    Honestly, I've had every vintage of MW and it's nowhere near as bad as what people have said so far. The heavyness of the beer really covers any of the off flavors you'd perceive as "green pepper".

    I think people are blowing this out of proportion. When I commented on it, as I have a few times, I merely put it out there to be on the lookout for it. It certainly doesn't hurt the beer either, it's just a different flavor than intended. The stout and barrel still dominate and it's still awesome, it's just maybe a 95 out of a 100 vs. a 98 when fresh. If I know a beer is a 98, I drink it when it's a 98.

    Regarding the coffee beer discussion, the thing t don't get, is the idea that aging coffee beers is a good idea. Maybe I'm missing something, but are we expecting the beer to improve?

    For some people, like me, the coffee can be too heavy in a good coffee beer. A lot of coffee beers are bitter and astringent fresh, almost chalky or ashy in taste, whereas I prefer the rich roasty characteristic of coffee. So I like that harshness to mellow out a lot before I can really enjoy it.

    100% this. Its almost all coffee beers that end up with that flavor. I don't really consider it to be an "off" flavor but it's just how the beer develops. I always find them quite drinkable still but I wouldn't recommend sitting on them for years upon years.

    Yes, it's difficult to believe that they didn't save a ticket just for you.

    Is sarcasm an off-flavor?

    No, but it does seem to become more prominent with age...

    One of my regular traders works for Portola, he had said that they roast the coffee completely differently for use in beer, maybe that has something to do with those flavors you're describing.
