Ugh I forgot about that one. Thankfully it's no longer in the Winter Mix packs. It's swill.

Southern Tier 2XMAS - tasted like liquified fermented fruitcake racked on a vomit yeast cake and bottled with spit.

Hopslayer - Wild Onion Brewery

Whatever hops they use gives off a strong garlic or onion aroma and taste. It's like it's there and you know it, but it fades quick and makes you keep drinking just to find out if it really is garlic or just your senses playing games with you.

Dog Fish Head - 60 and 90 minute. They were bottled in december 2012 and I drank them in early january - both were boring and lifeless - no hop aroma or bitterness - they just tasted like higher alcohol boring pale ales. so disappointing.

DF 60 is one of my favorite beers at the moment. But i'm just getting into IPA's, thats why I can enjoy it. Low IBU's and pale ale flavor/aroma.

Rougues Voodoo Donut! Tastes like a burnt eraser! Absolutely disgusting! I forced it down only because of the price i paid for the bottle. What a waste of money

Petrus Aged Red. Had it for the first time the other day. It's not bad per se, but a brewery of their quality should not be putting out a beer that tastes like Mort Subite's or Timmermans's Kriek. I was hoping for something a bit more...

Which Voodoo Dounut? I haven't tired either, but I heard the first one just had too much liquid smoke type flavor.
