As a daddy-to-be and a recent graduate of Oregon State Universitys Brewing Sciences program, Jason celebrates his inner college student and his soon-to-be new station in life with Big Daddy J. According to Jason, BDJ is a malt liquor that is simple and delicious. Its golden in color and hopped with Hallertau Hersbrucker hops, perfectly balanced so that its clean and drinkable smoothness makes that 8 percent alcohol go down so easily. Full Sails Brewers Share beers will only be available on tap at Full Sails Tasting Room and Pub in Hood River, Oregon, and at Full Sails Brewery at Riverplace, in Portland, Oregon.

troopie (2291) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - SEP 20, 2012
Draught. Pours yellow with thin white head. Rather pleasant malt aroma with a sweet note. Flavour is much too sweet, with an unpleasant alcohol burn finish.

PorterPounder (5695) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 12, 2012
Hood River, Or - on tap at the brewpub. Medium gold pour, bubbly white head. Aroma is pretty much neutral. Flavor has some corn accents, not unpleasant, some Belgian-like candi sugar notes. Kind of like an American malt liquors the rough edges sanded down. Smooth mouthfeel.

BuckeyeBoy (2863) - Boise, Idaho, USA - APR 28, 2009
On Tap at Full Sail Brewery, Hood River. Pours out a goldish amber topped with a white head. Aroma of sweet caramel and some malt. Tast was more of the sweetness and a nice malt. Not bad at all for a Malt Liquor.

alexanderj (3332) - Branson, Missouri, USA - APR 5, 2009
On tap at Full Sail in Hood River. Did not realize this was a malt liquor; when I was drinking it I couldn’t really decide what it was. Clear gold in color. Flavor of sweet malt and fruit. A bit dry in the finish for the style. Good in moderation.

spikester (604) - Salem, Oregon, USA - JAN 6, 2009
UPDATED: JAN 9, 2009 I am rating this to style which is a true ghetto style malt liquor. Pours rich golden amber with a three finger white head. Some minor lacings. Aroma is cider and malts. Taste is winey malty and lots of alcohol. Not too bad for a 8% malt. Very smooth for the style. I would suggest to the new brewer that he make a batch for the old school malt lovers at an abv of 5.5%. Then the flavors would be more in the foreground. For the high abv and the style it was really good. Hopheads should avoid at all costs. Drinkability: depends on how much alcohol you can tolerate. 01-08-09: had to update. Am having to struggle to finish the growler.

beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - JAN 1, 2009
On tap at the Pilsner Room. Darker amber pour with a soft beige head. This wasn’t all that bad, a bit hot and cloying. Malt flavors give notes of bread and honey, hops tried to balance a bit, but still sweet into the finish. Ehh, at least fun to see Malt Liquor on the menu.

3fourths (8228) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 29, 2008
Draft @ Full Sail in Hood River. Clear gold with a small white head. Nose is marginally skunky diesel-scented pils malt with a sweeter note of honeyed grains. Mostly clean, appropriately syrupy and thick, and overall pretty good for malt liquor, which means its just above drinkable overall. Malt Liquor rating #10. Eisbock and Kristalweizen left to complete 10 ratings each.
