    Just opened my first bottle of this year's Dissident last week and split it with friends. It was really really good, but still a little hot. Can't wait for this year's Abyss to complete my 2006-2012 verticals! :D
  3. Well...at least you'll get to enjoy a few good bottles. I've had all but the '09 (and 12, obviously) recently...and outside the '10...I'd take a pass on all of them, unfortunately. But...that's just me. :)
  4. Do you think the '11 just needs some more age on it, or was there something else you didn't like about it?

    So, are you saying that Dissident is already out on shelves?
  6. I think it's been available at the brewery for a few weeks. Distribution starts in mid October maybe?

    miss those days.

    clerk: are these any good?

    me: not really.

    clerk: why did you buy 6 of them?

    me: my roommate is and alcoholic.
  11. Are you talking about the Dissident or Abyss? Cause there was no '11 Dissident release..

    '11 abyss was very heavy cherry bark i put about a case away after drinking the first two. im hoping it smooths out a little. i liked '10 much better

    $4.99 for a bomber? 2006? It's probably skunked! No thanks, bro. Where's the Steel Reserve?

    "Excuse me sir. This beer is expired by 6 years. Would you like me to clear your store of your old stale beer?" *Wringing hands* Mwahahahaha
  15. Sadly it was 6 years ago....

    Some sticker prices will always stay with the bottle though.

    FT: 2006 Abyss ISO: $5 in locals?

    So trade value for an 06 abyss is now 4.99? I'll take two!

  17. Abyss, since the guy in the post right above mine said "I've had all but the '09 (and 12, obviously)", and there was no '09 Dissident release either.

    I'm psyched. I have never tried Abyss so I can't wait to get a couple. I had one Dissident in early 2011 (2010 release I'm sure) and it was one of the biggest surprises for me. It was amazing. I'll have to try to pick up 2-3 of each of these.

    Missouri and Minnesota are closest Midwest Distro at this time but I keep hearing Illinois may be coming in 2013. I can only hope!!!

    How is the Dissident hunt going for the rest of you?

    Shelf-whale status here in the Twin Cities... :(

    Anyone who orders from France 44 know if they will get Abyss?

    JoRado Savant (275) Minnesota Oct 26, 2010

    Yeah i'm in the Twin Cities area and I spent most of my day driving around to a bunch of different liquor stores trying to get some Dissident. It appeared that if anyone got any it was only 1 case, so as you can imagine they disappeared very quickly.
  28. fuck. Between Abyss and Firestone 16, November is going to be a very wallet draining month

    I've been wondering the same thing. No luck for me here in Tucson yet. The closest I can get is the Deschute/HotD collab Collage since it has some Dissident in it. I'm keeping an eye out though and I'll let you know if I see it.

    I have yet to see it here in Texas. I was told it has been delayed because of labels or something
  34. I'm drinking my first Abyss as I type this and I'm wishing I didn't need to trade to get it. If I could buy this at my local I'd have a large stash to say the least.

    The Abyss is my all-time favorite beer and I am really glad that I purchased 5 bottles last year. I probably spent like 20 dollars in gas driving around to get it. Worth it!

    Honestly I don't know. but i always get these emails from "fred" and he has a case. I believe in cali. It's just weird because when i click on the link it goes to the brewery website and not his. I can't remember for the life of me what site it is.

    I know thats no help, but I'd say it's hitting shelves now.
