    I don't think dopplebocks really pull much/develop into trade bait. It's an often miserable experience, but getting up early and waiting in line for limited beer releases is the safest bet to attain "trade bait."

    I definitely agree that dopplebocks aren't trade bait but you never know who's willing to sleep on the sidewalk in front of RR for some old Coney Island beers no one else cares about.

    Speaking of Samichlaus...I opened up a 10 year old bottle this past weekend. My grocery store randomly had a 4 pack of this on clearance for $4 back in '09 or something. I drank the first three bottles relatively quickly, but figured I'd hold onto this one for a while and see what happens. Now I wish I'd held onto all of them for a while.

    Man, it was basically perfect. Plums, fig, cherry chocolate tootsie roll. No detrimental oxidation to speak of.
