    I can confirm from one of my distributors that this is coming in September. I have yet to see anything as far as an announcement but it was available for me to pre-order for my store. Anyone else heard or seen anything?

    I'm interested...but not as much if that means I won't have access to the base beer.

    This beer was incredible on draft many moons ago. Perhaps 2011?

    Good move on their part. This should be wildly popular.

    Hopefully all the KBS is gone by the time this hits. Another BA coffee beer??

    As a consumer I'm totally down with KBS and BA Sumatra on my grocery shelves at the same time.

    I haven't seen the base beer in any of my normal stores (that usually stock it) in over 6 months. Was hoping this would happen.

    So basically it’s kbs?
    If I remember right i drank some fresh Sumatra brown when it first came out in 2017? Right? I could have swore I was drinking breakfast stout
    Did both beers blind and could not tell a difference

    Hmm. I thought it was way better than Breakfast Stout and nothing like it.

    Huh that’s cool
    I mean it’s cool you had a different experience
    Does anyone know the exact style coffee founders uses for fbs?

    Not saying you're wrong but they are wildly different beers.

    Glad this is a Founder's Barrel Aged release that legitimately interests me. Still waiting for wide-distro BA Imperial Stout though... Or just bring back the regular, I'd be happy with that, so would many of my customers.

    I see that KBS has become a shelf turd, i'm not a big fan of coffee in my beers, I'd much wrather see a wide release of their BA Imperial Stout!

    Reg Sumatra is absolutely dynamite. I might need to sell an organ when this comes around.

    I don’t think you will need to. I had this in the taproom and it’s fantastic.

    I had this in the taproom about one year ago. And I know I had it another time probably one year before that. BA Sumatra is a sexy beast.

    I also had it at Founders in October 2017. Very good beer. I'm in for a couple four packs.

    Now this is something I can get behind. Hopefully it'll sell for less that $25 a 4 pack.

    I had the same reaction when I drank it the last year they made it. I could have sworn they used the breakfast stout batch instead. That was not the case the year before that.

    I wish they would barrel age the Frangelic Mountain Brown. The vanilla would balance well in the barrel.

    Hhm, carried at three places near me. As of last week it was sold out at one, one 4 pack at the second, five packs at the third; these will probably go bad since the guy is asking $26/pack $8/bottle.

    Sounds promising. Not BA Imperial Stout, but a nice consolation. Just no more BA IPAs, please...and while I have your ear, how 'bout resurrecting Redankulous!
