    Dogfish Head Raison D'Être. I hate to put Dogfish Head on this thread because I generally love their beers but this one was just flat out bad.

    Me too. Brought it to a party and no one liked it. Passed it around and dumped it. Like you say, if I tried it now (that I'm a little more experienced with real beer) I might like it. But I'm afraid to try. I remember it as horrible.

    Rogue John John Hazelnut. I don't know if it was just too old but it was absolutely flavorless. I ended up pouring it out. I am just not a fan of Rogue beers. I am not saying they are a bad brewery just that I have tired several of their beers of my favorite styles and didn't like any of them.

    Bell's Amber Ale. The taste is okay but the aroma is off. It might just be me but it smells like baby puke to me.

    I have four left that I need to find a home for.

    Sierra Nevada Hoptimum. It's an ok beer but with so many other good IIPA's I won't buy this again.

    Spike & Jérôme’s Cuvée Délirante - I literally gagged after the first sip. I'm sure these guys worked hard to produce this beverage and I don't mean to sleight the effort, but dang. Not for me.

    ts funny how there is so much variety and that almost any beer that anyone says has it defended. with that being said i will gave any beer a second try minus Voodoo Maple Bacon Donut. I'm glad i had the experience, i'm glad i recorded in an unbiased and objective way in my beer log, but never again.

    Sea Dog Raspberry Wheat Ale. It left this lingering aftertaste for hours that I didn't like at all.

    New Holland Envious. Had it on draft the other night, took two sips, ordered another beer. It was just awful.

    I have to say Boulevard's Chocolate Ale.

    I don't know if I got an infected bottle or what, but it tasted like beans (and not cocoa beans).
    I love Boulevard, but would never drop the cash on this again to find out if it was just a bad bottle.

    That and Troegs' Mad Elf. I know it gets good ratings around here, but good god that stuff is nasty!! Tastes like honey and cough syrup...

    Six Rivers Chili Pepper Ale. I think this one was too hot for me if I remember correctly.

    Weyerbacher Heresy. I like bourbon aged stouts, but only if the bourbon melds well with the rest of the flavor. Heresy's bourbon flavor was overwhelming--should have just picked up a bottle of bourbon.
