    I drank a bottle of barrel aged hibernation from my cellar a few days ago, but have no idea what year it's from. I didn't see a year on the label when I looked. I foolishly took a picture of just the side of the label. Can any of you beer sleuths figure out the year from this very limited information?

    April, 1964?

    Normally they put the vintage on the label, like in plain sight?

    Was there a year that they didn't? This was definitely at least 3 years old, and I definitely didn't see a year on the label.

    I'd guess 2012 then.

    Hmmm... part of the issue may have been that I kept thinking hibernation but this was definitely old ruffian. So yeah, there's that.

    Turns out it was '11 though. The date was on it, but 2 vertical lines just blended in w the rest of the label artwork.

    Spooky. I saw this thread and thought '1964'.

    Weird.
