If you had that aggressive a fermentation, I would suspect that you had a pretty big starter. If you pitch yeast aggressively, fermentation doesn't take too long.

Course beer is like any food product. If you let it sit (age) the flavors will blend and change. Sometimes that's good, sometimes it lessens the beer.

That's why it's an art man!

The beer profile is going to change more than likely.. Usually it is going to get better in time and more flavors are going to pop. The carbonation is going to be spotty at best at this point unless you keg em.

I would not count 9 days as being at all likely to be repeatable. I have never packaged a beer in less than 2 weeks.

2 days of bottle conditioning is unlikely to ever happen again. I have tried bottles at 2 weeks of conditioning and I would say that less than 1/4 of them were properly carbonated. ALL of my beers have tasted better after 3 week and longer bottle conditioning.

I find it puzzling that you say the flavor got worse with age. That is very unusual.

In summary I would say that it was definitely a fluke that the beer was carbonated and I am very surprised you say it tasted good and got worse.
