Would certain aspects be enhanced while others are toned down a bit?

i'm surprised your messages/likes ratio is so low
I am surprised you bothered to look at all
i helped you out a bit above with a like, it was making me sad
I think a lot of people agree that a year on FIS is the right time to consume. I myself bought 2 singles this year, 1 fresh, 1 for next year.
I think it has to do with his avatar...CHEERS
It's really, really, REALLY nice with a year on it.
youre at 38% man, keep youre head up. That sh*t is important around these parts
There is also convo about it going on in this thread:
It's the second thread in this forum
Yeah i know. And it was probably the first before this one was started
Not that hard for OP to find, eh? Pretty funny.
never been in this forum before. i'm not usually this swanky, i just buy them and drink them. local store has some from last year though.
IMO it needs at least a year.
I just popped one of last years' bottles a week or so ago, and IMO it was still too boozy. I'm putting the rest back down for at least another 6 months, maybe another year.
Buy them as soon as you read this. 1-2 years on FIS results in damned amazing fluid.
Fresh is good. But, I really enjoy FIS with a year or two on it.
Fresh is great, don't understand how people think it's too "hot" (ugh, what a dumb term) or anything. The one I had that was aged a year was... not too far off from fresh, I guess the "mouthfeel" was smoother, but yeah.
I cracked a couple 2011's yesterday and they were delicious. Lemme add that I think the 2012 was better fresh than the 2011. I may not age any 2012's.
I dont think most would say its "hot" fresh but more bitter or hoppy, at least thats what I get from it
