Richmond 19th. Can. Light gold, honey and corn. Flavor matches. Horrible, but better than the Labatt’s. Really should have saved this baby for Slutfest.

Plastic nose. Clear yellow, head. Corn and cane sugar flavor but not badly cloying. Better than regular Steel Reserve but still a drain pour.

Can courtesy of Kinz at the 19th Richmond Ratebeer Gathering. Pours a clear golden color with a medium sized white head that quickly fades. Aroma of green banana, grain, grassy hops. The taste is sweet corn, tart finish. Medium bodied, harsh. Foul.

First and probably last true malt liquor I’ll 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 couldn’t 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.

Pours yellow/gold, with a white head. Aroma is corn and malt, and maybe some hops. Flavor is corn, sugar, and alcohol. Medium body.

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

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. Lot’s of alcohol taste in this thing. Isn’t good at all.
