Never knew they had "a list"
City Bev still had a few bottles left this morning
So, best guess is that no store in the state will sell a 4 pack. Those poor FL guys and their 1 case of Hopslam and 1 4 pack of Black Note limits. They don't know REAL #firstworldproblems!!
Last year when I lived in FL I ended up with a total of 1.5 cases, now I'll be lucky to get a 6'er.
The last time I saw Hopslam on the floor with no limits was 2008. Usually 1/2 case limit at Sam's and 1 6 pack (or less) elsewhere in this area.
There goes your cascade sipping excursion. And all other surprise brews I had lined up......Cheers!!! Ummm.....YEE HAW!
best bet is just to develop a connection with another BA who lives near the brewery in Michigan... and one for every other badass brewery in the country for that matter
That was the only way I recieved four bottles of Black Note, lol. I have a buddy in MI. I only drank one of those four bottles, but hey I had a chance to taste it.
I hear ya man. I will have a hard time deciding what to do with my 4-pk from my guy in MI. Maybe I will figure something out by St. Patty's Day.
Bruisin' Ales in Asheville posted on Facebook that it was in, two-bottle limit per person:
I bet they're going for $8 apiece
Maybe, I'm not sure.
I'll be saving my money for KBS in April!
They are around $6.50 ea
Event Horizon > Black Notes > KBS, and the first 2 are a lot closer than the 3rd. In my humble opinion, of course.
That said, a bottle or 2 of Black Note would still be hard to resist if I came across it.
We are freakin lucky to have EvHo in our backyard...KBS still beats it on mouthfeel IMO and BlackNote comes in 3rd but all three are great.
All great beers, just comes down to individual taste. I'd probably go KBS, Event Horizon and Black Note. To each their own!
I agree with Bluecane and wolfeman. I like KBS less the more I try other world class BA stouts. I think the great burnt chocolate and balanced bourbon smoothness of EH beats KBS. However, like Bluecane, I don't turn down other world class BA stouts.
Of the notable world class BA stouts I've tried (not including variants):
AB Huna > BT > BBPt5 > CBS > BCBS > BN > EH > Parabola > Black Betty > KBS
Melange 3, Abyss, and FW Anniversaries would fit in there somewhere but they are not technically pure BA stouts.
RareR Dos = Bramble > AB Zhukov > BA Speedway > BT > CCB Cognac Sweet > Huna > BCBS Coffee > EH > Black Note > Uncle Jacob's > BCBS > CBS (admittedly an older bottle) > BBPt5 = 50/50 4 Roses > KBS > Cherry Rye > Parabola.
I would happily buy all except maybe the last 3 (depending on price, of course).
Damn, it's been a good 14 months since I started drinking craft haha.
wow, Bramble really?? to each their own
I forgot to put RareR DOS, BA Speedway, and Uncle Jacobs in there. I thought BA Speedway was a little overrated too. Uncle Jacobs was better the second and third time but still very boozy.
I agree with you guys, AB Hunahpu may be the best beer I've ever had. Only thing close in my book is Matt. I detect an apple brandy theme here!
how about AB Cherry Saison from Olde Hickory / Busy Bee ???
need some of that shit in my life
You will see me in there early
Total Wine in North Hills, Raleigh got a case today. They have a one 4 pack per person limit and they're keeping it behind the counter.
Yeah, Bramble is my jam. Forgot about AB Huna: blasphemy, I know, but I put it in between regular Huna and Coffee BCBS.
No pun intended about Bramble hahaha.
OK, this pisses me off. As limited as this stuff was, the local shops didn't get taken care of but Total Wino did? Un-fucking-believable! And you just blew my theory that nobody in NC would sell 4 packs.
Tell TW to "byte you".
If it makes you feel better total whine got the heisman on the 4 cases that Charlotte got..
What makes me feel better is giving the Heisman to anything I have to beg for
Any more confirmed sightings in RTP market? One post re Total Wine N Hills and a rumor Sam's is sitting on a case. Is that it, or are there others? Did we get more? Only other TWs like CLT? Thread has gone eerily quiet.
Haven't checked the Total Wine in Charlotte yet. I'll report back.
I was in at Sam's yesterday, and the guy I spoke with said he had no idea about when Black Note would be around.
I called Durham Total Wine, and the lady seemed annoyed that North Hills TW got but Durham didn't. Bottom line, though, is that they don't have any at TW Durham.
Ditto on TW Briar Creek. They were surprised that north Raleigh got some, and also annoyed. It's long gone, i'm sure.
i heard TW Charlotte didnt get any...(only 4 cases in charlotte, 2 to bottle shops, 2 to restaurants)
I happened to be in the North Hills area yesterday when I checked this thread. Dropped in, asked if there was any Bells Black Note left, employee A asked employee B, Employee B said "bells note???", I reiterated "black note," and after looking around a bit they grabbed me the last 4 pack from behind the counter.
Tight ship they run in North Hills. I'm going to spend a few extra bucks at Tasty Bev this weekend as penance.
How much was it?
So from what I heard 4 cases in RTP - Sam's (sitting on it - Assume they will either sell it today with the bells tap takeover or raffle it off with KBS in a month or so), TW-NH (Sold Out), Busy Bee???, and????
Well I probably know of one of the restaurants and that is Duckworth's. I'll hunt the bottle shops.
25 and change. No clue where else some may be. Tasty's my store and I didn't ask them about it.
Damn 14 months? Dude's putting in some serious work!
