    I just got this at the 3 Floyds Brew Pub today. It is not numbered, I believe I was the first one to grab one today. It is a bourbon barrel aged version of Baller Stout.

    It's like you own an urban legend and/or joke.

    Is the bottle like the other BA beers or a lot nicer like the BA DLs? If it is nicer, let's see a pic.

    BA Dark Lord was $50, so if I'm being completely honest, I'm a little surprised it's not more expensive...

    Now was this put into barrels immediately, or was it poured from bottles that wouldn't sell into barrels?

    They are just looking to see how much money they can squeeze out of people.
    It doesnt stop here.

    I agree, and I think $50 is a fair price for a BA beer where the base beer is $30. I won't be spending $50 on it personally, because I didn't love Baller Stout and I don't think a year in barrels is going change that. Still, I think the price is reasonable all things considered (and I think $30 is reasonable for Baller Stout given all that went into making it, but in a vacuum the end product isn't worth >$1/oz)

    I was told it is a blend of the 4 base beers, Dark Lord, Surly Darkness, De Struise Black Albert, and Mikkeller Beer Geek Brunch, all bourbon barrell aged for 13 or 14 months and then blended and bottled.

    No, those were the 4 beers blended to make Baller Stout. The new release is a those four base beers bourbon barrel aged separately and then blended together after being aged for 13 to 14 months.

    Debate about price: check
    Goandpickitupformebro: check
    Comment about FFF beers not being worth it: check

    For this to be an official FFF thread, we are still waiting on:

    - 'Is there any left' (I will also accept 'how long do you think it will last' or 'how many bottles do they have')
    - A dontcounttoday comment
    - Number of cases remaining on shelves in Dekalb

    I thought I got the first one! I was at the table right to the "to go" counter when Steve told me about this "Epic" blend they were just bringing out. Either way, enjoy it!

    Are they forcing you to buy it? And if people buy it, how were they squeezed? They clearly value it at or above the $50 list price.

    Seems like they will have a bit left for a while since they didn't facebook or tweet anything about it. Defintley murda'd out my wallet though. I didn't hear the detials of what John the carry out guy was saying to the guy in front of me, since I was too busy looking at the hipster waitresses, but mine doesn't have a number on it… how am I going to get money for this thing online with no number to validate its rarity?!

    This obvious response took longer than I expected.
    But like winter it eventually came.

    ...its on par with BA Dark Lord prices.. Ballet's regular price is tough.. but the BA Version is the same as BA Dark Lord, no? No festival costs and you don't have to pay cash to boot..

    With that said, I hear and posted on aRB earlier a 900ish yield

    I've yet to sample a bad BA stout from FFF, so I bought this one as well. If it's anywhere close to Bourbon DL in taste I'll do three back-handsprings and moonwalk around the empty bottle.

    Damn you Three Floyds, just when you think the market for Ballet Stout is dead you go and stick it in a Barrel and make me want more.

    I have a feeling I'll be opening mine over the Christmas holiday, so I'll have someone video it.
