I caved and spent $20 on a bottle of DFH Fort.
Anytime I cellar beer I like to buy at least two bottles. One of these bottles is consumed immediately while the other ages for 12 months. This beer was too expensive for me to justify buying two, so I wont find out how it tastes until 2013. At 18% ABV this will age wonderfully and I very well may let it go for a few years.
Maybe I can live vicariously through one of you until then. Has anyone else tried this?
