I feel that way about a lot of beers, but especially dark ones like stouts and barleywines. At some point you just hit this quality threshold where I cannot discern differences. I had dinner with my best friend, Adam from Floodland, and a couple other people a while back and everyone brought stupid amounts of beer. BBT was just some random thing that happened to be there. If I didn't look at my Untappd checkin I don't think I could tell you anything about it other than a lot of the people there were excited to drink it.That's how I feel about basically all hyped beers, but especially stouts. Once you get past a certain quality threshold the differences start to be marginal.
And I will never for the life of me understand going out of your way for a pastry stout. They're all the damned same!
