Saw they released it yesterday and all the Spec's in Houston were sold out before the end of the business day. I looked all around town and NOBODY knew what the hell I was talking about when asking for this beer, until I got to a certain liquor store.

After asking the guy if there was a limit and having him look at me crossways like I was purple, I grabbed four.

Drinking one now. It tastes exactly like you think it would. A good, standard Imperial Stout flavor with pumpkin thrown in there. Delicious!

Highly recommended!

I caught it cask conditioned over the weekend. Highly recommend people taste it if they can find it.

Everything was sold out before I got off of work that day.

Yeah I hear it sells out within minutes of hitting the shelves. We're going to go back for more this Friday but I fear it will be gone by then.

I scored two bottles at the specs at Jones and 290. I couldn't force myself to finish the first one. Needs some time to mellow that "imperial" flavor imo

Yeah I got lucky. Apparently living in a college town has its perks. None of the other college kids are willing to spend seven bucks on a bomber when they can get 30 beers for twenty bucks down at walmart.

Bought this the other day here at Matherne's grocery store in Baton Rouge. Absolutely fantastic...my SWMBO even loved it too!

$7.99 a bottle though is a bit steep.

Time to clone this sucker

Got some on draft yesterday at Red's Porch in Austin. It's definitely worth trying. Incredible pumpkin/spice aroma and a well-balanced malt taste.
