In the editorial of Beer Advocate Magazine #80;" Generally speaking, cellaring beer is a waste of time, money, and beer. There. We said it. Someone had to." Provocative point- and well worth considering. I have had excellent results cellaring some beers: quads, a Saison with brett, a very high ABV Imperial Stout, a high ABV Stingo, and Barleywines. Imperial stouts and tripels in general do seem to cellar well for me- even at 10% ABV. It was recommended by a lager brewer to drink his brewery's beers fresh- even the high ABV beers. In my opinion- don't be obsessed about cellaring beer- although it's worth trying for some styles.
