    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.

    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.

    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.

    CC 12 won't get Brandy Vanilla 1:1. Bourbon vanilla maybe.

    Simple math there is more CC than Brandy Vanilla. Unless someone is really aching for a 12 to complete a vertical I just don't see it.

    Hopefully you will prove me wrong!

    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.

    Yes Kriek is different entirely. I was referring to people who were simply looking for A Cable Car...not necessarily any given vintage. Clearly an 07 is > than a 12. I do believe strongly that MOST Cable Car vintages won't trade 1:1 for Brandy Vanilla, while certain older ones and Kriek are above Brandy Vanilla level. Never meant to lump Kriek in with CC.

    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.

    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

    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.

    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.

    Tastes like band aids imo. I only had it on tap though at the release.
