Tried a few beers tonight... 2007 Allagash Interlude: I never fully understood the "bubblegum flavors" thing that Brett C is supposed to do until tonight. This was bizarre, all dubble bubble and bandaids. Not my favorite. Allagash Vagabond: Awesome, awesome. The salted butter flavor that lingered for so long seems to finally be gone and it's straight old Flanders. Still a bit of spicy oak, some pre-soy-sauce (Worcestershire-y?) flavors. Definitely in the oxidized spectrum at this point. 2004 NEBCO Three Judges: Damn tasty. Tons of tobacco and a bit of tannic leather -- a real sipper. The bottle claims it can go 20 years, which I am skeptical of... but it's certainly worth drinking now. 3/2007 Raison d'Extra: Getting... weird. Had sort of a carbonated red wine thing going on. Prickly.
