    I think he's an accidental troll. Just doesn't get it but really likes to chime in.

    Highest- NB Lips of Faith Transatlantique Kriek: +23.2% @4.25
    Lowest- Southern Star Black Crap.. (Crack**): -39.6% @2.5

    The New Belgium beer was my first Kriek, so I had nothing to compare it to in it's style, and I enjoyed it thoroughly, so I rated accordingly.

    As far as Black Crack goes, I rated it according to style as well. 2.5 is right in the middle as far as the 1-5 scale goes, so I figured I was being generous. This IS the most lame representation of a barrel aged imperial stout that I have ever had. I've had barrel aged Wake Up Dead as well, if that puts it into perspective for you.. It's rating is clearly a representation of Texas pride.

    Ratings - Peche Mortel 5, DFH Raison D'Etre 3.5 (Just did not like this beer, I only drank half)
    rDev - Peche Mortel+13.5%, Odell Mercenary DIPA -13.8(Normally, I do like this beer too, it must have been old)

    I have many beers stashed and that I haven't reviewed yet. I am expecting there to be new highs and lows afterwards.

    +16.8 for Swamp Head Batch 300, which i scored a 4.46
    -a whopping 61.1 for Florida Avenue IPA, which is a poor excuse for a beer, and i scored 1.28

    This is silly.

    I just beat my negative rDev with my review of DuClaw's Sweet Baby Jesus, which ties my lowest rating of 2.18 (Sobrehumano Palena'ole by Maui w/ Jolly Pumpkin), but has an rDev of -44%. Sorry DuClaw.

    I gave Stone IPA a 5 back in '08 and that coincidentally gave me my highest rDev of 17.1%. I honestly wouldn't consider it a 5 anymore but since I don't really review beers anymore (just hads nowadays) I haven't bothered editing my old ass reviews.

    My biggest negative rDev is -58% for Heavy Seas Hang Ten. It was a bottle of pure garbage. The shittiest attempt I've ever had from an American brewery attempting a German style. To this day I count the Heavy Seas line amongst my least favorite in craft beer. And yet, the 1.6 that I scored it wasn't my lowest overall. That distinction goes to Cave Creek Chili Beer, which I scored a 1.3. An abomination, that one is.

    My highest is +23.4% on Old '99 Barleywine by Barley Creek. This one might not really count though since there are only 17 reviews and the pDev is 32.89%! lol!
    Lowest is -31.5% on National Bohemian Beer by Pabst Brewing, but that also has a low(ish) number of reviews at 208 and has a high pDev as well at 24.32%...

    Lowest rDev:
    J.W. Lees Harvest Ale (Port Cask) (1.75) -57.8%

    While I normally feel like I overrate beers, I have a much greater variance in -rDev

    Before-After is truly vile. Probably my worst beer too outside of malt liquor offerings.

    Wild Thing +44.3 %
    Great sour, great thing about it was because no one was buying, I used to buy a lot of discount bottles.

    Belle-Vue Extra Framboise (2.9 %) -61.7 %
    Appaling, nasty artificial sweeteners is all that I could taste here

    Also noteworthy:

    Tripel Van De Garre – 28.8 %
    Americans hyping a below average tripel. There is a bar near me that sells it under a different name, no one cares about it.
    That brewery makes a lot of nearly identical beers & no one cares about them.

    High: Wittekerke Rose (3.95) +53.7% - I've had this on tap and I think its pretty good-similar to the "red Hoe" Framboise and Hoegaarden mixture

    Low: Short's Pandemonium Pale Ale -58.6% disgusting drain pour
    HOTD Matt -55.5% I wasn't into this beer at all
    Lowest review -rdev Abita Purple Haze 1.5 -53.6%

    Its pretty ironic how my highest and lowest rdevs are both raspberry wheat beers

    High: Winter's Bourbon Cask Ale +74.8% (Yeah it's by Michelob, but damn if it doesn't have some delicious Madagascan vanilla flavor in there)

    Low: Corona Light -47.1% (Really?? On this site? I'd expect this at my local Don Pablo's, but not here)

    Your low: Very pithy. Loved your reaction, and no, I've not had it.

    High: Rickard's Red +30.3%. This is purely sentimental value.
    Low: Duchesse de Bourgogne -75.2%. Maybe I had a bad one but the sourness was intolerable and I couldn't find the sweetness that everyone says counterbalances it.

    Strangely enough, highest rDev is Humidor IPA. Lowest is for Heineken (just a tick, not a full review).

    +41.2 for Sam Adams Triple Bock - I only rated it a 4.1 but I guess most people don't really like it...I thought it was good.
    -55.3 Stillwater Of Love and Regret - to this day I stand by that! Really did not like that brew at all. I rated it a 1.7 (2nd worst rated beer I have to date)...bud light (my worst rated brew) got a 1.4.
