    What does it take to land this lately? If you've traded for one or traded one away, what was the cost? This is the only BCBS variant bottle I haven't been able to get my hands on. Cheers.

    Fou'Foune has done it, plus some extras to even up the $4$ a bit...

    Yes. Needless to say the next trade I [feel I] reciprocated with generosity.

    Just nailed down a trade revolving around a 2006 Dark Lord.

    Also received one in a larger trade involving two BA Dark Lords.

    Can CBS still do it? That's what I traded to get BCBVS when the frenzy was happening.

    I traded a Hi-Fi Rye for one earlier this year. I also traded a 4-pack of 2011 BCBS for one a few months ago.

    I've had 4 buddies trade 1 for 1 Beat 005 for it as part of bigger trades. I don't know why a lot of these Goose Island beers demanded twice as much overnight, Vanilla was good, but nothing worth all that much IMO. Don't bother.

    Bother. Vanilla was excellent when released & it's even better now.

    It's been out for so long that a lot of bottles have been consumed, so it'll be harder to trade for every day. Pretty sure I paid $14 for mine, but that was a loooooong time ago.

    I tried it at the GI Black Friday for the first time and wasn't quite sure why people were in love with it, it was my least liked sample of the day. I would like to try it again, I just offered up two batch 5 beats for one and have heard nothing but crickets.

    If you didn't like it, why are you trying to trade for it? I am confuse.

    I've done that. Sometimes I don't like a beer then love it the 2nd time. My first Heady Topper I thought mediocre. Could have been stuffed up, ate something that messed with my taste, who knows.
     
  23. MarkIntihar

    MarkIntihar Mar 17, 2010 Michigan

    Fair enough, but trading for a couple cans of Heady Topper is much different than putting up two Beatifications for a BCBVS.

    I want more than a 3.5 ounce pour of it before I make a judgement on a beer of that caliber. I never said I disliked it, I just didn't like it as much as the others that I tasted that afternoon, apologies if I left that open for a misinterpretation. I liked but didn't love the small sample I had of it, I'd like to reevaluate it, I wanted to know what the established market value is - which is why I asked the question in this forum.

    Honestly, if you really want to try it again, connect with some local Detroit BAs, I'm sure there are a couple bottles still floating around, and offer to do a bottle share. That will be much more rewarding (and much less aggravating) than trying to figure out "market value" of a beer that has such a wide range of beers it has traded for.

    IMO, they served it way too cold on Friday. My buddy who was with me had never had Vanilla before and drank his early on in the tasting. He said he didn't get much vanilla from it. I saved mine until the end (best for last) and as it warmed, the flavor and aroma took-off! I had my buddy sip my glass and he agreed that it was outstanding.

    If I didn't just receive those beers yesterday I would have done that trade in a heartbeat. So yes, just need the right person.

    I think you'd definitely be able to do it for a Juicy and some "regular" HF to make up the $ difference. My tasting group landed a Vanilla, a '10 BCBCS and a few other bottles for some limited HF stuff (E. and Art, IIRC) and some HF regulars...

    Ya, this should snag a vanilla. I was looking for something similar to this but everyone offered different bottles. Still havent found the right lineup.

    I gave up a Genealogy + Twilight for one. I think you could get it done for Juicy + 1 of Twilight/Arthur. Definitely with all 3.
