    This is going to surpass CBS in level of demand and insanity to get it.

    Well, the good thing is that a 4pk of Black Note can be broken up into single bottles.

    Ever try breaking up a bottle of CBS? Total fucking mess.

    Yah, don't get your hopes up. I'd be surprised if this saw it's way out of Michigan...It's supposed to be extremely limited.

    sad thing is most of the beer stores here will probably break up the four packs to a one or two bottle limit per person.

    There's a part of me that would rather have none. With only one bottle, I am constantly haunted with the question: "Drink now? Or cellar?" ;) Fortunately, I was able to get Black Note on tap this year...

    This doubles/quadruples the availability, though ;)

    Cool, now everyone can chase Black Note. Can anyone tell me what we should all chase next week? This shit is so exciting. Fortunes are made and lost in a blink of a minute. Drinking beer is very stressful. I always feel like there is something else that I should be drinking when I am drinking whatever I am drinking.

    Was just there and they are going fast. They are limiting customers but there were 2 people they walked out with a case a piece.

    4packs seem to be the rage so this is great. However, I'll never see any on shelves....but maybe one day I'll get to try this.
