    I got 1 extra BB2 if anyone in Houston wants to go 1:1 for a BB1. Never got to try it.

    WF Lakewood in Dallas did not get any. Didn't check with the other stores.

    Tried BB2 last night and am glad I didn't stockpile bottles. Not sure if was intended to be soured or not, but didn't think it was true to the old ale style. No big, rich maltiness. Instead, dry, tart, cherry, apple, cidery lightness. Not my bag, baby.

    Yes, intended to be slightly tart. Your taste profile hit the nail on the head.

    I do agree and while I didn't particularly have an issue with the sourness, I was more expecting to see a blend of a rich old ale along with all those characteristics. Was looking for something heavier. Shame that it didn't quite work out.

    Anybody read Wednesday's Chronicle article on BB2?

    Looks like DR4 recipe has been aging in Old Forester bourbon barrels since January. Beer's a Scotch ale.

    A bit offtopic here but does anyone know if the dates on the St. Arnold's bottles are the bottled on day or best by date? Really hoping it's the former... lol

    I was able to have one at Lil Woodrows Heights yesterday. They still had two or three bottles left in the cooler.. also thanks to a couple of great people, I ended up with two bottles of BB2 at the house...

    so if anyone wants to trade one a BB2 for a BB1 in Houston, I'd be happy to help you out. I'd like to age a BB1 for a while.

    The taste is really good. It is very interesting and different. I didn't notice anything funky.. but you certainly get the chardonnay barrel in there. Lots of cherry smell, but not near as much in the taste. I think this might be interesting to age a few months also...

    FUNKPhD Advocate (515) Texas Apr 13, 2010

    I sipped a BB2 last night. I thought it was a little much. The cherries and the barrel notes started getting a rather medicinal character, very much like Tussin.
