First and probably last true malt liquor Iíll ever have. Heavy corn smell and taste and becomes absolutely vile if it takes you more than 30 minutes to drink the whole 24 oz monster. I am not a lightweight, and I couldnít feel my face halfway through, which makes me think there is something more than ethanol at work here. Poured out the last third of the can, went to bed, and felt awful the next morning. Good for someone who hates their liver and being able to remember what they did last night.

Why in the hell do you idiots take the time out of your life to pour, examine, and rate black steel reserve? Itís a dollar fifty 24oz can of malt liquor. If you think the buyers of this are researching your reviews youíre sorely mistaken.

1.1 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Can from Gas Station. Pours a dull yellow with a thick white head. The aromas are corn, skunk. The mouthfeel is slightly dry and bready with a medium body and light carbonation. Lotís of alcohol taste in this thing. Isnít good at all.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Steel Reserve 211 Triple Export has a thick, stark-white head and a clear, somewhat bubbly, golden appearance, with almost no lacing left behind. The aroma is funky, meaning sickly-sweet grain husk. The taste is rich and bold: sweet grain, minimal hop bitterness, corn, and sugar. The mouthfeel is medium to heavy, and Steel Reserve 211 Triple Export finishes crisp and mildly refreshing. Itís gameyness limits its drinkability. This is interesting and even good. I recommend giving it a try. RJT

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
24oz can from the state store. What was I thinking? The good: Pours crystal clear golden with a big white head and some lacing. The bad: Everything else! Sweet, corn, honey. The taste is bitter alcohols. I should have put it in the freezer, maybe it would have been better. Footbalmed 23ozís.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
5/4/12. 24oz can. At first sip, I have to say, this is less offensive than many of the malt liquors Iíve had in the past couple of weeks. Sweet, grainy aroma with touches of corn and apples. Sweet flavor as well, more apple and sweet graininess - and something that is distinctly fruity, almost tropical - like a pina colada or something... very interesting. I have to say, for 8.1% and about a buck a tallboy, this is surprisingly unoffensive.
