Not talking about that ole girl that you messed around with in College... Kate the Great. What's the optimum time to hold one in your opinion? The reason I ask is because my brother-in-law and I opened some nice Imperial Stouts, over a few days, not too long ago (2009 Kate, 2012 BT, 2012 BASC, 2011 Hunaphu, 2012 Darkness, BCBVS, JK Whiskey Rodeo, Event Horizon). After talking for a while about their differences, tastes, smells, BA vs. non-BA, how we would rank them, we both agreed that the Kate was at the bottom of both of our lists... Granted, thats just two jackasses giving their opinions, so it doesnt mean anything besides just that... our opinions. But, did we hang on to it too long??? Has anyone done a vertical lately? I want to know so I can try to drink the next one that I try to grab a little sooner or at the optimum time. Those were all great brews and maybe thats what the problem was, they were all too good. I'm not downing the beer by any means, it was good. Thoughts?
