Westvleteren XII
 
I received a six pack as part of a competition prize package. How well will this stuff age? Should it be drunk fairly fresh or can some/all be held onto for an extended period?

It should age with the best of them. I got two bottles i'm holding on too. There are youtube videos people drinking a 20+ year old one. There is no rush on these brews and i heard their outstanding at 5 years. I need to enter into the competition you entered to get more :D

Thanks. I was gonna take them to share with my brew club at the year's first meeting next week, but I might toss them in the back of the fridge instead.
