The best before date on this is July 2016. I would have to strongly disagree. While the carbonation is waning and the mouthfeel is thinning out a bit, this is still incredible. Wonderful Scotch barrel influence still persists.
Exquisite. My last bottle. I have had 1 bottle every two years since this was released. This is as good as it ever was. Tons of bitter chocolate and dark espresso flavours. An Irish, French, Russian stout.
Low acidity. Not all that serendipitous.
