I make one every year for Independence Day. It is difficult to make properly and it has made me a better brewer.

Any serious attempt at Barleywine or Old Ale. That is to say... I'm fine with "lighter" versions of these, but once you pass 10% alc., my interest wanes quickly. I have no desire to drink, say, a 16% barleywine.

Same goes for top-end Doppelbock and similar. I don't mind a 7% Doppel, but a 11-12% is just unnecessary, I would rather drink six tasty beers with low alcohol content, than drink one beer with the alcohol of a six-pack.

Aside from that? Very little comes to mind. I will brew pretty much anything just to try it out. I don't care if it's sour, weird, or otherwise.

Anything French or Belgian with the possible one exception of Bier De Garde.

Amber ale... I just don't dig ambers.

All this hating of light lagers in this thread makes me want to re-brew my American light lager.

American Light beer! I can get my water free from the tap without any effort than you very much!
Sour ales. I've started to gain an appreciation for sour ales recently. I like to have them when I go out on a occasion. But I can't imagine ever wanting 5 gallons of it not to mention the time it takes to make one.
It's unlikely I'd ever brew any heavily spiced beers again. I like to have one once in a while, but again the volume is too much and I get sick of it. I use to brew a chocolate mint stout which I liked. But I got sick of it after a few bottles.
Besides that, I can't think of anything I wouldn't try brewing.
