    Any Off Color sightings yet? Two weeks ago, when I was in town, my two go to stores hadn't even heard of them.

    The ability to order any Off Color from Clear River came and went quickly so only a handful of stores got the chance. They are expecting more six packs at some point in May but it was a pretty small supply for their first shipment to Minnesota.

    We're (F44) sold out of Troublesome and Scurry right now. Next shipment arrives sometime in May. Apex Predator should also arrive at that time.

    If anyone spots the Imperial Biscotti Break Bourbon Barrel Aged on the local shelves, I hope they will be great Advocates by sending me a PM with the details and not bringing it up on the forums. Or just buying it all and arranging for an IP trade with me.

    Thanks in advance!

    I asked around about this (including the rep) and it sounds like we probably won't get any this year. Definitely want to try this as well!

    Also, assuming your definition of "great advocate" was tongue-in-cheek...

    Had been wanting to try this for over a year. Shared one with the wife along with a 12oz of Worthy Adversary after it. Not much difference so save your money and just buy the Fulton!

    Saw it yesterday at South Lyndale Liquors for $5 a 12oz. Opened it and honestly was not overly impressed.
