Buddy of mine opened a 2011 bottle. Unfortunately the coffee fell off and as a result it was pretty boozy. I wouldn't age this one guys...

Got to try a 2013 bottle that I had aged for a bit over a year. The coffee is still so prominent with a nice bitter bite but just a fantastic smooth sweet finish. The 13.4% ABV has mellowed out but is still present without distracting from the great flavors of this beer. Very, very well done.
