    My plan too. I'm also OK if a few are gone when I get there...I'm fine just walking out with that sweet nectar "Regular" BA Jones Dog.

    Had em all at the dojo. Coconut is absolutely positively unequivocally unadulterated FIRE.

    Apple brandy was the clear #2 for me.

    The rest were fighting for third place.

    ...already invested WAY too much into Rev cans and GI bottles and am almost happy this is way out of my way tomorrow...

    Did they give out larger samples at the dojo tonight or the regular small sample plastic cups?

    I’m looking forward to the bottles tomorrow or Saturday, but as a counterpoint, I had a full pour of BA Coconut and definitely didn’t think it was crazy awesome. It was solid. I noted that I would’ve liked more barrel and preferred BA Jones and Hyper.

    If you needed more barrel out of the pour of cocojones you had, then I have no clue what you were drinking. The bottle at the dojo was straight firey bourbon with balanced natural coconut.

    Tried a few. They were all pretty hot as usual. I think Sundae will be nice when it calms down a hair.

    Love these releases. PW crew awesome as always. Sundae is Jones dog with a strawberry purée blended in. Coconut was fantastic, said they added toasted coconuts until it started forming a fat layer.

    Regular samples. Pretty sure they are prohibited from giving larger samples of anything due to the type of license they have.

    As someone who has not had any of the Jones Dog varieties. Are these worth seeking out?

    No, not yet. I’ll bite the bullet and pick some up and then let you know if they’re any good. It’s looking like I won’t be able to pick them up this weekend, so definitely absolutely under no circumstances should you get seek any of these out until the following week.

    November 2018 shall go down in history as the most expensive month of beer purchasing. I understand I don't need everything, but I need everything.

    Now that I’ve got another minute to review the taster samples last night, I say with great sadness that hyper was my least favorite. The honey roasted coffee they used this go around was way too honey-sweet and overpowered the beer. It doesn’t even taste like coffee due to that funky honey flavor of that coffee. Sad Panda.

    Is there literal honey or was the coffee honey processed?

    The coffee is honey processed not honey roasted. Honey is a nickname for the mucilage between the bean and the skin of the cherry. Its nicknamed honey because it is sticky. If you leave that on the bean during processing then its a honey processed coffee. It adds some acidity to the coffee but not sweetness and definitely not a honey flavor.

    Maybe it is also nicknamed honey because it tastes like honey. Almost all I could taste was a honey-like sweetness.

    It's definitely possible the coffee could have a honey character, though I wouldn't assume that just from the honey processed coffee. Not doubting what you tasted, just a general statement.

    But yeah I will also chime in its very possible you got a honey like sweetness from the coffee. But that didn't come from the processing.

    This. Coconut is amazing.

    Sundae, Apple Brandy, and Cognac were all super nice too.

    The only recon I can give everyone is they said they made 30 cases of Apple Brandy, and it sounded like they made 10 barrels of coconut (what is that like 3000 bottles?)

    There was a nice mix of people walking out with just a few bottles, and guys there with their lady beer mules walking out with three whole cases.

    All barrel aged offerings should be available tomorrow still correct? I know historically they last at the dojo for a while but was just curious? Thanks

    "If we call the bean smegma something positive like "honey" people won't mind if we cut corners and don't rinse it off- kind of like when we saved money by not filtering beer and calling it 'hazy'. And we all know how that turned out."
