This is real beer and while I can understand some people don't like it, there is no issue with over-age, it is very fresh indeed. I find it goes well with any meat-based dinner, say a stew or roast chicken. There is a lot of bad wine being sold for more money (on a unit basis) than XO, this is so much a better value.
This is what makes diversity such a great thing.
