    you must have had it too cold. I've had it twice. Once was from the fridge and all I tasted was soy sauce. I had another a couple months ago at room temp and it was great - lots of chocolate, fruity and sherry notes. I've got another bottle that I'll open soon.

    Oh, they were all 95

    Yep. I am as well.
    A fine beer may be judged with only one sip, but it's better to be thoroughly sure.

    I've got a case of the 94 and a case of the 95. They have always been kept in my celler and in good condition. I bought them when they came out with hopes that it would cellar nicely. I've only tasted one of the 95's at the Extreme Beer Festival in Boston a couple of years ago. It was a small sample and not enough to really judge. When this beer was first released. It was a very nice brew and I really would have expected it to age well. It was a really new and exciting development on the beer scene back then. BBC may be the progenitors of the extreme beer movement.

    Yeah, a case of both the 94 and 95. These cases sold for about $100.00 each when they came out back in those years. So many who bought a full case were hoping to cellar them. I remember much banter about this brew in 94. How it would cellar and how to store it since the bottles are corked like wine. I recall chatting with folks on the old Prodigy Ntwork beer forum back then. It was in the days that the WWW was just opening up and many people were still on private systems like Prodigy. Lew Bryson was a regular on that board too.
