It seems this bottle is trading off the charts right now, any thoughts on why?
Groupthink, hivemind, etc. All it takes is an ISO or two (or a thread here) offering desirable bottles for a beer and the "value" skyrockets. The freaking trading forums have become a microcosm of Wall Street.
To further add to the hype, I had 8oz of it about 2 months ago and it was probably the best beer I've ever had. Easily the best of the variants.
Released nearly two years ago, 433 bottles, and is likely the best variant of Dark Lord? That's probably why.
A) Only released once in bottles (433 bottles total) and like stxSS07, there have been a quite a few ISO's recently when I haven't seen one for months
B) It's really really tasty (More important than A)
Personally, it was my favorite DL treatment out of all the '11 and '12 variations.
Because it can.
No, really....that is the answer.
It's the only DL that's drinkable
You don't find the PVW Dark Lord drinkable?
Bourbon Vanilla isn't drinkable either? Or Bourbon, or cognac?
I'm happy with "regular" Dark Lord. Picky bastards.
He forgot to eat the worm.
Funny man. All the BA Dark Lords are worth the hype. I will echo the sentiments stated above that Brandy Vanilla is probably the best. I would go as far as to say it is the best beer I have ever tasted. Been trying to land one forever, but with how it has very recently exploded in value, it probably won't happen.
I was under the assumption that it always traded very high, so I'm not sure why some here are complaining about a "recent" surge in value...
That's my opinion and youre just gonna have to like deal with it broseph
Much like an asshole, everyone has one.
IS the brandy vanilla really that good?
I can't wait until later this year when we get the gang together and open it now.
Agreed. I have been trying to get one for awhile with no luck. I have a bottle of Bourbon Vanilla plus that I am willing to swap for one. I might have to try again and bump up the stakes, but who knows how many are even left.
Of the 8 variants that have been bottled, it is my second favorite only to the 2012 Bourbon Dark Lord. However, I got to try a growler of the bourbon vanilla from 2011 (not bottled) and that was the very best variant, IMHO.
And they all stink
Could anyone confirm which BA DLs were on tap at DLD '12? Was it Brandy Vanilla and PvW DL?
If so, Brandy Vanilla is my favorite beer of all time. It's fucking amazing.
I can 100% confirm BRANDY Vanilla was in pub early during DLD (asked twice and was on sign at some point). I will let someone else answer on PvW.
I've tried sevrel times getting it but nothing ever pans out.
This beer is my white whale
I still say BBVDL > BVDL, but I also thought a bottle of White Chocolate smelled a little like brisket, so what do i know?
I hope they make Apple Brandy DL this year out of DL12. The apples will pair nicely!
Brandy Vanilla Dark Lord gives me a serious raging beer boner! Yeah I know its crazy talk, but its true.
I was in the first group to get in to the pub at DLD last year, and PvW DL was not on tap. That would have kicked ass. I had 2 glasses of Brandy Vanilla and some lunch and got out of there, and it had already kicked by that time. I am pretty sure no other BA DL was on tap or I would have been trying those.
It was eventually put on tap after brandy vanilla blew.
After recently trying a bottle of regular Brandy DL, I can only hope that the vanilla is holding strong in the Brandy Vanilla.
So did you already get rid of your bottle?
gawd i really want to try this beer. i didn't think i'd really care for the vanilla DLs because DL is awful and bourbon DL is okay but not special and then i had bourbon vanilla dark lord and it tasted like wonderful and now i am sad.
Wooden hell is on it's way down, I'm sure this could get done.
no one ever finishes the saying with "and they all stink!"
I just put the ball on the tee man, then wait for someone to whack it.
