Southern Tier 2Xmas, "brewed in the style of swedish glogg." I make glogg every few years and love ST so I couldn't wait to try it. Haven't gotten past the third swig yet. Tastes great but more than a taste is unbearable. WAY too heavily spiced.

Dogfish Head 120 Min.
New Belgium La Folie (and all New Belgium for that matter, but this one in particular).
Pliny The Elder (it was very good, but not up to the hype).
21A Brew Free Or Die IPA (I haven't been enthralled by any of their beers, but this one I thought particularly bad)
Victory Golden Monkey (I've loved everything else I've had from them, this one tasted like rocket fuel)
Dogfish Head Festina Peche. I was expecting something remotely tart. I got an uninspired fruit American Wheat.
Sam Adams Black and Brew. I find Sam Adams hit or miss to begin with, but folks said this one was good. I thought it tasted awful.
Unibroue Ephemere Apple. Lots of aroma. Zero flavor. I've loved (or at least really liked) all their other beers. This was just bad.

I'd have to say Arrogant Bastard, and most everything by Stone. Don't really understand the hype, not impressed by their beers. But I do like their business model.

You'd probably like the 12.21.12. I'm not a huge stone fan either and since I hate Chinook hops I'm not crazy about AB or DB but I did really enjoy that beer.

I will have to give it a try. I'm always down to try any beer at least once. I don't mind chinooks, but prefer simcoe. I'm mainly a Rogue and Deschutes fan.

Gritty's Pumpkinhead Ale

Costs like 17.99 for 12 pack in the supermarket. Tastes like pumpkin vomit. Gave it away.
