Scotch Ales. Still not a fan.
Edit: Anything with smoked malts also.
Lagers and Brown ales. Boring. Also Gueuze. I'm starting to like Saisons so I thought I would try a Gueuze. Holy cow, the cat piss and sour vinegar is just too much for me.
Sour beer of any type
Smoked lagers...not a fan
Not a fan of pumpkin beers or anything with Brett.
Black IPAs, Hefes, Dry Stouts for me.
I feel like I've always found an exception to the rule. i.e. - don't like wheat - but I'll drink a Gumball Head - several examples like that. But I'm kind of down on Porters lately. To me I can only drink one, maybe two - so why not just go with a nice Imperial Stout. Give me a Founders Imperial or Ten Fidy instead. Better mouthfeel, taste, and buzz. Porters are the "Light" version of a good stout, and I drink craft because I'm not into the "Light" beer thing. Maybe I'm weird.
As many different ones as I have tried I just can't make myself like the Sours.
Hate sours, not a big fan of barley wines, can live without ambers/reds
Most sours, smoked beers and session IPA's.
Lagers, Ambers & Brown Ales
black ipas or lagers. jsut cant seem to get into them. maybe i havent sampled enough yet but after a couple dozen you would think id find one i enjoyed.
Not a fan of wheat beers..
Scotch ales for sure.
I prefer malty beers. But I just cannot get through even 3 ounces of a smoked beer. This encompasses styles I should like, if not for that they are smoked. Occasionally, I get stuck with one (because there are not style descriptions of every beer you may encounter at a festival), and I insist to myself, "Maybe this fresh example is how it really should be." ~ but, no, uh uh, the taste is just too off-putting. Somebody else can have my share.
Hefeweizens and alot of heavy wheat based beers.
Side note, isn't the whole Porter/Stout title decided by the brewer? I feel like that was a thread on here not all that long ago.
Stout is an outcrop of Porter. A "stout", historically, was a "stout porter", using the archaic sense of stout to mean robust, full-bodied, strong. Hence, a stout is just a strong porter.
However. The complicating factor is that you can't compare breweries. One brewery could brew a porter that blows another brewery's stout out of the ABV waters. I think this issue is what is responsible for a lot of confusion and misunderstanding of the difference between stout and porter - you can only say "this brewery's stout is stronger than its own porter", you cannot say "porters are up to such and such ABV then it's a stout". It is completely a subjective, brewery-level decision.
Fruit beers in general for me, pumpkin especially.
Thanks, what I was trying to get at; you articulated it much better though. How can someone say "I don't like porters" but "I like stouts."
Would you be able to answer this? I know sometimes you can use Lager yeast in a Baltic Porter and it's still a "porter." Isn't a stout always an "ale" though?
Belgian Pale Ales taste like they were aged on potpourri to me. Never had one that left me wanting a refill.
For those of you that don't like Scotch Ales/Wee Heavies, get your hands on Backwoods Bastard or Wulver, that may change your mind.
Marzans for the most part. Kind of grinds my gears the we have created a light lager, very piss poor across the board. There is probably something else I dislike but seemed to black it out as of right now.
Coffee Porters and Stouts - bc I don't like coffee
Wheat beers and many Belgians. I went through a phase where I loved tripels but now I'm not that into them anymore. Also not a huge huge fan of Flanders red ales.
Oh and every cherry stout I've had I've hated so far. I'm hopeful there is one out there I will like because I love stouts and I love cherries but the few I've had so far taste over the top artificial.
Well. Porter (and thus stout) kind of stand to one side coming from a separate historical brewing tradition. They are brewed with top-fermenting ("ale") yeast, and most places categorise them as ales, but that's a story for another day!
As for not liking porters but liking stouts - maybe they like the extra complexity of the stout flavour? Maybe they like some sugar in their coffee? Maybe they're just idiots - it's a question for the ages
Black IPAs/Cascadian Dark Ales.. The intense bitterness with the chocolate malts just don't do it for me.
Haha! I HAAAAAATE sugar in my coffee!!!
I wouldn't say I've written off any styles, but the following style's I've never been excited to try examples of and wasn't much amazed afterwards:
-regular Scotch Ales
-Brown Ales (don't mind these, they're just towards the bottom of my list)
-Red/Amber Ales (excluding Nugget Nectar)
-Kolsch (or at least what American brewer's brew as Kolsch. Is their even a world-class example of this style?)
-Belgian Strong Dark Ales (that Belgian candi-sugar is overwhelming/off-putting, but when kept in check this style can be great)
-Getting real picky with my Dubbels and Tripels, used to like many examples of these. I see a few other's are experiencing this too, interestingly. I'm a huge fan of Saison's though.
-Beers classified as Witbiers (but not its variants, like Hefeweizens... Weihenstephaner's one of my favorite beers)
-Fruit Beer would've been on here until I tried New Glarus' Raspberry Tart.
-Not a style, but I hate when American Wild Ale's have no funk or tartness to them... Brux-like beers and Brux. Terrible beer.
-Irish Dry Stout is an unimpressive style (though I don't mind Guinness)
-English malts... haven't given up yet, but English-style IPA's, ESB's and Barleywine's are mostly skippable for me.
Love every style except for black IPA's and brown ales.
There are exceptions...but...I usually don't like spice/herb beers, oktoberfests, or smoked beers
Anything and everything Belgian. Don't get, never will. also not crazy about wheat beers and do not want anything to do with fruit in my beer.
Scotch ales/Wee Heavy
Hefeweizen isn't my favorite. Smoked beers don't do much for me either.
I'll try any beer once.
Hefeweizens, Fruit beer, macro lagers.
I'm still trying to develop a liking for chili beers. I recently acquired Mexican Cake and Bomb!, so here's hoping!
I'm gonna catch huge sh$!. So be it. IPAs.
Not a Big fan of the IPA's
I like pales, IPAs, and malty ambers, but for some reason hoppy ambers just don't do it for me.
I've tried to like sours...but no go. Can't do it
