    I enjoyed the donut maple bacon, however I have a bomber of the rouge voodoo pretzel raspberry chocolate ale in my fridge,and I am hesitant to try it.

    I must have been 12 at my uncles, he gave me it to try. I secretly dumped it out on the ground near the campfire while pretending to drink it. Wanted to fit in with the adults lol.

    sam adams winter lager. tasted like seltzer with a dash of pumpkin spice, except, that actually sounds more appealing then the beer I tasted. sorry to say it but pumking also went down the drain.

    really? I thought storm king was on the lower side of the intensity spectrum, compared to other stouts.

    unfortunately or not, we are the minority in that regard, my friend, not him. I don't get it either.

    Jester King's Commercial Suicide. Everything else they make is great, but that one tasted like an ashtray - no thanks.

    Booooo! Most wrong post on this whole thread^

    @Droogins - never mind that guy, it's definitely one of the best Pils around.

    Prima Pils is the best domestic Pils I've had, pretty boring style on all fronts if you ask me (which you didn't, haha)

    Hold on a second- are you and Rstang19 part of a series of clones or something? If that's the case, then no wonder- I bet most things would seem boring to you guys.:wink:

    Agreed on the first part, though :grinning:

    Well, if he's new to the site then I shouldn't have been so unwelcoming, so I'll apologize to @Rstang19 for my tone in that post.

    But, it's just so difficult for lagers to get much respect around here (and there are plenty of poorly made ones around which doesn't help matters), that we don't need the best ones getting badmouthed as well.

    >Ruckus Brewing Hoptimus Prime...great name, terrible beer (and I've had it from a bottle and on draught).
    >Stone 2010 Double Bastard (aged under proper conditions) and consumed roughly 3 years later...ages nothing like Old Guardian (not to mention that Stone ranks as one of my Top 10 breweries)
    >Weyerbacher Double Simcoe past its prime (over six months old) wonder it was on sale! (not to mention that Weyerbacher ranks as another one of my Top 10 breweries)
    >Sierra 2013/14 Celebration Ale...the 2012/13 batch bordered on being astringent, but held up...this year's batch was just OFF.
    ...I could think of others, but this is a pretty immediate and impressionable list.

    No worries @tangorad just a difference of opinion, no offense taken. I should of mentioned that i'm not the biggest fan of pilsners to begin with. I was not trying to insinuate that it was a drain pour (although if probably came off that way). It is just an average beer in my opinion.

    Only drain poured BMC beers once they got warm and undrinkable. Ever since I've gotten into craft beers I've had the good fortune to never have had a skunky/flat/infected brew that I've had to drain pour and I sure as hell haven't drain poured a good one.

    I've had ones that at the time were too much for me, but I powered through them. For instance in my early craft beer days, I tried Old Rasputin at a local craft pub, I was completely out of my element as I was totally unaware of what a Russian Imperial Stout was, but I sipped it until I finished it. Refuse to waste a craft beer, unless I ever have the misfortune to run into a infected brew.

    a De Molen beer. Was supposed to taste like whiskey but tasted like rust.

    Some memorable drain-pours:

    Mango Magnifico
    Habanero Sculpin
    Oude Gueuze Tilquin a l'Ancienne

    Confession: I drain-poured the last few ounces of my 2014 Hunahpu. Great beer, just a little too heavy on the cinnamon. Became unbearable towards the end.

    I'm a year and a half, maybe more, into this whole hobby, and I've always wondered how in the hell I'd ever come across something I "just couldn't finish". It happened over Super Bowl Sunday. Samuel Smith's Organic Chocolate Stout. I don't know how, I just could not enjoy that beer. Finished 2/3 and had to rid of the rest (maybe that isn't a true drain pour, drinking most of it versus having only a few drinks and discarding it).

    Brooklyn's Monster- the Barley Wine. Tasted like metal and band aids

    That Dog Fish chai beer, not even worth looking up, was the only other beer that I drain poured.

    So, I have had 2 in all my years of drinking beer. I can still taste the Monster when I think of it. So bad

    Expecting to be bad: Wild Blue. Shouldn't even be called beer.

    Expecting to like: Left Hand Milk Stout

    DFH Theobroma...opened it with three friends and nobody finished their glass. Too much going on, just didn't mesh well with the chocolate and chilies. Can't believe the ratings on here

    I think I’ve only poured out one beer- It was Lost Rhino 2200lb of sin Barley wine, maybe I’m not a fan of barley wines. Even if I don’t like a beer I try to finish everything and hopefully change my mind about it.

    Sweet Baby Jesus had to be "modified" with 50% home made Mead to be drinkable. Almost a drain pour.

    It was either Souther Tier Creme Brûlée or Sixpoint Apollo. Can't remember which but both were early on in my craft beer interest.

    I honestly thought I would never drain pour a beer until today. I opened up a Southern Tier Farmers's Tan thinking it'd be a good way to start out a rather long day of wedding festivities and was significantly underwhelmed. I typically try to do at least some minimal research before purchasing a beer and this one definitely bit me in the ass.
