She's made it all the way now...just tried a 70 IBU IPA I made recently and I was shocked when she loved it. It's a matter of conditioning. Now she HATES BMC with a passion, says it has zero flavor.
When I met my wife almost fifteen years ago she wasn't into beer or coffee that was even remotely dark or strong. Now she drinks her coffee black and likes her beers with some serious kick to them.
Last night she took it upon herself to try a Trappist experiment I did that came out much darker than I had intended. I liked it but I knew that it was the kind of flavor that others likely wouldn't. Her response...."That's excellent!"
It takes time.
