After wondering what the date 11/1/17 on my bottle meant, I found that it means the beer "expires" in 5 years. That being said, that would mean it was brewed yesterday and then traveled overnight to my local corner store in Florida. I don't think so.
That being said, it means that this bottle had to be extremely fresh. The head retention is fantastic and the smell is even better. Plum, raisin, everything you would expect. The taste very nearly mirrors the smell, however there was a surprisingly medium-high level of carbonation that I will chalk up to being an extremely fresh batch. Mouthfeel was a lighter than expected as well, but no complaints here.
All that being said, definately one of my top 10 beers, a vintage would undoubtedly be even more exceptional.
