Anybody had this recently?  I just picked one up on my way out east and am hoping I didn't waste my money.

They graciously poured us a bottle of the first batch at our tasting at Ithaca during Lumfest, and it was superb.

I got back home, hoping to pick up a few bottles, but it hasn't been on the shelf since....this was like 4-5 months ago.

Drank a bottle of the 0009 batch on New Year's Eve.  I thought it was real nice.  Still some hops, but pretty damn smooth and tasty.

Agreed.  The balance between the citrusy hops and chewy caramel-toffee malt was superb.

A bit late to the party here, but I am trading for some more at Sexual Chocolate because I am running low.  That is how much I like that beer.  Everyone in line at Darkness I shared it with acted like they enjoyed it as much as I do.
