    Joking about the trade value plummeting. not joking if someone has a spare theyd like to part with.

    Still a ton in Rochester, I'd be happy to pick up any for anyone that wants some and bring it with me next time I head to the cities.
     
  3. We are tapping Darkness again at Red Cow Tuesday February 18th along with some other awesome ones!

    Any bottles still out there?
     
  5. I saw about 4 cases at Apollo in Rochester last weekend. Not a surprise at $25.

    Rochester, where Darkness goes to become shelf turds.

    Saw some recently out in the western burbs last week. They wanted $29.99, so it's no wonder it's still available. Tried to educate the beer guy, didn't get very far.

    That sounds like MGM pricing. Too bad stores can charge that because they eventually sell it.
     
  9. Still some here too, $25 per bottle.

    Don't knock the MGM name just because a few rat-ass stores suck. There's a few around town that are well-run by good guys who charge the same & know just as much as anybody else.

    Picked up a bottle at a local MGM for $19.99. Not all MGMs are evil.

    The Hopkins one sold it for $30, but sells other beer for less than most places. Looks like it could be a mixed bag.

    Anyone seen any in the TC metro lately that are reasonably priced?

    Would be mildly interested at 20 dollars in the metro area at 25 i would expect a happy ending right?

    For those in SE MN or La Crosse area; La Crescent Wine & Spirits still has bottles available for $25.
    Suprised any are left after the 35% off sale 2 weeks ago; they were only $16.25!

    A Chicago BA told me it's still on the shelves there in the $22 range. It's a great RIS, but it's not 2011 anymore. A $20+ stout should be barrel aged or have additives- chiles, vanilla, coffee. I hope Surly barrel ages or at least goes the route of Hunaphu of Abraxas at some point with a stout.
