    Slow Southern Steel from the other Epic ales in Oregon, supposed to be a chile beer -- "From first spew to the last hot and sour taste, this is a royal flush."

    Stone Punishment. Oddly enough, I thought the heat level was just right - a shame it was about as well integrated as 1930's Mississippi.

    Two people couldn't finish a 500ml bottle that cost $20. That just about sums up the experience.

    I stay away from Shipyard but on a whim I got the Mint Chocolate Stout. Nothing this beer had to offer I enjoyed whatsoever. Drain pour was systematic.

    Mothers Raspberry Imperial Three Blind Mice...when it warmed up a little it tasted like Robitussin. Extremely disappointing...

    Darkhorse 4 Elf. The up front flavor wasn't bad but the after taste was terrible.

    I'm opposed to drain pours 99% of the time on principle, but I came damn close on Christmas Eve with Brooklyn Black Ops, and actually did pour the last ounce or two just because I was ready for something else. Disappointing since I've wanted to try this one for awhile and paid $22 for the bomber, but something about the flavor was really off putting, maybe the champagne yeast. Almost no barrel character either.

    It's been a while, but Pestilence from Rivertown Brewing. Here is a hilarious quote from one of their other "beers"

    "Once again Rivertown ruins beer with a slew of rotten flavors and seltzer water"

    Lagunitas Brown Shuga. I thought I was going to get a brown ale of sorts with a mellow taste. Ended up being more of an IPA taste to me. Sorry, but I'm one of the few who hate IPAs. To me, they've become a very bastardized portion of the market. Everyone makes one. So what? Give me a good porter, brown ale, milk stout or bock. If I can see through it, I don't drink it most of the time.

    Sam Adam's Juniper IPA. It was completely drinkable until I opened a bottle of Double Jack and compared against that.

    From what I understand this beer was made to be drain-poured.

    DFH 60 and 90 Minute IPA's. Tasted like a bag of fermented brown sugar with rubbing alcohol and a few hops thrown in for good measure.

    I just picked up 5 bombers of Eagle Claw fist after my holiday trip to Massachusetts. Easily my favorite Red Ale.

    If they are out of date though they can have a very peculiar taste.

    Sam Adams Ginger Bread Stout....Way too much spice going on and really sweet taste...Down the drain....Smelled like a gingerbread cookie but the taste was overly everything. I prefer my 9% beers to taste good not just get me drunk.

    Enjoy

    Surly's WET. Says it was canned 9/12/13.

    Tasted like bud light or piss water with tiny hints of citrus. I was seriously bummed.

    I am hoping I got a bad batch/too old/someone switched out the beer the day minr was canned amd replaced it with something else...because I took two sips and down the drain it went.

    This thread is full of idiots. If you don't like a style don't buy an expensive bottle, dump it then whine how it sucked online! Try SAMPLES at a local craft bar and introduce yourself properly. If you hated seafood would you order a $40 shell fish stir fry while out to dinner? People are so stupid!
