I picked up the ceramic beauty tonight. How long should I hold onto it before I drink it? Is it good now, or should I put it away for a while? I can get another to age pretty easily right now, so I'm willing to drink it.

Go Get another. Drink this one now, then drink the other as long from now as you can stand to wait.

I haven't had Crusty in a number of years. Back in the day, I thought it was decent right away. However, I actually put one on a closet and forgot about it (it really does work sometimes), and around 18 months later found it. It was quite good at that point. I wonder what it would have been like after four or five years.

I sampled the 2006 Old Crustacean this weekend at the Seattle International Beerfest. It rocked. I'd definately pick up another bottle, and drink one now. Write down a description and then open the next one in a year, two, or more and compare.

Sounds good. I'll have people to share with in a week I'm pretty sure I don't want to tackle that one solo

Resurrecting this thread, I am drinking a 2008 right now and looking for a recipe, so if you still have this, now is the time. Great apricot and plum flavors in this, and a good dose of biscuit to round it out. So smooth!
