    I just acquired Zombie Dust, Surly Abrasive, and Heady Topper all in the same day. In which order should I drink them?

    I would go with the order you listed them. But they are all so solid, they each deserve a single sitting :)

    Better have a couple of each!
    Change the lineup each time.

  5. Order of lowest to highest ABV. Water and saltines inbetween.
    Im not thinking you will fully taste HT after the Abrasive

    I would definitely not drink them in one night, best to spread them out to enjoy them on their own.
    That's a damn haul!
  8. I agree with this. No sence in taking the chance of blowing your palate.
