0.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
A: The pour is crystal clear and very, very pale yellow in color. The head is initially white and fluffy, but disappears almost as quickly as it arrived.
S: The nose is dominated by a sweet, airy rice aroma. There’s a touch of grain sweetness and a fair amount of skunk.
T: I didn’t think the flavor could get much worse than the nose, but somehow, it did. This one is all rice, corn, and booze. Just awful.
M: Very, very light body. The carbonation is fairly high, but it doesn’t do much to help out the watery beer.
D: One of the most godawful things I’ve put in my mouth. Thanks Jacob and Jer for sharing this one...very generous.

Thanks? IBrew2or3 for the share. Pours clear gold with a small, white head. Nose is acetone, corn, lager, booze, and adjuncts. Flavor is similar with lingering sugary junkyard finish. Wow.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
This 24oz aluminum beauty is courtesy of bvc. The can pours clear pure gold with white head. The aroma has robust notes of apples, apricots, plums, raisins, corn juice and white caro syrup. The taste is very sweet, dear lord, unjustifiably sweet. I get slick sugary apple cider, sweet corn, apricots, pears and some straight up esteriness. I can’t drink more than an ounce or two without some food with it to temper the sweetness.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
It is what it is. Want to get a good buzz for $1.50? Get a can of black ice. I only drink this stuff when I am broke and at a 7-11. It is foul in every way imaginable. Notes of rotting fruit and corn are apparent and the taste is of car tire and stale grape candy. I am actually drinking this right now, and though it is about as tasty as a bottle of cheap wine it does what it should. A great novelty item and if you’re a broke alcoholic and the liquor store is closed go for it. It’ll let you down but you’ll be making calls to your ex girlfriend after the first half is gone.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Can. This one reminded me of that crappy rhine wine my aunt use to drink. Yellow body with a malt sweetener that even the carbination bubbles were lazy in floating arround in glass. Sweet and wheat grains for lavor with some nasty smelling alccohol grain on finish. Sweetener lingers on palate even 40oz of water can’t make it go away. Should of had a mr. Uck sticker on it.

Worse than Evil Eye. Worse than fermented fruit. This will have you on your ass and let me tell you this: Beware of Black Ice. Now, the buzz can be softened by water and food. I did not enjoy this one single bit.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
picked up this gem on 8/2/2009...
clear gold pour with a very short lived spritzy white head.
smells like really crappy ’white’ wine... you know the stuff. there are other notes of grape juice, flowers, hootch, weird graininess and rice starch.
the ice brewing really shines in the ’extra smooth taste’... dear god, no it doesn’t. it tastes like really muddy, bottom of the barrel, generic sake left outside to turn rancid... grapes, apple juice, flowers... blindingly hot and syrupy in the mouth and gut.
