Who's been drinking this
Time has been good to that beer. It mellowed but kept all its character.
Bottle at Home
Suffers only because it was in a vertical tasting with the 2013. Amazing difference: much less aroma and sharper, rawer flavors - a little spikey sweet, a little fire. This would have been superb on its own but it gets knocked down because, like Matthew McConaughey, it's still chasing its future self.
After four months of aging, considerably mellowed out. Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful.
