    It is worth about $23 worth of similarly released beer. That has not changed.

    And by "not changed" we mean people will argue for weeks about what counts as "similarly released".

    More or less. This is why it is just easier to deal with friends and previous trading partners.

    Let us remember, the easier it is to quantify the less valuable it is. We cannot seem to quantify this, it must be worth an awful lot. ;)

    while not wide distribution in bottle format, kegs of Black Note (and their subsequent growler fills) are not exactly Michigan/midwest only...

    No you are correct. That was never in question.

    Regarding aging Black Note in 750ml compared to 12 oz, I don't see this beer improving after aging regardless of bottle size. It's not too hot fresh and the body is fairly thin, so I don't see what can possibly improve. Just my .02

    Make that $.04. Black Note has a body that is similar to Eclipse...which is kinda funny, because they both also share being massively overrated! Ahhh, commonalities. ;)

    BUT, at least Black Note lives within a realm a reasonable affordability.

    I wonder how BA would've reacted if 3floyds did this instead of bells. The possibilities are endless. Brandy vanilla in 12oz bottles. 2 weeks after DLD.

    I had blacknote on tap a few months back. I thought it was surprisingly underwhelming. I don't think your missing out on anything crazy if you can't land it.

    For $52 per four pack.

    Is a 3L Russian River worth trading for?

    How many times has Black Note been bottled in the 750's?

    The brewery would be set on fire and burned to the ground.

    No. I'd much rather prefer the 12oz bottles.
