The Beer Temple (Amsterdam) now has a few bottles of two past Dark Lord vintages available:
- 2009 batch - EUR 200 (USD 267)
- 2010 batch - EUR 175 (USD 234)

I realise these are sky-high prices, even if they are from former years, but they’re generally not available in Europe, so here’s your chance. (Cracked Kettle, now closed, for awhile had the most recent Dark Lord selling for EUR 50 (USD 67.))

Cheers, Martin (Brussels)

FYI - I am in no way associated with the Beer Temple; and have never paid more than EUR 20 (USD 27) for a bottle myself but I am generally happy when harder-to-get stuff makes it to the Benelux and often pay for USA/Scandinavian macros in the secondary market...

I’ve seen it too. Incredible prices, even for a vintage. Glad I got it in a trade.

You could easily trade for a 2010 and probably 2009, in the same trade for some European beers and be far far under 175€.
More importantly, imo, there are far better stouts to trade for anyway, some, eg The Abyss, are much easier to get too.

Keep in mind that bars generally charge twice as much as bottle shops, because you are paying for the pleasure of drinking it there. Still way above my budget, but perhaps the next guy will sell it for EUR 100...

Wow. If it weren’t for the heavy shipping, I would gladly trade a bottle for 200 EUR of beer we can’t get here.

Just absurd, just like the poor lad in Brazil who was going to pay so much for a westy. I’ll gladly take a nice DeMolen or Emelisse stout in Amsterdam over this beer.
