Hard to rate this one. When I first got it, wet opened it soon after and drank some.... and I was a tad disappointed. I knew not to expect a typical beer, and it does drink almost more like a congac, but that wasn't what bothered me. And it was almost three years ago, so it's hard to say now, but I think the alcohol taste overpowered any of the tastes I would later enjoy.

Fast forward almost three years.

It's been sitting in my closet and a friend has never tried it. I take it out and put two glasses. And I love it. It's still strong, and tastes so, but doesn't have as much bite and the flavors are blending well. Sweet, cherry, toffee, leather (stole that from another description, but it somehow works) and delicious. I would get another sometime and age it at least three years, but I'll have to make far more money first.

Shared bottle at 504 1-yr anniversary party. Absolutely delish but drinks more like a liqueur than a beer. Glad finally got to try it.
