    Total pass for me. I see it regularly in NYC (bottle shops, Whole Foods) and it's $10US a bottle. And there's no USSR style bread lines to get it.

    $24.99 a bottle!!! That has to be a misprint. It's easily attainable just over the border Black Friday for $10 to $12 every year.

    Not the BA one, just regular. The wax makes it worth it though :stuck_out_tongue:

    I am confused... I know you're having fun but are you saying the Darkness in MB is not BA, or the BCS or the $17-22 bottles in the US? We got 2016 (I think BA) a few weeks back and 2017 is upcoming.

    Ot is saying that the bottles are 500 ml. Correce if I am wrong the 355 ml bottles go for 10 to 12 $ US. Regardless seeing as I live over and hour away it is going to be a pass!

    The Darkness in MB is not BA. The BA version has a gold label and gold wax. The ones in Mb are red and black wax. I bought 2 :wink:

    They had 200 bottles total and it was $22.90 a bottle as noted above. The set up was the same as two years ago. You got a ticket with a number guaranteeing your purchase. They were giving out coffees, pastries and cheese to people in line. Lots of free food inside too.

    There was about 120 people in line by 9:30am. A good chunk of people at the front got in line again and got two bottles total. The LCBO had 3 cash registers going and the line moved very quickly.

    Yep, I'm in Tampa right now and could've bought a couple cases already at retail. It's crazy how much some parts of the country get compared to others. Even western new york still had minimal amounts spread across a dozen accounts. I really thought with how much they make that Ontario would've received a lot to make big impression on the beer scene here, but nope! Gotta make it seem like it's super exclusive and rare!
