How many for Brandy Vanilla DL?
you should go 1-1, if not a little bit more on their side
My guess is maybe 1+ a fou foune or something along those lines at the minimum. I feel like the Vanilla DLs are 1:1 with framboos. I had a trade worked out for 2x cable car for 1x framboos. That was until we realized we were moving to a similar area and we should just meet and split them at a bottle share in the future. Hope that helps.
remember cable car is something like a 150 bottles that can leave the grounds
one? for the bottle that i just offered two '09 blabaers and a chocolate rain batch 1 and got crickets? one, maybe more on his side? brandy vanilla, unfortunately, has really, really, really blown up. i'd gladly trade CC + rare or CC + blabaer or CC + blabaer + grey monday/CR 1... i think there are like 40 bottles left of this thing and they aren't moving.
The powers that be have decided no more brandy vanilla will be traded for less than one-off lambic (Oh sorry, wrong meeting...Ah shit. That's the meeting we're having tomorrow at the docks.)
I doubt there is much chance of that happening.
I could see Bourbon Vanilla DL going 1:1 for Cable Car but not the Brandy. I think it's more in the realm of what Franch said. For clarity, I've never had a Brandy Vanilla or a Cable Car, nor do I trade in whales too often so frankly my opinion means nothing.
Lol well thanks for the help
Have you tried offering 2 Cable Car for Brandy Vanilla Dark Lord and Bourbon Vanilla Dark Lord? I recall a dream where it got done twice.
I dont think all cable cars are all the same. Some vintages are better than others and there is a kriek. I dont see why a brandy vanilla wouldnt go 1:1 with CC kriek.
CC Kriek is a whole different animal. That should and most likely would pull brandy vanilla DL+ I'd imagine
What would I have to add (if anything) to a Bourbon Huna to get a CC?
I offered up $300+ in shelf waels for the Brandy Vanilla, got a few bites, but they all smelled blood in the water (somewhere else) and ultimately swam off. I'll just drink some lambic and be happy.
Brandy Vanilla just went to the next level:
I just got a Cable Car '12 for free (thanks MexicanSkittel and the Ravens). I offered up lots of options, but nothing near the current trade value of the Brandy Vanilla DL. That ISO is setting a new bar. Based on that post I would be guessing 4 CC or 24 KHU.
Man Im dying to get ahold of a cable car, but sadly, Im pretty certain I dont have enough whales to land this one... Maybe one day...
well, a cable car and stuff got a brandy vanilla....
btw cable car is fkn fantastic.
Congrats on taking down the white whale
i recently traded for the kriek and i gave up konjacks, blauw, and snr 10 for it. CC Kriek is more difficult to find then brandy vanilla imo
So where in Nor-Cal did you score a CC ?
This just didn't seem real. I want pics from said trader who received that stuff...
Besides, the last two years saw half of the BAVDL go to pieces of sh!t who got them at DLD for the sole purpose of selling on ebay. My guess is this year the 934 bottles will go mostly to BAs or those that would trade so the pool will be larger and the once ebay derived value will be gone.
Toronado SF. Only place where it's sold to go. Toronado SD doesn't have a license.
it's real, love.
I essentially traded a Rare and a KH for a 2010 Cable Car. The '12 shouldn't be TOO hard to get but then again the one I opened smelled and tasted like pure chlorine. So, I would think the person with the BA DL may have the upper hand.
Mislabeled bottle that was never supposed to make it into circulation of a test batch of Lost Abbey's new Toilet Duck Duck Gooze.
Public pool aged Cable Car
I have heard nothing but good things about this years cable car. Anyone else with this problem?
Tastes like band aids imo. I only had it on tap though at the release.
There was a post about this issue a few weeks back and no one else has had this problem.
So a mix of band aids and chlorine...... Hmmmm
Which I started since everyone in the group felt that way.
Hell, maybe I should contact Lost Abbey.
Yeah, that sucks that you guys may have gotten a bad bottle. If that Center for Metal Curmudgeons, as it's referred to by some, do another last-minute release again, I'll be sure to send you guys a replacement bottle.
LA/Port have an extreme quality control problem that they have not solved for years so bad bottles going out would not surprise me.
Cable car is similar to blabaer (but much better, fresh at least) in that they make a couple hundred bottles every year, and they're just not that hard to get. I wouldn't even consider trading this bottle for less than 3+ Cable cars. Maybe that's crazy but I've traded for both of them in the last few months, and cable car is much, much easier to get. I'm not even sure I'd want cable car as the primary bottle in a trade for a brandy vanilla.
To get a brandy vanilla, you need to either be trading down or absolutely crush the quantity like franch did.
These are just my opinions... Probably not the majority view.
