Yeah, or "notes of."

You can see a picture here


Seriously, the bottle and label are beautiful. I could live without the custom box though.

Better close-up pictures, where you see the 4 different lithography labels made by the artist Frans Kannik:

All 4 different bottles/labels

Bottle and box

Pictures from this charity auction for 4 donated bottles.

Looks like the one in the front has a little bit less in it... itís missing like $20.00 worth of beer!

Is it just me, or does anyone else hope this beer sucks? I donít want to think twice about wanting to try this. I just wish Sam Adams Millennium didnít rate as high as it did, so I wouldnít care that I never tried it.

Hm, I guess malt and hop prices went up this year...

Just like Opus One, this wonít be nearly worth the asking price. Will some people buy it? Maybe. Will they be suckers? Most certainly.

THIS!
I whole-heartedly agree. Iíve had Opus on several occasions, and I can think of about 5 different wines Iíd rather have before it that are under a hundred dollars.
Speaking of which, if anyone gets any Earthquake Petit Syrah and would like to do a trade of local beers. Thatíd be awesome.

Case closed.


Ok, ya, right. Then when a beer in the future goes for $401 and above...it is better...right...?
