    So trade & taste wise how does CFH'13 compare with the 2012 version? Are there more bottles?

    Same amount blended as last year and same amount released to go as last year (360).
  3. taste wise, I preferred 2013 to 2012 and I think the babypalates that complain it was too hot/the 2% abv boost was too much will come around in 6 months. i am curious to see where the reviews end up falling, but in the meantime I will drink Pugachev's cobra in the minority without a single fuck to spare.

    I don't know exactly how strong 2012 was. Did they release alcoholyzer results for that one or are you just going off of the 2012 label?
  5. Cicerone L4, cetrifuge palate emphasis, my bitter zones have been trained to part our residual sugars and do subjective ABV tests.

    srs tho I have no idea.

    Well if someone sends me a bottle i will review it and give it a honest Midwest taste test
    it would also be my 1st review ........as I don't rate beers usually because it is so subjective to ones taste buds ..... but for this one I'm willing to give it a try and review it ;)

    2012 currently at 4.56, 2013 at 4.48....Good prediction!

    Haven't seen many of these being traded in the forums (I'm assuming because there aren't that many out there, with only 360 bottles at each release), but what is the 2013 going for right now? I have a 2012 and would like to do a side-by-side with the 2013. Does anyone have any recently completed trades?

    I did a vert with '11, '12, '13 around release and thought it went '12>'13>'11.

    '13 was drinking a bit boozy fresh, but still delicious. It really did seem to have the most potential.

    I revisited '13 a few weeks ago and I didn't seem to notice as much booziness. Relying solely on my memory of '12, I'd say they're drinking close to the same right now and '13 will likely surpass once it cools down.
