    Parfait 4 is right up there with some of the best barrel aged stouts I’ve had this year. I was blown away. I like coconut, but not coconut vibes level of coconut. This beer blended it well with the hazelnut while still showcasing the other adjuncts.

    So I guess I'll be flying out for birthday/Zwanze. Anybody want to share some bottles?

    I’m shocked that they are still available, although if this published list is all they will actually be pouring, it’s a lot fewer SP stouts than normal for Zwanze right?

    They straight up said it was going to be focused on mainly sours this year

    that’s what the blog said the intention was this year - to focus more on Cantillon / lambic.

    i can definitely see them lasting longer IP and online due to everyone being obsessed with stouts. works well for the lambic enthusiasts, which we all know are out there!

    if you’re a local, you’re honestly better off just hitting the brewery tasting room and then hitting the cellar the following week for the leftovers.

    An afternoon imbibing on a sour and lambic dominated tap list will most definitely call for a thoughtful amount of tums :wink:

    Happy to be able to make it to another Zwanze. Glad for the focus on lambic / sours to make for a smaller event while still having the option to get BBT in the brewery plus all the other brewery birthdays shenanigans

    Excited to attend my first one of these. Curious to hear how a "smaller" festival will compare to past years.

    I’m guessing it’s roughly the same size as 2021 since that was also outside only but I wouldn’t mind it being slightly smaller

    For TWCP in 375s. I’m all for more stouts in 375s. Still wish next round of CSV would be in 12oz cans tho.

    I mean, I'd probably buy it. Not much different than spending $75 on 3 bombers

    no, i totally would too. it would probably be singles, or 4pks 12oz cans if anything. 16oz cans or even 375s would also be acceptable. just a way to spread it out over more sessions.

    edit: if the parfait series can be canned then why not CSV?

    I’ve said it before, but I’d be willing to pay a small premium to have beers in smaller formats than 750s. The ability to open them on completely separate days is much more valuable to me. The ability to have 2 experiences over 1 trumps 1 experience every time for me. If I want both, I can have that if in a smaller format, but the opposite isn’t true. It’s way easier for me to spend $80 on 4 beers that are each 375 than $80 on 2 beers that are each 750.

    Only if its barrel aged. While CSV is a pretty good coffee stout, I wouldn't pay $70 for a six pack of anything non barrel aged.

    A hypothetical 6 pack of 12oz cans at $70 would be a cheap $/oz ratio than the current 750ml bottle at $25. I get your principle, but if you were to buy 3 bottles of CSV (which I do every time), a 6 pack at $70 or even $75 is basically the same thing. Except now I’ll feel better the next day opposed to groggy after solo doming a bomber of CSV.

    Makes sense and I can see the appeal if you would normally buy multiple bottles much like yourself. Personally though, I think $25 for the 750ml they already charge is a bit high for something non-barrel aged.

    I would be for this as well if the pricing matched the smaller size. I could be wrong but haven't they all been right there with the cost of the 750's so far?

    jmlhd7 Initiate (116) Dec 22, 2014 Missouri

    The only ones released so far were double or triple barreled I believe, with one being $50 and one being $60. But you’re correct, the pricing model and predictions no longer make sense and it’s impossible to guess what they would be. I realize that I still waste money on this terrible hobby, but I would just enjoy smaller formats to drink on my own.

    Thankfully there is no cinnamon being used. Hopefully the addition of the maple syrup doesn't make it overly sweet

    also, i was thinking about this “BA Coconut Stout” day for the brewery anniversary (because i’d like to make it either Sunday or Monday) and if they’re tapping 3 BA coconut stouts, unless there is something new in the mix, then the choices are D8, D12 and BA CV right? i don’t recall any other BA coconut stouts from SP or Shared. @Heisenbrew ?

    also, i did come up with 3 candles that also had coconut in it but i believe that’s been gone for some years now.

    Bubble Wrap had so much in it that i’d hardly call it a “coconut stout” - same goes for D12 honestly. DM was a big oversight on my part.
