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.

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.

Tallboy from QT.
Pours a nice golden color with a lot of tiny fizzy carbonation bubbles rushing to the top and a medium white head. Aroma is corn, malt, and sweet fruits. Flavor is corn, unfermented sugars, fruit, quite a bit of alcohol, gives a nice warming effect followed by a tapered off garbage and fruity sweetness that lingers on the palate. If Miller light is the Champagne of beers then this is the Crack Cocaine of beers. Good for a quick pick me up, but you’re gonna be sorry in the morning.

I can’t possibly think of anything more evil to drink for my Six hundred Sixty Sixth rating.
Pours a very pale golden with tons of little bubbles and a head that starts of big but seems to be racing to go away. Aromas of corn, gasoline, odd grains, a bit of fruit, a bit of alcohol.... truly complex in all the wrong ways. Flavors of Corn, chardonnay, vegetables, alcohol, odd cereal sweetness. I don’t know how but the flavors balance each other fairly well, with the exception of the alcohol, which becomes more and more present as you drink this.
Palate is thin and burning with alcohol.
This is horrid, but I’ve had worse.
But who cares what I have to say, SchlitzWilkos said it best when he said
“its really strong and will have you yelling at people and running all over the place pooping in your pants, fecal matter everywhere. Throwing it like monkeys- feces in everyones face, even your own. My friend accidently ate poop from the ground when he was off that CAmo.”

This very harsh brew gets tastier as one drinks more of it. It has a strong alcohol smell and a golden appearance with a tolerable head. The flavor is strongly alcoholic and harsh. Camo Black Ice is stinging in the mouth and tough to take at first. However, by the time I was about half way through the 24 oz. can (poured in a pint glass), I began to enjoy it. I prefer milder beers for daily drinking, but this would be something to have from time to time. I felt woozy for about three to four hours after drinking this. It’s rough.

Tastes kinda raunchy, but grows on you after a while. It gets you super fucked up though.

The trick for this beer is to put it in the freezer, and the glass you will be drinking it out of in the freezer as well, for half an hour before consuming it. Ice cold, it goes down remarkably smooth, especially by the second glass, when the warm embrace starts radiating from your core outwards to the extremities. Another alternative is to squeeze the juice of one half an orange and add it to this beer for a unique taste treat. It’s easy to finish a 24 oz of this straight out of the freezer, then sit back, turn the tv on, and wait for the nice warm wave and good feelings to wash over you like a blissful tidal wave, pushing stressors and anxieties to the outer reaches of your consciousness. Enjoy. I wouldn’t ever drink more than one in a sitting, however, as intestinal distress can result the following morning. Also, if you have one of these in the evening, a good idea is to drink a whole bottled water beforehand, take a b-complex vitamin pill, and you will have zero hangover in the morning. Also it’s a good idea to drink several cups strong black coffee the morning after for its protective effect on the liver (google this if you are skeptical). Salud and may the drink bring you many years of health and vitality...

Camo, good times with this beer(?). The idea of even trying to rate camo in a serious manner is beyond me, I mean it packs the punch of over four regular beers, and I get them for $1.25.
That being said, Camo is going to taste like complete garbage (sometimes worse than others, taste varies from can to can). Sometimes it tastes like a skunked Red Dog with some shots of dirty whiskey mixed in, maybe even wine, sometimes it tastes like half Busch half vodka. I think they just mix whatever is leftover from other companies and sell it for cheap. Sometimes I have to hold my nose to get it down without barfing.
This beer is for the toothless guy who stands outside the liquor store saying, "Hey man, got any change so I can get one of them BIG beers?" Absolutely awful, but for what it is, Camo does it perfectly.
You’ll be skatin’ on Black Ice and getting put in handcuffs in no time! and for less than 5 bucks!

Seriously now. Let’s everyone dismount their high horses and evaluate this objectively. No one should be surprised that this malt liquor: dressed in a black camo pattern and adorned with 5 X’s, is the most vile, putrid, and unholy things to ever assault the senses. However, for those who refuse to cower against such atrocities and love pushing the boundaries reckless and irresponsible consumption, The City Brewery has graced you with Camo Black Ice. For a true test of the human spirit, I suggest making soju (Korean piss vodka) bombs with camo black ice. Only after this unconscionable lack of sanity can you truly claim you’ve swung on the spiral of our divinity and still are a human.
