    Anyone who's interested - I just found a source for Cigar City Hunahpu Imperial Stout - $40 a bottle. The guy's only got a few cases but I don't suspect they'll sell out too quickly.

    Oh fuck [​IMG]

    You know that it's only $20?! That's some pretty high price gouging, I just popped one of my bottles on Friday at a friends birthday party. It was so delicious and chocolatey, we took scoops of espresso gelato and made Hunahpu's floats...

    Rare Beer + Gelato = Ballin'

    No, not seen it before. Now I is less excited, thanks for headsup.

    PS. You still interested in Black Gold/Abacus or did you source some?

    It is quite tasty. How would you compare it to BCS or KBS, I've not yet drank my bottles of those so I'm in the dark

    Lunch time beer mission. Lot of this beer at Whole Foods bowery.

    Should i let this one age for a while? Or drink now? Same question for all imperial stouts. Better to let them age?

    It's drinking perfect right now, very vanilla and very tasty. Not as good as Bourbon County, but tasty none the less...

    11? I pad $13.99 for one there on Sunday. Was it mis-labeled or did they reduce the price?

    I dunno. But i will be interested to see if it is twice as good as Ten Fidy (since it costs more than twice the price). [​IMG]

    Come on T... The only place you could get it was direct from Cigar City in Tampa this year. If you can find it at that price I'd be more than happy to buy it and resell it all to him and several others who are buying them up. Hell, I've seen it for even more than $40. That price includes tax as well and is exactly what I'm paying for it.

    See above. Also, if he's not interested, I sure as hell am!

    Yep

    O Hai! [​IMG] I can snag at least 4 more dry bottles. The rest would be refrigerated and I wouldn't recommend shipping those out.

    Why can't you ship bottles that have been refrigerated? I do all the time, you can take beer in and out of the fridge and not affect the beer at all. As for paying $40 for Hunahpu's, I just wouldn't do it, you are almost in Bourbon County Rare territory as far a price goes and if I had to pick between the two of them Rare would win every time. It's not that Hunahpu's isn't an amazing stout, it just doesn't warrant a $40 price tag no matter where or when you can buy it. It's very tasty, I recommend you open one now before the flavor from chillies wears off, you showed be warned that the flavors vary pretty heavy from different bottles. I had some that were very hot and boozy and the ones I have are very rich, vanilla and chocolatey which is strange since they all come from the same batch...

    I had to get my wife's car serviced yesterday in a town an hour away. Stopped in and they had Boulevard's Chocolate Ale in stock. They had around 8 bottles total. Decided to pick up one, along with their Smokestack Imperial Stout 2011 version. Wish I could get my hands on the Saison-Brett.

    22 oz versus 12?

    I paid $5 for a single can of Ten Fidy. Not that big of a difference.
