How's the Backwoods Bastard? Worth picking up? Not a huge Scotch Ale fan in general, but the barrel aged aspect is always intriguing. Also, how much is "normal price" if buying singles?

Backwoods Bastard is very good fresh in my opinion, but a lot of the flavor falls out as it ages. I'm guessing you guys are getting the newest batch from this last fall, which should still be pretty good. I'd recommend trying a four back or a bottle or two if you can grab it.

I think I paid $17.99/4 pack for the backwoods.

I thought it was alright. Same on not being a big fan of scotch ales. Worth trying if you've never had it, just like all them other beers.

It's damn good, barrel comes through nicely. I'd say $4-$5 if buying single. I usually see it for $17.99 for a 4 pack.

I had one year of the Backwoods (Maybe 13) and for me it was super boozy & sweet, maybe my palette is crappy but kinda turned me off to it.

I was not a fan, still have a couple of bottles in the cellar, so I should try it and see how it's tasting now.
Same here. I probably won't buy any this time around.

Availability + price point makes Backwoods Bastard one of my favorite BA beers on the market.

I love it. Always available and not too expensive for the ABV.

I thought it was so good fresh and I have heard its even better now. I still have a couple bottles I am hanging onto. It's one of my favorites from the backstage series.

I think the low ratings comes from people not liking a little heat in their beers. Mango Magnifico seemed to have the perfect balance between heat and sweet.

Agree. I might even go as far as saying that I like an aged Backwoods over a KBS.

I thought it was pretry good. $4.59 for singles is awesome and it's really drinkable for 12%. I wasn't paying attention and finished my first one within 15 minutes. Oops. :pint:

I definitely prefer that vanilla noir though.

Got a few Pliny if any east coasters are looking to trade. Also have a Russian River Damnation I could throw in the mix. I'd love to try some Maine or Vermont beers.
