    All, planning on opening these blind (I've had each of them fresh, but never side-by-side) -- before I do though, any thoughts on trade value for a full vert? What have verts like this traded for -- if anyone has some personal experience, it'd be helpful to get some thoughts? Again, I've had them all and plan on drinking them...but curious to see...

    Thanks!
  2. Had 12-16 at FW's GABF dinner. Unfortunately, we all much preferred XV and XVI, so the older vintages, while cool, wouldn't be a huge draw for me. I posted something to this accord after getting back from the dinner, and a lot of people disagreed with me though, saying they preferred older vintages, so the demand is there. At a minimum, you're looking at $30*4 worth of beer, so that lands you in Rare or similar territory.

  3. The bulk of the trade value in verticals like this are in the older bottles. 16 and 15 are basically shelf beers. (15 is still widely available) 13 should have pretty good value, and 14 somewhere in between.

    If you're willing to go over on $4$, I'm sure you could pull Chocolate Rain+ or something like that.
  4. Enjoy those beers good sir ..... 14 was still damn good a month ago when I had it
