    $20 for a bottle of their stout? No thanks.

    It would have to be way better than their other stouts for me to spend half that. Just one man's opinion, but there facebook page says "a mere $20 per bottle". Come on.

    Seems a bit steep to me too but I guess it is in line with other brewery only releases.

    I would pay that much for a bottle of their rum barrel aged imperial stout though. That beer was fantastic.

    Is that a 750 mL? At least this will make it easier to send them out as extras so people can try their beer. Just sayin...

    So much of this that it isn't even funny...

    It's an exceptional Imperial stout in a town where exceptional Imperial Stouts and bottle releases are simply not to be found.
    A couple bucks more than it should be, but not all that far out of line for a 750.
    I'll be buying the limit and then some more later in the day when the pricetag prevents them from selling it all.
    It would have been pretty badass if they bottled up a couple hundred or so bottles of the rum barrel kill devil as well and maybe gone $20 for that and $15 for the Dweller. Either way, I've always felt the Greenman was the best brewery in this half-ass "beer mecca", so I'll go support them by paying a few bucks more than I should.

    How many other stouts have you had from them? I think there is just the regular line-up stout (which is also damn good) but I could be mistaken.

    Anyone up in Asheville able to snag a bottle or two of this for me? I live in Hickory, and unfortunately have to work.

    I'm here, and I would but there is a three bottle limit. It ain't really flying out the door at this point though. There are about 30-40 people here so even if they all walk away with the limit there will be hundreds of bottles left.
    I asked what would happen with bottles left unsold today and was told that most likely it would see some distribution.

    I recently had the Dweller here in Greensboro on tap at Sessions,I reviewed it under Kill Devil Dweller before knowing it was a total different beer,it has alot of the characterisitics of the Kill Devil Dweller from past reviews,it's not bad,it will knock ya on your ass after a few though I can say that.

    so what does everyone think about this? Two cases actually made it down the mountain and I was able to get my hands on one. Right now it's resting comfortably in my beer cabinet.

    It's a solid Imperial stout, just seems overpriced. Although if you went to the brewery release you got a pint glass with the bottle so that made it a little more reasonable.

    Yeah, the $19 price tag was high but I've been a longtime Greenman/ Jack of the Wood supporter so I jumped at the chance to try their first bottle release.

    It's funny how the farther east you go the cheaper beer gets. While not a huge difference in this example, it was $20 at the brewery and I've seen $22 other places

    I've been seeing $20-$21.50 for this bottle in the bottle shops across the Triangle.

    Very good stout, I would have to say its overpriced though. Especially with BBL Peoples Porter out there for $7.

    It's $18 or $19 at one Triangle store I know about, but as you say, I'll take 3 BBL People's Porter for another couple dollars.

    I really liked it. I'm happy to support a local brewery as well.
