It's easy to pick on dark beers because generally darker beers are stronger in malt-associated flavors. I suppose many people who tell me they don't like "dark beers" would also not care for an English barleywine... but who could know for sure?
And this! times 2 for the "use the right words!" part. A liquor store is exactly the place to learn about these things. Or heck, just look at what you can learn from a simple Google search.
