    Agreed. I absolutely love Old Stock.

    Two that come to mind immediately are Founders Frangelic Mountain Brown and Hoppin Frog/De Molen Super Charged Saison IPA. Toughed it out, but I was really close to drainpouring both of them.

    I'll drink it, but to be honest, I find Two Hearted to be just...meh. I think I'm probably committing a sacreligious act by admitting this. It's a well-made beer, but for some reason it never connects with my tastebuds the way it must for most others. I've always found the nose to be so darn appealing, but the taste always tends to be a bit of a letdown for me.

    I completely agree. Good beer, but, not as great as one would think from the masses here. Overrated comes to mind.

    Sol w/lime(flavor)
    Blue Moon hate the taste & the smell
    Smuttynose Brown Dog Ale, woof what a let down...the drain that is.
    Big Eddy, what a boozy, syrupy mess of a wanna be Sam Adams Imperial series. Sorry Leinny it's yet another swing and a miss.

    I'm surprised you even bother posting on a beer related site. Maybe you're better suited for wine?

    In regards to the OP, I'm currently sipping on a 2010 Old Stock and it tastes fantastic! Nothing like you describe. It's rich, malty, a touch of dark fruit and just the slightest bit of warming on the back end. No hot booziness to speak of.

    Beers I wont be drinking again...
    Pumpkin Head... and most every other pumpkin beer.
    Old Speckled Hen - I got sick the first time I had it.
    Budlight Lime (not that I really wanted to drink it in the first place)- if only it tasted like lime and not a jolly rancher.
    Steel Reserve

    7 or 8 years ago Geary's did a beer called American Ale and it was much like Ballentine XXX. I've had many of both.

    Pumking - based off the only bottle I have purchased. Someone either needs to temper my expectations, or convince me it shouldn't be flat and taste like an artifical cinnamon / nutmeg mess of a beer.

    Yeah man, I still have a bottle of 2010 left, last weekend, tried to drink a bottle of it and I found it to be very unbalanced, I couldn't decipher any flavors beyond the booziness. Maybe I need to age it a couple of more years? I wish I could trade it for something.

    The wet cardboard taste is spot on. It's amazing people drink those beers, I think CC just reported their best year ever!

    Plenty of beer I wouldn't seek out again, not because they are bad, but because I found beers that were better

    Sorry about showing up a week later! I'm going to have to respectfully disagree on the Ola Dubh. I've had most(if not all) of the variants they make many, many times. They've ranged from good to over the top phenomenal.

    I don't believe there is a beer that I would refuse to ever drink again. However, if there was, Freaktoberfest would, most likely, be at the top of that list.

    Forgot about Davidsons. Grabbed a mix 12 pack this summer and it was horrible. There is a small brew place near an ice cream shop that had some really off beer as well a few years back. Is that coopers cave?

    Enjoy

    Never trying something again goes against the spirit of beer advocacy. Read the 2011 Devil Dancer reviews, then go drink one from this year. I suppose if you have just encountered something you don't like time and again, maybe. Otherwise go ahead, it isnt going to kill you.

    Love the GF friendship. I did not think there was any cough medicine taste. Not a beer for all I can see but I hope they brew this for a long time and bring the price down. $14 a four pack. Ouch

    Enjoy

    King cobra, Budweiser, mickey's.

    Campfire porter, bayhawk porter (disgusting), and so many more that I don't remember off hand, but would if I saw them.


    Probably olfabrikken porter only because they don't make it any more, and I don't think I'll ever find another bottle.

    Anything from Victory. If they didn't have a brewpub with fucked up management I'd be drinking the crap out of their beers. As it is I'll never spend another penny on their products.

    Founders BA Spite - Habanero
    I was away from the table when the waitress announced that the Spites were just as hot as the corresponding fresh pepper. I figured it'd be hot... but it light me up! It actually wasn't a bad tasting beer, but I think I'd like it better in my chili than in my beer glass.

    Knuckle Sandwich. A boozy sweet mess of a brew. Moving away from the malty over alcoholic brews.

    Mad Elf is boozy cherry cough syrup.

    I keep accidentally grabbing Barleywines as single samplers. All of them I can't stand so far. I've tried 4-5 and all are just too heavy and boozy to enjoy.
