Other than being quite a bit more dry, and getting a > vinous character, it's still very drinkable! Glad I'm not the only one "losing" beer in my basement. Admittedly, the stout came from a shelf that I had intentionally stored beer onto for aging and sampling over time - I had just forgotten it was there. Never intended it to produce teenagers and beyond! On another shelf, elsewhere in the basement, I have a 4 pack of Thomas Hardy that I've drunk two of: one when it was new, one at, I think, 15 years old. Will be drinking the third at 20, and the last at 25, if I stick to my plan. The keg of porter? Totally blind-sided me. I honestly thought it full of water. Might have to save that for the next time I attend an AABG meeting before I broach it. Then again, with my attendance record, that might add a few more years to its age... - - -- See ya!
