    Of the 4 stouts Kyle put out, the three I have had have all been great. Mouthfeel, flavor, and aroma. Wanna try a barrel aged version.

    I'm scared of the pricetag that his BA stouts would demand. Sure, I will likely buy 1 to try it out...but if he continues to use those ingredients (which I have little reason to believe he would ever skimp on that part) then it will be a hefty price.

    On the + side, I doubt it would ever reach $100/bottle ADWTD levels....at least I can hope not.

    I'm guessing the one you didn't have was beans? Shit was absolute trash and nothing like the Grasp I had. Thin, harsh flavors, no vanilla basically all coffee and it was that bitter overroasted coffee flavor to boot. Everyone at the share was blown away how bad it was compared to Grasp.

    crazy the bottle i had was the opposite, smooth and full of vanilla, i guess there bottle variation?

    it was my least favorite of the last 4 tho but not by a lot

    edit: well never mind looks like i liked it more than territory

    I heard there was indeed bottle variation, which is a shame for a beer so expensive. I was so confused because the Grasp we had was great.

    I liked Grasp the most so far. Thickest and I don't like hazelnuts, but in this beer, it was great. The beans was the next best, for me. The BA of the coffee bean really worked well. The territory was good but third best. Looking forward to Proper Dose.

    They announce that the release will be $100 for a 375. People collectively lose their shit, all the posts about it get deleted on all social media accounts. Then they make a post saying ADWTD day is cancelled, and delete that shortly after. Radio silence since.

    I'm still not buying they actually cancelled it. They're just gonna do a pop up event like FAHA

    : facepalm : Haven't we been speculating how long it will take breweries to combat secondary values and charge accordingly? First one to try gets cold feet less than a few hours after posting release details.

    They're definitely not the first, I mean shit look what thread we're in. IMO the first was Toppling Goliath

    Side note, not trying to thread jack. I thought I was in the SD thread not a brewery specific one. Carry on...

    I read someplace on IG (DDB maybe? - if that’s reliable) that they were instead going to quietly sell it to only the friends/family, and special brewery regulars. The poster could’ve been joking, but I wouldn’t be surprised if that’s what they end up doing. Or, if they did “on-site only” bottles for a lesser price.
