It was a vintage 1999, consumed at The Festival in Portland, Maine, summer of '13.

My affected senses were overcome by varying shades of peach, apricot, and a stunning variety of stone fruit, both real and imaginary, dancing upon a canvass of tart, freshly hung on the wall of a musty barn.

I do not deceive you when I say that the finish lingered on my palate for days, even after sipping on many other formidable concoctions.

It might be the greatest beer I have ever had.

This was a 2002 vintage.

The aroma was heavy on the funk. Almost off stinky sock and attic.

The flavor follows with that heavy stinky stock quality. There's a sour quality throughout, along with a light malt backbone. It has a good amount of carbonation despite being so old and it even has some lingering notes of mint and herbal.

This beer certainly tastes different from the original brew. Whether it is more enjoyable is up for debate.
