I agree ^. I love the play with aces, particularly if villain had been raising a lot of his buttons and then just flats here to look a little weak. He got his money in preflop with AA, it's all he could ask for.
You guys may be stacking em off in this hand anyway. You said "your hand is only as good as the flop makes it." Turns out the flop made his hand pretty damn good...top set is nothing to sneeze at and he's not putting you on KQ if you just check the BB preflop.
