    ~$15 for Sucaba, The Abyss & Black Butte XXIV.

    Also Paid $16 for a 16 oz. pour of Old Rasputin XV.

    Passed on a bottle of Old Rasputin XV for $22, tho. As well as Eclipse for $28.

    My cutoff has been $20 up to this point.

  5. Roguer

    Roguer Champion (880) Connecticut Mar 25, 2013

    $12 or $13 for Chimay and Westmalle. Some friends and I have been discussing going in on a bottle of Utopia together, to defray the cost. So, nothing too expensive.

  14. Parrotshake

    Parrotshake Savant (345) Australia Nov 29, 2008

    Tokyo or Tokyo*? The former was excellent, I would love to try it now.
  15. Nectar

    Nectar Savant (310) New Jersey Jan 17, 2013

    Tokyo*

    I hear its a huge sweet syrupy mess but only one way to find out I guess...
  16. Parrotshake

    Parrotshake Savant (345) Australia Nov 29, 2008

    I wasn't too fond of it for those reasons. Maybe it's settled down a bit with age. The first batch was on point.

    Since I'm pretty new to the trading forums, I've never the postings directly after DL Day.. would you say it's much more likely to score some of the BA DL variants (particularly Vanilla Bean) right after DL Day?
  18. Eighty

    Eighty Savant (365) Washington Feb 17, 2013

    $20 for The 1st Nail (The Pine Box anniversary beer brewed by Fremont). Was a cinnamon-bomb, kinda tasted like apple pie. Looking forward to seeing how my second bottle mellows over time.
  19. 25 for bombers.
  20. $160 for Utopias - worth it at least once - probably wouldn't buy again.

    djsmith1174 Savant (460) Minnesota Aug 21, 2005

    I honestly cannot remember, so it must not have been that much. I'm pretty certain that I have yet to exceed $20 for a bomber or 750. It may even be yet to exceed $15. But if the beer struck me right, I might spring for it.

  22. $85.00 for a 3 liter bottle of Stone 10th Anniversary. Also a bomber of Russian River Congregation for $23.00.

    Price gouged on KBS - $50 for a 4 pack. Gotta have it; whatcha gonna do?
  25. Jeffreysan

    Jeffreysan Savant (280) Maryland Apr 12, 2013

    $40 for a 750 ml of Brooklyn's Black Ops. $36 each for 22 oz bottles of DuClaw Retribution with Cocoa and Retribution with Vanilla. Not at the same trip to the beer store, though, that would just be madness!
  26. Gotta always remember that's what a BMC costs a sporting event.
    That's my personal justification.
  27. $180 for a 2011 Utopias. Still haven't opened it.
  28. douginromeo

    douginromeo Savant (315) Michigan Apr 1, 2013

    Wow! Only paid $25 in MI!
  29. I paid £9 (roughly $14) for a small bottle of Chimay Blue from the only store in Korea with a selection of Trappist ales.
  30. Budinetz

    Budinetz Savant (350) Pennsylvania Dec 29, 2010

    Even if he meant $7.50 he paid too much...
  31. Budinetz

    Budinetz Savant (350) Pennsylvania Dec 29, 2010

    Paid $230 for a case of Brooklyn Black Ops
  32. pdoran10

    pdoran10 Savant (290) Minnesota Jun 30, 2009

    $50 for Cognac Darklord.
  33. Jeez I am still stingy I guess, $19.50 per bomber of 2012 Dissident was probably the most for me. Though I'm in the $12 - 15 range all the time.
  34. DanK4

    DanK4 Aficionado (240) Maine Jan 17, 2012

    Not too bad- shelf price of the XV out here is 18.99, so by Maine standards you got a steal.
  35. socon67

    socon67 Advocate (625) New York Jun 18, 2010

    $30 for Hunaphu
  36. Some of these prices are unbelievable. $70-200 for a bottle of beer, wow! I hardy pay that for a bottle of scotch and a bottle usually last over a year.
  37. gmendez1122

    gmendez1122 Savant (335) Illinois Feb 7, 2013

    Bourbon county Rare & CBS together for.... geeeez its hard to say
  38. $30 for a Schaerbeekse Kriek. Gotta love discounted prices.
  39. $20 for a 4 pack of KBS, just yesterday.

    I would have purchased more if they had allowed it.
  40. Westy $130 for 6 12oz's
