My local Kroger in SW VA had some the day after Brewmasters aired at $9.99 a bottle. I thought it was a fantastic beer, full of flavor and would gladly sip another bottle.

Anybody who wants some send me a PM. My local supplier has a large stock of it right now at $10.99/bottle. I'm in the middle of a trade with a California HBT'er right now to get him some. I'm looking for Alaskan smoked porter or whatever else I can't get on the east coast.

i don't remember exactly what it tasted like, because i got some of the first bottled batch a few months ago.

i know it was a really tasty stout, nice malty body like i expect from Dogfish Head. it didn't taste bad taste like Chicory Stout, and it wasn't strong like World Wide Stout. definitely the most drinkable stout i've ever had from Dogfish. one of my favorite stouts i've ever had.

There are still no bottles in Texas. From what I've heard, TABC had some issues with the label; my guess is they objected to the word "bitch".

This past weekend, 10 kegs made it to Texas. At least 3 of them that I know of were in Austin. The Ginger Man downtown supposedly sold out in 15 minutes, and the Flying Saucer had one as well. I tried it at the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema where they did a showing of Sunday night's Brew Masters episode.

I paid $7.50 for 8 oz of the stuff. But it was good. Really good.

The cans of Leinenkugel's had masking tape on them with JOHN'S printed in ink. Amy looked around me and said, "John is protective about his beer, isn't he?"
"I put that label on there. When company comes I want them to know the Leinie's is his, not mine."

Gotta love TABC. However, I get Flying Dog Raging Bitch all the time... Guess I'll just miss this one

I was disappointed with Bitches Brew. I love Dogfish Head and everything they stand for. Sam is really innovative obviously and their IPA's are some of the best on the market IMO. But some of these limited release specialty beers they've been coming out with just haven't been very good. Bitches, Obrama, and My Antonio, just didn't do it for me. They seemed kind of flat.. I don't know. Still, I like how they are pushing the boundaries.

I work at Bestway in Greensboro NC (look us up on beeradvocate and ratebeer). All I can really tell ya is that they HAVE sent out the second batch and that it is available at our store but in extremely limited quantities. I thought it was a good beer, but not up to the hype that everyone has been talking about. IF you are ever close to Greensboro anytime soon let me know with your name and number and I can save one for you. They are 8.99 for a big bottle (1 pint 9 fl).

Obrama? I was curious as to what you were referring to, and a Google search shows no such brew ever being created by Dogfish under the name Obrama.
