A few of dogfishes,after trying so many awesome beers and coming back to the 60 and 90 min after a year,seemed the bar had been raised dramaticly with ipa's, that and Pangea just wasnt anything i expected.Sam Adams doesnt fail to let me down often, although i liked the small batch series somewhat but the saltiness threw me off also on those.

I have tried so many varieties and just am constantly dissapointed... really would so much rather drink something else of the same style...

Maybe I'll age the next DFH120. I drank it fresh and it was decent. Pretty good considering the 18%abv, but definitely not worth the hefty price tag IMO.

DFH Chateau Jihau and Black and Blue. Cigar City Jai Alai.

Conversly, the Cigar City Humidor Series was a surprise -- great beer.

For me, it was Samichlaus Bier. It was hyped; the strongest lager in the world, only brewed once a year, et cetera. I was not impressed and should have been leery of the guy who was so willing to give me his last bottle.

I've heard so much praise for Westvleteren 12, there is almost no way it can live up to the hype. Unless it truly is the ambrosia of the beer gods.

I would not say Ambrosia. But, I would buy another. In fact, I'd buy any of the Westy series again.

A few weeks ago, I had my first Guinness Stout. It was also my LAST. My first batch of "Deception Cream Stout" had more flavor, body and mouth feel than the Guinness I drank. Perhaps a Guinness Stout draught would have been better. Oh, well.
