Ommegang Take the Black Stout. Very thin and not tasty at all.
It was this past summer, while golfing. Hot Odell IPA. A fantastic beer, but not when it's hot. If I was a better golfer I'd have more time drinking while driving to my ball I blasted 400 yards. Instead there it sits in the cart warming up, as I search for my d@*# ball.
Cadillac Mountain Stout.
Sun King Sunlight Cream Ale. I was really looking forward to drinking this, after hearing them talk about it on the sunday session. Then I poured it, and it kind of smelled like B.O. Then I tasted it, and it kind of tasted like B.O. I really hope there was just something wrong with the 4-pack I got.
Warlock.. very bitter in a bad way and disappointed.
Jalapeno Pepper Ale- Bent River Brewing Company. After two sips, it was like "yeah this isn't happening." Honestly, who's idea was it to make Jalapeno beer? "Hey, let's take a perfectly good beer, and make it completely undrinkable!"
It probably didn't help that I was using it to wash down a Chicago-style Italian Beef sandwich with giardiniera...
Waste of good giardiniera.
The Beast. Tasted like boozy cherry cough syrup.
Peaches & Cream from Shorts... what a disgusting sweet mess. Split the bottle with my girlfriend and a buddy and we all poured it out. Sad thing is the Bros gave it a 100.... I'm a bit worried about their grading scale lol
Ditto on the pumpkin trend here...couldn't get through Southern Tier Imperial Pumking last night and it was used to water some plants. Even the plants hated it. So damn sweet and a malty mess. Eff all these shitty Pumpkin brews already.
ommengang game of thrones. too much anise in that stout..Yuck!
DP update: In a post awhile back I reported DPing a Mikkeller Black Hole ~ the caged & corked edition. Had the opportunity to share another one recently and it was quite tasty. The one I DPed was definitely dead. Closed the circle on that and I feel better.
Red Brick Black Eye Rye. Terrible mess.
They're still making that abomination?
This "DOUBLE I.P.A." Terrible.
I bought one of these from Trader Joe's this past summer and it was nasty!!
Yup....TJ purchase. Kept sipping it to find something worthwhile in it....then said f*ck it and my drain almost declined it as well. Worst few bucks I've spent in awhile.
Had one of Relic's Fieldhand Saison's the other week. I didn't pour it down but boy did I have to choke it down. It tasted like a wet band-aid.... I was so disappointed. I had waited quite some time to try some of their beer (never had a chance to make it up to their brewery and always miss it at bars by a day or two it seems) and was so let down.
American Beauty followed by Hopnotch in a can.
Stone Suede. It had a weird medicinal taste that was very offputting. I don't think it was infected or anything, just not my thing at all.
In their defence that is one of the sugar-free beers they make for the interested segment plus it has some other dietary requirements. A lot of those beers do taste terrible indeed but at least there is a reason.
The new labels were not clear about this which is just retarded but the new ones do state this info very clearly.
How about "I Drain Pour More Than I Drink!"
Drank half of my Velvet Merkin, then down the drain she went.
Thin, weak and not much barrel presence. I'd blame it on being already drunk but I'd had 11 beers before poppin the cap off, so I know it wasn't that. Oh well, just a disappointing 'hyped' beer.
I should have learned my lesson with my last 22oz bottle of Port Brewing High Tide IPA, but the first time I had it, I loved it.. Anyway, opened one last night (bottled 10/11/13), and ran into another bad one. I didn't notice when I first poured it, but after a few sips of bitter metallic flavors, I realized the beer in the glass was really cloudy, and I couldn't discern any hops, just that overwhelming bitter metal flavor. I tried drinking half of it, but eventually had to drain pour the rest. I don't know why I'm running into these bad bottles. I wonder what could have happened to the beer between mid-October and now to create such a dastardly concoction...
Saison Rue with about 1.5 years on it. Just awful.
Fall Hornin' by Anderson Valley. Drank about 4oz and gave the pint back across the bar. Just a horrible, terrible spice mess.
Hoppin' Frog Sweet Evil Barleywine. After reading a bunch of reviews, I put off drinking it for awhile, but saw it laying back in the cellar last week. I decided that may as well try it now. Bad mistake. Let me preface this by saying that I love Barleywines and like quite a few sweet beers, but this one was way over the top for me. I tried to have a few other people "help" me with it, but after they tried it, no dice, and they are craft beer drinkers as well. Normally I will just struggle through a beer, but this was too much. Oh well, on to the next one...
When I don't like a beer I normally try to use it for cooking somehow. Rather slow-cooker pour than drain pour. With that being said, I drain poured the shit out of some Harpoon Imperial Pumpkin on Halloween. It was too gross to even put in with some brats.
So 11 beers doesn't get you drunk?
Victory Winter Cheers. I love Dirt Wolf though!
I've bought a few of their Boatswain beers. Had one that was actually pretty good. Forgot which one though, since it's been over a year.
My most recent drain pour was Upslope IPA. Maybe it was an old can or something. It was my first time having it. Just an awful beer.
My garbage disposal is buzzed on the reg, yo.
I was making a WEE little joke ;-)
Just disappointed that no matter if I was drunk or sober, that shit would still have tasted like a cup of coffee with a little soda water and a shot of Jim Beam
only ever poured 1 beer, Rogue Voodoo doughnut -
Last one I dumped was either the Bruery Bois or Prestige De Nuits (I probably killed the spelling but I don't care lol)
I can't remember which one because they were with in days of each other.
I recently drain-poured a bunch of half full bottles XX, Pacifico, Coors and SNPA the day after a party I hosted.
Funny how the Iron Throne flew off shelves because most thought it was a one time thing so it would be a rare-collectors item (I'm guessing). Today, TtBS has been sitting on shelves well over a month and I think they'll stay there for a while. They're just not very good...
