    I left around 11:45 and seemed like everything but VR was still on.Have been pretty disappointed in this years coffee for some reason, comes off as very very fruity.

    Just drank a bottle of 15 coffee last night and thought the same thing... Not that good. Gotta get back to the Bruery and get more Black House Black Tuesday, that stuff was epic

    Yup, they should bottle that. Hopefully they will in 2016. And I'll be looking for ways to flip this BCBCS into a Parabajava lol

    I enjoyed last years coffee morenthan this year. My friends and I felt the coffee presence was lacking this year in comparison to last year

    Just a warning if anybody was wanting to give up an arm and a leg for a Prop. This year's version is a syrupy, overly sweet mess. Just my opinion, of course, but I'd rather drink this year's regular BCBS over Prop all day long.

    I agree with this. Just had a Prop last night. Almost unbearable and I'm a Bourbon County fiend! Least favorite bottle variant ever released. Would be better served by pouring over pancakes or waffles.

    I could say the exact opposite, while the BHBT was good, it was nowhere near the coffee flavor and balance of bcbcs this year. I think it has to have something to do with the coffee origin.

    There's a reason we're seeing so many Props for trade this year. Don't fall for the inflated trade value hype.

    two things. (1) i heard they had to dump a great deal of the coffee - likely why it's not nearly as available as regular & BW. (2) i was given a bag of the beans they used. they definitely turn out on the weak(er) side for what i'm use to in fresh ground. jmho

    $10 a glass for coffee and regal each. I'm assuming the other versions were similarly priced.

    I'll add to the notes on the re-release. Whole Food DTLA got a refresh last night. Not sure if they have more in the back, but the cooler only had 3 of BCBW and BCBS after I left. Cheers!

    Dales Jr Market in Westchester has Regular, Coffee, Barleywine, Regal, and... RARE



    From his post, "absolutely no negotiating the price"

    Sounds like you better be ready to break the bank on this one!

    Did he say where? I've been looking around since Black Friday. The only place I know of that got it says they haven't decided how or when they're going to sell them..
