    Wow...this might give me motivation to still be functional for Sunday after FOBAB on Saturday. Awesome stuff.

    Nice way for them to get themselves filled to capacity right out of the gate. I think I'll be stopping by considerably later - lots of other interesting stuff they've listed and sounds like there's more they didn't list. Love BA DL, but I'd like to try some of the other stuff I haven't had before even more.

    I can't imagine BA DL is going to be better than what I had at FOBAB (i.e. BA Batch 9000 or Clair's Raspberry) so at this point heading to bed and not setting the alarm.

    Maybe I'll get some Cognac-aged DDBA. If so, no complaints.

    Never had Dark Lord of any kind. Might try to check this before or after the Packers game...

    You're probably going to want to do it before the game. If it's anything like some of the other limited release things where Map Room actually announces a tapping time, and presuming this is just a sixtel (which seems pretty likely, no?) it won't even last an hour before it's kicked.

    I know FOBAB was yesterday and a lot of people are going to be pretty hungover...but I still predict 15 minutes of tap time. If it lasts an hour, awesome, but I would not expect to show up at noon and it still be available.

    Eh, Map Room special tappings are always weird. Some times you'll have a tapping like KBS where it'll last for one hour and another like Darkness where it'll last an entire evening.

    I wanted to hit maproom but not feeling to hot this morning after FOBAB last night...Im sure that BA DL is probably a 1/6th or 1/4 barrel which will be tapped out in no time.

    Yah, I couldn't stick around for it so the more for ya'll. Stopped at uncle Mikes in Kenosha tho... Nothing special on tap right now.

    I've been there on a night they tapped Darkness, with a specified time posted in advance, and it was gone in 40 minutes. I think a lot depends on whether they post about it in advance with a specified tapping time, and whether it gets reposted on other sites. This one has a specified tap time and was posted all over. It won't last long.

    There are close to 100 people here and everyone so far has gotten a good 7-8oz pour of Vanilla Bean. $7. This is an awesome event and it's not even noon. What a weekend.
