    Might wanna drink that one. I had an 06 750ml last winter. It was tasty and somewhat different, but definitely over the hill.

    I just can't bring myself too. I have no to low expectations; just looks too good full and capped. Though I did drink my DFH Liquor De Malt, complete with paper bag, this past winter. It was amazingly good.

    I want Liquor De Malt so bad, just so I can have the bottle in the paper bag on my "Bottles of Pride" display shelf...

    Don't talk to me about the stuff I skipped over when I didn't know better. Shudder to think about it. Maybe that's why I have a buying problem now . . .

    I drank that one with Nawset... shot a review actually ( ), and I must say I was VERY impressed. Aged malt liquor tastes awesome? Who knew. And there was no distribution on that one is was a very limited, go to the brewery and get it event I believe. Only 300 bottle. produced

    But to answer the original question, I guess I'll have to say my 08 Smuttynose Really Old Brown Dogs. Sooo good and they just never seemed to get the recipe to taste like that again.

    I got two of these immediately following the release... Drank one, the other has been in the fridge with a sticker that says, "Don't touch" to keep folks from grabbing it during tastings. I should drink it or trade it.

    750 of '11 Blabaer. But, that's getting popped tomorrow night at an epic tasting! Rumors of Rare, Black Note, '10 Hunahpu, Double Black and some other humble Vermont brews are on tap....

    "Had" to get rid of my cellar when I moved from DC to the Bay Area in August (aka had a tasting party with friends). So my current cellar's crown jewel would probably be Firestone Walker 15th Anniversary.
