Oct. 2009 bottle cracked on Aug. 2011.
This is a beer meant to be aged; a year and a half ago this had that dry-hopped aggression, but now it's thick and malty. This feels like it can sit another year or two.
Toasted malt, caramel, brown sugar, vanilla, raisins, and only a tickle of hops.
I pick this up for about $10/6pk. With time and patience this is a great deal for an old ale.
