PRUCK's rating

GIT BIT!!! King Cobra---The Standard of Forties. The cap twists off with a crisp snap of fizz, unleashing the reassuring scent of skunked budweiser! King Cobra is fizzy, has a relatively light body, and a taste of ricey schwag. Crisp finishing that is drier than just about any other forty. Only BIG BEAR beats King Cobra in this genre, but if you cant find BIG BEAR you cant go wrong with this. My armpits ALWAYS smell just like super-skunked beer the day after one or two of these treats.

Aroma and flavor is corn/malts, mild fruit and an oddly alcoholic/mostly adjunct finish.

Bought a 40 for my wifes 40th birthday party. I had to cool this to near freezing, and then it was tolerable. Low ABV for malt liquor, so you dont get the buzz you probably want if youre investing your funds in this product. It was good for a joke but I probably will never have another.

40oz bottle poured into piilsner glass.

Pours like apple juice, as far as color goes. It has a decent head, not overwhelming. Doesnt lat long. Some lacing as you swirl, but not a lot.

Aroma is meh. First glass was terrible. Second glass isnt quite so bad. I smell corn, maybe sone cooked vegetables (again, corn). Maybe a little breadiness. Bubble gum. Im not impressed. It has less of an aroma than say, Budweiser.

Taste is pretty sweet. Again first glass was not so good, second glass isnt quite so terrible. Its stout, but pretty smooth. Its pretty strong. Im not sure about taste.

Mouthfeel is very mixed. First glass, it made my mouth numb. Second glass, mouth went numb again, but not so much. Its smooth, but thats about all.

Overall, you should probably drink it straight it from the bottle. The more I drink it, the more I like it. But for now, as I drink it at the moment, its not great. I do however like the price. "Dont let the smooth taste fool ya" what the heck does that mean? I dont really like it, sooo, is this a trick? Am I a fool? No. If youre looking for malt liquor, try something else.

Poured from a 40 OZ bottle into a red solo cup. This still couldnt conceal my shame!!! This beer is horrible from the color, smell to the taste. I didnt even like the label on the bottle. I dont mind a good malt liquor, I like Colt 45, Magnum and Private Stock. But this is awful.
