My.................Dear...................God..... Despite my ability to confess my affinity for high grav swill, this one is too much even for me. I nearly gag with every wretched sip. Horribly fake bubblegum, grain alcohol, and vanilla sweetness make me want to vomit every time this horrible elixer enters my mouth. Why o why was this ever brewed??? The saddest part of this evening, is that my disdain for this beer is only (slightly) surpassed by my desire to blackout...... thirdeye11 (6160) - Dallas, Texas, USA - AUG 1, 2010
(24oz can thanks to blutt59, the master of the natural disaster series) clear medium yellow with very few bubbles. Nose of alcohol, corn, burns the nose it’s so sharp, as well as sugary apples. Taste of fusel alcohol, fermented apples, very hot finish with an oily medium thick body. Who can drink this crap?? ljay6880 (475) - , Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 22, 2010
24oz can served in a pint glass. Pour is clear urine with very little head that disappears very fast. Nose is corn and more corn, sugar, and very light citrus. Taste is corn, sugar, and rubbing alcohol. This stuff really is terrible. I would rather pay $10 per beer for natty light than drink this stuff. The taste almost triggers my gag reflex every time and it burns like I am shooting liquor. I know it was only a buck, and that’s why I picked one up, but I figured that no matter how bad it was, a 12% ABV brew for a buck was a deal no matter what ... I WAS WRONG!! I poured it out after enough sips to rate it. On a side note, if I was 10 years younger and still in college, I believe I would have just found a new beer of choice :) blutt59 (6565) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUL 10, 2010
Can, clear yellow with an oily metallic lemon aroma , and bad tsting lemony malt SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JUL 5, 2010
In the 24 oz. "Master Cylinder." Pours a crystal clear corn tassel yellow with a small white head that can’t even be sustained by the magical Sam Adams glass. The aroma is striking in that it generates a similar scent to a well-made apple cider with a slight splash of acrylamide. The flavor has quite a bit of apple as well, but mostly a thick candy sweetness. If you arrogant beer geeks sampled this blindly and were told that it was a Belgian strong ale, you’d lap this up. I will be the first to confess that this is a cheap malt liquor that is inexplicably without mistakes. There’s no fusel alcohols to be had. There’s no acetone and no acetaldehyde. Typically, I get a strong boiled vegetable aroma and flavor from products such as these (designed for the alcoholic cigarette smoker who cannot taste anyway). But none of these disgusting attributes are present in Earthquake. I have two negatives: One, the alcohol is way out of whack and it is simply painful to drink as you fix the epithelium lining your gullet. Two, the beer really should not be so visually artificial looking and would improve with an unfiltered version. Yes, that’s right. I want an unfiltered version of WINO BEER. Seriously, this is the most drinkable of all the 12% exploitative alcohols. I dare you to dismiss this against such absurd products as Lucifer and Beelzebub.

Thanks to blutt59 for sharing this high gravity greatness.
The beer pours a dark yellow color with a white head. The aroma is that of plastic and oil. Seriously, how does a beer smell this bad? The flavor is skunk (not sure how a can gets skunked but it did), citrus fruit and awfulness. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. The appearance of the big 24 ounce can is awesome, everything else is terrible. mar (5423) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUL 2, 2010
bu11zyeye perhaps? i don’t know who brought this crap. poured gold with a white head. nose is alcohol, grassy malts, not much else. whoa, alcohol, florals, sugar, and carbonation. morbeer (11) - Sparks, Nevada, USA - JUN 27, 2010
I don’t know how anyone can drink this crap. A friend of mine brought a couple of these beers over and he offered me one. I took one sip and nearly puked, it was that bad. This will fuck you up quick with that 12% alcohol volume. Poured the rest out. It looked like my friend pissed in the can. Stay away!!! This beer is garbage!!!!

Courtesy SoLan. From a monster 24oz. can pours a clear, medium-golden colored body with a small, fizzy, off white head. There’s some decent lacing, primarily in the form of jagged rings. The nose is absolutely vile, exploding with notes of sugary corn, grain alcohol, and dirty water. It’s almost overpowering in its sugar laden, boozy potency. Flavors too are awful, again showing boiled corn, sugar water, stale grain sweetness, and cardboard. Searing alcoholic heat is like a cruel joke. A few sips are more than enough to deem this beast a drain pour. The palate is downright thick, sticky, cloying, and hot. There’s really not a single redeeming quality about it. Horrid beer. My teeth hurt after drinking this. heemer77 (5358) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - JUN 4, 2010
UPDATED: OCT 28, 2011 Trying again. This is brutally worse form what I recalled. Just so sweet with fusel alcohol. From a 24oz can. Smells of corn, green beans and raw smelted metal. The taste is sickly sweet with creamed corn and bread crust. There is also some almond and rubbing alcohol. Overall, not too bad for a malt liquor, but you would have to love the corn.
