I'm a huge craft beer fan, and I'm particularly fond of American micro brews. Sometimes though, I think they are a little too "explosive". I had the Founder's Breakfast Stout a few weeks ago, and I have to say, I didn't think it lived up to the hype. It was better than almost anything out there, but to me, it was a little bit overdone on some of the flavors (way too much espresso, almost burnt). Westvleteren 8 also comes to mind (really good, but if I was blindfolded, would I have thought it was the top 20 in the world?).
Anyway, does anyone else feel that way about some highly rated beers?
