I made the mistake of putting this in the cellar for 1.5 years and it serves me right that it was less than stellar from the cellar. So, if you have one of these, drink it fresh. However, you don't know until you try.

The only thing that was off-putting about this beer was that it didn't have any carbonation to support it. I thought it was well made, albeit the nose was a tad muted, it could have used a bit more barrel, and there was a touch of oxidation, but nothing that would keep me from drinking this again.

Drink fresh, screw the rest! :)
