    I'm looking for a house in AZ now, I'll have to look you up when I get there so you can show me where those bars are!

    It would be a pleasure sir. But first a 2010 Parabola. Then we hit the bar.

    I got lucky and paid $15/bottle here in SE PA, but they're normally around $18.
    I can get a case, shelf aged already, for about $165-ish+tax.
    Have been trying to find someone(s) to split to no avail :(

    It's a good beer for sure, but at the $16 price for a 375 ml bottle I don't see myself buying any more in the future.

    $36? Worth every penny? I think I paid $17.

    I haven't popped mine yet since I don't have access to it, but this thread makes me wish I did.

    Been to the Mesa place, but being only 5 minutes away from LA, I don't have to drive too far now.

    I was so looking forward to this brew, and cracked a bottle for Darkness Days. Only bottle I have had more disappointing was Dark Lord...maybe it's better in a growler.

    I found it tasted very similar to BB4D. Been meaning to taste them side by side since the night I had them both ...purely for science of course.

    I'm iffy on the bottles as well just because of the Lost Abby/Port quality control parallels(beating a dead horse I know), which is why I wish me and SaigonDaze hung out at Lost Abby more, lol.

    When I did my first trade I got one as an extra (thanks bobby, you damn bastard!) I don't know why I haven't traded for more and more and more and more...
