Black Note 750's: Worth Trading?

Discussion in 'Beer Trading Talk & Help' started by JohnB87, Jan 10, 2013.

  1. i don't see what you're getting at. right below his post is another one stating it'll go further than he claimed.

    yeah, no one knows exact counts... but it's more than the 1100 bottles that came out before, and the first concern is "omg how can i spin batch 1 trade bait" :p

    actually, i don't hate it at all. when demand >> supply, it's an expected consequence. people forget that, at one time, beatification batch 3 and firestone 10 were wales, and were distributed. this isn't a 2012 development or even a midwest-only thing. everything has happened before, and everything will happen again.

    more than anything, i find the shelfwale thing an amusing place to snark - particularly when, as supply goes up, people try to spin it the other way.

    do i sound like i do?

    It is worth about $23 worth of similarly released beer. That has not changed.

    And by "not changed" we mean people will argue for weeks about what counts as "similarly released".

    More or less. This is why it is just easier to deal with friends and previous trading partners.

    Let us remember, the easier it is to quantify the less valuable it is. We cannot seem to quantify this, it must be worth an awful lot. ;)

    while not wide distribution in bottle format, kegs of Black Note (and their subsequent growler fills) are not exactly Michigan/midwest only...

    No you are correct. That was never in question.

    Regarding aging Black Note in 750ml compared to 12 oz, I don't see this beer improving after aging regardless of bottle size. It's not too hot fresh and the body is fairly thin, so I don't see what can possibly improve. Just my .02

    Make that $.04. Black Note has a body that is similar to Eclipse...which is kinda funny, because they both also share being massively overrated! Ahhh, commonalities. ;)

    BUT, at least Black Note lives within a realm a reasonable affordability.

    I wonder how BA would've reacted if 3floyds did this instead of bells. The possibilities are endless. Brandy vanilla in 12oz bottles. 2 weeks after DLD.

    I had blacknote on tap a few months back. I thought it was surprisingly underwhelming. I don't think your missing out on anything crazy if you can't land it.

    For $52 per four pack.

    Is a 3L Russian River worth trading for?

    The brewery would be set on fire and burned to the ground.

    No. I'd much rather prefer the 12oz bottles.
