This beer is no longer being produced by the brewery.
4.19 on the BA matrix. A good pop of the cork told me that this was going to be enjoyable. 10 years old! Damn!

Bottled in 2010! This is amazing for being 10 years old. I'm really glad I bought a few of these & tucked one of these away to aged,my patience definitely paid off! Glad I made the choice to start drinking craft beer right after my 21st birthday in 2009.Earned the Wheel of Styles (Level 36) badge! Earned the The Wine of Beers (Level 26) badge!
Working through some old bottles. This has certainly aged gracefully! Chocolate notes are now present. Cheers Jack and Ken!Earned the Untappd at Home badge! Earned the Photogenic Brew (Level 6) badge!
