    I aged my first bottle without ever having it fresh. At one year I tried it and did not like it, the maple was gone and though the hops faded, they faded into oxygen from what I tasted. My second bottle was a week old and I didn't like it either, very little maple, and the hops were too 'chalky' for me. I don't think it's a good beer at any age.

    I had a bottle fresh, and then another bottle a few months later. So old, but not aged, per se. I definitely preferred it fresh. Hops and maple had fallen off quite noticeably (although as noted above by RDMII, there isn't much maple even when fresh).

    I tried it fresh and enjoyed it, but I am sitting on an original batch bottle, not sure when I am going to open it.

    I have had it out of the bottle fresh and very much enjoy it. I have had it on cask and enjoyed it even more.

    There is a delicate hoppiness to it that I wouldn't really want to lose.
