    Immort Ale ages really well. Hated it when fresh but after 2 years in the cellar the beer really came to life. The oakiness diminished and the maltiness really came through, became for like a barleywine than an American Strong Ale.

    Scott that is a great point. Many high alcohol beers can be aged for extended periods of time under the right conditions. When aging a beer keep in mind the “additives” to a beer will diminish or mellow over time, such as oak, spices, and especially hops.

    Fantastic review . . . I have to agree with you 100% on Immort Ale. Had the chance to try it a few weeks back while I was in North Carolina; definitely lives up to the Dogfish Head reputation!
