Let kick the cellar reviews off for the first month of 2014! HotD Fred batch 83 Not sure how old this beer is at this point... I am guessing 2 or 3 years old now. If anyone can give a specific date of batch 83 Fred, I would be greatly appreciated! This bottle is drinking very well! A: Massive long lasting head just like when its fresh. Heavy sediment load on the bottom of the bottle. S: Lots of malts, light rye and lots of tropical fruity hops! T: Tropical fruits hops imparting light bitterness. Honey, rye, and bready malts with moderate sweetness. Great balance of flavors. M: Very smooth and well carbonated. the carbonation is fairly creamy right now. well hidden abv. O: Fred is really great fresh, but this is the best that Fred has ever tasted to me and I think it will continue to get better for several years. It should be a staple in my cellar, just like HotD adam.
