    The rumor mill has gone quiet on this release. Any more details on when and where it will be coming out.

    PS: Unless this is being released to stores..... ISO BB Cereal Killer.

    I heard that it will be released in stores... but not sure when or how far it will go. If it is anything like last years BA Shipwreck, most of it will stay in Michigan. I don't think other markets saw much of that at all.

    This is the correct answer. Same with BA Imp Stout.

    Ohio saw a lot of BA Shipwreck. Hoping for the same for the BA Imp Stout and BA Cereal Killer.
  7. I remember seeing a ton of shipwrecked in OH last year. Picked up some bottles. Was very excited about it. And it was really bad IMO. Tasted like a dusty attic.

    They are tapping kegs tonight at Arcadia, but when I was there this morning the two people I asked about bottles said that they hadn't heard that they would be on sale today. They were selling "vintage" bottles with a free glass. Last I heard from one of the reps, there were around 900 cases of Cereal Killer. I had heard recently that they were waiting on label approval from the LCC.

    Was just at Arcadia a few weeks ago and they were waiting on label approval prior to bottling...hopefully they won't be as a big a disappointment as BA Shipwreck was...
  13. I hope it will be that big of a disappointment. BA Shipwreck has vitamins and minerals and good teeth!

    I was able to get my hands on the bb imperial stout. Pretty good actually...maybe a little to much of a harsh bourbon taste but overall not bad at all. I got the single bottle at the brewery....

    How much we're 4 packs of BA cereal killer? Store by me has singles for $16, seems steep

    Puerto Rico? Yah, total ripoff. Nabbed last BA stout from Binny's SL for $7.99. BA CK was sold out though at same price.

    Yep, which is odd since usually he is competitive for a small shop. I'll just drink the non BA instead at that price

    $7 or $8 for a single in SE Michigan, if you could find one.

    Saw quite a few of these tonight. BM me if you would like to work something out.

    Anyone tried one of the BA Cereal Killers yet?

    No reviews up. I might open one tonight, but I gotta get up E A R L Y.
  21. The brewery has run out of these so your only hope now is to find it in good bottle shops. However, the brewery does have the Cereal Killer on tap.

    Had it at the brewpub two weeks back, pretty good. Lighter than I thought it would be, but tasty
  23. Had one tonight and its a big thumbs up here. Definitely wish I could have gotten more than three bottles if indeed this is all there is.

    InebriatedJoker shared a bottle with his wife, me, and schwaeh, and we all liked it. Very easy drinking, nice bourbon presence, chocolate malt, not overly boozy, overall a very very solid beer. I humbly disagree with your opinion.

    Then again, that's what I'm allowed to do, since that is my opinion.
  25. Absolutely. Maybe we had some from a bad part of the batch. Idk. I really wanted to like the beer. Unfortunately me and my friend who tried it and then one other person who drank one of my bottles I got all said it wasn't good. Overwhelming char and dust flavors. Just our opinions.

    I'd say bottle variation. I can tell you that if you got a bottle like the one we had, you'd be far from disappointed :)

    Yeah, BA Shipwreck is legit. Chatted up the server at a random restaurant that has legit craft beer selection a few months back....he comes back with a KBS and BA shipwreck porter. We crack the KBS first then much to my surprise the BA Shipwreck proceeds to blow it out of the water.

    I actually like it better than the BA Imperial (and thats saying something since I love RIS'). Oddly enough It's not as boozy as the Imperial. Surprisingly very well balanced.

    just had both imp and cereal. Very good but I'll pass on buying more and save my $ for Sucaba and Parabola. Central Waters about the same body and bigger bourbon presence so a better overall drink IMO (at half the price)

    Thanks.... I love Sucaba, don't care for Parobola (I'm odd I guess!) I'll hope for the BA Cereal Killer, and just get a couple BA Imp. Stouts to try.

    The stout is really not worth the $, however, it is yummy, you can see my review of it. Havent popped my bb killer yet so no comment on it yet

    It's an $8 beer, not $16

    The Cereal Killer is fantastic IMO. Reminds me of a thinner, more oaky Backwoods.
