    My uncle gave me a bottle of regular Arrogant Bastard (not Double, Bourbon Barrel Aged, Oak Aged, etc) that's been sitting in his fridge for a bit. Any idea on how this beer would hold up, anyone ever drink the 7.0 AB that old or close to it? Couldn't find anything in old threads where someone has said they drank it that old.

    While Arrogant Bastard isn't a beer I'd age, I have had old bottles. How old? Hmmmm... maybe that old. I thought it was OK, even better than that. I'm not sure, it wasn't mine. It was nicely malty. Of course it loses its hops but the final beer is OK. I'm sure you'll enjoy it at least a little bit. Make sure to post back with your results!

    how was it?

    I opened up a '15 Oak Aged last week. Had a scotch flavor, was OK.

    Didn't have it yet. I'll be drinking more this summer and I'll get it to it soon.
