    Tis true. They switched all of their bottles over this year.
    I will say that they are a good facsimile of the printed labels though. I didn't even notice until yesterday that moas labels had changed too.

    My wife and I were out on vacation when Ken called us. Unfortunately I didn't pick up the message 'till two days ago!!! Needless to say, I missed the boat on this one. If anyone has a bottle to trade, I've got some New Glarus I could send your way. Cheers Fellas!

    My asshole FedEx driver was either lazy or has never seen Smokey and the Bandit. My shipment was just delayed from this evening to Monday. Dang.

    It's all good though:(

    Thanks to a very generous BA, I was able to get a trade worked out. Good beer karma for everyone!

    I have plenty of MOAS (2012 and 2011) if someone wants to make an offer.

    Got mine yesterday and drank my first MOAS. Awesome. Abacus/Sucaba is my champion barley but fresh this is a close challenger. Folks from Pelican were nice as they can be. Class act there.

    If anyone in downtown Chicago is looking for some bottles I have a 1/3rd of a case I am looking to unload as a friend backed out of his portion.

    If anyone is still looking to get some bottles the Portland market still has a good amount left, I'd be happy to pick some up if interested in trading. Just send me a private message, happy to help.

    I'm still down for a few of these, thought I had a few trades going but the guys either backed out or drank them all. I'm in GA, so I can get a lot of East coast only stuff. Send me messages if you're serious. I'd be happy with 2-3 but more is fine too.

    I got one in a trade a few weeks ago but would love another to age.

    I have a few extras and am in NYC if you'd like to set something up.

    This beer is pleasurable when I put it up to my nose and in my mouth.

    Finally opened my first one of these last night and was extremely happy. Very complex, even without aging. I was going to give a few of these away as gifts, but I can feel the Christmas spirit seeping out of me...

    :p
