Vertical tasting of 2005; 2006; 2007 & 2008.
Enjoyed this beer many times before but finally assembled a vertical tasting of different vintages.
I couldn't find many differences between the 05 & 06. The hop bitterness has mellowed in comparison to the 07 & 08.
All vintages had similar color, head & lacing. Aromas were more subdued in 05 & 06.
Although I enjoyed the 05 & 06 I think the 08 has high potential for a winner in years to come. Luckily I bought a six pack of the 08's.
I expected more variance in the tastes of each vintage but was equally impressed with how well the earlier vintages had retained or even improved on their flavours.
A long time favourite of mine & now I can attest to its ability to continue to be a solid beer.
