    What beer do you have currently that you are most proud of?

    I have 3:

    Kuhnhenn 4D 2010
    Kuhnhenn Barrel Aged 4D 2010
    Kuhnhenn 4D 2007

    As a runner up, I'm going to go with 2011 Victory at Sea. Not because it's rare, but because I'm surprised I managed to keep a bottle this long. It's my all time favorite beer, all things considered.

    Rare, duh.

    EDIT: I'm also stoked on my '07 Expedition Stout, but only because I bought it off the shelf for the normal price a few months ago.

    Value-wise I guess it's a bottle of Millennium Geuze.

    Pure sentimental value is probably the nip bottle of Black Damnation 666 some incredibly kind-hearted beautiful bastard (you know who you are) gave me as an extra, leaving me at a loss for words at the awesomeness of this community.

    Its a tie between my bottles of 2012 Churchill's Finest Hour and my magnum of 2006 Budweiser Brew Masters Private Reserve.

    Is that really a thing?

    Also, I had 2 bottles of 2012 Churchill's but I dropped one and it shattered. I know....

    2 bottles of '94 ("Proprietor's Reserve") Sam Adams Triple Bock, pretty much because I drank everything else with some help from my friends. I came to the conclusion that I could get hit by a truck without ever having tried a lot of awesome beer, so I hosted a "cellar cleaning party."

    2010 Goose Island Night Stalker. Just recently found it on a store shelf. Never thought I would be the owner of a beer that's both retired and cellerable, whatever that's worth.

    My four years of Central Waters Bourbon Barrel Barleywine.

    Yes, it's off the shelf, yes, it's not expensive, but it might be the best-aging beer I've ever tasted.
