This is amazing. ONe of the smoothest malt liquors I have had and that is saying a lot since I must have drank well over 40 brands since I can remember.

The four oh with the ’imported taste.’ Imported from where? I’ll never know, and don’t care. When I’m reaching into the cooler, this is the forty that get’s my attention.

I have always loved Private Stock. I had it for the first time in the mid 80’s. My brother introduced it to me while we were in the Marine Corps station in Noth Carolina. Since then here in the 2000’s my freinds and I always enjoy our Private stock nights.

It RULES!!! Who cares what it tastes like when there are puzzles under the caps??? You can’t drink it fast enough ’cause you want to get to the next puzzle. Pretty soon, your mates and you are blasted and you start making up nonsense about what the puzzles mean...

Can, poured into glass. Light, amber-gold with a foamy though fast-retreating head. Aroma of caramel, corn, light hops. Flavor is sweet, but not overly so like some Malt Liquors, with more corn and caramel. Medium-bodied with strong carbonation. Very smooth and somewhat creamy. This is the best Malt Liquor I’ve ever had.

16oz green bottle from the local Hannaford. Pours a light yellow translucent body with a quarter inch or less of witeish head. Cereal grains dominate the aroma with a touch of butter. Cereal grains dominate the flavor too, with hints of maltiness, citrus hops. Flavor is very good for the style. Very light in body with ample carbonation makes this a drinkable brew. Overall, an extremely solid malt liquor, much better than others in the style.

40 oz. Bought in Boston with Count Zero and Kae. I find that they’re very tasty and smooth. I bought a case, another case and I would buy another.

OK class quiet down! Now, to judge a Malt Liquor, you must first ask your self these three important questions. #1 Is it Ghetto? #2 Is it Strong? and #3 Does it keep it Real? Private Stock answers #1, and #3, with a resounding yes, however, it’s a little weak in the Alchol department, so Ye’ Private Stock rates very highly in the ’beginners 40 catagory’, after all, if the ’Notorious’ sipped them, so should you! Class dismissed!
