I have to agree with the Voodoo Maple Bacon. I was really looking forward to it, but I could only stomach a few drinks before it was too much. I got no bacon or maple flavors at all...only smokey old shoes. Before that one it was O'Fallon Cherry Chocolate Stout. Tasted like someone just poured a crap ton of cherry and chocolate syrup into the bottle, capped it and put it on the shelf.

I gotta admit I love reading this thread. Just goes to prove how different everyone perceives some of these beers. While I would say the vast majority of the posts I agree with, there area a few I really like. No wonder some of these micro brews can survive making some so-so beer. Some like it...some don't.

Sam Adams Bonfire is straight nasty. Got it in a sampler and it is terrible.

Legend Brewing in Richmond had a Smokey Chocolate Stout. Tasted like melted Hershey kisses and liquid smoke. Just awful.

Funny thing is I like Smokey beers (Stone's for instance) but these two are ones off the top of my head just thinking were terrible.

I vaguely remember being drunk off my a$$ in college (just once, honest Mom!) and a distributor came in and said he had just lined up a new brewery and he wanted to buy everyone a drink. They rolled in a keg and hooked it up to one of the taps and started handing them out. *Lots* of people didn't finish them, and this was in a college bar around 10PM. So you *know* that stuff was bad.

Worst one I can remember was Dixie Blackened Voodoo. Tasted like a burnt shoe with a hint of old sweatsock, and no body whatsoever. Bought a whole case of it (I'm in PA) and I think I still had 4-5 bottles sitting on a shelf when I moved over a year later.

Was very disappointed with Rogue Dead Guy Ale too, although I'm willing to give it another try sometime. Had it when I lived in Portland, so I don't think it was an issue with travel or storage.

Shiner Smokehaus won Worst Beer at a swill contest I was involved in a few years ago.

I was only given a few ounces but I couldn't even finish that.
