Step back, and put the beer down carefully. You're palate is ruined and as a result unable to taste good beer.

there were a few years (maybe 07-09?) where they were putrid/infected after about 6 months.  maybe they didn't have the problem yet in 06.

Early on I thought they thinned out a ton.  I haven't tried cellaring any since then.

Dumped a couple O'so Lupulin Maximus recently. *disclaimer, not cellared... just arrived at local shop

Harsh astringency and solventy off flavors, no hop aroma. The 3rd bottle the next day wasn't really as bad, but i'm thinking there's some possible contamination from the hop cones they put in the bottles. It's too inconsistent for me to pick up again... this is maybe the 3rd time i've had off/old bottles. gonna stick with Hop Whoopin from now on, love that stuff.

There was a more recent bottling that had carbonated, not sure on the vintage though.

Doesjel 2006 in 750ml is mostly flat, though some bottles carbed up.  I've had both, and I love both.
Doesjel 2006 in 375ml is all mostly flat and I think there's a cork issue because they're oxidized as all hell.
Doesjel 2010 in 375ml bottles is as good as the 2006 in 750ml bottles. Time will tell with that one.

Please send all Doesjel for me if not satisfied.  :thumbup:

Doesjel is a "lazy" gueuze (very slow to carb, if at all) like Loerik. (Maybe not enough sugars in the young lambic to produce CO2?)

:( Guess i'd better open it and find out. Got as an extra in trade many years ago, wanted to see if some time benefitted it.

Westbrook Gose. Canned recently. If you took a bowl of seawater and had a baby puke in it, I imagine it would taste better then this. 2 gagging sips and down the drain the rest of it went. I'm still stuck with 4 cans of a sixer that I'll trade to some unsuspecting sap someone who wants it.

I thought it was a pretty great :shrug: Definitely more sour/acidic than most though. Again, I think this is one of those cases where threshold/tolerance for acidity/acetobacter (vinegar sourness) definitely plays into it. I'd love to get more, but i'm only doing trades in person.

Ick.

I think I've mentioned it elsewhere since the Taste, but I was worried that Capital's quality would decline once Kirby left. After a DMS-laden IPA at their place on State Street, a barely mediocre 12-pack of Supper Club (which lacked the clean, well-defined malt it once had), and now your report, I fear for the worst. I almost don't wanna try any recent Blond Doppelbock, Maibock, or Winter Skal; I'd hate to mess with my good memories of those.

Good point, I wondered the same thing... sad if they all went downhill. I was looking at reviews for any similar reports, and I don't think the Okto was ever their strong suit. Would be willing to give the above favorites a try for old times sake.

I disagree with this. Capital Oktoberfest used to be pretty much the only domestic Oktoberfest I found "tolerable".

2013 Sam Adams Oktoberfest = EH+

2013 Tyranena Gemütlichkeit Oktoberfest = EH+ / G

2013 Summit Oktoberfest = FS+ / EH-

2013 O'So O-toberfest = FS- (drainpour)

2013 Ayinger Oktoberfest = FG+

Why do we even bother with the domestic crap?

No idea.

They got a fresh 30L keg of Ayinger Oktoberfest at The Landmark so I've been camped out with no intention of leaving.

Ever.

Well, at least until this keg runs out (then I hear Einbecker Mai-UrBock is going ON).  :thumbup:

They got a fresh 30L keg of Ayinger Oktoberfest at The Landmark so I've been camped out with no intention of leaving.

Ever.

Well, at least until this keg runs out (then I hear Einbecker Mai-UrBock is going ON).  :thumbup:
Solid beer, one of the first German beers I remember getting into.
Their N/A on the other hand :yuck: Dunno what I was thinking...

Drainpoured my last three bottles of Uintas Anniversary Barleywine last night.

Thought it might get better with age; nope, it only got worse.

Sickening.  :puke:

Just opened a 2010 Bourbon County Stout, and this isn't very good either.   :thumbdown:
Step back, and put the beer down carefully. You're palate is ruined and as a result unable to taste good beer.

 :no:  This 2010 is almost completely flat and super sweet

MAYBE YOU'D PREFER A BRIDGE OUT STOUT INSTEAD?

to a flat bottle of syrup?  yes


recently had an 09-present BCS vertical and the 2010 was the best.  09(oxidized) or 2015 the worst

4 month old Urban Chestnut Zwickel is pretty craptastic for some reason.

Picked it up from a new store that hasn't been open 4 months... wonder if it sat around in August before they opened.
