    I just picked up a four pack on a recent trip to Florida. Being a Texan I probably won't get the chance to pick up some more of this brew for a while. I've had two and they were pronominal. Would it be worth cellaring the other two or should I drink now? Their website says you can, but I just wanted so see if any other BA's had any experice with aging this one. Thanks

    Id say they hold up pretty well to age. Bout a year is what i got out of em last time I cellared them. You could even go as far as 1.5 yrs. but that starts to push the envelope.

    I prefer WnB with a year on it compared to fresh.

    1 year is the sweet spot for me. You can always throw one in the fridge to see if the cellared one is different.

    Waaaaay too much coffee fresh for me. Even mixed half with Moo Hoo it's a coffee bomb. I'd love a year old bottle so I can taste the beer instead of coffee.

    When it hits shelves I buy 2 4 packs. One to drink fresh, 1 to cellar a year. I do a side by side comparison the next year & I've always prefered the aged. I enjoy it fresh but that year definitely mellows it out.

    The coffee flavor and aroma when it's fresh is the biggest draw for me with this beer. For that reason, I personally would consume WnB as fresh as possible.

    Exactly, the coffee is what makes it great to me.

    How did they relate to pronouns? Were they reflexive beers?
