    i dunno when you had it last but the bottle i had like 2 months ago didn't taste like consecration. when it was fresh on tap it tasted a lot more like consecration but it's quite different now.

    back around the release?

    i thought it was great both at release and now, but based on the bottle i had it has changed a good amount and is no longer very similar to consecration.

    You know you've become jaded when beer that tastes even remotely like Consecration is disappointing.

    I think the $45 price was a part of his disappointment, not solely that if was similar to Consecration.

    Yeah, a combo of both. Not a terrible beer by any means, but I'd never pay for it again. Didn't mean to thread shit, tickers gonna tick, etc

    Consecration is the better beer. I wasted $60 on T25 on Father's Day. Could have had 4 Consecrations instead.

    I have still two bottles in my cellar. Did it change for the better or for the worse?

    well it was a lot more distinct from consecration so that's a good thing i guess. it was quite sour, nice funk, i thought it was great. i liked it fresh too though
