08-08-08 RIS - One year later
Anyone have any?

I have one of each left from our swap and a few of mine.

I'll be out of town over the weekend, so I wont be able to post day of.

Anyone else?

Same exact story here. One each from every recipient (Evan!, brewt00l, and Trencher) but am out of town at the moment.

Although I had another one of Evan!'s about a month ago when I met up with him briefly when I was in VA and it was damn fine. Packaged well - no hints of oxidation. Low carb, and had a nice smoky note that had developed. Went down too easy for a beer >8%.

ETA: I have about 10 of my own as well.

I have about 7-8 of my own in the cellar and moved 2 of them into the fridge this morning.

I think I know what I shall be sipping on tomorrow night.

Now...if only I could find a recording of the opening ceremonies from last year.

I might have one or two left. The last time I tried one, it was excellent.

I've got one or two left, and I'll be sampling tomorrow (my birthday) as well...

I had one tonight. I had carbonation issues with my 888's, and this one was by far the least carbonated. The aroma was incredible - the pour exploded with the scent of what can only be described as chocolate caramel sauce. The flavor is still very complex with a big, roasty bite (my accidental substitution of Carafa III is quite evident). Prost!

I had one from Chriso, Professor Frink and my own and shared them among 3 friends. Couldn't find the other one I had.

All three held up amazinngly well with mine and Chriso, having the most chocolately flavor. Frinks carbonation was the most resilient, with mine being the least carbonated.

Let me tell you, our final blend of all 3 was spectacular.

I had Chriso's as well, and even a year later I remember that strong chocolate flavor. It was really pleasant.
