You were supposed to be too embarrassed to admit you bought it to complain about it!!! Because of the packaging!!!

From what I heard, the beer was an 'accident', or 'experiment' if you prefer. They had buckets of it and were considering dumpage. But then, a brilliant marketing wizard remembered a most evil scheme exploiting shame and ignorance. Hence Voodoo Doughnut.

I'll add one that's far and away my #2 most awful and that's 3Floyd's Brian Baroo. The bottle I got tasted of armpits and I will not try it again.
The only oyster stout I have had was excellent.

Victory smoked porter. Tasted like a bottle of liquid smoke.

bring on the hate... i don't like maudite. it just feels like a hot mess to me. i am a big fan of almost all other unibroue stuff but i gave maudite multiple second chances and it always just ended up being unbalanced and gross.

trafalgar crapt brewery is my most hated microbrewery and i love to spread the bad word about them. they are somehow in bed with the government run booze organization in canada and have always had their absurdly bad products bought up using taxpayers money. at best their stuff tastes thin, poorly made and full of off flavours, at worst (which is often) the product is infected or filled with gross trub. http://www.ratebeer.com/brewers/trafalgar-brewing/1976/

they wish they were wacky and inventive american microbrewers with talent so they make a new beer every month without ever bothering to correct or perfect anything. so typical and aggravating

Taking many Craft "Specialty Brews" out of their context can make them unappealing but doesn't truly make them horrid brews. I have brewed some beers that I wasn't a big fan of, but have friends who consider it their "favorite" and are always asking when I will brew it again. Beer can be so personal, it's this fact along with the creativity of brewing which has drawn me in to it.

but, with that said, their "back in black" black IPA is quite delicious.
I agree the hell or high-watermelon tastes like rotten melon rind, not only the worst craft beer I've had but the worst beer in general. That said I also thought back in black kind of sucked and have decided to give up on 21st amendment entirely.

Agreed. I had one at the Lobster Trap in Asheville and thought it was excellent. The idea of putting oysters into the boil made me want to vomit, but the calcium the oyster shells gave it an unique mouth feel and had no seafood flavors.

I seem to be detecting a trend here. Are there any NC brewers who have had GOOD experiences with Roth brewing? Just wondering...
It's very disappointing as all the Raleigh and North Carolina beers I have tried have been okay to excellent with the exception of Roth which is terrible. A professional brewery is supposed to have some standards when it comes to quality - their beer tastes like the first homebrews I made that had significant flaws, mostly due to poor yeast handling, fermentation temperatures, and sanitation. A lot of those flaws are easily correctable by following basic procedures.

I used to think the worst brewery in Raleigh was Boylan Bridge Brew Pub because every style of their beer tasted the same. At least you could drink those and they have a tremendous view of the downtown. The beer I had at Roth was easily the worst "craft" beer I've ever tried. I can understand one or two missing the mark, but every beer I tried was awful and full of off-flavors.

I was in Seattle earlier this year and picked up a six of Deschutes Mirror Pond Pale Ale. I had heard good things about it but for the life of me I couldn't finish more than a bottle and a half. I gave the other four away and dumped half of one. It gave me the most sickening feeling in my gut when I drank it. I hope it was a bad batch or old.

Dude that's hilarious I've never seen such across the board terrible ratings for a brewery before. Man I'm glad I've never tried any of that stuff.

I'll second both of these.

Tried Sierra Nevada's Imperial Pilsner from their Boot Camp series. It wasn't drain pour bad but it was not good.
