    I am expecting a few La Trappe Oak Aged 750ml bottles so I did some research on it. I noticed on the official site of the brewery that it mentions the shelf life of this bottle is 300 months!

    I love cellaring beers and I have invested in it but I have my concerns about cellaring a 11% bottle for 25 years. I believe this is the longer shelf life period I have ever seen mentioned from a brewer.

    i got a beer with a THT date of 100 years, lets hope my grandgrandgrand son can enjoy it ... probably not

    i'd age the latrappe oak aged ones as a regular quadrupel like abt12 rochefort or wv12

    De Molen's beers say to enjoy within 25 years. I too have concerns about aging a beer that long. Hell, I don't think I've even ever had a beer aged over 7 years that I found to be enjoyable.

    Cuvee Van De Keizer Blue seems to have a perfect 10-year cellaring period (provided it was stored properly for its lifetime). Apparently people who enjoy it around the 10-year mark have a lot of positive comments...

    You're getting a few of them so why not cellar at least one of them for 25 years? Maybe drink one soon then check in with another at 15 years then open the last one at 25 years.

    I just want to point out that in any other forum, or perhaps any other aspect of life, such a statement would seem crazy.

    Love it. :slight_smile:

    My main concern is that I may not be alive... small concern but valid :wink:
