    Why not just drink them and find out if they are good?

    ...or post in the cellaring/aging beer forum.

    Can't say myself as I've never had the opportunity to try any HOtD beers.

    Had a batch 27 Adam earlier this year and it was terrific -- really earthy/leathery, just some slight papery oxidation. Made me very happy.

    Haven't had a Fred that old, but by all accounts they age very, very well. I'll ping some guys who opened one earlier in the year and see if they have any tasting notes.
