    I always assumed it was, where the heck else did that hop character come from? A couple folks at the party I thought confirmed it but that was a year and a few brain cells ago.

    EDIT ---- A google search reveals I could be nutzo. I've seen no one else say that.

    EDIT EDIT ---- Looks like it may have been from the darkness. I only had one darkness a year ago and i think it was a couple years old so I wasn't privy to the hoppiness.

    I always assumed it came from the hoppy monster that was 2011 Darkness.

  8. That puts you at 8 years old for the year hip-hop died (1995). God that sucks, you don't know what you missed!

    8 barrels becoming 900-ish bottles (if true) would probably mean that they blended to taste, a significantly greater quantity of some of the beer than others. Like, if the Black Albert went to hell in the barrel, there might not be much in there. It could also mean that they kegged a bunch of it up to serve randomly, or at next DLD.

    Either way, if it's good, that'd be a relief. I guess we'll know sooner or later...

    but biggie died in 97
  11. Study and compare his first and second records. I think you'll find he died before '97.
  12. Part of me actually really would like to try this

    How much did your local illegally sell these for?
  17. I know a place or 2 that FFF sends a few bottles of all their special releases, totally legally. They usually put them out with just a $5 increase

    Totally legally without label approval and required info?

  19. Oh well.........yeah probably not

    All I meant was that they are not going to FFF to buy the beers themselves directly, then reselling them in their shops.

    they are reselling it illegaly, fff cant send those hand label bottles through a distributor, i know they send some special release to bars for tasting nights, but not to liquor stores. fff has a big problem with liquors stores buying from their kiosk a reselling illegally, that is why there is a 2 case limit. every time i sit at the bar i see guys come in with like 10 bums and buy as much beer as they can to stock their stores, it was prolly one of those guys.

    People being worried about a silent release of a $50 bottle in Munster, effing IN being sold out in less than 3 days is comical.

    BA Dark Lord sells out because it is at one of the largest beer release events in the country and people plan (and save money) for months.

    I got a bottle on Thursday night and there wasn't even a line of any sort. I actually enjoy 3 Floyds pricing to a certain extent. It is released on a Tuesday, I can meander down to Munster without dropping everything without worrying it is sold out and waiting in a line, and I don't have to worry about trading any since I can only afford one at this point!

    I much prefer it to Goose Island releases of late. I didn't even bother looking for Cherry Rye (or Coffee for that matter), because I have grown to hate "the chase." I didn't get any BB Pt5 at 4Elf, but I certainly got really drunk and had a great time. General releases of sought-after beer at bottle shops just are becoming too big of a hassle for me in Chicago.

    how is it a silent release? 3 floyds put it on their Facebook which reaches many, many people. also word spread even quicker on BA. also, many hundreds of people waited in long lines at the anniversary party for the non barrel aged version, so one would think that the BA version would be quite in demand. in fact, at 50 bux for a barrel aged stout, pricing is right on par for ba dark lord as has been the case for the last 2 years. so i don't find it that surprising at all that there is any "worry" about landing some, if they want to worry, let em, no loss to those who aren't worried.

    It is a silent release because it was released on Tuesday and wasn't publicized by them until at least a full day later. I suppose it could be called a semi-silent release. This is a moot point though, because The. Beer. Is. Still. Available.

    Every Bell's release is silent, but people on Beer Advocate announce it on their own. The only true silent releases (recently) of sought-after beer (sought-after by me) are things from the PNW like Peche 'n Brett and Oak Aged Bretta. The only reason I knew they were released is that people posted reviews. Most people in Portland didn't even know that Oak Aged Bretta was bottled when I put an ISO up.

    I ended up driving over for some ZD cases and hoped this was still available and it was. Gladly this was the one release I'd hoped had stayed around because I think it will be great. Yes it's $50, but it will be a holiday treat split between my brother and I on Christmas and sharing this will be worth more than $50 I can make back next week.

    "Another batch of Murda'd Out Stout, (bbl aged Baller Stout), is now for sale in the pub. Limit 1/person. $50. 750ml."

    Per FFF's facebook page.

    I have a feeling it's the same batch that they are releasing as I went there yesterday and they still had a good 5 cases just at the checkout area.

    lurchingbeast and I cracked one at the BrewPub and it was pretty good. A lot better then Baller Stout, for sure. I didn't rate it or anything, but if I had to assign a number to it, I'd say it's in the 3.8 range with room to improve.

    I'm sitting one down because I also think it will improve. I'd give it at least a 4.0 though for BA stouts.

    My girl got a little tipsy with a friend at the Three Floyds brewpub on Sunday night...and she ended up picking up a bottle of the Murda'd Out Stout...even though we had both agreed that it was just too much to spend...so I guess we'll be trying that soonish...she's flying out to Maine in a couple of days...here's hoping she throws it in her suitcase.
