Thanks to blutt59 for sharing this beer. It was sampled side-by-side with a can of Earthquake in order to truly experience some great malt liquors.
The beer pours a yellow color with a white head. The aroma is wheat, pickles, trash and citrus. The flavor is citrus, wheat and alcohol. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Better than Earthquake, but that is not saying much.

Also enjoyed in my Trappistes Rochefort glass today. Opened for a special occation. Wallowing in the defete of Team USA in the 2010 World Cup vs. the Ghana-rians today. 2-1 OT. I figured Iíll endure some more torture til the end by opening this American Malt Liquor.
24oz can. Medium gold color, thin white head. Smells like prison-made mead with rice pudding sweetness. Upon taking the first sip, gag reflex kicks in. WOW WEE, this stuff is strong. Tastes like apple juice and soggy cheerios. Ooh, thatís a brutal one. I donít know if I can finish this whole can without throwing up. Man, am I gonna be shitfaced.

From a twenty four ounce can purchased at "Kellerís IGA" - This stuff is definitely bottom rung wino beer, but it isnít terrible in short servings. Yeah, itís a clear, straw hued brew with a very sweet flavor, but it isnít terrible.

UPDATED: JUN 17, 2010 Acworth, Ga - Chevron store - 24 oz, black macho-looking can. Medium golden pour, fluffy white head. Aroma actually has some stale yeasty notes similar to a cheap Belgian Ale. Flavor is very boozy and chemically with hints of stale, soggy kidís cereal. Harsh mouthfeel, burns as it goes down, .

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a clear bright golden with a respectable white head. Nose is bubble gum. Sugary sweetness dominates the flavor; some taste of pale malt and alcohol. No hop bitterness whatsoever. Alcohol warmth after the swallow. Not as offensive as one would expect of a high gravity budget ML, but the over the top sweetness is whatís most off putting.

0.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
Pours a darker yellow with a rich white head. Looks like a hearty lager. Smells pretty bad, rotting corn, fuel oil, and marshmallows. Thick, awful mouth feel. Terrible flavor, like gasoline. Higher carbonation than most malt liquors, but one could never chug this. Not for quenching thirst, thatís for sure. Offensive after taste, like really bad cough syrup. Not as sweet as many high octane brews. That makes this even harder. Quite a bit of burn going down. Iím an experienced drinker and even I got a severe headache from this shit. Blech. Paid $2.99 for four 16 ouncers in West Allis, Wisconsin.

This poured a piss yellow color, no shock there! This smells like fail, rotting corn and urine. The flavor is sweet corn, alcohol, and again fail. Oh man this is horrid! The aftertaste is full of sweet creamed corn and rubbing alcohol. I can stomach some malt liquors but this is one of the worst Ive ever had. I just burped and the burp offended me. This f-n sucks it!

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Stack High Gravity Smooth Lager has a surprisingly thick, white head and relatively good amount of carbonation. The appearance is a slightly cloudy orange-gold color. Aroma is sharp and stinging, which a fruity and overwhelming alcohol smell. The taste is very harsh and apple predominates. Actually, Stack tastes more like wine than beer. Certainly, this beer is not bland, but Iím not sure "good" makes its way into the discussion. Mouth-feel is heavy and wet. This drink has little to no lacing.

All right, so it ainít Orval Trappist. But at 12% abv, it gets the proverbial "JOB" done. So pick up a can or two posthaste and downíem now! THE STACK IS AN EXCEPTIONAL ALCOHOL DELIVERY SYSTEM -- I mean, think about it, neighbor -- 24 ounces @12%abv -- thatís the equivalent of 4.8 12 oz. cans/bottles of 5% abv brew....
TWO OF THESE IN SHORT SUCCESSION AND YOUR IN BUSINESS, PAL!
