Kilted Brewer said:And....how is it?
chione said:Well when they brought the beers over they wanted to open one, so we did. Before the Abyss I had and a few ESB's, a Shakespeare Stout, and 16oz of Apfelwein so my palate was not 100%. I can say that I was surprised by the hoppiness on nose. It was very rich and very dark. I'll crack the other one open when I a little more fresh. Also have a Hop Trip but again that will have to be for another day as well....
Quercus said:Hop Trip is very, very good...being a wet hop concoction, it's probably at it's best right now. Drink it!
Abyss, on the other hand...sit on that bad boy as long as you can. I have one that's going to sit tight until winter 2008, at least. I'm trying to get my hands on a couple more.
