    So, I celebrated my Presidents Day off of work with a few beers that included a Alesmith Speedway Stout. The SS was a great beer, but the 12%abv got to me as after finishing I pretty much passed out on the couch. Needless to say, my wife was not too thrilled with this. I wish I would have saved this big beer for a special gathering and shared with friends/family. I was pretty excited for the SS, opened it, and felt I had to finish it, all by myself.............

    (Three Floyds Dark Lord)

    I asked many friends and family members, but they all HATE stouts.
    Bought a bottle and hung on to it for months before just saying too bad.
    Quite thrilled to converted most of them to craft beer.

    Similar experience with Speedway Stout. I can drink a 750 ml of something higher than 12% without too much issue, but for some reason, Speedway Stout is tough to slog through on your own.

    Voodoo Maple Bacon and Dark Lord. I really should have just given them away.

    firestone sucaba from last year

    that has quite a kick ! definitely enjoyed it but wouldn't hurt to share it.

    unfortunately not a lot of people i know enjoy craft beer as much as i do let alone sours/wild ales and barley wine especially. definitely an acquired taste that takes getting used to IMO

    I don't think there's any beer (normal below 20%) that I would have a problem finishing abv wise, but getting through one of those because of how big they are is a different question.
    I thought this was beers you wished you shared because of how amazing it was. For me Ry(e)an Ale.

    Lost Abbey Serpent Stout... Didn't need that as my nightcap at Monk's cafe last winter. Had such a "good time" that I nearly overslept my work conference the next morning, YIKES!

    I opened the SS after i had a few hopslams and sucks, normally the SS wouldn't have been a problem for me either. I just had to labor through it a little and wish i would have saved for a different occasion

    Creme Brûlée and Double DBA from FW for me. Liked em both a lot but...12 oz. of each would've worked for sure!

    I went to a summer party on a lake and brought one four pack each of Gandhi Bot and Hop Crisis. I did not drink them all, but I had the lion's share. Was out by 7pm and woke in the morning. Woof.

    A few
    Baller Stout
    Speedway stout
    Imperial Biscotti Break
    Bourbon County Coffee stout

    It's awful to share a beer when the person your sharing with isn't into it as much as you. I once shared a Mikkeller Beer Geek Brunch weasel with a friend who made wise cracks with practically every sip.

    Speedway stout comes to mind, amazing beer but it definitely kicked my ass. You live, you learn lol

    I have a bottle of Labyrinth that I've been excited to try for a while now, but I will definitely be sharing that one. That's a little more than I'm willing to tackle in one sitting by myself.

    The Bruery Cuir: drank a whole bottle to myself plus a couple other beers and passed out.
    The Bruery Smoking Wood: drank a whole bottle to myself plus a couple other beers and passed out.
    The Bruery Autumn Maple: drank a whole bottle to myself plus a couple other beers and a little bit of another substance, didn't pass out but just felt too intoxicated in an unpleasant way.

    Anyone see a trend here?

    Imperial Biscotti Break. It's one of my favorite beers, but I get the sugar shakes about half-way through.
