I had a 1 oz pour of 30year anniversary utopia tonight at a bar. I got other beers while drinking it and sat on it for about an hour. I thought it was good. Very expensive for 1 oz but worth the experience. The more it degassed the more the liquor burn went away. I like the caramel wood taste and smell too. Would I get a bottle? Probably not but I would probably go in on one with 2-3 people.

Totally- I don't think any bottle of beer could be "worth" $200 to me, I just don't think I'd get that much enjoyment out of it. But for $15 I could taste it, potentially enjoy that taste, evaluate it, think about all the flavors going on and how they came to be, and tell people about it for the rest of my life. I know myself and I wouldn't buy that bottle of beer, but I'm curious as much as the next guy.
