    How was the Peaches bottle? Somehow, the regular AND peaches came to Tampa, FL on draft and I had 9 x glasses of the peaches and 3-4 x regular Sour/Rye over a two week period. Is that bottled only for reserve society folks?

    Peaches is bottled for Hoarders only. This is the 2nd time I've tried it and I enjoyed it alot more a few months ago. The fruit seems to not be as vibrant, still there but not as much. It's still absolutely awesome, but when I had it in April/May it was a fruit bomb.

    I was also sober last time I tried it and semi drunk this time, so that may also be a reason the fruit seemed muted

    Just a small KBS vertical with a couple of buddies... (left to right, 2011, 2012, 2013)

    [​IMG]

    2013 was great as fresh usually is. 2012 was somewhat oxidized, and a little more mellow than I've had at 1 year old before. 2011 was basically the same as the 2012, with the exception of less vanilla and more barrel flavors.

    We did a 2010-2013 last month...

    The 2011 still had a ton of coffee flavor in it. I was surprised.

    I'd rank them 2012>2010>2011>2013

    2012 had lost most of it's coffee, but I think the coffee is too strong when fresh anyways.

    I think the strong coffee is one of the best parts of the fresh. It really balances our with the barrel. That being said, that's why I like beer. We have completely different preferences of this beer, but it's still a great beer.
