Default Thomas Hardy's Ale

I've got a couple of bottles of THA in my garage refrigerator. One is vintage 1995, the other 2004. I was told to just hold on to them, that they would age like a fine wine. Any truth to this? Also, any info on THA would be appreciated.
Thanks,
Jeff

THA does age well, but I'd say give that older one a pour. I had some at about 8 years and it was nice. Some fine sherry tones, well rounded malt.

i've had this beer many times(i buy it every time i can find it) and its always been a great beer no matter what the age. i've had bottles from 1994 that we just outstanding!! if you can wait on it, let it age for a while, i've heard that thier still drinking bottles of this from 1965!!! keep it, savor it, love it!!
