Widmer Brotheres Reserve Barrel Aged Brrrbon (Fall 2010)

Our local Albertson's is either great at getting aged beers or terrible at rotating their stock.  We found this 2010 just sitting on the shelf the other day, asking to be bought.  After buying a few aged beers there we at least know they store at a decent temperature and typically don't ruin them.  Anyway, it was pre-aged for us!  

The beer was surprisingly smooth, especially considering the ABV.  I typically am not a fan of the winter ales, but this one was pretty good.  I can imagine if it hadn't been aged it would be a bit rough, but a few years made it delicious.  I'd consider picking up a 2012, but not drinking it for a few years.

See if it's distributed near you and what others think at Rate Beer.
