    Really hoping for Black Biscuit, Cashew Mountain Brown, Syrup Del Noche or BA Imperial Stout!

    I have it on good authority that it will be Hand of Doom.

    Can someone verify for me that Hand of Doom is Double Trouble aged in Bourbon barrels and Looking Glass is Double Trouble aged in Brandy barrels?

    Awesome. Whatever it is, I'm sure it will be good. The only disappointing one so far has been Blushing Monk--less because it was a bad beer and more because it tasted like a $15 bottle of raspberry soda. They've all been good to great since then.

    While I would like to see a BA FIS (or most anything mentioned so far), I'd like to see a barrel-aged version of their Porter. Foothills does a bourbon barrel-aged version of their People's Porter, and it is FANTASTIC! Founder's produces such a great Porter, and it is a nice change-up to get that barrel-aged flavor at a lower ABV.

    Folks seem pretty sure about a Hand of Doom or Looking Glass, however; I could live with those, as well. :D

    Yup. I wasn't the biggest fan of FMB, but it at least didn't leave me feeling ripped off and had a little depth of flavor.

    Really? I felt it was the best fruit beer I have ever had...

    And
    http://beeradvocate.com/beer/profile/1199/25852
    Rated an exceptional 94 with 818 reviews... How that qualifies as "bad" I don't know, but to each their own.

    I'd trade a bolt cutter for that blushing monk if you want.

    It wasn't a bad beer. Just overpriced and overly simplistic. I love raspberries, but would rather have just bought $15 worth of raspberries and eaten them instead. For fruit beers to appeal to me, they either need to be sour (e.g. Consecration, Fou'Foune, etc.) or the fruit needs to be a secondary flavor (e.g. Lindley Park, Tres Blueberry Stout, etc.). Beers like Blushing Monk, Cerise, Wisconsin Red, and Raspberry Tart are just way too fruity and sweet for me.

    Since it sounds like its going to be Hand of Doom, thoughts on aging a BA IIPA?

    I'm throwing in a vote for Black Rye... maybe not rare enough for backstage, but since they don't make it anymore it is kind of rare.

    If it's the same process as Looking Glass, they dry hop the beer after it comes out of the barrels,so its got all the complexities the barrel gives it and is still freshly-hopped. That's the only way to go with BA DIPAs if you ask me- what's any IPA without the hops?
