Pours a very clearpale amber with a thin white head that fades to a ring quickly and holds. Aroma is overripe fruit, solvents, fusel, lots of Pla Doh, and sweet fermenting corn. Flavor is suprisingly weak-probably a good thing for a high gravity malt liquor, corn, alcohol, sweet overripe fruit, like fruit salad made of stuff that was almost starting to rot, lettuce, generic cough drops, luckily all very faint. Palate is medium to heavy body, oily and dry at the same time and has a light, but sharp carbonation. Not very good at all, really not very good. Gross. Edit: I forgot to mention that it probably would have scored quite a bit higher (compared to the "1" I gave it anyway) if it hadn’t made me shudder upon my first drink, and given me near instantaneous gut rot. zathrus13 (1776) - Mount Laurel, New Jersey, USA - MAY 8, 2010
Pours gold/yellow, with a white head. Aroma is alcohol and corn. Flavor is grapes, alcohol, and corn. wxman (1820) - O’Fallon, Illinois, USA - APR 30, 2010
Pours a bright clear golden. Fairly thick white head quickly diminishes with just a thin coat remaining sustained by active carbonation. Off sweet corn aroma. Overly sweet malt and corn taste, green apples, as well as a sourness similar to a bad batch of home brew. Taste does not easily leave the mouth after the swallow. Aftertaste is medicinal. Alcohol warmth noticable. Not the worst ML I’ve ever had, but still an ML. MeadMe (1662) - Fishhawk, Florida, USA - MAR 9, 2010
Why Dave why do you insist on doing this to me.
A: Pours a pale yellow with a foamy head. No lace.
S: Aromas of corn, bread, and a cat’s litter box.
T: Sweet corn, cane sugar, floor stripper.
M: Light, thin, fizzy.
D: Would rather drink what’s in the cat’s litter box. brokensail (16449) - Dublin, California, USA - FEB 28, 2010
A: The pour is crystal clear and very, very pale yellow in color. The head is initially white and fluffy, but disappears almost as quickly as it arrived.
S: The nose is dominated by a sweet, airy rice aroma. There’s a touch of grain sweetness and a fair amount of skunk.
T: I didn’t think the flavor could get much worse than the nose, but somehow, it did. This one is all rice, corn, and booze. Just awful.
M: Very, very light body. The carbonation is fairly high, but it doesn’t do much to help out the watery beer.
D: One of the most godawful things I’ve put in my mouth. Thanks Jacob and Jer for sharing this one...very generous.

Can courtesy of Ibrew2or3. Pours a clear honey yellow color with thin white head. Aroma is sweet corn, honey, grain, yeast. Aroma is sweet and malty with strong sweet corn, grain, yeast. Medium body, weird finish. Had to choke this one down. markwise (5441) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - FEB 14, 2010
Thanks? IBrew2or3 for the share. Pours clear gold with a small, white head. Nose is acetone, corn, lager, booze, and adjuncts. Flavor is similar with lingering sugary junkyard finish. Wow. gkost (1069) - Alaska, USA - FEB 6, 2010
Pours yellow, almost syrupy in nature. Nose is adjuncts, corn, sugars, alcohol, stinks. Flavor is corn, fruity mess, sugar syrup, grossness, acetone. Ibrew2or3 (8614) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JAN 29, 2010
This 24oz aluminum beauty is courtesy of bvc. The can pours clear pure gold with white head. The aroma has robust notes of apples, apricots, plums, raisins, corn juice and white caro syrup. The taste is very sweet, dear lord, unjustifiably sweet. I get slick sugary apple cider, sweet corn, apricots, pears and some straight up esteriness. I can’t drink more than an ounce or two without some food with it to temper the sweetness. blackmurder (236) - Whitaker, Oregon, USA - DEC 21, 2009
It is what it is. Want to get a good buzz for $1.50? Get a can of black ice. I only drink this stuff when I am broke and at a 7-11. It is foul in every way imaginable. Notes of rotting fruit and corn are apparent and the taste is of car tire and stale grape candy. I am actually drinking this right now, and though it is about as tasty as a bottle of cheap wine it does what it should. A great novelty item and if you’re a broke alcoholic and the liquor store is closed go for it. It’ll let you down but you’ll be making calls to your ex girlfriend after the first half is gone.
