I found a 2008 bottle of this in the cellar. Figured I would give it a go to see how it held up. It was properly stored, so that shouldn't be an issue for it.

Appearance is the usual thick-ish blackness. The smell surprised me with a lot of baker's chocolate type notes. A little bit of booziness still there too. The taste is still pretty darned good., if a little sharper than I remember. The after-taste, however, brings a little bit of "funk" and sharp alcohol bite. The feel is still quite good, though.

Overall, it's good but not great. Given that this is almost certainly past the "best by" date, that's not a surprise. I think it's worth a try if you can do it, but be warned that it will be a much sharper version of anything close to fresh for this beer. It still doesn't suck, though.
