40oz from a gas station in Troy, TX. Carefully poured into my Single Malt Scotch Association snifter. Light orange pour with a thick white head. Aroma is just grainy and kinda weird. Taste is painfully sweet, ,alcohol, and what I assume is sweat from the underside of a mountain mans breast.

Bottle. A - Not a bad pour. Very light apple juice colored gold with a large, light, fluffy, sticky, bright white head. Somewhat thick, very good retention, and a decent patchy lace. S - Pretty subdued. Sweet corn and malt with a touch of cooked vegetable. Some of that overly sweet, slightly tart and acidic apple, but not in a good way. Slight alcohol. T - Typical malt liquor flavors. Sweet corn and malt flavors. A lot of sweet candish apple mid sip toward the finish. A bit of a cooked vegetable flavor as well. A bit of an off floralish flavor. Definite grainy finish. M - Light, thin body with average carbonation. Dry, sticky finish. D - Not offensive, but no where near easy to drink. Sweet, alcoholy, and a touch cloying/sticky. Not easy to drink plenty of. Notes: Meh, not overly impressed, but what I more or less expected. Average high gravity malt liquor. Overly sweet with corn and apple and alcohol.

Sampled from a 40 oz bottle of course, is there any other way? Pour a little on the ground for the homies that cant drink with you, add a little orange juice and you and your brass monkey are off to the races. Tape one to each hand, next stop blackoutville.

The beer is ravished with fusel oils. Its hard to really rate this one, because it does have a half-assed malt liquor taste (which I like) but is drowned out by the persistent fumes of a bad fermentation. I wouldnt say it has a high sugar content, but it is a bit sweet. There is a very faint taste of a good brew, with good ingredients some where in it, but its hidden deep down inside under the failed attempt at a re-pitched fermentation. The only thing this has going for it is 8% abv, but when compared to say steel reserve, this is a waste of time and money. Well not money, its pretty cheap. Honestly its cheaper then say coca-cola at comparative volumes. All-in-all Id say if you strapped for cash like myself, and need a little late night buzz, pick it up, unless the store you go to offers steel reserve, then dont bother. And honestly its 100% better tasting then earthquake.

UPDATED: OCT 17, 2010 I honestly have no idea why I would try Olde English High Gravity 800. Must have been poor and desperate (or economical!).

brokensail (16401) - Dublin, California, USA - OCT 10, 2010
A: Since its a clear 40, theres really no pour required to see the appearance. A rather dark color for malt liquor, golden with a rocky white head. S: The smell is sweet and rather unoffensive. Actually some notes of bananas along with the usual tooth-rotting sweetness. Apple juice, corn syrup, corn, and even a little bit of a sweet bread aroma. T: A rather pleasant flavor, too. Sweet banana bread, apple juice, and corn syrup. A bit of a malty character to this beer which is sort of a welcome surprise. M: The body is quite full for a malt liquor. The carbonation might be lacking a little bit, unfortunately, though. D: I had my fill of this and shared it with friends (it was a buddys birthday and it was a "40s" party). All agreed this was a pretty damn good malt liquor.

Bad aftertaste, rancid mouth. Not fit for students, bums or the desperate for a drink. Nothing but horrible taste and booze. I am less of a person for having consumed this.

Pours a medium golden yellow, nose is cream corn mixed with vodka, taste is moderately grainy, butter toffee, booze, the booze just really isnt hidden well at all. I see why hobos drink this stuff.
