    Anyone had an 07 Abyss lately? How is it drinking? I've got a few left, and thinking they may be getting to be at or past the peak? Thoughts on how long Abyss can cellar before starting to dissipate generally? Thanks

    Hey Folks,

    In the last 6-ish months, I've done a complete Vertical 06-11 and a semi Vert 07-11. The 08 & 10 were my Faves both occassions. Though 07 is still nice, I don't think Abyss can hold up past the 5 year mark.

    Never had the '06, but recent bottles of the '07 (and '08) I opened were delicious. The '07 in paricular was amazing I don't know how long they can last, but I'm afraid my stash won't last long enough to find out.

    I prefer the '08 (always have) but the '07 is still excellent too. Not sure how much longer they'll hold up, who knows?

    I drank a bottle in March. It's holding up *very* well (which is shorthand for "not falling off too fast") and still is my favorite (relatively) available imperial stout. IMO the 08 Abyss is currently a better beer, but I would not be sad if I had to drink the 07 every week until I exhaust my stash.

    I'm with dyan. '08 is and has been the winner of cellared Abyss for me. '10 is going to take the cake over the next year or so IMO.

    Well, I did my own research and found the 07 to be extraordinarily delicious and smooth. I think it is holding up fine approaching the five year mark.
