    Has anyone cracked a 2009 Beast recently? Bought a bottle and was seeing if I should continue to age it? Thanks!

    No idea. Bought two bottles (one from '11 and one from '12) and haven't felt up to opening either of them. I want to try them, but I'm usually at the 'end of my night' drinking-wise when I think about it. The ABV scares me off in those instances, and I never think of it when searching for beers to crack open at the beginning of my many sessions.

    2009 is fine now, and will be fine in years to come. I'm still enjoying the 2004. That beer has a very long cellar life.

    Rule #1. Alway have tried at least once everything in the cellar- that way one can tell the differences in flavor profile as it matures.
