On tap. Haha, I started to get my kegarator in shape and I discovered that I had left behind a pint or 2 from the last time I made beer. Surprisingly, the keg was still holding pressure after all that time. Just for the hell of it, I took a sip. Not good but not horrible either.

I have a 2.5 yo porter that is still pretty good.  Been under pressure and cold the whole time.

being cold def slows down the aging process in my experience.

I've had a barleywine last through the 11 year mark. I have some meads that are older than that too. Now, I've also had some other lower alcohol beers that were years old that definitely did not age well, but these higher alcohol ones tend to age pretty well.

It was probably a Tripel. I was most surprised that it still was carbonated and the CO2 tank was still half filled after all those gears. Not surprisingly, that corny was my choice for my first beer in years.
