Bottle. From notes. First off, I tried this for the first time due to a trade for secret krampus. The bottle that John brought to rbsg was quite a bit different. For a bottle that was around 8 years old, this held up very well. A little oxidized but my god, this was still a great beer. Too bad it’s done, I would live to try this vs a fresh one.

Pours a bright red with a small head.

The aroma is cherries, cardboard, and play dough. The cherry aroma is actually nice. But it doesn’t smell like Michelob, THE HECK?!

The flavor is obviously oxidized and odd, but it does have some sweetness and some cherry flavor. The booziness is present but not in an overwhelming way.


Certainly something I had wanted to try but never thought I’d get the chance, thanks clock!

Bottle during RBSG 2014 thanks to jtclockwork. Clear amber with off-white head and some sediment. Aromas of cherries, syrup. Tastes of cherries, wheat, skunk. Medium-light body with a dry finish.

Bottle @ Presidential Suite. Thanks to James for this special treat. Faded red/orange pour with a small white head. Nose is like cherry soda and Kool Aid. A bit of cardboard and seltzer. Tastes like sucrets. Just sort of a sweet cherry syrup and crystalline sugar thing going on. Slightly watery. Definitely oxidized. Just sort of sweet and that’s about it. Not awful, though.

Sample @ RBWG, Asheville. Thanks JT Clockwork! MACRO WHALE WATCH! Deep amber pour with a small head. Strong oxidized cherry syrup and breakfast cereal. Tasste is similar. Pretty papery, the aging hasn’t improved this beast. Some artificial cherry, fruit gushers. Light body, active carbonation. Meh.

I tried this ancient garbage in a hotel room after official festivities for the day were discontinued during RateBeer Summer Gathering 2014. This is what these things are all about, people. It is a weird ass old Michelob brew that comes in a bottle shaped like an enormous dildo. It is orange with a white ring of head. There is a good bit of cherry and it is quite nutty and oxidized. It is slightly tart and very result. It is honestly pretty terrible but still a very cool beer to try. You cannot go wrong w/ hyper obscure macro ratings in this guy’s book.

The beer comes in a nice sex toy. Taste is medicine. Licked this wierd stuff off the top of the bottle.

Oh snap, dildo bottle share from JT. Red brown pour, aroma of Swedish berries, sweet malts and cardboard. Taste, cardboard sweetness, sugar and I don’t know Vicks cherry cough drops.
