Petrus Aged Red - My first drain pour. Then I went back and bought another... see you in 5 years.
I am the proud owner of a "Battle Priest" its one of Three Floyd's 35$ "limited" hand numbered things..its their first use of Brettanomyces..and I have one..yaay..anyone want to traed for it?
Rogue Juniper Ale.
Only reason I bought it was... well, my friend's roommate hates gin; at least, that was until gin became the only thing we ever bought for him. Since, we've had a running joke about gin and anything with juniper. I got pressured into getting the Rogue while building a six-pack (snagged some greats, though- BCBS, Hopslam, Lagunitas Sucks, Founders Breakfast). It was just deaddoves.jpg, I don't know what I thought it'd be.
A four-pack of "Red Mex" tequila flavored beer. It was unbelievably cheap. Until I read about it (it's not on BA). Haven't tried it. Thinking I won't.
Raging Bitch by Flying Dog. Never again.
Dark Horse's King of the Forest. Uncarbonated soy sauce. Whats sad is the beer has incredible potential, I just think they stuffed too much in the bottle.
I regret opening this thread.
This last post worries me as I was really looking forward to opening this one soon.
No way. Black crack is imho the best beer to come out of houston for a long long while. A pint of something comparable would cost you the same at a bar. Well worth it. I paid 45 for a black tuesday locally and i would have rather had three black cracks anyday.
Full Sail IPA. It tasted like metal and was incredibly disappointing.
Sierra Nevada/Russian River Brux. That's 15 bucks this guy would take back.
I really regret purchasing Youngs Double Chocolate Stout. I mean, if you think that's a good example of a chocolate stout, then boy are you in for a treat if you come over to the UK and try some of our actually great ones.
What you didn't like drinking nail polish remover mixed with ass?
Bully guppy was horrible, just horrible.
Yeah, I just had the 11.11.11 in February of this year and I thought it was phenomenal.
Too cream stout was my first ever drainpour, never had pt5 but I've not been impressed with dark horse.
I love raging bitch...most others I've tried are meh.
For me, Founders Devil Dancer @$6/12oz. Glad I only bought 1 but I would have much rather had gotten another 10th Anniversary Ruination (which I purchased at the same time, same price).
For those saying the Voodoo Bacon whatever, what were you expecting? Bacon flavored beer?? F'ing gross.
Guess ill be planing a trip...
Sprecher Black Bavarian. I don't think I like the style at all, tasted like bacon grease to me.
3 bottles of Brux when it was released. They should add a cavaet that it's a non-sour American Wild.
Don't like the Double Crooked Tree? I thought the Fore Smoked and Plead the 5th were both solid. Absolutely hated the Tres Blueberry, and thought the Too Cream was just meh... and compared to the Scotch Ales we have at my shop from other microbreweries, I feel like their Scotty Karate blows most of them away.
My buddy bought me back a 4pack of Kentucky bourbon barrel stout. I gave him 15 bucks. Tasted like someone dropped a doubleshot of vinegar in the bottle. I assumed that particular bottle was bad or infected. Drain poured the first. Then the second. Couldn't even bring myself to open the 3rd and 4th.
'13 Hopslam - I left 4 bottles in a golf trip fridge. Didn't bother to bring them home.
Elysian Peste. Never poured a beer out until this one.
I wasn't able to track down double crooked tree near me, regular crooked tree was decent and so was one oatmeal stout. If you can get it I like founders dirty bastard better than scotty. Based on other people I would have a better impression of dark horse had I gotten to try double crooked tree and pt5 yet
Don't know how the Dirty Bastard slipped past me... def a solid beer there, little less abv. than a Scotty but awesome none the less. Def pick up a Double Crooked Tree if you get the chance. We just got their Thirsty Trout Porter in but if it's anything like the Percolator I don't even want to waste my money on 1.
This is the best description I have ever seen!!!
Bards gold... first beer ever that I had to drain pour the ENTIRE six pack... And before you bash me for buying it in the first place, just let me say that I always buy beer that I have never had with very few exceptions. I Read a review that said it tasted like burnt plastic (after the fact) and it was.the perfect description. Just let this be your warning...
Hey man, these small batches vary bottle by bottle - some bottles got great reviews. Mine was #99 of 804. Hope yours is better, but make sure to split it with people and drink it warmer. Hope the best for ya, Cheers!
Well then, boy are you in for a treat.
Thanks, I'll be here all evening...
- Cellar Rat Brewery tasters 12 pk
- Breckenridge Christmas Ale ..they (do) make a good Vanilla Porter though & their "471" is pretty Decent.
every beer other than Black Rat was over carbonated and gushing. ANd below average at best.
my thoughts Exactly!!
When I was new to beer, I saw a bunch of "sale" beers at a local liquor store. I bought a bunch without even checking the dates, and some were up to a year old. That was all well and good for the stouts, but the brown ales and Scottish ales... yuck! I also bought a ton of Sam Adams Imperial series for half price... definitely regret getting the Imp. White. The stout was a good buy, and the wee heavy was just meh.
In terms of fresh beers, I was underwhelmed by SA Verloren for the price I paid, and I regret paying $3.50 for a can of Sapporo.
Voodoo Donut, and I haven't even drunk it yet, so now it's old to make matters worse.
Most DFH Ancient Series beers...especially Ta Henket
Rogue Double Chocolate by far the worst purchase at $13 a bottle that pile of shit can sit on the shelf forever.
Vivant's Tart Side of the Moon (too tart/sour), and New Glarus Enigma (unless you like sour apples).
Might have to be Voodoo Doughnut, the worst part being bringing it to a bottle share and subjecting others .
