    A Google search is the easiest way. Just make sure you use keywords like price, cost, bottle count, release...

    Yeah...I've seen 6+ bottles on the shelves on at least 3 places in chicago recently. The problem is they are so $$$ that nobody wants to pull the trigger.

    + It's horrible
    Cracks me up that in the trading forum there are a ton of FTs and zero ISOs for this sugar bomb.

    Does anyone think/know if keeping BC (or any other beer for that matter) in warmer than cellar conditions will speed up the "aging process?"

    If so, I think I may microwave mine when I get it. ;)

    I can assure you that smashing one on the ground in hopes your $25 dollars can be gotten back magically inside doesn't work. I can also assure you that putting one in the engine compartment of a 69 Camaro before doing a shitton of burn outs can't possibly HURT the flavor, so why not try?

    My thoughts exactly. I want to trade my only bottle since trying it, but I doubt it could fetch much of anything at this point.

    And i was so worried about getting to try this, thinking it would go all CBS.

    Why didn't the people at the release warn us about this? They are so mean.

    The intro to all his perfect 5s are the best part:

    "Had this 2012 on tap at Darkness Day was actually the first person to get it :)"

    "Alright the Hater-train stops now."

    and my favorite

    "Wow! I cannot believe some of the reviews on this."

    I didn't think Bolt Cutter was a bad beer, just way, way too hoppy right now. Yeah, it's also boozy, but sorta in a Backwoods Bastard sort of way. Lots of big flavors not well combined at this moment.

    It's a tough drink right now, but so are Dark Lord and Darkness when consumed fresh.

    Ive seen a lot of bolt cutter on the shelfs in a bunch of smaller stores all around NY. In NJ it pretty much came and went and we also only got 40 cases and everyone pretty much knew where they were going.

    Along with many others, I'm curious on how time and demand will affect this. It's never going to be brewed again, even if people hate it in its so called current "brash" form, it's still probably going to trade well/garner more interest in a few months/years(not to mention improve in taste/drinkability) once it's gone from the shelves.

    Have you had it yet? I really wanted to hate it, but ended up loving it. Both times.

    Laughed through five pages of this thread. I'm sitting on 3 bottles of this and have resigned myself to the notion that they will be an "oh, I also brought this" bottle to future bottle sharing events I attend.

    Tried it and it's just ok. What would you offer for one. It's still on the shelf in VT for around $18.
