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.

Bottle @ Exira Beer Summit IV. Thanks to BlackIPA for this wale. Pours a clear golden orange appearance with a small cream colored head. Apple juice, corn, vanilla, sweet candy aroma. A bit cloying, candy corn, corny, somewhat spicy, juicy fruity flavor. Pretty solid malt liquor but this is no Molson Dry 7.5.

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.

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.

marcus (6537) - Sacramento, California, USA - OCT 5, 2012
Bottle from Total Wine, Sacramento. Pours clear golden with a modest white head and a fruity yeast aroma. There is a thick caramel malt flavor with a funky rather bitter finish. Not really clean and drinkable as advertised.

Draft. Like the fact they tried malt liquor. Clear tan imperial lager look and taste. Pretty present aftertaste. Eh ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - DEC 8, 2012
Bottle:   Bright straw, somewhat clear, light carbonation, soft white head, frothy, little lacing.   Corny nose, certainly mealy.   Not my favorite, but I guess its what is to be expected.   A bit smoother on the tongue, malty without being too mealy.   Lingering mealiness.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Strong mealiness on the finish.   Very clean example, not as corny as others.   Still not my favorite style, but this one seemed to have all the flavors of shitty beers without tasting that shitty.   Does that even make sense?   For the flavors I don’t really care for, this one seemed artisianal.   Surprised its 8%, so its got that going for it.   A little fruity too.   For a Malt Likka, it wasn’t so bad.   I didn’t feel like I was going to throw up after finishing this 22oz bottle, so that counts for something... right?

2/22-23/13. Bomber shared at some point during RBWG. I thought for sure I had lost my notes from that night and was packing today when BOOM, full page of ratings, including this GEM. Golden pour. A touch of spice, booze, and sweet malts in the aroma and flavor. Could be worse.

PorterPounder (5572) - 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.

tgncc (2823) - Bellmore, New York, USA - NOV 7, 2012
The aroma is corn, rice, adjuncts, booze. The appearance is clear gold, effervescent, white head. The flavor is corn sweetness, light noble hops, light booze burn. The finish is sweet, then a boozy, solvent like burn. Medium in body, greasy mouthfeel. Not bad. I did this beer just to boost my ratings of malt liquors, and in that category, this beer is a strong performer.
