You know, there have been a lot of beer to come through this thread over the months... Most of them are like milk and honey compared to Steel Reserve. That is the absolute worst tasting swill on the market, bar none.

I've never had steel reserve, but I doubt it, or any other beer in this thread is as bad as Sam Adams Triple Bock. The only way anyone could post any other beer as being the worst is if they haven't had SA Triple Bock. It seriously tastes like a mixture of overly burnt sugar caramelized on a piece of wet cardboard that was used as a dog bed and the dogs laying on it were slathered with soy sauce daily. When this black, still liquid touches your tongue it wraps around it and coats it like some sort of nasty oil. The flavor doesn't go away until alot of scrubbing your tongue and mouth. It is the worst excuse for beer I've ever had the displeasure of putting in my mouth. I would drink any other beer over that stuff any day.

Lol! I would almost seek it out after a description like that.

Worst one I've had today: Leinenkugel's Creamy Dark. $5 a 6 pack? I shoulda known. Still, it's worth about $5 a six pack, except I'd rather not drink the other 5. It's just very watery and it doesn't call me back. Luckily I have a Sierra Nevada porter to erase the horrible void.

I'm with you on the triple bock- i split a case with a buddy in 94. we paid 120 bucks for it, and that was the most i could ever imagine paying for beer back then. we drank bottles on and off over the years, and not a one has improved with age- in fact many of the corks dried out and rotted in the bottles- they probably should have been stored on their sides, contrary to sam adam's advice on the side of the bottles. I drank my last one a couple years back and it still sucked. My buddy has 5 bottles left- he is still clinging to the belief that we made a worthy investment and that all those bottles need is a few more years under them.

Thankfully, I didn't pay for my sample of Triple Bock - someone had a bottle at a Utopias brewfest. Completely agree about how horrible it was. A little more "oyster sauce" than "soy sauce," but completely undrinkable. Just pushed the yeast too hard, it seems - but it's hard for me to imagine that the beer would have been all that good even if it was "clean." Probably tied with that "Golden Shower" from Dogfish Head, though - the DFH beer was absolutely vile as well.

EDIT: I bet the Triple Bock would make one helluva marinade, maybe for some beef for a quick stir-fry... but that would be one might expensive marinade!

Is there already a thread for cheap or unassuming beers that we enjoy far more than we are expecting?
