I have a few bomers left of a 2.5 yr old Black Hefe that my friend and I made after having too much to drink at a local Brewery / LHBS.

Friend, "Lets make a heffe!" leaning on the bar.
Me, "Uhh, OK!"
-"Lets make it...BLACK!"
"yEA!"
-"Lets put a bunch of LME in it and make it like...15% ABV!"
"wHy NoT?"

Bad idea. 2 Lbs. of Black P. in a 5 gal all grain batch with WHO KNOWS how much LME.

Result: 23 ish % ABV Soy Sauce! Its aging well though. Kind of like a Port (Wine). Kind of like Stone Russian Imperial Stout!

Have about 16 22oz bombers of a Vanilla Porter that I bottled 10/22/2011. First one we opened tasted great, thought I really nailed it. Everyone I have opened since has been a chalky gritty nightmare. Haven't popped one open in about 8 months, keep meaning to.........

1990 Thomas Hardy's Ale.

I also still have a few bottles of barleywine I brewed around 1996. I opened two last year. The first was fantastic. The second, while drinkable, was just bland.

I have a bottle of Wurzberg Lager from the early 1970s. I'm sure it's just delicious...

I have a bottle of 1997. It will remain unopened because I just can't stand to drink the stuff. I bought three bottles total about five years ago and haven't drank more than a sip out of the first two. It is quite possibly the worst thing I've ever tasted.
