Thanks for the response. I'm hesitant to call him out by name for a couple of reasons. 1) The rest of the trade went without any issues. I was able to get TREAT, DL' 11, DORIS, older viscosity, and the Odins Raven as agreed. There were some good extras (terrapin WnB, FW velvet merlin, Victory Storm King, some other stout I hadn't tried). 2) When I contacted the trader, he wasn't aware that the box was missing the Charleville Box of Chocolates. He also claimed that both beers at 3 weeks tasted fine and he wasn't aware of any bottling / infection issues. He immediately offered to send the missing beer with replacements for the infected beers. I may be naive, but I'd like to give him the benefit of the doubt when it's possible that this was all just a simple mistake (missing a beer, sending an infected extra, and trading for a possibly infected beer). If anyone contacts me for a reference for this trader I'll let them know what happened but I don't think it's appropriate to publicly out him in this thread.
