    Might wanna drink that one. I had an 06 750ml last winter. It was tasty and somewhat different, but definitely over the hill.

  8. I just can't bring myself too. I have no to low expectations; just looks too good full and capped. Though I did drink my DFH Liquor De Malt, complete with paper bag, this past winter. It was amazingly good.

    Don't talk to me about the stuff I skipped over when I didn't know better. Shudder to think about it. Maybe that's why I have a buying problem now . . .

    I drank that one with Nawset... shot a review actually ( ), and I must say I was VERY impressed. Aged malt liquor tastes awesome? Who knew. And there was no distribution on that one is was a very limited, go to the brewery and get it event I believe. Only 300 bottle. produced

    But to answer the original question, I guess I'll have to say my 08 Smuttynose Really Old Brown Dogs. Sooo good and they just never seemed to get the recipe to taste like that again.

    I got two of these immediately following the release... Drank one, the other has been in the fridge with a sticker that says, "Don't touch" to keep folks from grabbing it during tastings. I should drink it or trade it.
