1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
For what this is, itís really not that bad. Iíd take this over a Bud or Miller any day. First the good. Pours a pretty deep golden with a large frothy head that manages some slight lacing even at a 9.9% ABV. Doesnít burn a lot going down and is sort of smooth in its twisted íIm a chuggable airline fuelí way. Now the bad. Both aroma and flavor suffer from a very cidery quality. In fact, if you like hard cider, you wonít hate this. Unfortunately, I canít stand hard cider. Finishes with a fairly clean grain and apple wash. Luckily, thereís little aftertaste. Very dry as well. Honestly, you could do a lot worse. Drink this at your next frat party, or any time you hear a DMX jam and you might sprout a bigger Johnson, or at least think you did.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
This is pretty premium stuff for a ten percenter. It is still really bad but once youíve tried a lot of this sort of thing, you learn to appreciate someone who does it less wrong. Itís got a sort of Budweiser-type apple fruitiness to it, maybe a touch of acetone which isnít my favorite thing but is acceptable in the style. Itís pretty dry for its strength and only burns a little bit going down. Bitterness is earthy rather than metallic so thatís a plus as well. This stuff is designed for a singular purpose and it does that well.

710ml can. Lightly hazy pour. Aroma is suprisingly malty, some fruits, green apple acetone, flavor is fairly earthy. Not terrible for an hg.

24oz bottle share at Cotteridge II as Stack 101 High Gravity Smooth Lager, 9.9%. Many thanks to Macboost and the West Mild-lands crew for another malt liquor.

1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
24oz can from the shadiest indie gas station in town, $1.59.
Pour: none (drinking out of the can, of course).
Appearance: unknown (see above).
Taste: sweet, metallic corn urine. Actually pretty mild for being a strong malt liquor.
Hadnít seen this before so I had to try it. Rather drinkable compared to competitors like Steel Reserve, Earthquake and Camo. Not good, but if you are broke and want to get drunk, Stack 101 High Gravity Smooth Lager is, well, a smooth high gravity lager, I suppose.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Can big thanks to MacBoost, Rich & Sarky at the 2016 Cotteridge Convention. It pours clear pale yellow - gold with a medium, foamy white head. The aroma is grainy, paper, creamy, tapioca and raw alcohol. The taste is crisp, raw alcohol upfront, corn, straw, tangy apple, pear and cereal with a dry, boosty finish. Medium body and moderate, foamy action. Pretty rough and hot. Poor.
