Default Kegsicle

The other day, about 45 days into a new keg, it sputtered when I filled up my growler to take to a party. I thought that was awfully quick to run out of a keg.

Has anyone had this happen before? The beer tasted a bit bitter but not unbearable.

New approach to Eisbier! Never happened to me, but I like my beers around 40 degrees or warmer.

That reminds me, I have a bunch of Chocolate Vanilla Porter that I wanted to try as an ice beer.

Not so sure that'd be good with a bitter beer- does that make it an imperial?

Holy crap, I've never seen a kegsicle before. That's pretty cool.

As an aside, I've also never had a keg last 45 days

It never seemed to taste more alcoholic but i guess its ABV had to bump up. More bitter than anything but it was a Rye Pale Ale so I thought it was a funny side effect of the rye.
