    I know Deschutes produced far fewer of the '06 Abyss as compared to the production over the past several years. I also realize that this beer is about 7 years old and a good majority have been consumed by now. I see a lot of talk about those from '07-'12, but see little memtioned of the '06. So how rare is the '06 Abyss? What could you expect it to pull in a trade?

    What else would you expect it to pull, besides a DDG?

    I had an '06 a couple years ago and it had already fallen off, by now it has to be nowhere near worth what you'd have to give up for it.

    Oops, I did see another thread here and saw it ranked well against the rest recently. SO maybe we had a bad bottle but a few years ago it was the concensus on here. I hope I'm wrong. Years ago it took a growler of Capt'n Krunkles ;)

    I had some in June of 2012 and it was bangin', yo. The best of the vertical. I assume cellaring had a lot to do with this one.

    Drank '06-'11 about a month and a half ago. Nearly everyone agreed that '06 was second only to '08

    Had precisely the same experience this summer. '06 has just crested the hill & is in neutral. Drink now.

    I would suggest too looking at the trading history of all older Abyss.

    We opened a vertical while back and the '06 was still pretty good, but certainly on the plateau ... the '07 destroyed the competition. But our bottles literally have not moved an inch in 5 years and have been kept in cool Idaho basements.
