    Couldn't agree more. Triple Bock was horrid.

    Abyss 2009. It tasted metallic(copper maybe), harshly alcoholic, and cloyingly sweet, all at the same time. It took me over 2 hours to choke it down and I still have one in the fridge.

    Boulevard - Love Child and Rogue - Chipotle Ale. The last one was not so much harsh as just "why".

    If craft beers are served 32-34 degrees, most will taste hot or the flavor profile will be missing. I see a lot of lovable beers on this list. But then again different strokes different folks.

    Bruery's 5 Golden Rings was one of the harshest i've had, but I really liked it. I think I just really like big, boozy beers lol.

    Thank god this brew is retired... I felt like I was drinking a bottle of orange scented perfume! God damn gross! So so glad its retired, damn... Although I finished the entire 16 oz can, I never drain pour a beer I buy, just pinch the nose and pour it down the mouth hole. Painful though, painful... Yuk! This was about three years ago and I will never forget.

    Awwww, I don't wish for any business to go out of business, I've only had one brew from them that happened to not be of my taste... What was the reason for their loss of business?

    Quelque Chose warmed up as directed by the instructions on the bottle, I did my best to drink it down but was forced to pour it down the drain.
