    I hear you. I get about 10-11 oz of each bottle after CAREFULLY pouring at a snails pace so I can avoid getting the sludge and then I pour the rest down the drain. I wish someone could explain why/what it is. LOVE the beer but the sludge is nasty.

  3. I just had one I was aging and it was my experience that this beer does not age well. Not so much that the flavors were off but there were so many yeast floaties I found it took away from my enjoyment. I had the same experience with Better Half,too.

    See, I just had Better Half at Christmas with my brothers and I either didn't notice any floaties or didn't care, but it would make sense that if Curmudgeon has some sediment that Better Half would too.

    Better Half was still really good too, for what it's worth.

    This is what the 6 pack carrier looks like. Not the actual bottle label. Sorry for any confusion.
  7. Yep noticed that too, looks like a big glob of phlegm, it was enjoyable.
