    I posted an ISO/FT for some 2009 BCBS and got no takers. Not interested in the bombers just the 12oz's and only one or two bottles. Any Idea what that vintage normally goes for? cuz I either didn't offer enough or no one has it.

    I'm opening a rare at Christmas and want to try the regular BCBS with the same age on it for comparison.

    I thought 2008 bcbs was the equivalent year, am I wrong?

    Just saw your ISO - maybe be more specific with what you're willing to trade. You mention breweries but not beers in your post. Good luck!

    I think nc41 is right 2 years in the barrels and released in 2010 so the 2008 Bourbon County should have been the base beer.

    No it's 2009 he should look for. Both Rare and the 2009 vintage were brewed in 2008. The regular BCBS was released after aging for a year (2009). Rare aged for an extra year and came out in 2010.

    Why wouldn't you want to compare a bomber to bomber? Some people claim bombers age differently than 12 oz but either way if you're comparing it to Rare wouldn't you want to keep it as close as possible?

    I was thinking the exact same thing.

    I was hoping someone with the beer would sort of help me figure it out it would be different if I wanted a 4 pack or part of a vertical but I'm sort of unsure about what a single 12oz bottle of a vintage seasonal would pull down. Not many trades to reference for something like this.
    I always see the bombers being offered and traded for a lot more than I really wanna give up to get the beer. I figure a single 12oz would be easier and I just want it for a rough comparison anyways we don't live in an ideal world and close is good enough for me in this instance.

    I would be happy with the 2008 @HighLowJack said he had if I can't find a 2009. But again it comes down to what to offer for it.

    Maybe I should pose the question differently. If you had a 2008 or 2009 bcbs what would you trade it for or try to get for a single 12oz? I trade a lot but its usually with friends who we just look out for stuff for each other I have little to no reference for actual going rates for beers.

    Personally I thought the 2009 Bcbs was the best stout I ever had, absolute perfection. I have 2 2008 chilling probably need to drink them less they suffer the fate of the oxidized 2007 bottles.

    Actually I'm going to the NG R&D release again this year wonder if I could do 1:1 wild peach for 2009 bcbs bomber. Guess I'll wait till I try the wild peach and see how some other ISO/FTs go.

    I would hope you would be able to trade the bomber for the peach, but given the ISO's for the peach lately I doubt this would happen.

    I also think people who have it are overvaluing the 2009 bomber quite a bit.

    But back on point, I recently traded 2 4 packs of 2010 and 1 4 pack of 2009 BCBS for
    BA fantastic voyage, black butte Xxv, , Abraxas, and abyss, if that helps you at all.

    You may have miss understood me I'm going to the NG release so there would be no need for me to trade for the peach I'd be trading for the bomber. Could care less what people are offering for one in fact those people who make ridiculous offers that become the standard could be blamed most for the state trading is in now. I'd rather the beer go to someone who isn't a moron like those people are.

    Thank you though for actually giving me something to go off of. A regular trading partner saw this thread and is gonna hook me up with a 12oz of 2008 which is close enough for me so I think I'm good on this.

    sorry guess I misunderstood. Your post is very interesting to me because just this morning I posted a poll asking that very thing, are insane ISO'S bad for trading. The mods deleted it unfortunately

    I would have voted yes we drive the system of limited releases and trading only we can be blamed for their condition. I think we are starting to covet beer a lot more than we are respecting it these days.

    Sorry about your thread that happens sad to see good meaningful topics get deleted and other pointless threads going on forever.
