After I drank my first, I had a bit of buyer's regret that I had one more. I can always return it of course, but I won't. I'll share it with someone who wants to try it.
That's pretty much how I felt about it. I grabbed two. Had one. And it was good, but not $18.40 good. So I gifted the second one to a buddy of mine at Christmas. He enjoyed it, but wasn't blown away.
Considering what $18.40 can get me (pretty near five Westmalle Dubbels, six Aventinus, seven Brooklyn Black Chocolate Stouts, etc.) I'll just chalk this one up to something I tried once and enjoyed but don't need to have again and I'll sit back and curiously watch to see how well Ola Dubh 40 sells without the benefit of scarcity.
So yeah. It's not really much of a consolation prize in the face of a mediocre release in my opinion.
