    Did they re-release a newer version of the Barrel Aged Imperial Storm Trooper? Because if it's the original batch which was less than 200 bottles from several years ago, it's infected and not drinkable at all. So be warned, if it's the first batch, it'll be in a 500ml bottle with the original artwork and gold wax...

    Rereleased in 375 ml bottles. From what people are saying on BA its pretty tasty.

    This one is of an old barrel bent over grabbing its back with a cane...I'll snap a pic when I get mine and or when Im home from work and can grab one from BA.

    Then you are safe...it's the first barrel aged batch that's infected, enjoy!

    Liefmans kriek good as always.
    Judas blonde. Interesting flavor profile, the 8.5%/17 proof were nicely integrated, I liked it.

    My local place is tapping a cask of Hopslam next week. I'm excited. Also had Zombie Dust on cask at the brewery last weekend. It was exceptional.

    Nice I should be getting some in a few weeks...how many batches are released a season? I might want to ask my trading partner to wait for the second release seeing I wont get a box to him till a week from wed most likely.

    I can't figure out where I can get it. It said I should be able to buy it in chicago, but the website locator only lists the brewery itself.

    Do you know if bottles will be available in SC? I know that it stole the show at the Charleston Brewvival 2012.

    I have no idea. It'll be a rare find if you do. I'd call to major stores and ask but they might not even know.

    Is it available in your area? I have some family up that way that might be able to grab some.

    My friends are sort of getting into craft beer and they are desperate to try Pliny the Elder, we are located in MA though. Anyone who has distribution (CA,PA?,CO?) want to send me a few bottles? I would happily trade for some of the good stuff available here or pay for the bottle, shipping, and a small convenience charge. Let me know!
