2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Huge 40 oz @ Hotel. Clear golden colored beer with a soapy white head. Not very good retention. Grape drink, booze, and corn syrup nose. Yum... Lots of cereal grain and corn flakes. Flavor is pretty sweet and is obviously high boost. Grape juice, corn, and a bit of soap. Light apple on the tongue, too. Pretty syrupy mouthfeel. Not a malt liquor I’d revisit.

Avoèye la grosse Black Bull toé. (Silver Creek Brewing?) Donnons-y une chance, surtout que je n’ai plus de nouveauté à mettre sous la dent. Donc, elle est dorée et une mousse soyeuse s’accroche au verre en se résorbant. Des arômes fruités et maltés en émanent. Au travers, des effluves qui semblent être de miel, s’immiscent, mais ensuite, on est incapable de les percevoir à nouveau. C’est plutôt sucré en bouche. Des saveurs de poivre éventé arrivent avant que le monstre alcoolisé se fasse goûter et nous fait sortir des vapeurs d’alcool par les narines. Le gosier chauffe à chaque gorgée et on a le cervelet bien amoché. 3 piastres pour presque 1 litre! Ça fait pas cher la brosse. (1304-221014)

UPDATED: JUN 15, 2013 Oh yaaa babee! In fact, I had avoided this during my days in Montréal since there were so many other favourable brews to sample there, and once on a snowey day of "janvier" I had found an emptied vessel of this amongst the snow-bound playgrounds of "le plateau" en Montréal.... but somehow, years later, I’m a few thousand kilometres away in Yellowknife and I find this gargantuan alcoholic monster at the local liquor store. These are simply rare expériences few and far between to be experienced! So, it pours into a hotel waterglass and has a surprisingly reliable bleach-white head and golden body. The aroma is cider. Pure cider - indeed it’s probably a mix of fusel alcohol, but it’s in fact a great cider aroma and if one was not expecting anything else, Monsieur Bull de noir would deliver in the cider department. The flavour - oh wow. It’s tinniness with this horrible aftertaste of tin and water. How’mever, as far as a brew like this goes, it’s pretty darned good - the flavour is unintrusive, even appetizing with the cider notes, and it goes down easy. It gets several extra points for its lack of total awfulness and I’d dare say that if one is among the streets of Montréal with a few bucks in their hand hoping to get wasted, this would be a solid choice. For connoissseurs indeed it is not, but this will get you f****ed up proper without much fuss. And for that, I commend their brewers. In not too many words.

Black bull from black iPa on black malt licka Friday! Gold pour with a small white head. Boozy malts and grapes. Lots of sweet kiro syrup. Grainy. A bit of sweet butter and corn bread. Light finish, medium carbontation. Drinks more like an 8% 7.5/10 swillz.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
1.18L clear bottle with screw off cap. Bright yellow colour, surprisingly large white head with a bunch of lacing, when it settles it still retains a nice foamy layer. Nose has a bit of orange, rough grains, cardboard, some fusel notes, not as harsh as I was expecting. Taste is sweet, again orangey, lots of harsh grains. Dryish finish, papery, some grain, lingering alcohol. Body is medium, even carbonation. Definately loses it’s charm as it warms, this is to be consumed as cold as you can make it. A total mess overall, but honestly I’ve had way worse than this, in the style and otherwise. A shaker and a half of this brew went down pretty easy, but I might just have a drinking problem.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
1.18L bottle pours a pale golden color with a small white head that leaves no lacing. Aroma is skunk and grassy hops. Taste is skunky with a light malty sweetness and terrible hop bitterness. One of the worst beers ever made imho.

0.8 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Beer #5 in the 40oz. head to head taste off. it sucks and that’s all you got to know but I guess here are some reasons it sucks. This was the same as the other four only worse (corn, rice, sweet, chemical) it was way more harsh and burnt the throat on the way down. You get what you pay for, how is it even possible for this to be this cheap bottled water cost more and why do all these shyt beers come from Wisconsin.

Was a good all around malt liquor but will always remind me of my 1/2 brother, he bought a case of 40’s and was over gone, slammed the 40 to the ground on concrete and didn’t let go...blood every where...sadly this beer is gone..a victim of Ontario law

1.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
1.18l bottle. Strong malty aroma. Pours with a light golden hue and an average white head. Incredibly strong and sickly gasoline like flavour, quite thick with a horrible finish. Drain pour material.
