Yep,to each their own...that's the beauty of this craft.  I did try a rauchbier this weekend, and I just couldn't shake the overwhelming bacon taste. I think we all have different thresholds for pungent favors and smells. I seem to be a touch sensitive to them. I can enjoy an IPA, but push the extremes on them and I'm out. It's just to much for me.
A lot of these beers I'm interested in tasting, but a 2 oz pour at a beer fest is all I need. I can't even finish a pint of Rauchbier, it's just too much for me. Heck, even Bourbon County Stout is just too much for me. They're not necessarily bad beers, but they're definitely not something I'd want to be stuck with 5 gallons of.
