    What beers do you guys currently have in your possession, or are getting soon, that you are really looking forward to trying for the first time, and why?

    I'm looking forward to the following:
    DuPont Triomfbier Vooruit - just picked up this new release, and excited to see how much smokiness the smoked crystal malt adds. Pictures of it look beautiful

    Also, I'm really looking forward to trying the SN Narwhal Imperial Stout - Barrel Aged when it releases

    Barrel Aged Narwhal
    Chocolate Rain
    Heady Topper

    The last two have been on my list for a long time, hopefully I will get lucky and be able to try them soon.

    The oh so divisive Dark Lord. I have one staring at me for the right time to open it. I want to see which side of the fence I land on with this beer. Also a DB cake

    I'm looking forward to tomorrow evening (my birthday) where I will be drinking a '14 KBBS and The Rusty Nail for the first time. There will be equally amazing beer there I will get to try for the first time as well that I might be even more excited for.

    Saison Brett 2014
    Heady Topper

    I have the saison Brett in the cellar. It's going to be tough to wait a full year for the Brett to mature. I should be able to get Abraxas when it is released in November, and I'm sure someone will want to trade some Heady Topper for Abraxas. My taste list for this year should be complete by the end of December.... except for Saison Brett. I still have to wait a while for that one, but at least it's in my possession.

    Up until last night, Fou Foune (it was so good I wish I was drinking it right now)
    On the list currently
    BA Tweak, my favorite beer on tap curious to see what a BA version is like in bottles
    I've got some Jester King coming soon, really excited for those
    Bud Light Egg-Nog-arita I can't wait for that combo

    Nothing specific exactly, One of my good friends is coming up from Wilmy this weekend. We are going to give a couple sours a try probably mostly Wicked Weed stuff since none of us are very familiar with sours. Should be interesting, I've only had 2 sours that I thought were okay and I was able to drink, both were WW. I haven't been able to really get into sours but I am giving it another shot.

    Divisive is correct. But I enjoyed mine. Dark Lord was worth the 10 year wait for me, even if it wouldn't be for others.

    Should do a '15 Saison Brett along side for comparison. I for one prefer it fresh but that's just my opinion.

    I am looking forward to trying Ballantine IPA once it arrives on my doorstep. (Not available here.) I also have some KBS that I have been saving to celebrate the arrival of my first grandchild. Any day now ...

    While I know patience is the limiting factor here, you can probably wait on 120-min for a long time, an it will keep getting better

    Get on the Sculpin, if you already have it! Those hops will fade!

    Drink it! It's really easy to get more! Or, if it's a particular old one, go get a fresher one, and drink that! May I also recommend doing a side by side with Rochefort 6 and 8, to see the variances in the three?

    Jeff is correct, I am in Winchester. Tonight there is a bar here in town (Union Jacks) that is tapping a keg of Bourbon County, they will also have bottles for sale ( I heard rumors of Bourbon County Coffee, and Backyard Rye)
