    Resurrecting old dead threads gets you through the work day?

    I personally spend my days at work hatching nefarious plans to win all of my trades.

    Hi guys, New to the BA forums. I have a pretty good flavor memory. I bought a case of BWB last year and a case of it this year. I sat on two 4-packs of 2011 and started drinking them toward the end of last year. For one, the beer doesn't age; It separates and gets a little stale. I tried the 2012 though and it seemed a little more astringent and not nearly as sweet / toffee & carmel forward as 2011. Seems like there are split opinions on this and THAT makes me feel better.

    Cheers
