(Kalamazoo, MI) – Though Bell’s Black Note Stout bottles went on sale Friday, the information didn’t circulate online until Saturday. [ed. note: did they explicitly ask people to keep hush hush about it?] Actually, The Beer is Good blog broke the news.
Beer Advocate members started nearly 100 threads in the trading forums since Friday, most of them “in search of” the beer.
Only 1,081 bottles were produced according to the label. Buyers were limited to two bottles per person at $23 a bottle per field reports.
As of Sunday afternoon, it is unclear as to whether the bottles are sold out yet.
