. It's a bit pricey some places though.

    Is the list long of beers you have less than 6 of? ;)

    Seriously you are convincing the lot of us to perform a protest of epic proportions on your front lawn until we dwindle down that stash

    ...Abyss is amazing, I can see why folks were going nuts looking for it. I didn't think it could get much better over Founder's Imperial or Sierra Nevada Narwhal but damn man, Good shit. Can't wait till me and my buddies let the other bottles age till after November.

    Yessir, saw it on their upcoming list when I came to get the WBADPP last week. Called today, and they said they put it on last night. I don't think they publicized it, so not a huge rush. I'm working on the back patio and enjoying.

    I opened one the other night to see the difference in aging vs not aging. It's much better after the 'open after' date IMO.

    It's good to try fresh to give you an idea of how the beer has aged, if you have 2 2012 Abyss that is. I got to try one fresh and have one to age. I'm waiting for the 2013 abyss release and then I'll have a 2011-2013 vertical tasting for my friends and/or BA's.
