    Has anyone seen cans of this around in SEPA? If so, where and what was the price point?

    Hits distribution next week. It'll most likely be the same price point as every other Sixpoint 4pk

    Hasn't even hit Whole Foods in Manhattan as of today, and they are usually at the front of the line.

    Saw it at Beer Table Pantry this evening in Grand Central Terminal but couldnt bring myself to pay $6 a can knowing that it would be at least half that if I just waited to find it in 4 packs

    I'm drinking one right now, got it at the supermarket (I'm in Flatbush). I don't like the idea of chocolate or coffee in beer, I only bought it because it was cold and I'm sick of Bengali, also I like to get drunk an 3 Beans is 10% in a 12 oz can. I kind of like it, and like I said, I usually don't go for this stuff, so if you do, you'll prolly like it. My fav so far is Resin, but it's hard to find

    Picked up a single can to try at the Blue Dog in Lansdale. $3.50 or something like that.

    There are a bazillion sinsillion better beers with coffee and chocolate infusion. I found this one to be underwhelming at best.

    i dug it but didn't find it to be mind blowing. there has been a lot of chatter about it, so i was pretty excited. it is good, especially if you dig coffee beers with that gourmet coffee flavor. i wasn't disappointed because it was good and i understand the chatter since it is very different for sixpoint. definitely worth a taste if you dig coffee/chocolate beers

    Drafts just hit Philly. Was on at Perch and Time as of last night. In my opinion, this could be Sixpoint's best beer. Big coffee flavor; no sign of the 10%. I really enjoyed it.

    Was $14 for a 4 pack at Whole foods, so a little higher than Resin (usually $10).

    Picked up a few cans of this, and my reaction after the first one was that it's decent but not great. It's got a potent raw coffee bean flavor to it, and I didn't pick up much in the way of chocolate. The 10% is well hidden though.

    I was going to buy this at Whole Foods PM. The price wasn't marked but I assumed it was around the same as Resin which I believe is only $7.99. They rang it up at $14.99. I was astonished. Why on earth would anyone pay such an exorbitant price? Nevermind that inaccurate and/or nonexistent price tags are my biggest beef with Whole Foods.

    It's a coffee imperial stout aged on oak. Seems about right to me. WF Devon was $1 cheaper.

    I paid $13.99/4-pack at WF Devon. $3.50 a can really isn't bad....

    For a 10% ABV, coffee/chocolate beer aged on oak, the price isn't too crazy, IMO.
