    Barrel-Aged FIS. Not likely, but I would cream my pants if it were to happen.

    I hope whatever it is, people don't whine because its not what they wanted.

    Too late for that already I guess.

    I'm going to have to save up my tax refund this year. KBS, Black Party, and now this. April's going to bend me over.

    I'm guessing some sort of underwhelming BA sour ale...

    which would be perfect since I have zero interest in sours and will not be tempted to waste my time & $ tracking it down.

    Has to almost completely rule out a porter/stout, right? I don't think Founders would do KBS and another stout in a Backstage format at the same time.

    Their twitter feed mentioned late Jan. early Feb. as an announcement. Hopefully they'll have it at the beerfest this year.

    My guess would be something IPA related. Looking Glass as they tried it out last year around this time. Seems late in the season for a stout. Could always be a shandy....

    I heard from a very [un]reliable source that its going to be beijing breakfast stout. aged in soy* barrels with sushi grade bluefin tuna. sounds amazing if you ask me \=

    *note - this is not a post dissing previous/current breakfast stouts a la many upon many of dark lord put downs

    That shouldnt be hard to achieve. It was the worst of the backstage series.

    Fresh, it was tasty like New Glarus' Barleywine but overrated. 2 months later, last night, we drainpoured 23 of the ounces down the drain. It's an undrinkable, stale hops-laided, boozy malt mess :(

    Worse than Frangelic? That was a total let down for me.

    I didnt hate frangelic, vaguely enjoyed it, but then again, I only drank maybe 7 oz of it two times.

    The hate with BC goes too far.
    I enjoyed a bottle to my dome just a few weeks ago.
    Multiple people couldn't finish one?

    I heard they are bringing back Rubæus. I was dying to try it, then they retired it. Maybe that's what they are going to do for the Backstage series, but tweak it a little

    Sorry you didn't like it.
    But there were at least 2 people present and you said you drain poured 23oz.
    So, each person consumed at most 1oz. That's basically, at most, a single pull from the glass.
    Doesn't seem enough to formulate an opinion to me.
    There's a nice malt character there, and you don't seem to like that, but it's no J.W. Lees.
    To each his own.
    Cheers.

    No, no, no! Devil Dancer is yucky and Double Trouble is amazing. Something went horribly wrong there.

    My opinion, of course.

    There's likely some exaggeration to 23 oz. I had about 6 sips before i flushed it all away. It's not a matter of just being malty -- i mean, MOAS is malty -- its that it was STALE hops unpleasantly mixed in with bready malt.
