Opened a cellared 2008 ceramic bottle. 5 years on the shelf has done tremendous good to this already spectacular ale. Much of the stickiness is gone, replaced by a mildly sweet maltiness with light caramel tones. It warns you on the nose to take it easy, without the stringent alcohol note. The body is perfect: brand new there was a syrup-ey feel which is now gone. it surprisingly finishes with a long-drawn bitterness which was non-existent in a new bottle.

Gentlemen, your 99 is an understatement. Rogue has set the bar very high for a cellar-able ale.
