I had one from last year that tasted great. Lookiing forward to the '12 vs '13 this weekend.
I agree. What's weird was the first 3 bottles were fine, I had two 4 packs so I'm not sure which bottles came from which 4 pack but they both should be from the same batch but so far the last two bottles i've had have tasted infected.
I've heard of them having problems with QC for past batches. I'm far from an expert so maybe someone else knows more...
Does anyone know if they sell 4-packs or cases at the brewery? And what the cost is?
Yes they do, if i remember right its around $15 per 4 pack
It is awesome! Just picked up a case!!
Just landed in Ny. Cant wait, cracking a double crooked tree as i type. Delicous!
love it. maybe even more than founders RIS.
still can't find any
I'm not positive but I think they are 12/13 down here near Peoria.
A place I buy a lot of my beer got some cases of this in and I'm debating whether or not I want to buy a case.
Where in NY?
Yep, same taste. It's like a sour stout.
Just opened a cellared '09 Plead and wow does this get better with time. It reminds me of what happens to Expedition. Basically the dark fruit flavors are more prelevant and the roast ones goes away completely.
See that I dig
I just popped a fresh one a couple nights ago. I was quite impressed. One of the best non barrel aged imperial stouts I have ever had. The price of 9-12 for a four pack makes it that much better. Im really looking forward to trying the BB version of this.
set me back $15 for the last 4 pack here in Indy. no doubt it'll be worth it.
Blind tasted the '12 vs the '13, both my wife preferred the '12 but the '13 was still damn good. I've recently done this with FBS, FIS and Pt5th; year old is 6-0 is my house with KBS up next hopefully. FBS is the only one that tasted completely different.
As someone who feels lucky that I was able to land two singles of it, I would have to go ahead and say I hope you have bought one since you posted this. I REALLY, REALLY HOPE YOU DID.
If it's available in your area, the Dark Horse stout variety case is a good option for acquiring some Pt5. $38 a case, and includes 6 Pt5s. Given that Pt5 goes for upwards of $5 a bottle here, the mix case is a great value...plus you get 18 other Dark Horse stouts to enjoy, all of them good.
I still have some in my cellar. I'll have to crack one and see how it's drinking.
wow that would be awesome for me. I'm pretty sure its not gonna be available in my area.
What the hell? I'd buy the fuck out of that if ONLY for the Plead The Fifth (I like those other beers, don't get me wrong).
Montgomery County, MD sucks. They send nothing good out here... Stupid county laws overriding the state laws!
Best RIS made in MI imo and loving the fact that I can still find them lingering around hole in the wall bottle shops.
Best non-barrel aged stout I've ever had. Sorry, other guys...
Plead The 5th is fantastic. Living in Michigan has its perks; Pt5th and Double Crooked Tree in beer stores!
Sadly I have to say I have only had Pt5 with a year of age on it, but I never knew it was tis hoppy. Lots of pine and not as ashy as with some with age on it. Still my favorite non BA stout though.
Luckily DC and VA are right next door. At least great beer is within an hours drive.
I'll second this. I just picked up another 4 pk. So delicious.
Yeah.. that's a valid point. I'm just bitter that one of the better beer stores in the county (half a mile down the street) can't get much of anything. Convenience is always nice.
Do you mind sharing where you just picked up a 4? I was in Madtown 2 weeks ago and everyone was out.
One store only let me buy 1 bottle, then another encouraged me to buy a fourth 4 pack, but I politely declined.
Gotta plan ahead; it's almost KBS and BCBW time.
I've never seen any bottles for sale at the brewery besides 4 Elf
There was some ashy, smoke, cigarette like taste that I didn't enjoy too much, but I have some 2012 coming my way - will give it another try. I did really enjoy bourbon aged version of it though.
I say BETTER than FIS
They posted on their FB page awhile back that they had both Pt5 and Double Crooked Tree bottles for sale in their store. Probably want to call them first and find out.
Did you buy that at Bella Vista? I think they put it together themselves which is why other markets may not see it.
Oh lord I hope not.
You definetly underpaid. Each of the regular stouts in the pack cost about 50$ a case and Pt5 goes for ~80.
I think I got the variety case for ~55ish.
