    I don't think I would turn down '09 Tokio either.

    Have you tried the beer before? I think when I first had it, it was the definition of cloying. The Jasmine addition did not help in my opinion. But that's just me.

    Still no conformation of it be delivered or received. It was simply ordered by Spec's DeZavala and that doesn't guarantee delivery. (Keeping my fingers crossed.)

    I've had it a few times. The first time I didn't like it but never had anything like it before. The other times I tried it I loved it. It's challenging. I would think a four-year-old bottle would be good.

    They told me several years on DFH 120 would be great too. They lied. I don't trust "them"...

    This is maybe the greatest beer lie ever told. That beer will NEVER taste better. EVER.

    Called Spec's and Total Wine Dallas. They both said they'd expected it on Wednesday of this week, but don't expect it until next Wednesday now.

    Went Saturday morning to Specs on Smith.. was on a mission for a couple of beers. Ryan, the guy working beer, noticed my frustration of not finding what I wanted.. in return after talking for a little bit he made my inconvenience and travels worth it. He hooked me up with 2 2012 Uncle Jacob 12oz bottles.

    Goes to show that there are still genuine people out there. Thanks Ryan!

    It taste more like champagne than beer to me, give the avery bugs some time(one, two, three, four, five years) and it will change you can count on it. Give it to a wine drinker right now and you will blow their minds that this is a beer.

    Heard Total Wine in Dallas got one case in, not sure what is left, so you should call before you go.

    Total wine had a few left. Just picked up two. Specs should have them after lunch. He was in the parking lot of Specs as I left
