    Just got the 2011+2012.

    2011=13.4 abv

    2012=10 abv

    Significant drop, anyone know why?

    This is the correct answer. You have a vintage bottle of AD in your hands good sir.

    If there is no date and it says 10% it is probably a 2007.

    That would be nice if that were to happen. I see a trend of upping the abv on beers of this type, and by type I mean lower release beers that are eagerly anticipated. Like Ivan The Terrible, as one example.
