Big fucken canned @ home via Johnís Grocery courtesy pete. Iíve never had a Big Cock. Slightly hazy dark orange appearance with a disappearing tan head. Sickly sweet, cotton candy, tropical fruity, slight chemical aroma. Cardboard, papery, twangy fruity, goopy caramel flavor with a bitter finish. I put some Big Cock in my mouth but I couldnít bring myself to enjoying Big Cock to completion.

Can thanks to Pepsiís Gift Wrapping LLC. Coukdnt take the whole thing straight to the mouth so poured into a glass. Nose of orange and grapefruit zest with some perfumey notes as well. Huge off white head. Wouldnít go down. Velvety and creamy initial with a bitter finish. Highly carbonated and difficult to choke down big gulps. Donít think I could handle more than one of these.

Can date unk. October? Pours a good copper with a withering finger of peanut foam leaving a solid sheet and some spotty lace. The nose here is comprised of grapefruit, grass, manure (oddly, but not badly) and some lemon peel. Flavor follows through with a nice spicy hop feel and citric burn. Surprisingly (despite the review just below me), I donít find this one particularly bitter, and in fact quite balanced in favor of the malts which are sweetly english in character. Upon further inspection, there is a decent bitter kick at the end, but I dig it as it is fleeting and not overshadowing the other characteristics. Medium bodied with hi carb. This beer is pretty yummy, I would totally drink this again and would love to get a 4 pack to take with me hunting! Plus, awesome name. Serving type: bottle 01-01-2012

Pour is a dark red with a average white head. Aroma is very sweet but has enough hops. Flavor is again sweet malts are the first thing I get. Some hops eventually show up. Very heavy and sweet with a bit of alcohol showing up. This was just ok.

On tap. Decent if not subdued version of an IPA. I suspect thereís some non-standard ingredients that are going on here that I canít quite put my finger on though

16oz tallboy can from jcwatts, thanks John. Poured a nice looking orangey/amber body with a smaller to average sized slightly foamy off whtie head. Aroma is more malty then hoppy overall, notes of chcolate and caramel malts, toast, some tosted grains, earthy citrus rinds and rotting citrus meat. Palate is decent with a medium body and lots of carbonation that finishes slightly on the fizzy side with lingering bubbles. Flavor of seltzer, old toast, grains, cereal bran, dry citrus rind and old orange pulp mixed with earth. This was a let down compared to the other GRB beers I trieed.
