Try it in a can once. I hated it in bottle,having it at home poured from a can was a better experience,at least for me.

See that's funny because I think Rogue makes some funky beers. A like some of them, but others are just wack. They should be brought up on criminal charges for the Voodoo Doughnut.

Yes agreed. I haven't tried the Voodoo Doughnut beer, and don't have to, to know its probably gross. But I love their Dead Guy, and Hazelnut Nectar. I think my all time favorite beer is their Mogul Madness.

Dead Guy is excellent. I haven't been able to try those others you mentioned. I've seen the hazelnut nectar, I'll have to grab it next time. I've been wanting to try the double dead guy.

Ahhh forgot about this one. Had seen the 12.12.12 online and finally found it in the local packy, what a bummer. Great idea but the roasted pepper flavor just didn't sit well with me. I can see how someone else might be totally about it but it's not my bag.

Not sure where you're from but you usually can't Mogul Madness at the store. Lately Ive only been able to find it at Rogues Brewery. There might be some bottle shops that carry it. It's an awesome winter ale that I think rivals Deschutes Jubelale.

Any Sam Adams beer. I don't like their use of hops. I have tried their seasonals and can't find one that I would want to have.

Stella in the green bottles always tastes skunky to me.

Imports don't have the same taste that they had near the brewery. I refuse to drink beer imported from Europe because it is either old or improperly stored and transported.

No not the Vertical Epic, the Enjoy By IPA. I had the 11.11.11 Vertical Epic, the Anaheim chili one and I agree that it was nasty. I had to almost put a clothespin on my nose to choke it down. This is the one:

I haven't had the 11-11-11 yet (got a bottle aging), but I haven't been able to enjoy a single chili beer yet. Something about the mouthfeel combined with the heat just doesn't sit well with me (comes off too oily...or something). Which is weird, considering I could (and usually do) eat spicy food every day.
