Bottled on 11/19/12

This bottle is enjoyed a little over 2 years after bottling and it has aged pretty damn well. The taste is sweet with some hops still lingering around although I'm sure they have faded considerably over the last couple years. This one drinks deceivingly well considering the high ABV. Overall, I haven't had a fresh bottle to enjoy of this beer but it is damn tasty after a couple years. Moral of the story: drink one fresh and save at least one to enjoy years down the road. Cheers!

Very disappointing. Overly complicated and harsh, none of the different taste melded together leaving a fairly unpalatable beer.
