    I got a case and am looking to unload two of them for two Bourbon County Cherry Rye stouts. Hit me up if anyone is interested. I have traded a ton so if you need ref's let me know.

    I was sort of disheartened when I got the phone call. Shipping to Chicago was gonna be almost $300, and the guy I was gonna split it with got out last minute. I just couldn't find any justification for dropping that much for 12 bottles of the same beer. Perhaps and ISO will be in order some day.

    I will have my case Friday. Hit me up if you want. I actually only wanted a half case but was unable to find someone to split. For trade, not for sale. Not looking for anything in particular, I guess.

    Yeah i wanted to do this too. Let's Pour has the base beer for sale as of yesterday.

    I originally was gonna get the MoAS case and a mixed case with the Stormwatchers, Grand Cru (which is beyond awesome btw good enough beer alone to recommned Pelican to anybody who digs anything yeasty and dark)
    and more of ther Brun and Stout as i had had them all at the brewery over the summer and loved em all......but then i realized i wasn't a one percenter

    If anybody in NYC has any extra let me know!

  12. You only wanted a half case (see also: didn't want to spend the cash on full case) but now the other half is only available for trade which will cause you to incur even further expense via shipping. :p

    I just want to make sure I understand where you're coming from.

    I'm not the kind of person who needs 12 of the same thing. Not worried about the cost bro. Why do you care exactly?
  14. I don't care. It was a curiosity. Nothing more. :) Carry on.

    Got a case last year and have two on the way as I type this, Pelican called me last week to confirm the shipping address. Cracked one of the 2011's over the weekend with another BA friend and it was impressive. I'm thrilled they're able to ship it! :)

    Same here, BM me if you're looking for a bottle or two. Would prefer to send this to people who can pick it up directly from me in the LA County area.

    BeerTheater Savant (325) Florida Oct 18, 2012 Verified

    I too have bottles for trade and would prefer local south Florida folks but if you are interested regardless of location BM me. By the way, Pelican finally posted this sobering news: "Mother of All Storms 2012 is officially gone at the Pelican. There is a very limited quantity being distributed in the Portland, Vancouver & Seattle markets, so perhaps you can still pick up a bottle at a store near you."

    Me thinks if you did, or even came close, you would need a flock of pelicans to deliver you to the ER. = )

    By the way, are you gonna drink one fresh? Tonight? Of course you are...let us know what you think, ok?

    I had one last night and will tell you what I can. (Either my pallate sucks or I have a problem putting it in to words, so there won't be much)

    A - Dark, darker than a barleywine has business being, but I like that. A very interesting head, somewhere between sandy and tan. Head stays for about a 5 count before the alcohols kill it.

    S - Yup, this is a barleywine, and one hell of one too. It's a good thing I like liquor, cause you could probably get drunk off the smell. I am not sure what in my mind sets the barleywine apart from an old ale or malty DIPA, but this has it, best I can describe it is a barley spice in the nose, hope that helps lol. Lots of dark fruit smell too, fig is heavy here.

    T - Dear holy hell, this is just what I need. Thick without needing to choke it down. Sweet caramel candy flavor with a ton of fig, and then as soon as you follow, hot alcohol. That hot alcohol flavor stays in your chest the entire way through, I like it :D

    M - Like I said, thick, but at the same time reminiscent of a liquor. This is bourbon that's just disguised as a beer.

    O - It would be rough to try and drink the entire bottle. This is truly hot like a spirit, and you should take your time as such. I am glad for all the bottles I got and am seriously considering IF I am going to trade any, lol.

    I still love Sucaba, it is still #1 in my mind, but this is right behind. It's like Usain Bolt followed by Yohan Blake... Damn close.

    I just got a case in the Chicago area and would be happy to part with a couple to fellow Chicagoans. I'd mostly be interested in trading beer for beer. PM if you are interested.
