Who's been drinking this

Best way to age an excellent beer without temptation is to forget you ever bought it! More than a year plus over the past tasting, this was still very much as I remembered, based on the notes. Still very sweet, still very much kissed with liquor, but malty and smooth and somehow balanced over all that. Still a winner, and glad that I have one left to boot!
Bottle at A Friend's
Very smooth, sweet, buttery, dark fruit flavors. Boozy.
You know, this was so sweet -- sweet with malt, with whiskey, with toffee, but totally perfect in that context. Just a superbly constructed beer.
