    They sold out about 30 minutes ago.

    Whole Foods in Nashua has some. They're breaking up 4pks and selling 1pp ($5.99). They are holding it behind the cheese counter. You have to ask for it.

    J Bartlett's is in Whole Foods so grab a pour or a flight after

    There will be a second wave of KBS at some stores in NH. Keep your eyes peeled on social media.

    Aside from the where is it, I am shocked to see how many people are taking absolute dumps on this years bottles. Specifically people calling it out as super thin and hardly and Bourbon flavor. Is this the case?

    Per usual, I've seen people saying it's drinking perfect out of the gate and a big improvement from past years and some saying it's the worst batch they've ever made.

    Don't trust individual people's palate memory. Humans aren't good at it, so even in aggregate the data is biased.

    As with all beers, lower your individual expectations, open it up in a relaxed and fun environment, and you'll do okay with it.

    I haven't had it before this year but I can't conceive of anyone considering it super thin. There's a little dryness at the finish which might-maybe-could lend to the perception of it being a little thinner than it actually is. But that's really reaching.

    The bourbon, however, is definitely not up in your face, especially in the nose, but, for me, that's a good thing. Again, I'd never had it before, so I can't compare it to prior years, but I suppose I can see that as a legitimate complaint.

    See my review from yesterday. Obviously, I liked it a lot.

    Personally, I thought this was the best year since 2013. Ive been pretty disappointed the last 3 years to the point where I almost didnt seek any out this year, but I am glad I did.

    But yah, palates are super subjective so only way to find out if its good is try it yourself.

    No way. Big ass bourbon effect. Not the most complex version, but I was impressed with the bourbon.

    There are two whole shelves of them, just sitting there on a display at the end of the beer aisle. No one's even looking at them.

    I feel like such a tool for being excited to get two bottles on release day. I'm not sure if I'm even supposed to like them anymore if I don't have to break my ass to get them.

    Hannaford got hooked up. Even a local market got 7 cases. I remember a couple years ago stores were lucky to get 2+ cases

    saw a 3 case stack of it yesterday at the Co-op in Keene, $23.99, did not see a limit. Also saw some last week at the Country Mile in Greenville, they are likely out by now.

    It's the same in Maine. Last year and this year the Hannafords have a lot of it just sitting there. Last year it was over a month before it was all gone.
