    Hey all, I've got a 2010 Surly Smoke I've been sitting on and wondering how you all think it will taste? Only had this relatively fresh in the past and of course it was great

    I have had smoke at a year on at least four occasions. Three times i had it at a year in bottles and it was great 2 of those times. The other time out of a bottle it was very oxidized and had somehow lost alot of the smoky flavor that i love. The only time I've had it on tap at a year it was fantastic. I'd be willing to bet that if your bottle was stored properly then it is probably still good and I'd recommend drinking it.

    I get two bottles of this every year. Too much smoke for me fresh, but a full year later it had lost to much umph on the smoke for my taste. I think 3 or 4 months on the shelf is perfect.
