    Has anyone bothered to age one of these? In theory, the sweeter flavors would fade and it would become like another aged imperial porter, right? Trying to figure out if it might be worth investing, and leaning towards no, but wondering if anyone has first hand experience.

    I was just wondering the same thing. hopefully someone will answer this. And If it's worth buying more then one for aging,or trade?

    Just had one last week that I've been holding onto for a year. I personally liked it better fresh. Seems like the sweet roasty chocolate faded and left a hole on the palate. The underlying base of the beer was a little thin/bland and not as enjoyable overall. Its worth buying more than one to drink and share but not for aging, IMHO of course.

    I wouldn't age this one. The best part of the beer is the big chocolate notes and the light oak. If you age those out there won't be much left.
