Green Flash Barleywine. I'd rather drink cologne from one of those goofy racecar bottles.

When I first tried Odell's beers, i swore them off as bad brewers. Two of their beers (I had tried Levity and Isolation) were bad so I wasn't going back.

Then I started hearing about how some of my friends loved them...then I started hearing good things in the beer community. I gave them another shot... And I am glad I did because they do have some great beers. I just picked two of the maybe four beers they make that I dont like so I had a bad first impression.

Sam Adams has some really good ones but also some really bad ones. Old fezziwig, and chocolate bock are horrible. (From the winter sampler) I also don't care for most of the southern tier brews.. It seems like they dump a truck load of lactose in everyone of them.

+1 to the chocolate bock, its rather gross and for lack of better phrasing seems fake somehow. but I do like old fezziwig.

Your first clue should have been maple . No way should this ever be in a beer or anything else I am eating or drinking . Next Bacon . Bacon ? WTF ? Yuk . Was you planning on frying this up and having it with eggs and pancakes ?

Let me sum this up for everyone who thinks about drinking a beer with maple , bacon , cod , beef, rat droppings or other non beer items in it ....YUK YUK YUK YUK YUK ! Gag me with a spoon , YUK.

Rock Art's Midnight smoked porter is just horrendous. Tasted like sooty water. No body, no malt, no hops, no roast, just thin, dirty smoke. Pawned one off on a friend who I've watched chug an acetobacteria-infected beer with no hesitation, and even he couldn't finish it. Rock Art's brews are normally pretty good, but that smoked porter is drain material.

I didnt like the sam adams chocolate bock either, and it was the beer I was most excited about in the sampler. Too sweet and artificial, It tasted like tootise roll.

And I do like Sam Adams. Especially their Octoberfest and that hazel nut brown.

Taproom 21. Tasted like drinking raw sugar. One of only a couple of beers I've actually dumped a few bottles down the drain.
