Hamrick's posted that they have some Black Crack.
Did they happen to mention the price? They've been a little out of whack lately on prices...
No mention on the price, but if it's anything like what it has been for other limited offerings lately, I would expect to pay a few more bucks.
I picked up the last bottle I saw at Spec's Brodie @ $11.99, unless there's some hidden somewhere.
Got another coming in a trade, so it's nice to have one I can drink fresh.
I really need to get one of these for a partner but it looks like I am going to have to spring for an $18 price tag in College Station. Ouch!
I just picked up a bottle at Spec's Legacy for $11.99. They just put out a whole case without a bottle limit. Good Luck.
Drinking this right now... great bourbon nose and lots of vanilla in the taste... it's very thin though. I think if they were able to make this a bit thicker with a fuller mouth feel it would be a 5* beer. It's not very hot, just a small hit in the back of the throat... I wouldn't age this one myself... I don't think given the ABV and how mellowed it is now it will benefit much.
It's also not black. It should be called Really Dark Brown Crack.
haha callin it now, $17.99 at hamricks
Getting crazy over there now. Yeesh
I wouldn't pay 18 for this... 12 is pushing it.
It's not great...I wouldn't buy anymore at the price point I paid for it. Good...? Sure, but not 12 bucks a pint good...
If anybody struck out on this, I'm willing to trade one out IP for another BBA Stout - BM me if interested.
Anybody know what this is?
Also, what is up with Southern Star's wildly inconsistent labels? This one doesn't even have their logo on it.
What's with 500mL bottles is more what I'm asking. They've become weird over the last year with their beers.
I think they were working the can labeling machine on their special releases and finally snapped.
Hell, when's it come out and will they BBA this one?
Based in my knowledge of Russian... OCTOBER seems right.
In Soviet Russia... beer ages YOU!
Anybody have an extra bottle of Black Crack they are willing to trade? Send me a beer mail and we can work something out.
Wasn't ignoring you, just for back home from work. I'll let you know after Thursday if I acquire more, I'm not looking to trade any of my current bottles.
Looks like some Black Crack is showing up in DFW - Mr Gs in Plano had some an hour ago.
Picked up Black Crack at Spec's Walnut, but there isn't anymore now.
I'm in Houston today through Sunday. Anyone know where Black Crack is or want to trade?
Sadly Black Crack is now available in the DFW area right now.
Yeah I saw that. Wasn't expecting it till next week but oh well. Bad timing.
It's in Austin too. Wheeeeeee!
That's OK, You have a BM sir - I'm a pretty easy guy to work with.
With all these Austin and DFW sightings I have my doubts there was only 200 cases.
They had it at HEB Towerpoint yesterday for $12.99
Spec's Dallas had 3 bottles of dat Black Crack still on the shelf when I left just before closing time tonight
Glad you got some
Holy diacytal bomb. Drinking the black crack now and it tastes like butter!
Quite a few bottles at Hancock, last I checked.
Noooo! I haven't had one yet. Guess I know what ill be having with my eggs and bisquits in the morning.
Huh? Mine was fine.
Mine was a butter bomb. After a while, when my palate got used to it... It was good. Lol.
Just picked up a bottle at specs walnut hill. Last one on the shelf so thanks to the guy who picked it up turned his nose up and grabbed a bud light. I didn't check to see if they had any more but there may be some stashed in back still.
I have three of these bad boys.
...maybe too many, considering that I bought them one at a time and still haven't tried one. Maybe this weekend!
I just tried one from each of my 3 cases and i see no problem. Scared me! I seriously thought I was in for another ranger creek deal.
No, I don't have 3 cases, I just like when people whine which is why I do it so much Seriously no problem with them though. I've had 2 and while a little thin, no diacetyl.
I'm willing to trade a bottle of Black Crack out, BM me.
What's the status on Valkyrie? Has anyone heard when we should expect it. Definitely one of the best IPA's in TX.
