    This surprises me. This should have been picked up by now. Even if just for trade bait.

    I was shocked too. A friend of mine has been intrigued by barrel aged beers and was seeking out one to try. He went to Gabriels yesterday and called me while he was in the store and he started naming off some of the beers he saw and that was one of them. He even sent me a picture to make sure. He picked up a nice one for his first BA offering.

    Luchador is exciting because Porcine was spot on IMO. The barrel character + the meaty smoked malt really stood out over normal Blaecorn. Very much appreciated how well the barrel accentuated, rather than masked, the beer's profile.

    Haha, my cellar could use an extra one. I know that's for sure...

    Very Angry Beast should be a nice beer also. 50/50 Blend of BBA Vampire Slayer and BBA Blaecorn Unidragon.

    D&Q bro. I tweeted him to ask to hold me a Hellfighter. Shoulda added Luchador to that.

    D&Q has it. Can't make up my mind if I want to drive into Houston to try and get this. It would be my luck he would sell out just as I'm getting there.

    I heard you had to give up any BA Clown Shoes beers to keep FW out of Houston.

    Dallas had to do the same as well starting today... ;)

    Is this going to hit anywhere else in the Houston area? Only time that I can make it to D and Q is Saturdays. With the amount that they got, I am hoping there will be plenty more to come.

    Yeah, 3 cases and some change left as of 7pm when I got my bottle.
