    That review was obviously pre-sour craze.

    In other news.... Abyss may street tomorrow. Maybe,

    Ignore the above. Most likely misinformation.

    I have had a bad beer from time to time and I have never reacted like that. Barrel aged beers is not easy and even the best breweries can screw it up. As we know now Deschutes changed their process for Abyss after this and made sure that there would never be another widespread infection issue.

    But he wanted to go for a "look at me" type review.

    Guess it got him on Youtube.

    You go boy! :rolleyes: (talking about our 2009 Abyss friend to be clear)

    I bet most of you would have a similar reaction if you coughed up $18 dollars for that.

    :rolleyes:

    I'd be pissed, but I'd also contact the brewery and see what they could do for me. I wouldn't even waste my time to make a video and host it. That took more than $18 of his time.

    I honestly enjoyed the 2009 Abyss that I had. It was similar to Funk Metal I guess only a little more sour. I guess I also got it as an extra so I was prepared for it to be sour and couldn't really get upset about it.

    He does have a point on pricing... Check out the price tag on the 2006 Abyss we drank last month....It tasted awesome. :)

    Judging by the faux wood paneling, atrocious recliner, and kitchen "decor" from his other videos, that took far, far less than $18 of his time.

    Well then, maybe $18 is more than he should be spending on beer. ;)

    I had just assumed the bad decor and wood paneling was due to basement decorating.

    So the 2006 is holding up well? Thinking about trying to track a bottle down...I have 07-11. When the 12 makes it here we are going to do a 7-12 vert but thought a full Abyss vert would be pretty epic. Worth it or not?

    Apparently it's here today (in Austin anyways). Just heard all the usual suspects received it today...

    The best part of that video is that the majority of the rant takes place before he even tastes it. My favorite line "If this is infected, there's going to be hell to pay." By whom? And how? Laughable.

    One of the few times you want your beer to be infected (with the good tasty bacteria and wild yeast)

    Keep this away from my '12 DESCHUTES! Cocksuckers!

    Just picked up a bottle at Specs RR, so I can confirm its here. They only got 1 case, so it will be gone fast. I was told that they think Arbor Walk got it today as well, but no confirmation on Brodie.

    i take it you haven't seen many fermentations in progress, much less intentionally infected ones...

    I hope this doesn't hit Houston until next week. I know that is selfish but this is the only way I can increase my chances of getting some.

    You need more homebrew friends. The good stuff always has some wonderful floating moldy mess.
