Never understood how anyone can pour anything that they paid money for down the drain.
Simply put, why waste the discomfort, for lack of a better word, and also the calories if your watching what you eat, if something just isnt good. Not even an infection, just is bad or you don't like? Same idea if u make something to eat and it turns out bad, your burnt it or whatever the case, why would you eat it even though you paid money to buy the things you used to make it?
I rarely drain pour. But this falls into the category of "sunk cost." You already spent the money and aren't getting it back whether you drink the beer or not, so why consume something you don't enjoy?
Fuller's Vintage Ale 2012. Oxidized and just not what the brewer had in mind I'm sure. =(
Amazing on the left, utter shit on the right. Was definitely tough to drink but we didn't pour it until the end.
East coast hype to the max
2011 JW Lee's Harvest Ale. Were older vintages better than the more recent stuff? I can't image this getting the reputation it has.
Black Diamond Grand Cru (Bourbon Barrel Aged)
The bourbon just didn't work with what was otherwise a decent base beer.
I've been especially unlucky this week. Opened up an Alpha Dog Double IPA from Laughing Dog that promptly shot foam everywhere. It must have been a bad batch because it looked, smelled, and tasted nothing like it should have. That one was a shame. It's a great beer, but something went wrong with that batch. I also had to pour out a Rayon Vert from Green Flash, but it was pretty old.
Southern Tier Creme Brulee. Absolutely disgusting. I cannot believe that such a good brewery puts their name on such a terrible beer.
A bottle of Houblon Chouffe Dobbelen IPA Tripel. Not sure if there was someting wrong with the bottle, but after one sip I had enough.
I'm halfway to the sink with my second drain pour... This Belle's Cherry Stout absolutely sucks.
Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Stout--forgot that I was drinking it because it was a pretty poor example of the style. After about 2 hours, drained poured the remaining few ounces.
I've only dp'd 3 beers to date:
He'Brew Funky Jewbelation, tasted like a night of drinking different styles of beers...regurgitated.
Yeastie Boys' Rex Attitude, a smoked beer that tasted more like Chloroseptic, also had the same mouth numbing effects.
Founders Sweet Repute, ...It was just horrible.
