If your cellar is 160C, you've got a fire which tends to get rid of the
beer even faster than the most hardened drinker.

Given the frothy horsepiss found in most pubs, not being able to taste
it is an advantage. As to why buy it in the first place, well it's
probably that inane thing called fashion.

Alternatively for the more adventurous you can try picking a beer that
seems like it's been named after a particularly viscious hangover (Old
Thumper, Rumblegut, etc.). You might not get a bitter, but you'll have a
better chance of a good drink than you might think.
