    Opened my bottle up just a little while ago. So good, sweet but not over powering and with a nice bourbon heat. And may I add that this is a perfect winter beer.

    You opened a bottle?!?! :eek:

    You're not actually supposed to ENJOY the beer.

    There's magic in them there barrels. Well, except for the sour ones...only wee and spew in those.
     
  7. ..Me and Alex just need to change the beer to "Ballet Stout" in our respective databases.. and add a Murda'd alt called "Barrel Aged Ballet"

    I will buy someone a bottle if they can buy me two and meet IP in Chicago. Will they sell you 3? BM to confirm if you can do it so I don't overextend myself.

    Is this acceptable BA ettiquette?

    Ok so I am a huge FFF fan but barrel aging a blend that was already barrel aged separately just seems a little lame and like they are trying to just sell something in a different bottle for more.

    Baller Stout wasn't barrel-aged. Sounds like they reserved some of the base beers last year, put them (individually) into barrels (according to my man up there ^), then pulled them out of said individual barrels this year and blended 'em then.

    It's limit one

    They didn't BA a blend of BA beers. They blended 4 BA beers into one (the 4 beers that went into Baller)

    krl2112 Advocate (585) Illinois Nov 10, 2012

    Yeah but the Mikkeller was already barrel aged. I dunno not a big deal but it just seems they are reaching at straws. Don't just barrel age EVERYTHING you brew and sell it as a new brew. That is my only issue. And I know it's not just FFF doing this.

    I stand corrected. However my original comment holds true. Don't just barrel age everything so u can sell a new beer at an even higher premium.
     
  15. stxSS07

    stxSS07 Initiate (0) Illinois Nov 23, 2010

    Barrel aging takes up space in the brewery (14? months in this case) that could be used for beers with higher profit-margins. Thus, BA = more $$$.

    You don't have to buy it if you don't want to, but coming on BA and complaining does nothing (not to mention it's old hat).

    Personally I think FFF's barrel aged stouts blow their non-barrel aged counterparts out of the water, more than justifying the price hike.







    ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Not really complaining more than voicing an opinion. That is what this site is for; to discuss and share opinions. All I am saying is that I believe breweries are using barrel aging a bit as a crutch.

    Same here. I'll definitely pick another one up if they're available tomorrow.

    I do have to say that not tweeting it really made for easier time trying to get it. In a couple of days word of mouth will get a round and there will be a mile long line for people getting this for Christmas

    Considering it's $50, me too. This week already had potential of being a very expensive beer week.

    I'd love to try it, but not going all in for $50 to try an experiment, particularly after giving up $60 for some pretty nasty beer in April.

    I did like Baller Stout. It's just., man, $50 is a lot of money for a brewery & beer I've had mixed results with. If I tried it on tap and loved it, I would still think twice about one $50 bomber.

    How much are the BA bottles at DLD, $100?
     
  28. stxSS07

    stxSS07 Initiate (0) Illinois Nov 23, 2010

    $50. Also BA Baller is a 750ml (I know, I know).

    You can enjoy it, but unopened on the shelve. This will prolong the enjoyment indefinitely instead of the brief enjoyment you will get from drinking it.

  30. To this point I Imagine this is a creative way to get the margins and income they need due to the cap on Indiana brewing laws. I'm are they would surpass their maximum brewing ability. My guess is this is heir way of making profit due to post sales based on archaic Indiana laws. If that is the case it is a smart business decision. Who do to think you're dealing with, a bunch of metal heads???

    $50 huh? Call me crazy but that's less expensive than I thought they were going to charge for it. I mean DL is $15 and $50 for BA DL...so $30 for Baller and $50 for Murda'd Out...That's a steal!! :rolleyes:

    Dark Lord, Surly Darkness, De Struise Black Albert, and Mikkeller Beer Geek Brunch

    If they didn't barrel age them they couldn't sell them ( aside from the darklord) they cant just sell surly darkness by itself..so throw them all in barres and blend them all and now its something else.

    I would have loved to try that barrel aged darkness, Id pay 50 for that

    From the sounds of it, BA Dark Lord, BA Darkness, BA Black Albert, and BA Brunch Weasel (least exciting of the four), are all relatively good BA beers. If it is blended to taste by someone who isn't inept, I'd think it'd be hard for this beer to be anything but great. BA Black Albert was fantastic, as is BA DL. BA Darkness I can only imagine is fantastic, and BA Weasel is also new to me, but hopefully this bottle will live up to it's hefty price tag (I'd like to mirror the sentiments of others who thought this would be more than $50 when it was finally released, pretty surprised FFF isn't charging $75).
