Vorlauf helps settle the grain bed to minimize/filter out grain husks in the boil and also helps prevent stuck sparges.

I thought Abyss was overhyped, but I'm sure it will be very good after cellaring a couple years. Definitely Pliny. Good beer yes. Top 5 in the world, hell no. Heady Topper is pretty amazing.
