    Can't say I'm a fan.

    I've had a Fraoch that's been in the fridge since I can remember...wife bought it for me when she took a trip to Scotland with her mom back in 2000. Since it was our anniversary Sunday, we decided to open it, just for fun.

    Do not attempt.

    Beer that isn't meant to be aged will be bad. No shocker there. That Fraoch stuff is pretty gross to begin with.

    I've got a few barleywines in the cellar though from '99, '00, and '01 and they should be great. I recently had a '99 Bellevue Gueuze that was delicious.

    It all depends on the style and whether or not it's meant to be aged. 16 year old milk doesn't taste very good either.

    my wife has friends that got married and their parents had a bottle of champagne from their wedding they had saved in the basement(over 30 years).....needless to say sal the plumber was no sommelier. damn cork slid right out. my wife being considered the wine expert of the bridesmaids had the misfortune of polite trying it. :dhd:
