Orval ages quite well. I recently had my last bottle from 2007 and it was great.

Yes, it seemed likely that the stronger Trappist ales were bottle conditioned and would do well on the shelf for a few years. I am less sure of some the US made beers and how well they might do.

I have currently one beer on storage, a Dark Horizon Third Edition by the Norwegian brewery Nøgne Ø. (If you speak french it is pronounced Neugné Eu). Their first edition was a gold winner at the World Beer Cup in San Diego in 2008, I remember it went for outragous amounts of money on Ebay due to its popularity. I think they say it can be stored for ten years at least.

They also made a Red Horizon and a Sweet Horizon both which I believe can be stored for a long time.

Nøgne Ø is supposed to be big in the US, but I don't know where it's available - but I know that the brewery exports a lot more of their beer than they sell in Norway. Some of their beers never even end up in Norwegian stores due to the demand from abroad. I can understand it as it is an excellent brewery.
Interesting. No, wait, the other thing ... tedious.
