This beer is not good enough to warrant the difficulty associated with acquiring it.

It is a decent barrel aged beer but I think Breakfast Stout is a better beer.

This might have been king ten years ago, but beer has come a long way since then, to the point where I pass up opportunities to try in favor of better beers these days.
