Say it ain't so! Now I'll have to drive back tomorrow and return this nasty beer while I still can.
Hopefully you understand that it doesn't trade for whales... only for dolphins....
Hopefully I haven't spent the last year coveting Black Note bottles just to trade them off.
Let us pray that you haven't. They're all horrible. Just ask BYOFB; I just traded him 2011 BN+ for some 2010 Nemesis.
Huh, never had Nemesis, not sure I ever will. I'm pretty content with the array of BA stouts and barleywines already available on a recurring basis.
Yeah....I wouldn't branch out to other amazing barrel aged beers that are much easier to get then Black Note either. And if Black Note is at the peak of the beers than you "covet"....then you will live a short and miserable rest of your Windy City days.
Well if you guys are that adamant about Nemesis being all that, I'll keep an eye out for it. Thanks for the tip!
And Black Note isn't my favorite beer by any means, BA Batch 9000 might be my current favorite. I'm not a Bell's fanboy, but they know how to do a BA stout. I had draft Black Note with a BBQ platter and that was an amazing pairing (far better than BCS) so that's something I might do with it, bring it to a summer BBQ. I've been really into craft beer for a year so no doubt there are tons of great beers I've yet to try.
Somebody took their grouchy pills this morning!
again not my pic, but I do have a bottle of it. And I haven't had a problem with a single Greenbush beer I have had and that has been about 15 of them, fantastic brewery.
I opened the growler of it with Raymo last night and it was amaze-balls.
Picked some bottles up this morning. Stopped at Arcadia on the way home to get BB Cereal Killer and BB Imperial Stout. Good beer day
Bottles were labeled in the 1300s of 1534.
Save one for me John!
Bummer. Went down to Arcadia last weekend to pick up the new BA beers. Was going to hop by eccentric but decided to stop by some random liquor store where I stumbled upon a cache of BCBCS of which I was allowed to purchase 3 bottles at $13.99 a clip. I enjoyed BA Black Note the last time I had it but still prefer KBS.
This thread is getting boring. Somebody start fighting about something petty and inconsequential.
your boring, petty, and inconsequential
Clever way to drop you got three bcbcs at a low price. I am so jealous of how good you are at beer.
That's for you macjenkins.
Black Note sucks and is wayyyy overrated. Your thoughts?
I scored 16 bottles of Black Note....just wondering if anyone has cracked one yet to see how it is tasting.
Looks like the Secret Black Note Society is unraveling at the seams.
The levitating Black Note bottles are tasting fantastic.
I heard a new Kzoo society has started.
Is anyone still trying to score 1 Million Black Notes?
That was magic!
Now do they have a webcam?
Agreed, love the BB Batch 9000 !!!!!
You're only saying that because you were too busy cleaning up other people's messes to go!
Haven't scored any of this batch yet, but I hope to. In the meantime, I've had a Backwoods and a BBPT5 so far tonight. Being a Michigan BA is rough work.
It is true. This beer is pretty average. I just traded my Blushing Monk for a Black Note and a Bourbon County Coffee.
Done that, let's move on...
No love for the Sparkling Ale 750 ml thats in the cooler!?!?
I love Sparkling, but that's another one that has been victim to the bomber/750 markup. Shit used to be $12 a 6er and now it's $13 a 750. So annoying.
When I bought sparkling ale a couple years ago, I was honestly pissed that I paid 12 bucks for a sixer. That stuff sucks.
Did anyone but their Black Note on their Black Card?
Just wanna say that I got my bottles today. The Bells employees, AS ALWAYS, were extremely nice and helpful. Kudos to you guys (even though you told me it was sold out on Wed)!
Honestly, it probably was out. They only keep a few (as you saw) in the cooler and restock as necessary, so they may have been legitimately "out".
Probably. Doesn't phase me, just glad I got my Note!
Hell yeah, man. Gotta love the Notes!
Except for the "Note" you left me on our bed after 4 Elf, some chicken scratch about that growing thing inside me, and it not being yours...dick.
Is this another Secret Society post, or does this stuff really suck? I'll be embarrased to take them back just after taking all my Black Note back because you said it was bad...
I don't think Sparkling Ale sucks, John clearly does. It's available every year, and they have been doing sixers one year, and keg only the next, so it's been readily available. When it's in the 6 pack, it's around 12 dollars. So $13 for less than half the beer is insane to those of us who have had their fill.
It is a weak interpretation of a Triple, IMO. It's not traditional, they use some champagne yeast to make it extra bubbly and quite dry...
Are there still bottles left?
Yesterday afternoon they were at 1300. Might be able to get the last 75 today, assuming they sold another hundred.
