    Okay, Alstrom Bros., I know what you guys did to my old thread, but trust me - I've followed the proper protocol: I've officially made the event this time. :stuck_out_tongue:

    http://www.beeradvocate.com/events/info/75186/

    The gist is, bring your St. Bernardus Abt 12 bottles for Sunday July 19, at 5:00 PM Eastern Standard Time so we can all have a mass online tasting. We can compare vintages, bottle sizes, and general tasting notes!

    We had to nuke it as we received too many complaints that not enough of a heads up was given, holiday weekend, etc; thread was full of the same. But now that everyone has more of a heads up and it's in the calendar, we can give it a little push too. (I also updated the thread title and added a link to this thread in the calendar entry.)

    If I remember to find one, I will totally be here for that. Haven't seen one in a while but, truthfully, I haven't necessarily been looking. :stuck_out_tongue:

    No worries. It is better this way and it seems like it can be organised better so it can happen every week. Cheers and I hope you had a lovely Independence Day!

    I lucked upon a St. Bernardus gift box in a grocery store clearance cart last fall. This seems like a great way to finally try it.

    Absolutely. Both it and the Christmas Ale are fair game.

    Too far away to make this event, how is the online part of this going to work? I have a couple of these, including that Magnum Edition pictured upthread.

    Not to be a stickler, but don't you probably mean Eastern Daylight Time? Since every state except Arizona and Hawaii is currently in Daylight Time, not Standard Time.

    I bought a bottle of this about a month ago on a friend's recommendation, and haven't yet cracked it - this seems like an excellent reason to do so. Cheers BAs, see you there!

    Just tracked down a 4pk at a new bottle shop. I'll still be at work at 5 but whatever, it's a wine shop, drinking on the job is mandatory anyhow. :wink:

    Really excited for this!

    I'm in. Will be a large bottle for me.

    Just remembered I also have some Abt 12 pate in the fridge that I brought back from Bruges. Maybe a good time to crack it open!

    That date works for me, but Yikes ... a 10% ABV beer that late in the day (knowing how I start drinking early on Sundays and have to wake EARLY Monday morning ....) Uh, I don't know. I'll see what I can do.

    Either way: sounds awesome much like the MST3K simulview ... that was so much fun.

    Love this idea. I'm ashamed to say I've never had Abt 12, or at least I don't remember ever having it. I've had Prior 8 and the Christmas Ale - both were fantastic. I'm in!

    Ah! I have two oak aged ones, but they're both currently spoken for. Absolutely love this idea, though, and would wholeheartedly participate if more of these are scheduled.

    It'll be interesting to see how this turns about. Since we've all (luckily) become saturated in so much craft beer St Bernardus Abt 12 has become somewhat forgotten in it all. It'll be good to re-visit it as a new (BB A 04 02 19) 33cl bottle. Very tempted to pair it with a Westvleteren Abt 12 on the day too.
