    The lesson here is that if it doesn't sell the first time (XV Party), or the second time (DLD), try to sell it a third time at the same price but use the term 'limited supply'!

    60% of the time, it works every time. :)

  7. I'm surprised they aren't selling BS for $40 or $50 and saying it's "Cellared Baller Stout"!

    ... the last couple times I've had Baller, I actually really enjoyed it... kinda made me wish I hadn't extra'd/LIF'ed so many of mine away...

    Just checked the tap list from yesterday and there is a beer called "Stack N Stabb" as a $10 Bomber. Apparently a belgian strong. Did either of you guys that were there yesterday try it?

    Baller Stout is actually quite nice in my humble opinion.

    So you're saying that Baller Stout has real bits of Panther in it?

    I opened a bomber of it the other night. It was a solid Beglian Saison-style ale. Pretty balanced and tasty.

    I wanted Baller to be great. It was very good, but not $30 great.

    Stack and Stabb for $10 is a solid buy. Will probably get released to stores in Chicago soon though as it has an official label etc.

    Liked Baller better than any DL i've tasted....I guess for once since there's low demand I don't have to debate trading what I think is great for something I want....

    I have six bottles for sale from my basement and hell ill only charge 25 (joke). I think the best thing about baller stout was that I was able to trade one for a Black Tuesday. I keep hoping it will age into something but I have a feeling this beer isn't going to be like the chubby girl I teased in fifth grade that turned into a fox at 20.

  28. I hope they name it Baller-er Stout.
  29. Hell, I was happy I stumbled on case of Gumballhead today, it has all but disappeared here in Indy.

    Firestone Walker has provided an excellent example over the past several years of how beer should be blended. Of course Three Floyds is not going to care or even consider blending to taste. It was like kids at a soda fountain.

    lurchingbeast Initiate (0) Illinois Feb 19, 2009

    Blending to taste doesn't work here as they can't only release Darkness under the FFF brand.

    It's a good beer, its just not $30 good.

    Darkness>Albert>Baller>Dark Lord>Beer Geek.

    I really liked beer geek weasel the first time i had it, but subsequent bottles have had odd/off flavors and been more acidic than the first one i tried. i give up with mikkeller outside the Beer Geek Rodeo/Whiskey Weasel. I'm done with their overpriced lotto tickets

  39. I still dont get all the hate.. If you dont like it dont drink it. They make awesome beer IMO and im apparently am not the only one that thinks this since the pub is always packed, DLD sold out, ZD is always selling out, people drive hours just to buy a case.. GABF awards, 4 beers on the top 100 list, and they where the first brewery invited to the Firestone Walker Invitational where they also received the peoples choice award.

    I'll grab a bottle this weekend, and judging from the love, it should still be there.
