Really? How long and how (bottle placement...etc)? Educate me in PM or on here if you get a chance or have time. I have two bottles left and really want to try the Coffee Stout. I may get it tomorrow if they have any left.
On that note, I had a bottle of Dogfish pumpkin ale that sat in the fridge for a month or so and while I wasn't impressed with it at all when fresh...it had more pumpkin flavor after it sat.
