    Westvleteren 12 at a bar in Amsterdam. I dont usually love Quads and was expecting to be disappointed because of the hype and was just blown away. To be fair I had engaged in other Amsterdam activities before and we all know that make everything taste a little better...

    Founders Imperial Stout. I was expecting it to be good, but holy shit. It blew me away. The amount of complexity and flavor in that beer is astounding.

    Agreed, I was completely expecting the positive instead of the negative when I read the title...

    I'm glad you brought this up... For the last few releases of IRS have been a huge disappointment to me. It's got a dry licorice taste to it that I haven't noticed before in the earlier vintages. It might be palate shifts and maybe what I ate before drinking it. Yet, each time I drink it I just don't dig it. BTW Woot is pretty good.

    The mind is a funny thing, and makes you see what you want to see sometimes. I coulda swore this thread was about either way- surprisingly did or did not like. Then I went back and re-read it and it wasn't like that. Oh well, I'm not the only one, I guess...

    Oops. Should've read the OP. This is a WOW, not a WHOA. :grinning:

    Oberon Ale is a UGHH for me.

    I'm just confused. Sometimes I say "whoa this is good" or "wow this is bad."
    I guess I'm disqualified from answering the question.

    Not really helping. Thread should be titled "What was your latest surprisingly bad beer?" Would have saved me a lot of extra thinking on a Saturday, a day when I am not paid to think.

    Exactly what a Scotch Ale should be IMO
    Not overly sweet, great balance and a nice mid to heavy mouth feel with just the right amount of carbonation. Pleasantly surprised!

    Sierra Nevada Idaho 7. I tried it last night and was pretty disappointed. I really haven't liked that series so far.

    woah good: rodenbach grand cru. didn't know this style could be so balanced. (flem red\brown)

    woah bad: tommyknocker brewing legend oaked imperial brown. started off promising, by halfway it turns into foul buttery vegetable wet oak drainpour.

    Worst beer I ever had was Voodoo donut maple bacon brown ale. Tasted like you poured bacon grease in it. Spent $10 on it for my wife because she liked the bottle. She took one drink and handed it to me. I took one drink and poured it down the drain.

    Latest "Blahhh" beer? Maybe that would be a better title. But this thread has been an amusing experiment on how many people can't read a few short sentences that was the original post.

    Yes!!! I knew exactly what I was going to post when I saw the thread. I bought a bottle a couple weeks back and knew nothing about it. I drank it that night and was BLOWN away. Simultaneously SUPER butt-hurt I did not buy more than one when I had the chance because they were gone two days later and none to be found anywhere else :/ I just can't get over how good it was, the price, and the fact I did not expect anything or know anything about it until I drank it. Just superb.

    Holy shit, are people really this fucking dumb? If you read the OP, you would realize that this is about negative experiences, not positive ones.
