Beers you will never drink again

Discussion in 'Beer Talk' started by keithmurray, Oct 14, 2012.

  1. Just had a 2010 Old Stock Ale and two years after having this 'cellared', it's still an unbalanced beer that is just a boozy mess. Choked down half of it and put the other half away to braise some lamb in.

    What are some beers that you will simply never drink again?

    New Holland Cabin Fever Brown Ale. Bought two 6-packs last winter and was immediately turned off from the first bottle. For some reason, it had hints of a menthol taste (reminded me of Salem cigarettes). Maybe I had a bad batch, but it was totally not what I was expecting.

    It's always interesting to me how two people can taste things differently. I had the 2010 Old Stock (as well as the 2009). Loved both of them both aged and "fresh." Personally I thought the alcohol was a noticeable but not overpowering. Every winter I look forward to buying it and Bell's Thir Coast Ale.

    JW Lee Lagavulin barrel. Yuck, at a buck an ounce an expensive two sip drain pour. Lagavulin is one of the worlds best Scotch Whiskeys to do this to it should be illegal.

  21. JW Lees Lagavulin Cask (yikes)
    Ola Dubh (wayyy to expensive for an odd beer, though I like Old Engine Oil)


    FWIW, I also found the 2010 Old Stock Ale to be a boozy, horrid mess even w/over a year on it, but LOVED the 2011, both fresh and aged, to the extent that I bought 2 4-pks of it!

    Victory Otto didn't appeal to me at all. It tasted like the puddles left on the ground after the fire department put out the fire at the bandaid factory.

    Coney Island Freaktoberfest, got 1/3 through the first bottle and dumped it. Took me three weeks to give the other bottles away.

    Also, DFH Aprihop. Ipas shouldn't have to sit for 6 months to become drinkable.

    I picked up a Gales Old Prize Ale from the late '90's because I had read about all the subtleties that develop in this beer over the years---- I'm still not sure if what I had was actually beer--- it was a thin, watery mixture of acetone and newspaper--- abs awful!!!!

    I agree... Old Stock Ale is a total mess.

    For me,

    most pumkin beer
    most black IPA
    fresh DFH 120 (yuck)

    I am with you on the Tweasonale. That was one of the most discusting beers I have ever had. I also thought the Festina Peache was pathetic. I'll never buy these beers again
     
  34. Voodoo Donut
    Shorts Brewery Peaches n Cream
    and a couple others from that brewery.

    Those are beers I wouldn't drink if it's all they had. I'd drink toilet water first.

  39. Anything from Southern Tier (other than the 2X milk stout which I think is pretty good) and any experimental/off-the-wall beer from Dogfish Head (but I like a lot of their "regular" lineup beers).

    This would be pretty long for me, but thinking of a noteworthy beer, it would be the NG/ Alpine collar Super IPA. I still have a bottle of it if anyone wants one!
