pretty brutal stuff. looks and probably tastes like urine. up there with some of the worst beers ever. CheersMate (1343) - Portland (Sellhood), Oregon, USA - APR 17, 2008
Copper/orange color. Looks decent. The head is actually decent as well. This is not a horrible looking beer. This is a very pungent beer. Smells of alcohol, and well that is pretty much it. A little grassy aroma. The taste? OH MAN! This is a little rank. Very watered down taste at first, and then the aftertaste is just bad. The beer has a funky kick to it. There is not much to say other than if you want to get extremely drunk for 5$, get rocked like a hurricane. clb1265 (1) - USA - AUG 13, 2005 does not count
Odd smell, poor but not aweful taste however it had an after taste especially when you drink it right when poured, let it sit a few minutes and it wasn’t AS bad. Carbonation hurt the back of my throat a little at first. But hey, I got really really buzzed on a 24oz can though, 8.1% alcohol, so if you just care about a good solid buzz, go for it! jovialgeorge (1) - Dickson City, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 8, 2006 does not count
light body, thin feel, flat, alcoholish. No bitter at all, it has a strange, long back to it. It struck me as a drink that was not really beer, just beer-like.
Poured the last 4oz or so of the 48oz down the drain, i had enough. cheap (6201) - CHINA - JAN 4, 2007
UPDATED: JUN 25, 2011 Ruff tuff stuff. I have a situation that is high gravity, one that is grave – I am very thirsty! Half pound can dressed in black with bold bright lettering. So, you ask, did he really not drink this before? Should I be ashamed to say I did enjoy this before? Is there anyone in the US that never tasted this before? This is not a ticker, it is an actual rating as I enjoy it. Wanted some rate beer experience first. Pours like strong ale in my steeler stein. Initially it is very fizzy and the carbonation fades to no lacing or even bubbles. Color of a dark yellow / light brown appearance, did they add some caramel fruit coloring? Not much aroma but what exists is a hint of sweetness. The aroma is no hint of what lurks within the flavor. The initial flavor is an aimless alcohol impact. The background flavor is of a typical good quality pale yellow american beer, but that is the background. It is the alcohol of a barley wine, strong ale and dubbel. There is a bite in the back of my throat. I think the initial numbing of the flavor makes your taste buds accept it easier as you continue. Didn’t I read that high gravity is good for some beer styles? After all, it’s brewed for a distinctive bold taste? When slugged, there is some fizz on the back of the throat but for the most part this is pretty flat. Usually it is the finish that makes IPA and imp stouts unbearable, but with this brew the initial rough bitterness is hard and unbearable. After the initial onslaught, it may become acceptable. The pre-finish nearly insults my uvula. As far as the % alcohol goes, this is on par with some of the better high % beers, brown shugga and elephant! Dare I say the finish of Bells wheat love?

Pours a clear gold color, topped by an inch and a half of sudsy white foam. Decent head retention, a little bit of lacing. Sweetish aroma like some kind of artificial candy. Not pleasant.
The taste is also sweet, though not artificial like the aroma. Instead it is more flowery or even perfumy. There is a little bit of hops in the finish, then more of that same sweetness in the aftertaste. Not a great flavor, but not gross or cloying either.
Not quite medium body, too lightly carbonated. PickettsCharge (89) - USA - JUL 30, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 17, 2007 The taste of this beer is very much like licking a piece of copper initially, then it has a bite to it.
I got these big boys 24 oz. in a case of 12....and had to pass 11 off to my poor buddy, who got slammed with this bad beer.
Edit: 2 months later... these still taste like a rich man’s Colt 45 mixed with urine of a Brahman bull....makes you strong....I love how A-B puts these into cans that look like energy drinks so you can take them all around, to places such as work or school or on a stroll. ooooNosEooooo (3) - Saint Augustine, Florida, USA - DEC 4, 2007 does not count

Sometimes its just fun to see how many you can drink before you puke, its that kind of beer. Guinness4Duff (515) - Tallahassee (and Poconos, PA), Florida, USA - JAN 23, 2008
This stuff is pretty bad, but if you shotgun the 4 pack real quick it will get you good and hammered.
