Hooray for the move to 12 oz bottles
Count me in for a couple of these, love everything I hear.
Man, this is a great BA Coffee Stout. 12 oz. bottles = the bee's knees. Consider me giddy...
I've loved this beer since the day I saw it. 12oz bottles is super exciting, not that Idaho will see any. To those that get some, cheers!
Not only 12 oz, but 4-packs! That's awesome!
Serious? they couldn't keep it just below 14%? that means no go for state of GA
Exciting to see this in 4 packs.
I have not had it yet. I am interested to see how much Bourbon flavor there is. Although I initially bought a Bomber of it, I sent it away, and have not purchased it since. Hopefully it will be easy to grab one, try it, then go back for a 4 pack if it is good.
They must have known you were a Bulldog fan.
Dang. I'd be interested in trying this again, especially in the smaller format. Let's see what can be worked out.
Nice! The price tag on previous Java Cask bombers was a little too high for me to justify, so I never bought it, but a 4-pack is much easier to justify.
Relatedly.... Does anyone know what retail price range we should expect for this?
Maybe, we'll see what the price is.
I've seen DFH Oak Vanilla WWS selling for $40+ a 4-pack. If it's that high, I'd rather the $14? that I paid previously for a 750ml bottle of Java Cask.
That would certainly be a gross price point.
I was sure hoping the 4 pack idea would force it into the $5/bottle price. $7/bottle is probably my top End on this.
Yeah I don't think it would be that high, but the WWS was just an example where the 4-pack ends up forcing the price too high.
Every time I saw Java Cask 750ml it was around $25, but I wasn't actively searching and probably happened to see it in the wrong places. A 4-pack in the $20-$30 range would be fine by me.
Victory is usually pretty reasonable with the one exception being java cask, it was about $20/750ml here last year. I'd guess $25-$30 per 4 pack at which I think will be a good value on par with kbs prices around here.
Very interested in the price, I think I got my 750s for $15.99 @ Wegmans last year
Maybe they jacked it up last year, because I don't think I paid anything near that for the bottle of 2015 batch I had. Because I wouldn't.
well people recently said that White Monkey bottles were being priced around $20, which seems crazy to me.
It's open beer season.
Several of their bombers have been expensive for what they are. Personally.
It was $15-16 for around here.
To clarify - I meant it was crazy that White Monkey was priced at $20. Not that people were complaining.
Although of all of Victory's beers, Golden Monkey probably ranks dead last for me - which I know I'm in minority since it's their best selling beer supposedly.
Smart move going to 4 packs. There is still plenty of Java cask 2016 bombers on the shelf for ~$20. Guess they want to find that sweet spot for pricing where it will sell.
Love Java Cask, wayyyyy under the radar which is good. The Rye variant was incredible as well last year! Probably my favorite BBA Coffee Stout.
Yes! Beautiful BBA stout, one of the few I've had that rivals BCBS. And I love that it will be in 12 oz bottles. No beer over 12% should come in a bomber, imo.
Wednesday, 11/8, Java Cask at 14.3% abv was on tap at the D'town brewpub. A 4-pk of 12-oz bottles were selling for $30. It's a might tasty brew. Another variant of Java Cask and a sour will be released on Dark Wednesday, 11/22.
