    Picked one of these bad boys up recently.
    Is this a beer worth aging, or should I drink it sooner rather than later? I've had it before and I really liked it, but wondering if age would do anything to it.

    Thanks guys

    I'm inclined to vote against aging this one. The old bottles I've had demonstrated faded coffee notes and subdued roastiness.

    I wasn't a fan of the thin flavor profile fresh, so I doubt aging it is going to make it any better. YMMV.

    It won't be an expensive experiment, so I would say go ahead and try cellaring, but like what others said above, I don't think it'll improve with age
