I get trigonometry. But I don't get Stella.
Feel the same way.
I am 100% right with you there. I revisited with over a year age and it was still incredibly medicinally bitter. Most English style BW's, Old Ales, and a few American styles are much more flavorful, sweeter that Bigfoot IMO. And I'm a really big fan of most all SN beers they've put out. Haven't had Barrel aged Bigfoot, but not willing to gamble on it with the price tag and not liking the regular version
I don't get Double Bastard. It's a boozy overly sweet mess of a beer. I can't see how anyone can finish a bottle.
Warlock tasted almost the exact same as Pumpking like sickly sweet vanilla pie crust in the worst way no pumpkin at all. Warlock had slight semblance of Road malt that made it slightly better but calling it a pumpkin beer is just ridiculous
Hoppy and Sour stouts I've had a few of each and I just don't get it ...
Any of The Bruery's imperial stouts. So diabetically sweet; that's all I taste!
Jai Alai. It was good but not my cup of tea-haven't bought any since the first (and only) 6 pack
I never even tried it this year. I gave it several tries the previous two years and never liked it.
I don't understand why some people go so crazy over Yeti and it's variants. First of all, Yeti shouldn't be called an imperial stout; it's a CDA. But more importantly, it's not even very good for a CDA. And while the oak aged versions at least taste more like stouts, there are so many better examples of the style for the same price or less.
Torpedo...don't get it. I find it to be not well balanced and the hops are all over the place. 92 on BA...struggling to understand that one.
Any Barleywines. They suck. There I said it.
Surly Darkness. Just don't get the hype.
And anything that taste like booze. I want beer. Not booze.
Edit: reading some replies, someone mentioned Spotted Cow.
It's not bad. But it doesn't make me want to touch myself at night.
Agree wholeheartedly with the Dale's Pale Ale dislike. I try, i know I don't like it, but I still try from time to time. Just not a good beer.
It's a stupid gimmick. I don't know where idiotic notion that Indian cuisine consists of dumping yellow curry powder into everything comes from. It's ridiculous. People aren't even aware that there are regional differences in food, just like with most countries. There is no monolithic version of 'Mexican' food or 'Chinese' food, there is great variation from one locale to another.
Holy hell, I went off topic with that one. /rant
Lagunitas Sumpin Ale and Sucks. I did try a fresh Sucks which was better, but the presentation was easily its strongest suit (and it really is a marvel)
If you haven't had Ruination 2.0, I would recommend it. I used to gloss over Stone, but that one brought me back and inspired me to give them a second chance. Had a few other nice ones from them since then... newer ones from the stochasticity series.
I'll second Indra Kunindra as a beer I don't "get." To me, it actually tasted okay...but why does the hell does it need to exist? I doubt there's anybody who, when they think of a beer, starts craving a curry/lemongrass/chili/whatever else flavored export stout. More of a show-off type of thing to me.
Oh yeah! Pumking sucked too. Sorry fellas.
Edit : Nevermind, I was thinking of Punk'n.
Old Rasputin reg and BA, both horrible. Also, sour beers in general.
I can't stand Abraxas, nor do I like Mexican Cake. I don't suppose I'd like Hunahpu either. Just don't like chili and cinnamon mixed into chocolate.
Most anything from Short's Brewing Company. Specifically, Short's Soft Parade and Short's Good Humans both come to mind. I wouldn't exactly call them an inferior quality, but I just cannot think of anything I've had from Short's that I actually enjoyed.... especially after hearing everyone else rave about them.
What's up with Prairie Bomb's price? To me it tastes just like Victory at Sea, except you can get that one for like $15 a 6-pack. A hint of chili spice isn't worth the exorbitant markup.
Hey Hoppsbabo, I respect almost everything you write here. With the exception of the above.
Things in beer world that I don't get:
KBBS limitation in 12oz format
3 Sons Brewing having issues
Velvet Speedway release
Silent releases with no hints or bread crumbs
Dark Lord for me, it's just too sweet for my taste, especially compared to other huge stouts
I certainly understand if you don't like it which is totally fine, but the rest of what you said makes zero sense. In your world why does anything need to exist, we should all just drink water.
barleywine. I don't understand what it is about them that I don't like. Maybe the sweetness? I always end up having that shudder-like-I-just-drank-cough-syrup reaction.
I 2nd the dogfish head 61 =grapey garbage
Also agree on pumpkin beers except for sasquatch by milwaukee brewing company they add sweet potato and mellows out some of the pumpkin flavor
Anything Southern Tier. Every beer of theirs that I've tried has a weird, funky undercurrent of a taste that I just can't get past. For me, I have yet to see the attraction of ST.
Peanut butter beers.
No kidding, big fan of Dales Pale Ale.
I haven't been able to stomach Belgian Style IPA's. I just don't like that combination. I've had some poor beers, but Le Freak from Green Flash is the only beer that I had to pour down the drain.
I don't have a taste for sours yet, but I'm still trying them from time to time. I did enjoy Pina Agria from Odell, so I think sours still have a chance with me, but it's not a style I get excited about right now.
Lagers. All of 'em. Fortunately, we have a choice to not drink the ones we don't get. THE END.
Sculpin, I don't understand the love. One of the most puzzling beers to me, its good, not great. I personally thing Big eye is a better IPA. Also, 15-17 for a 6 pack, no thank you
I have some friends who absolutely rave over Sweet Baby Jesus. To me it just tastes artificial.
Sounds familiar. A lot of folks here rave about the peanut buttery Omnipollo /Buxton Yellow Belly too and I don't get it either.
I love peanut butter of all types but it just doesn't belong in beer.
Any spicy beer. I love spicy food, but spicy beer doesn't work for me.
Style... treatment... it really doesn't matter. Analyzing the term I used is trivial and distracts from my point. I dislike anything aged in whisky or bourbon barrels. Everything I have had with this treatment has been a stout. I do enjoy stouts, but not when barrel aged. I also can appreciate and enjoy a good scotch, but it doesn't need to be mixed with beer.
Not all barrel aging is bad though. I have had barrel aged saisons and wits that were quite delicious.
