$30 a bottle, limit of 1 per person.
Yeah I'm basically a FFF release posting bot. Now go rush to get some of this mediocre beer
Mediocre at best.
The lesson here is that if it doesn't sell the first time (XV Party), or the second time (DLD), try to sell it a third time at the same price but use the term 'limited supply'!
60% of the time, it works every time.
But but but....today is WEDNESDAY!!
I'm surprised they aren't selling BS for $40 or $50 and saying it's "Cellared Baller Stout"!
... the last couple times I've had Baller, I actually really enjoyed it... kinda made me wish I hadn't extra'd/LIF'ed so many of mine away...
Just checked the tap list from yesterday and there is a beer called "Stack N Stabb" as a $10 Bomber. Apparently a belgian strong. Did either of you guys that were there yesterday try it?
Baller Stout is actually quite nice in my humble opinion.
So you're saying that Baller Stout has real bits of Panther in it?
I opened a bomber of it the other night. It was a solid Beglian Saison-style ale. Pretty balanced and tasty.
I wanted Baller to be great. It was very good, but not $30 great.
Stack and Stabb for $10 is a solid buy. Will probably get released to stores in Chicago soon though as it has an official label etc.
Liked Baller better than any DL i've tasted....I guess for once since there's low demand I don't have to debate trading what I think is great for something I want....
That's because it's only 1/3 DL
1/4 actually = "A blend of Dark Lord, Surly Darkness, De Struise Black Albert, and Mikkeller Beer Geek Brunch."
By the reviews here it sounds like a waste of DL
I was extremely unimpressed with the two bottles I got at the Anniv. Party.
Brewery only according to the Brewpub facebook comments
Yeah, forgot about Mikkeller.
I did the same after seeing the price tags on his beers.
when it was fresh i totally agree. had it a couple of weeks ago and thought it was very much improved.
way better than DL.
I have six bottles for sale from my basement and hell ill only charge 25 (joke). I think the best thing about baller stout was that I was able to trade one for a Black Tuesday. I keep hoping it will age into something but I have a feeling this beer isn't going to be like the chubby girl I teased in fifth grade that turned into a fox at 20.
friend brought a bottle over once. wasn't a bad beer but no way i'd pay 30 bucks for it.
I hope they name it Baller-er Stout.
Hell, I was happy I stumbled on case of Gumballhead today, it has all but disappeared here in Indy.
Or Bal-Baller stout! or you could go both ways, Bal-Baller-er Stout....
For those of you who have it and want to trade, send me a message!
Firestone Walker has provided an excellent example over the past several years of how beer should be blended. Of course Three Floyds is not going to care or even consider blending to taste. It was like kids at a soda fountain.
Can't wait of XVI! From FW that is.
^^^ this is nuts^^^^
Too bad the place burned down. ISO Smoked Cellared Baller Stout
It's a good beer, its just not $30 good.
Darkness>Albert>Baller>Dark Lord>Beer Geek.
I really liked beer geek weasel the first time i had it, but subsequent bottles have had odd/off flavors and been more acidic than the first one i tried. i give up with mikkeller outside the Beer Geek Rodeo/Whiskey Weasel. I'm done with their overpriced lotto tickets
I still dont get all the hate.. If you dont like it dont drink it. They make awesome beer IMO and im apparently am not the only one that thinks this since the pub is always packed, DLD sold out, ZD is always selling out, people drive hours just to buy a case.. GABF awards, 4 beers on the top 100 list, and they where the first brewery invited to the Firestone Walker Invitational where they also received the peoples choice award.
I'll grab a bottle this weekend, and judging from the love, it should still be there.
People shit on FFF a lot, for various reasons. This specific beer they had a special release party for and at the time of release, I think most agreed it was mediocre at best. I do like that I am hearing good things about how it is aging though, so I might just have to pick myself up another bottle.
Thats my point, I dont know how it was drinking last november but I got 4 bottles at DLD and it was drinking really well. I was very pleasantly surprised I was even able to get it, figured it was all gone. Now again they release it, wish I could have gotten another bottle since im down to one. If they didnt sell out the first time why not sell it? Better than dumping it, and they arent charging any more than they were, and its been cellared properly for a year. They could easily ask $50 a bottle and they would still sell enough to make up for those that dont want to pay for it. Its just good business. I look at it as what was supposed to be a 1 time release collab between 4 amazing breweries, I thought I would never get to try, I now do, and im not being price gouged! It was a win-win.
pretty sure you are getting price gouged, i believe it was cheaper at the anniversary party.
Dont know, wasnt there ive heard people say the price was $35 at the release party, either way I was more than happy to pay $30 at DLD, and that was 6 months ago, 6 months later they are still charging $30 pretty sure that is NOT price gouging
