    You have a low tolerance and don't like to share?

  2. Sam Smith's organic chocolate stout. Not cuz of the alc% but because I got really sick of the taste halfway through. The first sip was delicious. The last sips were punishment.

    Double Bastard, Espresso Aged Yeti. Not only because of the ABV, but the sheer intensity of the flavors.

    I gave two buddies 4 oz pours and finished the rest myself. Tasty as all hell, but we also ended up splitting 4 packs of Coffee Bender, Furious and Bitter Brewer ooff!! I got another bottle of Syx that I am opening this summer. It should definitely have mellowed a bit after a year.

    That's alcohol abuse!
  9. Every 750ml, bomber, or special/newly released beer I purchase, I share. That's what craft beer is all about. I love tasting something with friends and discussing all the aromas, flavors we're are experiencing.

    He'Brew Jewbelation Sweet 16 Anniversary Ale. Went down way too easily for 16%, and a bomber was a little ambitious.

    Southern Tier Creme Brulee. Great at the start, dreadful by the end.

    Gotta be the sweet ones. Creme Brulee and Imperial Biscotti Break for me.
  16. Probably this 2012 Abyss I opened...

    Double Bastard Magnum. Can't believe I drank the whole thing.
  18. I've never not shared a rare, special release or interesting beer. That is what they are for IMO.

  19. I felt a bit woozy after I polished off a bottle of White Chocolate. I probably should not have chased it with a couple of Nugget Nectars either.

  20. This is how i feel, i love to have my friends try rare and speical beers, and i never want to open one just for me. It helps that i work at a great craft beer store and work with other beer geeks like my self.

    what? my beloved speedway is putting everyone out? say it ain't so!
    I'll say cherry rye, merely because that beer is too fucking awesome not to split w/ someone.
    (ha, except I didn't share!)
    As for beers that put me out, anything w/ tons of coffee (ex. BCBCS). The caffeine is deadly...

    The 2 Hair of the Dog Freds that decide to explode inside my truck today and give the inside a unique new truck smell. *sigh*

    Man, I hate that. There is a growing list of people I will NOT pull out a bomber with. All that anticipation for a moment that's ruined by a wise ass.

    Bruery - Tart of darkness - almost too much sour for one person
    Bruery - Fruet drank this one to my dome and fell asleep
    Mikkeller - Black Buffalo - yeah dont remember finishing this but woke up in the morning and it was finished
    Most barley wines in a 750 ml

    Devils Back Bone from real ale, i love sharing it with my buddies who dont drink too much craft beer. My favorite part is seeing them shitfaced after 6 beers and wondering wtf happened.
  26. Speedway Stout or He'Brew Jewbelation Sweet 16 to the dome?

    Yes please.
  27. I assume this Jewbelation Sweet 16 that I'm pers-ing would qualify for most of you

    Bolt Cutter. I drank this New Year's Eve while watching a movie. Once the movie was done I was too.

    Black Tuesday...whole bottle...one night...solo...Which lead to the saying:

    "Fuck! I ALWAYS black out after I drink Black Tuesday!"

    Which is exactly what happened after the 2012 BT Release Party...

    Bruery M3, took me five hours to take down the whole bottle.
  35. Bomber of Southern Tier Creme Brulee. Good beer but damn its sweet.

    no one should share or expose anyone else to the Rogue DooDoo Doughnut ... that was pure ass. and ive still got 2 crappy bottles of it that we shipped to TX before it became widely available.

    Now when you get pulled over for a tail light out at 9:30 am, you'll also have to do a sobriety test :p
