    I was wondering if anyone had a release date for this beer? I have seen that some people have been able to acquire it since October but in New York I have not seen y anywhere. Any help is appreciated thanks

    Was quite surprised Friday when local store posted on Facebook they had some. One bottle per for $7.99. Very pleased we were able to buy a couple bottles.

    Was able to grab three 4-packs for $22.99 each. Also had singles at different locations for $6.99, with one and two bottles per person limits. Amazing beer!

    Found it in Indianapolis in early November.

    Found it in Missouri in late November.

    I've never seen it around here until this year, but it went quick.

    Whole Foods Upper East Side got this on Wednesday.

    They put 4 out yesterday and guy in front of me grabbed 3. When I asked if they had any in back, I was told it's limit 2 per person. He walked me to stock room and gave me 1 more. It looked like he had 1 case, so I guess 19 left as of 7:30 pm last night. The bottles scanned as "locked for sale" at checkout so I don't think any were sold before us. $7.99 per bottle.

    Houston, TX seemed to kick it out on Black Friday w/ BCBS.

    $22.99 for a 4-pack kept me from buying it.

    Love Expedition, would love to try Black Note, but I’ve never even seen it. Sold out everywhere nearby seemingly instantly.

    It hit distribution last week in southern CA. Two bottle shops near me got cases with one bottle limits at $8 a bottle. I picked up two bottles because I hit the same shop twice as it sat on the shelves for at least two days. I heard the other shop went through their allotment within hours.

    Have never seen this beer, but have thought it was a must-try at some point ...... just bought a single for 6.50 at local Wegmans (obviously bigger distro and quantity for 2017, there's no way this has been available in this store previously). Keeping this for next year or so, not sure I have a longer-waited-for want than this.

    In the past very little made it to NC--some places would get a case max.

    A little more making it this way now and that's great. My absolute favorite. To me the most integrated of the BBA stouts. Just perfect. 2017 did not disappoint.

    If totalitarian IRS is anything like an "enjoy by stout"

    that would be pretty cool actually

    I second this. But it is also delicious aged. I found a 2016 the other day and drank it (before I got some 2017, or I would have done a side-by-side), still fantastic.

    For those in Ohio who have never even seen a bottle of Black Note, good news. Many Winking Lizard locations have added Black Note to their list while supplies last. To belly up you’ll need $8 a bottle. I did and am thrilled with the beer. Finally...[​IMG]

    I was surprised to see a single 4-pack on the shelf in MD and picked it up for $24.69. Haven't cracked one yet but looking forward to it!

    Found 2 4packs at a local liquor store that is definitely not known for the more rare craft beers. Bought one at 24.99. Went back a couple weeks later and the other 4 pack was still there so I bought it too. Better than BCBS imo.
