    I'm gathering bottles for a small share in a month when I graduate college. So far I have some high quality lambics, barleywines, and stouts.

    I want to find at least one really, really, really bad beer to bring as well. Not Labatt Blue bad, rather something that is just bizarrely awful. Preferably something that is uncommon. Does anyone have any recommendations?

    Mikkeller's Rauch Geek Bacon.

    To be honest, it's my least favorite beer I've ever had. Now, it was my first smoked beer, and I also expected something somewhat like Beer Geek Breakfast, but I thought it was horrible and quite bizzare. I'd like to revisit it, but the memory is still stained so bad that I'm not sure I could put it to my lips.

    You need some squid ink beer, or maybe something with whale testicles.

    I thought that was a nice beer.

    My most recent bizarre tasting beer was Shmaltz Circum Session Ale (yes, you read that right). Released around April Fool's Day. It was a "Barrel Aged Tart Pomegranate Wit." It tasted the way toe jam smells. It was very odd at the first sip. I actually liked it. I'd call it bizarre but not horrible... but I could see others calling it horrible. It's keg only so you'd have to get a growler. Curious souls should look it up just to see the tap handle art.

    Taj Mahal (UB - India). Don't worry too much if it happens to be out of date or sits in the sun a little bit before you serve it... worst beer I've ever tasted.

    Wells Banana Bread Beer. I know it gets some love, but man that was the worst beer I've ever had. Liquid Banana Laffy Taffy

    - Super Brew 15 - notoriously horrific Romanian barleywine-like liquid
    - Wiseacre Unicornucopia (2015) - blue cheese as beer, and it's even worse than that sounds

    Choc Lobster from Dogfish Head. Try to imagine what your socks would taste like if you aged them on dead lobster and malt-o-meal - that's Choc Lobster.

    Atwater Michelda. If you can make it through a whole can without puking, your taste buds are broken

    They're still left over from way back in the day. My dad still has a few cans. One day I'm going to work up enough courage and stupidity to crack one open.

    I actually kind of like it. Not something I'd drink everyday but shared at a pouring, it's quite good.

    I'd go with Stone Belgo Anise IRS. Sends shivers up my spine just thinking about it.

    Dogfish Head's Ta Henket was gross, and bizarre, but definitely interesting.

    What about Jalapeno Sculpin? I happened to like it, but was insanely intense.

    That's what I came here to say. Horrific stuff. Didn't make me vomit, but it tasted enough like vomit that I think I got the experience.

    Less terrible but still awful is Flat 12's Cucumber Kolsch or Lakefront's New Grist (or Green's Quest or some other gluten-free foulness of your choice).

    Voodoo Doughnut is usually pretty terrible, too. The Maple Bacon is all smoke and the Lemon Chiffon Crueller tastes like Lemon Pledge smells.

    Boulevard Funky Pumpkin - tastes like vinegar, no pumpkin noted. Out of season, but probably available on the shelf turd table.

    You know, not all of us consider whale testicles to be that bizarre an ingredient.

    Sweet Baby Jesus by Duclaw. Who the hell puts peanut butter in a stoutimely? Also second the cherry blossom beer and while Rogue Beard Beer tastes mediocre, the special ingredient may make some stomachs turn.
