    Awesome thanks! I've had the good fortune of being able to try all Darkness vintages except for 2006, so would hate to miss out this year!

    Any places serving Darkness on tap Sunday through Tuesday? I'm headed to Minneapolis area for several days and would love to try it. Thanks!

    Much appreciated EJJ1848! Was unaware of the site, which will definitely help for this and other beer searches.

    Wouldn't be a bad idea to call the places before you go... Sometimes people late check in. Or sometimes just check into the wrong place

    Great point, calling ahead definitely saves time and disappointment. Thanks again!

    Darkness is still on tap at Mimosa in Minneapolis Airport. I just had a 16oz pour for $12. It doesn't taste barrel aged.

    Black Sheep in St. Paul, didn't look like there was much traffic on the keg. Except for us.

    Whistle Binkies South, $5 a 12oz pour. 3rd time having 2014 on draft, and this particular keg tasted the closest to DDay BA Darkness. Nice barrel and whiskey notes.

    Good God WB has it going on - Good beer Great Price... I remember hearing of the $2.50 Rum King! Scotch prices are also dirt cheap...

    Are they all barrel aged this year. I got three bottles from the same place and the first I had was great with the barrel aged notes...

    Curt1 Initiate (0) Nov 15, 2010 Minnesota

    Yes, all 2014 Darkness bottles are BA. Kegs are either BA or regular

    We left pretty late - but Darkness and BB were the last two still on...(8 was first, then KBS, then Rum King) I'd say def. worth a call...
