I have a 1975 Courage Russian Imperial Stout stashed away now, something I plan to drink next year. It will be the first (and likely only) beer I'll try that is older than I am.
I had a 1975 3 years ago and it was really neat. Easily the oldest bottle I've ever drunk. Not necessarily the best at that point, but it was more for the experience than anything. My memories are that I was surprised that it still had a gentle carb, and that it tasted like a good stout, but had way too much soy sauce character. Kinda like a better version of that horrible sam adams blue bottle beer, whose name I've expunged from my memory.
Had two great beers this year to celebrate the birth of our second kid. Deus (which although available at the LCBO still ticks my box as something awesome) and a Niagara Eisbock (I think 2001).
