+1 I like the 75 much more than the 60 or 90 individually.

I was infatuated with two of the big DFH beers (the 120, World Wide Stout) when I first tasted them. Then I began to realize that they just tasted too heavy and waaaaay too sweet. Even slowly sipping these beers is a bit much - but I've never aged mine to any appreciable degree.

Even my bottle shop owner said he was very disappointed with DFH120, he only sells it cause people want it. $10 for a 12 oz beer that everyone that I have talked to thinks is very disappointing makes me have no desire to even try it.

I am with you all, way too sweet. I haven't had an aged one, but then again, I couldn't sit on a beer for 3 years.

The first 120 I had was three years old, and awesome. I tried a newer one and hated it.

I haven't had the 120 but have tried 60 (nothing special) and the DFH india brown ale... that one is well hard to describe. The first bottle I took a drink and spit it out, it actually bit me! By the time I got to the last bottle of the six in about 4 weeks I had grown accustomed to it. Very harsh caramelization( fought the hops for bitterness) didn't seem well balanced and made me think the company should have been called Dead Fish Head. I would still like to try some of their other beers simply due to the apparent appeal it has for many beer snobs.

That's my go to beer at the alehouse. Order yourself a buffalo chicken sandwich (not on the menu) and a 75 and you've got yourself a meal!

I've never had the 120 (only the 60 and 90), but the majority of things I've heard haven't been positive.

I'm of the opinion that a commercial beer shouldn't need aging in order to be drinkable. If aging makes it better, that's great. But you should be able to drink it shortly after you buy it without gagging. Just my opinion ....

I haven't had the 120 either, too pricy, but DFA have some good stuff, I've been meaning to do a twist on their Mitis Touch, which is a very interesting experience if you haven't had one.
