    Just curious what it would take to land a PvW Dl ,
    Would it work with a stille nacht reserva 2008 75 cl ?

    Thoughts ?

    Looking at OP's gots and those he has FT, he most certainly can afford it.

    if the beers you have listed for trade are accurate, you've got the ammo to pull one off. you're talking about a bona-fide whale. it's third only to the 2011 de muerte and the 2011 brandy vanilla in trade value (does not consider the '06 growler as that's effectively a ghost). getting someone to ship overseas is going to be difficult, but framboos or blabaer (or, if you have the right vintage of OGV) would be a good way to start a coversation about one.

    PvW DL is a Moby Dick White Whale. And probably past it prime anyways... What I am trying to say is it not worth what it will take to get a bottle at this stage in its life cycle in the bottle. Its a 2010 DL varient so in early spring its 4 years old... I bet that there are not many bottles of it left anymore either...

    2010 DL base, but was released at DLD 2011 as one of the four variants that year. Definitely a white whale, but my buddy just traded a Rare, BA Abraxas, and DB Huna for one as the main part of the trade. A Facebook group I'm in has a guy selling it for $500. Worth it, who knows? People I know who have had it recently say its still holding up pretty well, but as with many old BA stouts, could all depend on cellar conditions.

    Yeah, I would agree with that. If the beer has been properly cellared it will still be pretty good beer.
