Not sure if serious.
Booze bomb aisle 10. It's hard for me to call any beer boozy; I drink Black Tuesday out of a schooner, but this was something different. Do not want.
Dragons Milk was delicious,.
Not too long ago I had a mint porter and I had to pour it down the drain. It was like drinking a beer right after brushing your teeth.
I mean... each to their own, but wow... This is one of the first beers I had that turned me on to craft beer back in the day. It made me realise what a perfect example of what "good" beer is capable of. I guess you could say it has a little nostalgic value to me. But even so, I believe it's an amazing beer all around lol
But that's what an opinion is I suppose.
Iron City Brew and any light beer on the market.
I haven't had a good beer from them yet, so I agree. I was extremely disappointed in their vanilla doubledog, or whatever it's called. Oh well.
I love Arrogant Bastard. A great mix of malt and hops I hadn't experienced before.
Yeah, I remember that from my homebrewing days (1976-early 1980's) guess I'm still influenced by P. Ballantine's advertising.
I noted them separately based on what the brewer at Narragansett in the 70's (blanking on his name) said in an interview IIRC. Will have to double-check my notes. Falstaff even marketed a short-lived Ballantine Brewers Gold Premium Ale briefly in the late '70's>early '80's.
"100"? I take it that figure includes homebrew/clone "guesstimate" recipes? I wonder if there were than many batches of the original Ballantine India Pale Ale out of Newark . Well, post-Repeal batches, anyway - since the brewery ownership changed in '33 and they hired a Burton-trained brewer who I assume created the IPA recipe just as he did for Ballantine XXX Ale.
So, that BIPA was brewed for less than 40 years, from 1933 to 1971 or so (brewery being shuttered in early '72) and being aged "in the wood" for 1 year, I'd guess they didn't have the wooden tank capacity for a lot of batches per year. I've never come across any mention of actual barrelage for what eventually was a minor brand of Ballantine's. They dropped the draught version in the '50's, doing very little promotion of it after the 1940's.
After Falstaff bought the brand and then S&P started moving production around for the next two decades (Cranston > Ft. Wayne > Milwaukee) it seemed to me that it wasn't brewed too often. Though the beer is still often discussed today, when it was available it used to sit on the dusty bottom shelves ignored at most retailers IIRC. I still remember a few cases sitting for months on the "warm" floor of what was my local beer store in the mid-90's. When I go back there occasionally, I still walk by that section of the store, look at the stacks of Corona, Mike's Hard Lemonade and Bud Light and think, "That's where I picked up my last case of Ballantine India Pale Ale..."
I shared a bottle of Crème Brûlée and really enjoied it, as a matter of fact I could have drank the whole bottle. I understand everyone has different taste for different things, but their's a lot of beers people are posting here that I like.
Do you mean Abita's Pecan Haevest or Lazy Magnolia's Southern Pecan.
DFH Indian Brown Ale. I generally like their beers, but for whatever reason, I can barely get down more than a couple of sips of this one.
Founders Frangelic Mountain Brown
Laughing Dog CSB
Sorry, Pecan Harvest. Got the two crossed up.
Ironically, speaking of tasting things differently I really enjoyed Cabin Fever Brown Ale, quite a bit actually. Though to your point when I mixed this in w/a brown ale tasting session it definitely stuck out a bit taste wise, I get that old tobacco vibe as well. I think freshness for this one maybe key as the taste isn't always there,
My sentiments exactly with the Palo Santo Moran. I can drink the Indian Brown, but it's higher gravity counterpart is the vilest existence known to man. However, I am going to give it another shot, just to be fair.
OFallon Hemp Hop Rye
Southern Tier Oak Aged Unearthly IPA
Horny Goat Hopped up an' Horny
Is it really that bad?
I'm kind of the opposite. While I don't dislike Indian Brown, Palo Santo blows it out of the water. I love those wood notes mixed with the burn of alcohol and the delicious, thick, syrupy quality it has going for it.
to each his own in this thread, but yes, it's that bad -
Thumb print Cherry Stout. YUCK!!!!! Never again. I received this gem as a extra and I was very thankful. Well until I opened it. Some one made a mistake and put Cherry cough medicine in this bottle instead of beer. I mean this straight up was one of the worst beers, Drinks I have ever had. Drain poured about 9 of the 12 ozs it was so bad. Well getting extras from traders is great and I share the love but Ill never drink this beer( cough medicine) again.
Enjoy your Holidays people
Sixpoint - Resin
Way over the top with hops, killed my tastebuds, not drinkable.
The Bruery - 5 Golden Rings. Booze/alcohol, yeast, sugar. More booze/alcohol.
Had 1/4 of the bomber and it took me forever to finish it.
Love Resin. Fantastic beer...
Have you tried Ruination?
Newburgh Brewing Peat Smoked Stout.
The pizza beer family. Novelty....and that's all.
Avery - The Beast
Had a bottle from 2007 two nights ago (yes, properly cellared) and it was just foul - no balance, boozy, mediciney and all around yuk. Certainly didn't age well and I have a hard time seeing myself enjoying it fresh.
...and Ghost Scorpion - a terribly foul novelty that I was happy to try but never want to see again
anything from Empyrean and Lakefront
Anything from Rogue. I'll not even try it any further. I realize that it has its followers and some people like it. Just not my taste. I've never had a beer from Rogue that had any body or mouthfeel.
Hoppin Frog Sweet Evil..... I do not drain pour anything... (even voodoo doughnut) but I took two sips and it got tossed down the drain....
Didn't care much for the Widmer Gose I had last night. Too salty tasting for me.
Dfh ta henket...totally undrinkable
Porkslap Pale Ale from Butternuts. This just didn't work for me. Of course there are those who liked it. I tried it after trying their IPA which I liked quite a bit.
Any of the shitty fruit beers that show up here in Florida 9 mos of the year...
Southern tier Pumking.. Tasted like a cheap pumpkin candle.
Prize Old Ale
Death by hops
Anything by skull coast (if they're even still in business)
I would say evil eye, but you never know, in 50 years, I might be homeless.
Pliny the Younger. Once, I walked into a bar and got a glass without any issue. Pure luck. I will never likely be in the right place and time for that to happen again.
