Default Stone Vertical Epic.

Two words. Yummy.

It ain't Pliny the Elder... but it is damn tasty. Will stash some for aging.

I'd never even heard of this beer until I read about it on here a few months ago.

My question now is this...

Do I bother aging it like they talk about, or just pop this puppy open and enjoy it tonight?

they put out a new one each year just like the HBT anniversary beers (8-8-08. 9-9-09, etc). Which year are you drinking? It's beer! You can do whatever you want, however this beer is meant to cellar. It's nice to forget about a couple of bottles for a year or two and then crack them on a nice night!

It's this year's. Just bought it a few days ago and it's been sitting in my fridge. I don't really have anywhere to cellar properly, so I think I might just put it out of it's misery tonight.

Tripel is my favorite style and I love this beer (the 8-8-8).

I plan to brew the recipe on 9-9-9 if I'm not too druck on barleywine.

The 2-2-2 looks good too, I want to do an imperial Wit so I think I'll brew theirs sometime.

Look into the Allagash fluxus if you want an Imperial wit. They just put it out this year and it was really top notch.

I still have yet to buy the 08. I will get some soon.
