    Would certain aspects be enhanced while others are toned down a bit?

    Meant Imperial Stout in title

    I think a lot of people agree that a year on FIS is the right time to consume. I myself bought 2 singles this year, 1 fresh, 1 for next year.

    IMO it needs at least a year.
    I just popped one of last years' bottles a week or so ago, and IMO it was still too boozy. I'm putting the rest back down for at least another 6 months, maybe another year.

    Buy them as soon as you read this. 1-2 years on FIS results in damned amazing fluid.

    Fresh is good. But, I really enjoy FIS with a year or two on it.

    Fresh is great, don't understand how people think it's too "hot" (ugh, what a dumb term) or anything. The one I had that was aged a year was... not too far off from fresh, I guess the "mouthfeel" was smoother, but yeah.

    I cracked a couple 2011's yesterday and they were delicious. Lemme add that I think the 2012 was better fresh than the 2011. I may not age any 2012's.

    I dont think most would say its "hot" fresh but more bitter or hoppy, at least thats what I get from it
