LaFinca (6) - state college, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 13, 2003
If you're a person who likes high alcohol content and no flavor, this beer is great for you. But, if you like high alcohol and a great tasting beer, I suggest you spend your money on Yards IPA if you live in the Pennsylvania area. This is one of the most flavorful IPAs in the world, for a very reasonable price, that comes in at 8.0% ABV although you will never guess it because it is so smooth and full bodied. The Molson XXX will probably be a great seller among the college crowd but, unfortunately, they are missing out on so many strong beers that also have a very important dimension that this beer lacks - “FLAVOR”.

bottle @ The Andersons / Columbus OH --- Clear light amber color, ivory head that drops quickly to the rim, splotches of lace. Aroma of malt that is a little off. Taste is centered around caramel with a little malt mixed in. The sweet stays strong all the way through a fizzed swallow and a finish with only a tiny hint of hops. I can drink it, but there are other better things to drink out there.

SUPER PREMIUM!!! NO PRESERVATIVES. Bottle best by NOV0215, from Total Wine in Cherry Hill. Twist-off cap. Nose grainy with a little grass, not skunked, very saccharine and leaning toward aspartame. Touch fumey. Pours clear, bright, rich golden with heavy carbonation and a fizzy bright white head that just tuckers itself out -- it’s not a bad looking beer at all. Taste sweet and lightly boozy with surprisingly heavy malt to match the corn overtones, has good and gentle malt liquor floral character but it just can’t match the heat. Graininess disappears somewhat. Full body again boozy, but this one’s a trip worth taking!

With some ice cubes.

(Honestly, I’ve had quite a few ’pure’ tripels (i.e., Belgian) with more fire than this and less charm.)

((Ohmygosh I wasn’t making fun of the rating below mine! Such is the coincident power of the triple-X))

GuruSoldier (1) - Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 29, 2015 does not count
This Super Premium Beer contains no preservatives unlike so many of these so called craft brews that have to add fruity flavors and pumpkin spices to them to make them palatable. XXX goes down smooth, it leaves no film in my mouth or the taste of chemicals like so many other beers I have tried and I have tried a lot of high dollar brews. XXX reminds me of the beer I use to get when I was stationed in the FRG back in the 1980s when the purity laws were4 in full effect. XXX with a nice light body, not too much carbonation and the right amount of alcohol to do the job. One of the few non-German brews I can drink even if it gets hot from being in the desert. Several other older experienced military men drank it hot too right along with me that day and no one refused another Oil Can. Semper Fi

Poured from a 24 OZ can into a pint glass. Yes, I lack common sense. This beer is not horrid, but it will not make my "gosh, I am craving a beer list". . . ever! It is made to impair and it does it well. The flavor is fairly rich with cereal and corn. Not much more to say but , it is sold mostly in gas stations here in GA.

Can at PBFX. Clear golden color, small white head. Very light fruity aroma. Light-bodied to medium-bodied. Clean mouthfeel. Sweetish pear flavor. Light and easy. Not too bad, more drinkable than expected.
